Amazon miniTV is gearing up to release the Amit Sadh starrer romantic short film titled Ek Jhalak for free. The upcoming light-hearted modern romance has been helmed by Deepmala and apart from Sadh, it also stars Sushma Seth, Ashish Ghosh and Zeeshan Ayyub as the narrator.

The plot of the 19-minute short movie reveals that it is set in an Indian suburb, where a single father becomes fond of his new neighbour and even without meeting her at all, he attempts to discover her personality just by getting glimpses of her from his balcony. He finds himself getting attracted to this person, who’s a mother, daughter and a working woman.

The teaser of the romantic film released earlier this year in March shows Amit as a hopeless romantic man who is desperate to get one look at a woman who just moved into his neighbourhood.

Talking about the short film, Sadh said in a recent statement that Ek Jhalak is an interesting approach to romance, with a surprise twist.

While the writer-director of Ek Jhalak said that she is really looking forward to the launch of the film on Amazon miniTV. “The service is an interesting way to connect with viewers across every part of India and present well-crafted short stories that capture viewers' imagination and have them coming back for more,” Deepmala added the statement.

Talking about the same, Vijay Subramaniam, head of content at Amazon shared that he is confident that this short film will resonate well with hundreds and millions of customers on the Amazon shopping app.

Ek Jhalak has already won numerous accolades around the globe including a Special Mention at the 10th Dada Saheb Phalke Film Festival, and the Audience Choice Award at the Tagore International Film Festival.

The short film is set to stream for free on the platform from September 1.
