However, her business venture seems to be intervened by her black boyfriend who gives her the ultimatum to choose between their future and her business venture.

To make the crisis worse, Ally’s hectoring mother nagging over Skype is also added to the scene. It is a real treat to watch, how the young woman fought against all the threats to make her business venture successful.

Jerrin Chandan, an MA Literature teacher in St Joseph’s Evening College, Bengaluru has shot a short film ‘Paarivala’. The short film has been seen screening at multiple places and has received positive feedback from the audience.

In a recent interview, he told the audience about what was the idea generation behind ‘Paarivala’. He spoke about how one day in his lecture he was speaking about sexuality and observed the reaction of female students. The females were seen as very uncomfortable discussing ‘Sex’.

Just this little observation led him to write down a script of the film. There are various social taboos we face in our society. One of them being that woman should restrict what they speak, whereas men have all the freedom to speak about anything.

The film highlights the reactions of society when the female law students condemn the way females are looked in society. Media gets on to these students and forces them to apologize for what they say. However, female law students are shown to be headstrong and refuse to apologize for something they haven’t done wrong.

Paarivala gave out a very strong message not just to the Indian society, but across the globe. The short film was screened internationally in about 10 universities.

A Harvard professor had written a mail to Jerrin Chandan expressing how happy he was after watching the film. The professor wrote that the movie actually highlighted how a teaching faculty should behave. The professor also mentioned that after watching the film, there was a long discussion amongst the students and teachers.

Overall, the film is really liked by everyone nationally and internationally.
