Star 2 out 5
Direction: Abhishek Varman
Actors: Arjun Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Revathy, Amrita Singh, Ronit Roy
Watched ” 2 States ” … 2 out 5 … not a good plan to watch on your holidays for sure Movie will make you more tired .It’s a kind of movie , you wait and pray for early finish and want to run from theatre but you can’t leave your seat coz you Paid for your ticket , pop corns n coke … expensive deal though .
I found characters played were dull n monotonous …except Ronit Roy, even quite a smaller role he left his charm behind.
Based on Chetan Bhagat’s bestselling novel “2 States” is about a Punjabi Boy and Tamilian girls who love each other. Whole movie is about getting wedding approval from their parents sharing different cultures.
In the first half, Director tries to show love story between Krish (played by Arjun Kapoor) and Ananya (played by Alia Bhatt) .Great effort but not succeeded.
In the second half, 2 States falls apart as parents kept fighting because of cultural differences .In two-and-a-half hours movie, I felt bit stretched and audience was deadly silent in second half .As sitting in audience, you can predict movie these days by observing your fellow audiences. If people start playing with their mobile phones or checking Facebook, it means movie is not going anywhere.
Story is good if you read Chetan Bhagat’s bestselling novel “2 States” , Onscreen it’s very off .Music is really slow and not up to mark. Even Punjabi wedding song was failed to impress.
Bollywooders you can skip this one.
