Aamir Qureshi’s short film “Gullak- The Money Pot” proves that the selfless love of parents is what makes them the most important people of our lives
A few days ago, we got our hands on the exciting trailer of Aamir Qureshi’s latest short film “Gullak- The Money Pot”. Where the video was hardly 30-seconds long, but it left us craving for more.
Finally, the short film has been released on YouTube and it was definitely worth all the excitement. Once again Aamir Qureshi managed to sum up so many emotions in just a few minutes and left us with us with a heartfelt message that will leave you all teary-eyed.
“Gullak- The Money Pot” revolves around the story of a traffic constable played by Sohail Sameer. Although poor, he is honest with his job and loves his wife and a son.
His wife is habitual of saving a chunk of money from his salary month and assures him that he’ll thank her later for this. She has not educated herself but dreams of sending their son to the best school in the city.
The 10-minute video showed their simple yet happy life until something unexpected happens all of a sudden.
The man falls ill after having a stroke in the middle of the road. His colleague takes him to the hospital where he finds out that he will need a lot of money to get his angiography done. Even though a bit scared but somewhere in his heart, he is satisfied that his wife has saved money and now it can be used.
However, when he reaches home, he finds out that his son has got the admission in one of the best schools in the city. Even though he’s in the weakest position in that scene but he takes the strongest decision as a father by prioritizing his son’s education over his own health. He doesn’t tell anyone about his heart attack and continues to be happy in the success of his son.
And that moment proves it all that no matter what, a father’s love will always remain selfless.
