The trailer of Ali Zafar and Aditi Rao Hydari’s film London Paris New York is just out. Have a look.
The film is written and directed by debutant Anu Menon and produced by Shrishti Arya and Goldie Behl along with Fox Star Studios.
A new couple, shot well and looks fresh. Just wish that they had paused a bit on those sketches that appear and disappear even before you can blink. More so when the film’s title is on the names of the cities. Who doesn’t like cities as characters in films? Ali Zafar and Aditi Rao are pleasing to eyes, and as a couple, there’s some kind of charming and cool comfort onscreen. Only issue – her babytalk in the last shot.
And here’s the official synopsis…
London Paris New York is a film that captures the angst of the twenties, the most dramatic period of one’s life – when you have to find a career, you have your first significant relationship and most importantly form your identity in this world.
This is story about Lalitha, a middle class south Indian girl from Chembur(an eastern suburb in Mumbai) who is on her way to New York to study politics with full scholarship, and Nikhil, a Punjabi, rich kid from Bandra (a posh western suburb of Mumbai )who is going to study Film Making in London on 100% dad’s money. They decide to hangout together one evening in London and find that they are completely drawn to each other even as their future lies on separate continents.The film follows their personal journey and their love story as they meet in London, Paris and New York for a night each over eight years. The film is in three chapters and each chapter is shot in a manner that mirrors the mental state of Nikhil and Lalitha.
