2 States, the film, Produced by Sajid Nadiadwala and Karan Johar, the film is directed by Abhishek Varman and stars the Kapoor lad Arjun along with his alleged lady love, Alia from the Bhatt clan, in lead roles.
The bestseller book by Chetan Bhagat is being rolled into a movie with the same name as the book, and is releasing on 18th April 2014.
Produced by Sajid Nadiadwala and Karan Johar, the film is directed by Abhishek Varman and stars the Kapoor lad Arjun along with his alleged lady love, Alia from the Bhatt clan, in lead roles.
The film’s story isn’t really something we aren’t aware of. The tale of non-acceptance of inter caste marriages in our country and falling for somebody from another state / caste, has been in the cinemas since the inception of Indian cinema. I am guessing that you don’t require any further briefing about the plot. We all are quite familiar with the ‘happy ending’ of a Bollywood story.
While the film will touch upon a serious concern in our country, why is there so much of a hue and cry about this film? These could be the possible reasons…
Alia Bhatt and Arjun Kapoor’s link up
While many stated Arjun was like a kabab mein haddi between Varun and Alia, those rumours went away with the wind. Don’t you think this twenty one year old is moving fast with each film she delivers? While Alia denied the rumours about seeing Arjun, on Koffee with Karan, they were seen at many private events and parties cozying up and enjoying each other’s company. Even, I am quite eager to know whether they can pull off their off screen chemistry to the big screen.
Alia Bhatt’s acting capability
Is it just me or even you recollect Alia as the blonde bimbette of Student of the Year? In spite of gaining positive remarks from industry insiders as well as film critics for Highway, I still do not see a change in her acting skills. In some parts of the trailer, she still appears as the girl from SOTY. The only difference in her acting is would be the steamy scene with Arjun. That is something that could change our opinion.
Arjun’s fame post Gunday
Although Gunday was all about Ranveer Singh and Priyanka Chopra, Arjun played his part of being a side actor very well, in spite of Ranveer stealing the limelight. The success of the film did bring this Kapoor lad to our notice but the fame was short lived. Arjun has never been that kind of an actor who’s gone off his way to promote a film. But post his acting in Gunday, I would surely love to see his avatar as a love guru.
Chetan Bhagat’s novel
It’s high time we drift our focus and make real films rather than creating them from Mr. Bhagat’s novels. He is one writer whose books always gain attention due to their controversies, and film makers use this to their advantage making a film out of it. Gosh! We are fed up now. Chetan Bhagat is old school. We need something new and different to blow off our minds.
Excellent Social Networking Team
The social networking team of 2 States is doing a good job when it comes to promoting the film on various social networking sites. Be it a song release or a contest or even stills from the movie, the team is surely gaining people’s attention, especially due to their official Facebook page. Maybe not for the above points, but I am looking forward to the movie, mostly because of the promotions flooding my Facebook wall, time and again.
It would be interesting to see an alleged couple, act according to a producer, who’s an ace in portraying films based on romance; with a writer whose all controversy driven novels earn him big bucks.
