Story of the movie:
A love triangle is shown in the conversion. The narrative takes place in the Indian city of Banaras. Both the girl as well as the boy belong to different religions, which adds to the Love Jihad perspective.
The film incorporates all of the prominent topics of the late 1900s. It is important to recognise that such clichés are becoming outdated, and no one is interested in such any longer. Sakshi (Vindhya Tiwari) and Babloo (Prateek Shukla) had the most boring love story in college. A library scene, a college class sequence, a funny professor, and an LGBT friend inside the protagonist’s inner circle of friends aren’t exactly novel ideas.
Actors such as Manoj Joshi and Amit Behl feature in this film and play important supporting roles. Although the film is set in Banaras, the college students’ demeanour makes one wonder if this college actually exists in Banaras. If indeed the filmmaker wanted to make a movie about a factual story, why keep the tone and atmosphere of the movie unreal? The movie was clearly ‘planned’ but instead of ‘thought.’ If the filmmakers had picked a true topic and made a movie out of it, the final product would’ve been drastically different. Director Vinod Tiwari, in a delicate film, wants to please everyone, therefore he adds numerous songs. It is unquestionably a must-watch film in theatres!
