Jointly produced by Anurag Kashyap and Karan Johar, Hasee Toh Phasee is an upcoming movie starring Siddharth Malhotra and Parineeti Chopra. The trailer and the song Zehnaseeb from the movie have become a rage on the social media and they give the impression that this movie is just another rom-com. However, Karan Johar said it isn’t a rom-com and instead, it is a coming-of-age film of two youngsters and shows how their paths cross at various instances in life.
It is set around Nikhil (played by Siddharth) and Meeta (played by Parineeti) and it covers their story over a period of ten years. He first meets her at her sister Deeksha‘s wedding where he falls in love with another sister Karishma. The film then jumps off to the day when Nikhil and Karishma are getting engaged; however, her father doesn’t approve of him because of his laid-back attitude. He promises Karishma that he will prove himself in a week and then get engaged.
After this, he is introduced to Meeta once again by Karishma, who wants Nikhil to help Meeta get into a hotel. Because she is Karishma‘s sister and due to the fact that they had met earlier, he offers her a stay at his home, with his crazed out family. How they get close to each other and fall in love forms the rest of the story.
Will it be accepted by the audiences?
