A reclusive man sees an attractive woman in the bar, there is an exchange of fleeting glances and when he leaves, he forgets his lighter behind. What are the various alternatives Mumbai will throw at him. Forerunner is a short film about missed opportunities and chance meetings in a rain-soaked and jazz-infused Bombay city. The filmmaker gives tribute to Wong Kar Wai's romanticism in his frames and it is quite visible in his choice of images, use of colors, lingering shots, lamps, and mood creations. Rohit Vishwakarma is a very interesting voice to watch out for and we can't wait for more work from him!
