Kalki Koechlin and Sumeet Vyas’ upcoming film Ribbon shows a young couple navigating through an unexpected pregnancy and their life thereon. The trailer of the film has released and it seems like a reminder that no one, apart from Koechlin and Vyas, could have done justice to their flawed yet real roles
The film begins with the two characters freaking out about the pregnancy. Despite their doubts, they decide to go ahead and have the baby.
A few laughs here, a few tears there, and a baby girl is born. Between all of this, there’s Koechlin’s character, putting up with a sexist boss, and her own relationship with her husband which is falling apart.
To put it simply, the trailer is an insight into the complicated lives of two young lovers, who eventually become parents and deal with the changes that parenthood brings with itself. The two actors breathe life into the trailer, effortlessly — Vyas with his distinct dialogue delivery and Koechlin, with her amazing ability to mould herself into any character.
Directed and co-written by Rakhee Sandilya, Ribbon is a Red Cart Films production. It is slated to release across India on 3 November.
