Short Film ‘Swiped Out’ Explores Modern Online Dating Culture

Award-winning short filmmaker Karan Choudhary has revealed that his next project will look at how modern singles are using online dating platforms to find love.

‘Swiped Out’ will focus on ‘Neil’, a young man who is under pressure from his traditional Indian mother to settle down, get married and start a family. The comedy then follows all of the trials and tribulations that he experiences on his Tinder journey.

However, he finds that it is not as easy as it first seems and calls on his two roommates for assistance.

Digital Weekday says: “Swiped Out is challenging the old-fashioned way of falling in love with the rise of dating apps and all they have to offer.”

The film is currently in production, with the help of co-director Shawn Regruto, and is due to be released in the fall of 2020.

Choudhary’s 2019 production ‘The Timpepiece’ won the ‘Best LGBT Short’ at the Indie Short Fest in Los Angeles. The story followed an unlikely friendship between a middle-aged homosexual man and a young heterosexual Indian man, who bond over their individual experiences of being in the minority.

Dating apps have been finding their way into pop culture more over the past few years, as they become a bigger part of everyday life. Netflix released two films, titled ‘Swiped’ and ‘The Perfect Date’, that are based on students that create their own dating products.
