The teaser and the song 'Shune Ne' have made it quite clear that Pratim D Gupta’s upcoming film Love Aaj Kal Porshu (2020), featuring Arjun Chakraborty and Madhumita Sircar in the leads, is a new-age romance the millennials would like to relate with. However, as the trailer introduces the character of Paoli Dam, it suggests that the film might be having ample thriller elements in it.

The trailer takes on a dreamy ride with its magical frames featuring Chakraborty and Sircar and the dialogues too create anticipation for an impending passionate romance. Chakraborty not only looks charming and appealing, but he also probably has been lent the best look in a film so far. His dialogue delivery also carries subtle elements of romance, contributing to the chemistry he forms with his co-star, who is equally refreshing onscreen.

The dreamy journey is cut through Kalki Maitra’s (Dam) entry in the trailer. While Chakraborty and Sircar introduce themselves with different names and avatars, Kalki’s entry with the tagline ‘Love can be a game’ disrupts the illusion of a magical romance.

Kalki seems like the mastermind behind a scheme, which involves Chakraborty and Sircar, without their full awareness. When they sense their impending peril, they probably create their own narrative of a love that overpowers all the evil, that perhaps Kalki represents.

Though it would be too early comment whether the episode of Kalki complicates a simple and compact plot of romance, but it definitely raises different kind of expectations by creating a jarring effect in a seemingly millennial love story.

Love Aaj Kal Porshu is slated to release on 14 February. Watch the trailer below and let us know if you are keen to watch the film.
