2 States review

Story :

2 States places the cultural difference and conflict under the spotlight. It is a love story of a Punjabi boy Krish Malhotra (Arjun Kapoor) who hails from Delhi and Ananya Swaminathan is a pure Tamilian from Chennai. They fall in love while studying at IIM Ahmedabad and soon after find a respectable job. Therefore, now it is time for them to convince their polar opposite families for their marriage. As Krish says in the movie narration, they began their mission to make their families fall in love with each other. The movie shows the hilarious and eventful tactics and measures the couple adopt in order to get married.

Analysis :

The direction by Abhishek Varman is the silent underlying force that makes movie entertaining and interesting. He uses all the elements in a right measure without overusing any, the cultural differences are sensitively and intelligently used. Alia and Arjun's amazing chemistry is another high point of “2 States”. Now coming to the negative points they are not significant enough to mention.

Performance :

2 States-review

The lead acting pair has performed admirably well. Arjun Kapoor is the surprise of the movie as he sheds his angry and aggressive persona of his past movies and seamlessly slips into character of Krish who is calm and composed. His narration and innocence is endearing in the movie. Alia Bhatt who had immensely impressed the critics with her sublime acting in “Highway” has once again given an accomplished performance.

The supporting cast also can't be underestimated in terms of impact it had on the movie. Amrita Singh in the role of a loud Punjabi mother is funny and entertaining. Ronit Roy once again proves his acting credentials with his portrayal of a strict father. Shiv Kumar Subramaniam and Revathy as disciplined South-Indians completes “2 States.”

Final Word:2 States is an entertaining and witty movie that is a must watch for the Bollywood fans. I would like to go with rating – 3.5 star. Have a great watch and let us know your view on this one.
