The outbreak of Coronavirus pandemic confined the whole country to their homes for nearly two months. With some utilizing the period to explore creative sides, some focused on binge-watching web content and spend time with family. As the pandemic brought across many changes to everyone's lifestyle, Netflix is coming up with an anthology of short films shot at home that touches upon different aspects and impacts of the lockdown. Titled Home Stories, the anthology of four shorts will release on Netflix's YouTube page on June 12 at 5 pm.
Ahead of its premiere, the makers of Home Stories dropped in the trailer on social media. The anthology is a collection of films titled Out With It, Will You Be My Quarantine, Delivering Smiles and Web Ne Bana Di Jodi. They are directed by Sahirr Sethi, Anubhuti Kashyap, Tanvi Gandhi and Ashwin Laxmi Narayan.
Out With It features Arjun Mathur as Angad who fears to step out of the house amid the pandemic. However, when his friends convince him that it is okay to go out, he seeks answers by tuning into the podcast of 'Saviour'. The second short film is Will You Be My Quarantine with Saba Azad and Imaad Shah. It is the story of Vaishnavi's and Rehan's one night stand that results into trouble when the lockdown is announced. Delivering Smiles featuring Tanmay Dhanania is about a food delivery person who faces his own challenges amid lockdown. The fourth film is Web Ne Bana Di Jodi. It is about a young girl played by Apoorva Arora whose plan to get married is spoilt due to the lockdown. It also stars Veer Rajwant Singh, Rakesh Bedi and Aradhana Bedi. But with the help of web conferencing, the ceremonies take place.
