Neena-Jackie’s ‘Khujli’ Explores a Middle Aged Couple’s Desires

What happens when a couple, married for over 25 years, decides to scratch an old itch? Desires that you never knew existed surface and things can’t help but get a bit...kinky. Neena Gupta and Jackie Shroff star in this light hearted short film, Khujli written and directed by Sonam Nair.

It begins with Roopmati (Neena) explaining to Girdharilal (Jackie), in great detail, her understanding of BDSM from what is lately everyone’s source material for this kind of stuff, 50 Shades of Grey. The film manages to capture the excitement of a middle-aged couple who decide to venture into unknown territory, going beyond their mundane life, to explore sexual fantasies and desires in the their bedroom.

The 15-minute film very effectively manages to deliver its simple message. Veteran actors, Jackie and Neena remind us how Bollywood has been unable to exploit actors such as them.
