Mumbai: Romedy NOW will premiere the utterly cute rom-com, ‘What If’, on Sunday, July 31, 2016, at 9 PM.
The Irish Canadian film is a romantic comedy, directed by Michael Dowse, based on the play, ‘Toothpaste and Cigars’. Released in 2013, the film narrates the story of Wallace, who is disappointed with a string of failed relationships. When he meets Chantry, who is an animator, he decides to put his love life on hold and strikes a friendly connection with her.
Chantry, on the other hand, is dating Ben and is living in with him. It is only after a series of co-incidences and close intimacy that brews amidst the friendship, that both of them ponder, ‘what if, your best friend is the love of your life?’
The film stars Daniel Radcliffe and Zoe Kazan, who awe the audiences with their bubbly chemistry and interesting performances throughout the film. The movie premiered at the Toronto Film Festival and received nomination for the Best Picture at the 2nd Canadian Screen Awards. The screenplay won awards for the Best Adapted Screenplay at the same awards ceremony.
An interesting trivia about the film is that this is Daniel Radcliffe’s first contemporary character that he’s ever played, his previous project being the Harry potter series. He said, “There was something lovely about just stepping up on set and talking.”
