The immensely talented Manoj Bajpayee and the very beautiful Pooja Chopra starrer Ouch is a Black Comic Piece, which is centered on the characters of Vinay and Priya who work together, has been in a relationship for almost three years and are married to Anjali and Rakesh respectively.
However, their passion has brought them to a point where they have to take a call on their relationship and then they decide that they will divorce their spouses and marry each other.
A date is also set when they would break the news and post that they would meet at their regular place for rendezvous. Vinay somehow confesses to his wife and lands at the hotel. Priya arrive a little later carrying a suitcase. Ouch is what happens next.
What Neeraj Pandey feels about the film?
While talking about his film, director Neeraj Pandey said “The story of Ouch is an amalgamation of human emotions and their feelings. As the story unfolds, it is interesting to see what a man and a woman who are having an affair outside of their marriages do or not do to be with each other. I have approached the story with a contemporary Indian outlook and the way Manoj and Pooja have further brought the sentiments alive through their characters, it is commendable. As a filmmaker, it is very important to be able to showcase your work freely and I believe Royal Stag Barrel Select Large Short Films is a great platform which lets you be as creative as possible.”
