Movie Info

2 States is a story about a romantic journey of a culturally opposite couple - Krish Malhotra and Ananya Swaminathan. They meet at the IIM-Ahmedabad College and during the program they fall in love. Complications arise after the program comes to an end and they decide to get married. Krish and Ananya belong to two different states of India. Krish, a North Indian Punjabi boy from Delhi, and Ananya, a Tamilian Brahmin from Chennai. They take a conscious decision; they won't get married until their parents agree. Everything goes downhill when the parents meet. There is a cultural clash and the parents oppose the wedding. To convert their love story into a love marriage, the couple faces a tough battle in front of them. For it is easy to fight and rebel, but much harder to convince. 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? The film thus is a humorous take on inter community marriages in India. (c) UTV

Critic Reviews for 2 States

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (1)

"2 States" is an effort to go beyond formula while also embracing formulaic elements, including some nice song-and-dance sequences. The mix isn't right yet.

This is a film you can definitely skip.

Hindustan Times

The next evolution of earnestly old-fashioned family-oriented melodramas, respecting the classic traditions and ideals while infusing them with more contemporary and therefore real world-relevant and relatable sensibilities.

Audience Reviews for 2 States


2 States... I am actually in 2 states of mind. On one hand, being a big fan of the book, I felt that the movie is very true to the source and is one of the better adaptations of Chetan Bhagat's books. But on the other, its not a different Bollywood masala movie and in fact, a very mediocre one by Bollywood standards. The key ingredient in the book was that it was a very casual anecdotal book with a touch of bollywood style. But when u make it a movie, the charm is lost. +ve points: -Good acting (I actually liked the father son thread better than the romantic scenes) -Excellent songs and good placement of songs -Alia Bhat!! She is fast becoming the new Kareena -The marriage scenes at the end -ve points: -Too long -Repeated stereotype jokes -Underdeveloped Hero's role My rating: Story - 0.25 - typical bollywood love story Screenplay - 0.5 too much identical to the book and hence lacking any wow factor Acting - 1 Excellent acting from everyone (Alia Bhat and Ronit Roy stand out) Other departments - 0.5 (Good music and good production values) Overall Package - 0.5 (Good but not good enough) Total - 2.75/5
