In association with Ultra Indian Derby

Do you believe in fate? I do. 

I believe that everything that happens to us is a part of the grand design of life. It has been decided, destined or whatever another fancy verb you might like to use here. Still, knowing that everything is laid down in our fate, we don’t learn to recognize the signs till things actually begin to happen. Falling in love is just one of those beautiful moments that catches us completely unaware and changes our lives forever.

And trust me when I say this, that my beliefs in love and serendipity were only strengthened when I chanced upon this adorable little short film called “Half Ticket.” 

In a world riddled with work woes and disillusionment in love, here blossoms a tale of a meet-cute that literally can put a smile on the most cynical of people. Starring Naveen Kasturia of TVF Pitchers fame and Gunjan Malhotra, the short film delves into a day in the lives of these extremely relatable characters, where they chance upon a half ticket each to the Ultra Indian Derby and how it leads them into one of the most charming blind dates ever.

Their apprehensions, their cynicism and even their doubts about going on a blind date in this time and age, melts away into moments of profound comfort. 

So does fate intervene again and unite the clearly star-crossed lovers or does it allow them to go their own separate ways? That is something only watching till the very end can reveal. But all in all here’s a tale that offers a refreshing slice of optimism that every “once-bitten-twice-shy” person needs to hold on to.
