“Die Why Die” mental health film review

It is a movie by GenNext Studio & Creative Motion Art that tackles a touchy topic. Balancing professional and personal life can be difficult with the daily stresses, anxieties and can spiral out of control.
A difficult daily life combined with not clearing your mind and intra-personal issues can be devastating.
Making a situation within one’s mind becomes so extreme that he/she take such a drastic step to break away from the situation. The film shows the aftermath of an attempt and what the person feels immediately after the action, providing a crucial social message. Reviewing the film, it is hard not to feel moved by the scenes and sounds.

The Filmmakers take the bull by the horns by showing the contents in a raw manner while providing an example that experimenting to further social issues using the power of story-telling can indeed create a better world. They confront a contemporary developmental issue and although hard-hitting, it is encouraging to see a story that dives deep into the feelings of a person undergoing depression.

The narrator-actor Shadab has pulled off the emotionally heavy narration and expression with a lot of heart and authenticity providing depth to the director’s vision. Leaving a message of hope and action at the end of the film. With that being said, the director Talha Sultan Chaudhry and producer Faisal Simon have done a wonderful job when maintaining the sanctity of the topic.
The film puts out the message, staying within yourself will only increase suffering, and seeking help or communicating will be a small step but a giant shift towards mental peace and wellness.

My Rating : ⭐⭐⭐⭐
