Boxed‘ tells the story of a man’s descent into madness driven by his home shopping addiction. Virk’s writing is exceptional, with a strong, well-developed character at its core. His character, a lonely yet content man whose eccentricity and compulsions unravel in the most bizarre ways.

The film’s direction is equally masterful. Virk’s ability to blend humor with darker, more disturbing elements is impressive. He maintains a perfect balance, ensuring that the tone never veers too far into one genre, but instead, straddles the line in a way that keeps the audience both entertained and on edge. The comical aspects of the protagonist’s obsession provide moments of levity, while the creeping insanity and eventual descent into madness create a palpable sense of unease.
