“A WOMAN CAN BE BEAUTIFUL AND AN IDEAL MODEL AND SHE WILL BE PHOTOGRAPHED WELL, BUT SHE WILL APPEAR IN FILM AND IT WON’T WORK. WHAT WORK IS SOME FUSION OF PHYSICAL BEAUTY WITH SOME MENTAL FIELD OR WHATEVER YOU CALL IT. I DO KNOW …”

What’s love got to do with it? Revolving around the ups and downs of arranged marriages and how cross-cultural differences play a vital role between couples, this film is set to release on 27th January 2023 and is a must-watch and awaited movie at the box office.
There is a desi wedding, dance, musicals and crazy performance as Sajal in her interview on the red carpet said “I asked the director! How crazy do you want me to go? He answered ‘as much as you can’.”
Sajal Ali and Lily James are seen doing a wild dance in it but in a desi way their colorful fashion styles like lehenga choli, wonderful aesthetic Saaris, and manly wide sherwanis.
Jemima Khan in her interview disclosed the fact the movie is based on true stories and real characters she came across during her journey of 10 years spent in Pakistan. “The film is my take on some very successful arranged marriages and having some pre-conceived ideas about what they might be like, seeing them up close, seeing them happy including the younger generation that is slightly more intellectual assist these marriages that are very consensual arrangements. And this is also me looking at, kind of different approaches of how to define lasting love as someone who’s been, quite useless at it, personally.”
Shabana Azmi Bollywood legend added, “I think what has happened now is that the world has shrunk, becoming a global village, and we are recognizing that cultures need to be understood in their own terms rather than being explored through the lens of the west on the east.”
The movie is free from the fundamentals of society, with no terrorist activities, no comparison of who is better than the other, and no uninspiring tactics.
So if you’re interested in Rom-com plays do watch out for this epic journey of love and friendship revolving around a trio of stars.
‘The yearning for intimacy, the yearning for love, does not belong to identity, it belongs to us all.’
