Vishal Bhardwaj has come up with a new short film. Titled Fursat, the Ishaan Khatter and Wamiqa Gabbi starrer has been shot on an iPhone 14 Pro. The 30-minute musical was released on YouTube on Friday.

The film shows Ishaan as a time traveller who is obsessed with controlling the future. It is a race against time as Ishaan tries to save his ladylove Wamiqa, who is on a train in Rajasthan that will soon be attacked by dacoits. Oh, and Wamiqa is also getting engaged on the train. The film frequently cuts back and forth in time to give us context on Ishaan and Wamiqa’s relationship. It is also interspersed with dance performances that express the emotions the characters are undergoing.

The short features an original soundtrack by Bhardwaj and lyricist Gulzar, with featured vocalists such as Sukhwinder Singh and Kailash Kher. It has been shot by cinematographer Swapnil Sonawane and features choreography by Shiamak Davar.

Earlier this year, Apple debuted a 17-minute short film titled Chinese New Year – Through the Five Passes, directed by Peng Fei. Last year, director Park Chan-wook released a short film Life is But a Dream, shot with the iPhone 13 Pro.

In 2020, the Academy Award-winning director of La La Land and Whiplash. Damien Chezelle also directed a short for Apple titled Vertical Cinema. The nine-minute film was shot using iPhone 11 Pros and was filmed in portrait mode.

Ishaan was last seen in the horror comedy Phone Bhoot, and will next star in Pippa. Wamiqa has worked with Bhardwaj on his Modern Love Mumbai short, and will reunite with the filmmaker on his upcoming Netflix film Khufiya.
