Director Ratnaa Sinha who made her directorial debut in 2017 with Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana (featuring Rajkummar Rao and Kriti Kharbanda) focused on india's civil service, dowry and marriage proposal gone wrong in a small town, she wanted to set her second film in a middle-class milieu and delve deep into what it means for a young boy aiming to break out of it. But little did she expect that her film would become one of the most talked about coming-of-age rom-coms, and well received by critics and audiences. Even actors Taapsee Pannu and Rajkummar Rao applause the director for making a relatable film, with a fresh new cast.
Ratnaa Sinha's the tide to cast three new actors--Prit Kamani, Kavya Thapar and Eisha Singh--has surely paid off as the new talents have received rave reviews ever since the film released in theatres on September 16. Sinha said, "I'm overwhelmed to see the audience has loved the film, and appreciated all the team efforts we put in to tell an entertaining story set in the middle class environment."
