2-States-Poster

Love marriages around the world are simple. Boy loves girl. Girl loves boy. They get married. In India, there are few more steps…

 

Boy loves girl. Girl loves boy. Girl’s family has to love the boy. Boy’s family has to love the girl. Girl’s family has to love the boy’s family. Boy’s family has to love the girl’s family.

 

And if the boy and girl still love each other, they get married.

 

 

2 States is a story about a journey of one such couple, Krish Malhotra and Ananya Swaminathan. They meet at the IIM-Ahmedabad and during the course they fall in love. Complications arise after the course comes to an end and they decide to get married. Krish and Ananya belong to two different states of India. Krish, a North Indian Punjabi boy from Delhi, and Ananya, a Tamilian Brahmin from Chennai. They take a conscious decision; till their parents don’t agree they won’t get married. Everything goes down hill when the parents meet. There is a cultural clash and the parents oppose the wedding. To convert their love story into a love marriage, the couple faces a tough battle in front of them. For its easy to fight and rebel, but much harder to convince.

 

Will Krish and Ananya’s love for each other sustain the battles? Will they manage to convince their parents and make it to their wedding?  The film thus is a humorous take on inter community marriages in India.
