What Happened To Khalid In The Movie ‘The Third Person’?
In the movie ‘The Third Person’ starring Pierce Brosnan, one of the main characters is a stalker named Khalid (Brosnan). Khalid takes his stalking seriously and starts to stalk and annoy the woman whose phone he is texting. He begins harassing her.
Khalid has been eating lunch in the park every day’s newspaper in a coffee shop only to watch news on TV at his laptop. It is the same routine every day.
The story revolves around Khalid stalking his ex-girlfriend and using her phone number to call her house. Once he receives the call from the cellphone number of the girl’s phone, he freezes and ends the call. And this sets in motion a series of events that change the lives of everyone involved.
On the other hand, I felt this was a film that did not entirely get across to me. The basic idea of a stalker who would like to cause harm to a person he had wronged is something that one can easily relate to but in the end there is no real damage done to any person and therefore it doesn’t really mean much.
The psychological tension of the film did not really give a very good impression to me. The idea of the film should have been to show us how a stalker could be aware of his actions when he sees someone he was already interested in and then take them down as if they were not as important as before.
If this was the case, it could have been a successful movie but in the end we don’t even get the chance to see what actually happened to Khalid and how it impacted his life and our relationship with him. We only see the effect the film had on his friend who was the girl’s acquaintance and the way it made him confront his feelings for her.
As a whole, this movie could have been more interesting if it had been more focused on a certain character, which is how the story should have been written. This would have helped better the story and I would definitely recommend this movie.
