The movie follows two men, Kartik and Aman, who want nothing more than to be happily and peacefully in love. Aman’s family is extremely against their relationship and turn a blind eye to his wishes, by trying to force him to marry a woman. However, they aren’t going to give up that easily; they will continue to fight and do whatever it takes, to be together.
There are still two burning questions that have yet to be answered though: Is the unconditional love of family more powerful than thousands of years of stubborn beliefs? Is it possible for even the most closed minds to change their perspectives on life? Guess there’s only one way to find out.
The trailer alone has already racked up over 50 million views within the span of a couple of days. This is outstanding news because this means that this movie is getting the publicity it deserves. Check out the trailer above to see what we mean.
