Hank and Asha
Asha, born and raised in India, is studying abroad in Prague for a year. She longs for deeper connections with people, at a time in her life when everything is about to change. Hank, a filmmaker and lonely new transplant to New York City, is still reeling from a romantic breakup and facing increasing pressure from his parents to return to North Carolina to rescue the failing family business.
"Hank and Asha” unfolds through the video letters they record and send to each other – a modern love story about two people searching for human connection in a hyper-connected world. It’s about isolation, identity, and the irresistible appeal of entertaining life’s what-ifs.

Asha's comment in the beginning of the movie, about connections & meaningful impact. Which has more beauty? A life long connection between two people Or a connection that lasts for only a moment? The ending left me sad, but her opening comments came back to me. Their relationship was meaningful. It was beautiful.
I love these smaller budget movies that rely on character development. It lacked big Hollywood names, bombs, killings, sex, drugs, car chases. Yet it left an impact on me. It told a story and I got lost in the movie.
Asha contacts Hank, whom she hopes is not a stodgy old man, regarding questions she had after seeing one of his movies at a film festival in Prague. From there, Hank responds via videotape and the two begin a sweet friendship that turns into a budding romance. When Asha reveals to Hank some crucial news, the relationship is altered.
I don't want to give out too much information because even just telling a potential viewer details would not give the film justice as it is definitely something one has to experience to appreciate. It's an atypical film in every way and speaks volumes of how social connections forged via technology can be real and yet fleeting.
I'm glad I got to know Hank and Asha--even for a little while--and wish I could follow up on the rest of the story.
The actors were both exceptional. The cinematography in Prauge and NYC was good.
I came from a tiny town. Back to middle&high school, I used to have a 'friend' like Hank. We communicate with emails, videos, phones and letters for six yrs. He lives in a fancy big city of China where I dreamed to meet him there. I tried and failed. Before going to college, we end up being good friends, just friends. I couldn't face to him for a long time. It is so easy to disappear when you are only talking through tech tools. You just need to turn off the computer, hide your cellphone and get away from Internet. When you were heading home, there will not be a surprise that he's standing in front of your house. After a long time, he wrote me a letter which said whenever I turn around, he'll be there for me, as the best friend. Then I replied to say so will I. End of story.
By the way, we finally met once after he got married and I am also with someone. We met, talk and laugh. However, talking about past, you can only be silent. I know we are doing just well and happy. But I don't wanna look back to it. Memory hurts.
