From the time the making of the movie on Chetan Bhagat’s best selling book ‘2 States’ was announced, we are keen on its release. One glance at the preview and you will instantly fall in love with Arjun and Alia as both look endearing and make a cool couple on screen. Do you think the movie will be victorious at the box-office as anticipated? Read on to find out.
The movie is about a romantic journey of a culturally reverse pair – Krish Malhotra (Arjun Kapoor) and Ananya Swaminathan (Alia Bhatt). Co-produced by Karan Johar and Sajid Nadiadwala along with Chetan Bhagat, it is being directed by debutant Abhishek Varman.
The couple, Krish (a North Indian Punjabi boy from Delhi) and Ananya (a Tamilian Brahmin from Chennai), meets up at the IIM-Ahmedabad and fall in love but trouble crop up when they decides to tie nuptial knot. But their plans are in a dilemma when the parents meet up. Reason – a conflict of cultures and the parents resisting the marriage.
To translate their love into marriage, the couple has to face a tough battle. Will Krish and Ananya continue to love each other even after the scuffle? Will they be able to successfully persuade their parents and make it to their wedding ceremony? The climax is worth watching on the big screen.
Songs & Music
The perky official title track with eccentric verses will elevate your mood at once. The Locha-e-ulfat sung by Benny Dayal stir us once again with expressive yet lively offering.
Subsequently Mast Magan, a duet delivered by Arijit Singh and Chinmayi Sripada has introduced a stunning sufi experience to this loving track and the singers are totally honest.
While Iski Uski sung by Shahid Mallya and Akriti Kakkar is an earsplitting track, it doesn’t have lasting impression once the song comes to an end. Chandaniya by K Mohan and Yashita Sharma is a striking guitar track ideal for long journey.
The final track of the album Hulla re sung by Shankar Mahadevan, Siddharth Mahadevan and Rasika Shekhar, is a Punjabi number packed with typical dhol and Punjabi lyrics.
What we like is fresh voice, little duplication, cheering composition and lyrics make this album a treat.
Overall ‘2 States’ is much-awaited, refreshing and lovable rom-com worth watching this weekend!
