Usman Mukhtar, best known for his role in Sabaat, and model-actress Rubya Chaudhry have done a stellar performance in the short film Bench, which was recently released on YouTube on Thursday.

Usman’s directorial debut also features Rubya Chaudhry and both are sharing screen space together in a 12-minute long short film.

The film, scripted by Ali Mudar, began with a drone shot of lush greenery and later it followed that the couple’s marriage is on the brink of a breakdown as it showed the conversation between the two characters Rubya who plays the wife and Mukhar’s character who plays the husband.

Mukhtar has given the viewers a wonderful and emotionally-raw short film. However, the film is book-ended with two songs performed by Natasha Humera Ejaz,

Proudly, Bench was also shortlisted for the Cannes International Independent Film Festival in September.
