“Fursat,” A Bollywood-Style Musical Shot Entirely on iPhone 14 Pro
Bollywood director Vishal Bhardwaj and a cast of celebrated Bollywood personalities bring to life a musical love story that celebrates the power of love, “Fursat.” Shot entirely on the iPhone 14 Pro, the film is a Bollywood-style musical that features songs, choreographed dances, and the scale of a commercial film, all packaged together on a non-commercial platform.
The film tells the story of young archaeologist Nishant who comes into possession of the ancient relic, the Doordarshak, and begins to see visions of the future. Despite losing sight of the present, Nishant sets off on a quest to rescue his childhood sweetheart Diya and their relationship when he witnesses a dire prediction involving her life. The film’s title, “Fursat,” means having time on your hands, and the core message is that love can only be found and cherished in the present, not in the past or future.
Music plays a significant role in the film, with the soundtrack housed on Apple Music in Spatial Audio for an immersive experience. The director, Vishal Bhardwaj, notes how the iPhone 14 Pro liberated him as a filmmaker, providing him with the scale he has never had before in his films. The director of photography, Swapnil Sonawane, was impressed with the iPhone’s ability to handle the demands of the film and particularly praised the Action mode and Cinematic mode features.
The cast of “Fursat” includes Ishaan, who made his acting debut in 2017 and has received praise for his work in several films, and Wamiqa Gabbi, who has featured in various Indian and international films and received critical acclaim for her performances. The film is now available for viewing and can be watched on Apple.com/in, which has a dedicated page for this production.
