Happy Endings | Directed by Ujjwal Kumar
Happy Endings presents a humorous take on the fear of death, highlighting how we tend to overthink it due to its unpredictable nature and the constant sources feeding us fear. The narrative portrays death in a unique light, categorising it as a driving force for sustainable mental health. Each character grapples with their own fears and dilemmas, yet their ultimate pursuit is for love, a fulfilling life, and the prospect of happy endings. Whether they attain these desires remains uncertain.
