SonyLIV to commemorate World Mental Health Day with short-film ‘Lutf’
MUMBAI: Video streaming platform SonyLIV will commemorate World Mental Health Day (10th October) with a short film titled ‘Lutf’.
Directed and written by Pratish R. Nair, Lutf stars a powerful ensemble of actors like Mona Singh, Vinay Pathak, Luke Kenny, Usha Nadkarni and Sucharita Tyagi in prominent roles.
Keeping ice cream as a metaphor, this 30-minute short film celebrates life in all its nuances and oddities. The film revolves around Meghna Joshi (Mona Singh), a woman and a fear that shadows her life. As she struggles to balance it out with her husband Ravi Joshi and her family, her therapist Dr. Vipul Agarwal (Vinay Pathak) enters and adds another twist.
Sony Pictures Networks India Head Content, Partnership, and New Initiatives Amogh Dusad said, “At SonyLIV, our aim is to always push the envelope and bring unique and unheard stories for our viewers, ‘LUTF’ is one such story. The short film addresses the nuances of mental health and we are happy to showcase a story that captures life’s hardships with ease. The movie also gives out a message to viewers on the content they can expect on SonyLIV. We hope the audience enjoys ‘LUTF’ like all the other content on our platform.”
