Welcome to OTTplay Lost and Found, one podcast that talks about critically acclaimed films but lesser-known. I'm your host Nikhil.
There are films that touch a necessary nerve and there are those that furnish reality so elaborately that we find it too overwhelming to process. Today’s Lost and Found, Rakhee Sandilya’s Ribbon, is one such film. Starring India’s first web series star Sumeet Vyas (of Permanent Roommates fame) and Kalki Koechlin in the lead, Ribbon shows the mirror to the debilitating world we live in today. From being downsized at work to the precarious position of being a parent to an adolescent child, it’s all there and it’s all pretty bleak. The film revolves around a young couple grappling with job loss, the inevitable derailing of one’s career following maternity, and how the lead pair manage to pull through as a couple while dealing with a major personal setback.
Ribbon apprises us of several present-day challenges in one’s personal and professional life.
For instance, opting for maternity leave is depicted as the easiest way to terminate one’s career or at least set it back by a few years. Then, the daunting idea of not being able to protect one’s child from society’s predators can make any parent feel like a failure. But the overarching message that we can get by as long as we have each other’s back is reassuring and offers some hope in the face of adversity. Before you add this one to your playlist, here’s a disclaimer: Ribbon may not be suitable for those who find subjects such as child abuse non-palatable or offensive, and viewer discretion is advised.
This flick is currently streaming for you to watch on Eros Now, Amazon Prime Video, Disney+ Hotstar, Jio, Google Play.
