Movie Review of 2 States Starring Arjun Kapoor and Alia Bhatt

Movie 2 States is a romantic comedy based on famous writer Chetan Bhagat’s novel of same name “2 States – The Story of My Marriage”. It stars industry’s heart throb Arjun Kapoor and Alia Bhatt.¬†Principal photography commenced from 29 January 2013 with the shooting of a song. Parts of the film were shot at Chennai, Delhi, IIM-A (Ahmedabad) and Gol Limda Bhajiya House near Astodia Darwaza in Ahmedabad in August, 2013. The story is about 2 college friends, falling in love and want to get married but with the permission of their families and hence this is not just a love story between 2 people but it is about 2 families’ bonding as well.

Lead actors are the perfect choice for the movie. There was other names for lead pairs but after watching, we feel that it is good that they didnt do this movie as they may not fit well into characters. This movie is about youth, how they get in touch, fall in love and get to experience long journey between love and marriage. Arjun Kapoor’s father played by Ronit Roy is a kind of surprise element. He suddenly changes his moods by end of the movie. His wife played by Amrita Singh is a kind of loud character. Alia Bhatt’s parents are Shiv Kumar and Revathy, and they play their part well.

After interval, it becomes a bit lengthy for few minutes but ends well and hence it seems to be packed perfectly for viewers. Performances are good. In fact it is that good that we dont want the movie to end. We want to keep look into it to see what happens next and how do they tackle situation. Arjun Kapoor steals the show as he has been shown very calm and composed. He isnt fighting or even getting angry at all. On other hand, Alia Bhatt is a bit tempered. That is how the characters are and been played very well.

Ahmedabad IIM and streets of Ahmedabad have been captured nicely but would have been good if would have been shown more of them. Good movie with good contents after a long time.
