Meenakshi Sundareshwar: How Sanya Malhotra-Abhimanyu Dassani starrer is an ode to modern-day long-distance relationships
Long Distance relationships are hard!
But that doesn’t mean you have to give up easily on your love!
As soon as I watched the trailer of Meenakshi Sundareshwar, I instantly liked it as it was very relatable. As someone who was in a long-distance relationship for around 9 years, I can say that they have rightly and beautifully captured the very essence and nuances. I told my husband we have to watch the drama and this way, we too can revisit our golden period when we were in an LDR.
Also, I have to say that after a long time, Bollywood has finally come up with a really good rom-com with modern sensibilities. The film stars Sanya Malhotra and Abhimanyu Dassani and from the trailer, I feel they have completely done justice to their roles, plus I am already their big fans. Dassani was so good in Mard Ko Dard nai Hota. And Sanya, who featured in amazing movies such as Pagglait, Pataakha, Photograph and Ludo, has always been my favorite.
Talking about the relatability factors, just like the characters, I and my partner both are poles apart but I feel it is for the best as the saying goes opposite attracts each other. Also, there is one scene when Sanya feels he was a changed person after visiting him in Bengaluru, which is also quite relatable as when you are in an LDR we constantly create an image on the basis of chats and calls and sometimes their physical presence is quite opposite to your expectations.
Just how Sundar says that he too needs love and patience from Meenakshi, actually it is so true. It is so very vital in any long distance relationships. Also, during long LDRs, you do feel like breaking up and ending things, as it is frustrating to not be able to meet, touch and feel! All in all, I am so looking forward to this film!
