Best seller being adapted to a movie is a trend that is getting popular nowadays and Filmmaker Karan Johar jumps on the bandwagon with Chetan Bhagats’s ‘2 States’ book. While many are drawing parallels between ‘2 States’ and ‘Ek Duje ke liye’ let me begin my reviewing making clear that there are no similarities as such.
The movie begins with Krish ( Arjun Kapoor) talking to a psychiatrist and shocking by making a statement that he wants to commit suicide as his life has fallen apart. Krish falls madly in love with Ananya (Alia Bhatt) from the minute he sees her at IIM –Ahmedabad campus and surprisingly she too wants to be friends with him. Krish and Ananya start off as buddies and end up as lovers who want to get married however the biggest challenge is their families. ‘Pleasing parents’ turns out to be quite a process Krish’s mom Kavita Malhotra (Amrita Singh) feels that the Ananya whom she address as ‘Madrasan’ is trapping her son. While Ananya’s mom Radha (Revathy) feels that Punjabis are ‘uncultured’. Krish tries to win over Ananya’s family by tutoring the brother, making PowerPoint presentations for the dad and trying to provide a platform to the mom to showcase her singing talent. Ananya on other hand tries to impress Krish’s mom with her cooking skills and win over his family at a social gathering.
Arjun Kapoor is perfectly casted as Krish he looks every inch like the Punjabi boy who is burdened with his parents’ tension. He looks geeky and at the same time like a guy who would go to any extent to save his relationship. Arjun makes you feel for Krish every time he gives that innocent expression he adds a lot of nuances to his character. Alia Bhatt brings freshness to the role and she plays her character with great maturity. Amrita Singh is commendable she plays that loud Punjabi mother to perfection. Ronit Roy is intense he makes sure you hate him and that is the power of an actor. Revathy is a pleasure to watch and her concert scene makes audiences clap. Shiv Kumar Subramaniam delivers a great performance as a father who expresses his emotions with few words. Achnit Kaur is very likeable as the nosy massie who loves flaunting her social status.
Abhishek Varman makes a smashing directorial debut he is from Dharma school and its evident from his direction style. Varman has also written the script for the movie and that makes the narration smooth, he smartly skips a few pages of the book which might be interesting to readers but not to viewers. Also he handles few scenes well like the violent ones at Malhotra household and the heartbroken Krish very well. Cinematography by Binod Pradhan is stupendous Editor Namrata Rao does an average job, few transitions are not smooth. Music by Shankar Ehsaan Loy is okay ‘Locha’ is one song that stays with you.
Credit also goes to Chetan Bhagat for writing such an interesting ‘story of his marriage’ he is not only a good author but also a strong screenplay writer a reason why his books translate into blockbusters. In 2 states he brings about the stereotypes Indians have about their cultures and also the fact that parents are not happy about kids picking their life partners. After 3 Idiots, 2 States will be the second time that Chetan Bhagat will score big at the box-office.
