Will Krish and Ananya's love for each other sustain the battles? Will they manage to convince their parents and make it to their wedding?
Review: Two States is a movie about common theme North Vs South. Chetan Bhagat has experienced the same situation and wrote the book on it which turned into a movie. The book was a marked success and people loved it. It’s very easy to love each other, but it’s very difficult to confess both the family members if they belong to different cast. Chetan Bhagat have never dreamed of watching his life story on silver screen. Seriously, this is a very tough formula to convince both sets of parents as far as intercaste is concerned. It is hope against hope. As far as movie is concerned, The cast was good. Apart from Alia and Arjun, the rest of the senior cast had done a remarkable good job. I enjoyed watching Revathy, Amrita singh as Mother’s fighting for the kids. That was hilarious and Breath taking moment. Ronit Roy as a drunkard father who helped his son in the end had done a superb acting. Although it was an adaptation of Chetan Bhagat’s book but some of the parts were totally different from the book. I really enjoyed watching the marriage ceremony. The Climax was a bit abrupt. I could not understand what was happening. The songs were worth listening specially “Mast magan” Song sung by Arjit Singh. The emotions were well defined
Overall, Just relax and sit back and watch the movie. It’s worth watching the minds of two different castes and enjoy the ride if life time. It is said that In love some thrill is also necessary, otherwise life would be boring. So just enjoy the thrill with a happy ending.
