Suhana Khan made her acting debut with a 10-minute short film The Grey Part of Blue, and Twitterati is impressed with her first foray in front of the camera.
Directed by Theodore Gimeno, and co-starring Robin Gonella, the film focuses on a young couple on a road trip. While the main purpose of the trip is for the guy to meet the girl's parents, the trip soon turns into an introspection about their relationship.
The strain on their relationship is unsaid, and yet, very much visible. And it's here that Suhana and Robin get a chance to flex their acting muscles, as their characters--in diametrically opposite manners--try to come to terms with the intangible breaks in their relations.
The film, that has been shortlisted for the 2019 Miami Independent Film Festival, has also earned praise for the beautiful track at the end of the film and the actors' performances.
A fine, sad, intimate little film you all made, @theogimeno. I sensed the dying relationship from early on in the silent moments so well executed & the crack in the cheering up Suhana's character did. You all can be proud of your work.— ClaudeRia (@itsClaudeRia) November 17, 2019
May this 'small' start lead to much more :)
I can see the potential in both Suhana and Robin in becoming Stars in the future. The use of the lighting to help tell the story was very good. As you grow in your craft I will be looking to see your name in movies in the future. https://t.co/ehyQao6f5R— judith mitchell (@jstarr445) November 17, 2019
Not to forget, great work by director @theogimeno— Jai Mehta (@JaiHMehta) November 18, 2019
Congratulations buddy. Your film was refreshing, mature and beautifully shot. It may have taken you a year to make this, but the time and effort put into it shows. Congratulations. Keep em coming. 👏🏼
In just 10 minutes, @theogimeno gave us a quiet character study of a couple who are trying to figure their relationship out. I loved everything from the direction, music and acting to everything in between. Major props to the whole team!https://t.co/u99l56neD7— Shivani Yadav (@TheShivaniYadav) November 18, 2019
#TheGreyPartofBlue is a depressing tale of teenage relationships that never settles down. The film ends abruptly that plays with absurd metaphors, which actually make you feel the essence of a troubled but a hopeful affair. #SuhanaKhan is very charming throughout. @iamsrk pic.twitter.com/2H1tJJhcld— Pallav Gogoi (@pallav_) November 18, 2019
