Love Hurts revolves around the protagonist Windy who is recuperating from a heartbreak. Mazaak Mat Karo on the other hand is about a radio jockey with a supernatural twist to the plot. The latter was produced in 2012 as part of the 48 Hours Film Project’s India chapter.
“We were a team of few with no plot, no budget and completely no idea about the genre. We had to make the film in flat two days,” says Iyer, recollecting the making of the film. He adds that the lead character in the film is played by real-life RJ Prince.
On: June 13, 8 pm onwards
