This tale of lovers-turned-life partners is sure to move many a heart. Nihaal (Satinder Sartaj) is a sculptor and Dimple (Aditi Sharma) is a theater artiste. The two meet at college, spend time and fall in love. They look very sweet together and their show of love is simple and endearing. Both of them have high aspirations. They dream to make successful careers in their respective fields. And, in between these desires comes their love, which is not accepted by their families. Young blood, freshly in love, they resolve to elope, not knowing what married life has in store. Soon begin minor adjustments that further turn into compromises. Brooding, unhappiness follows. The two are aware of the differences but are full of ego to address the issues. Saying sorry is one of the biggest among other things.
And suddenly, it’s time for a twist. The most unexpected one at that! Their souls get swapped and they find out what it’s like to be in the other person’s shoes. This soul exchange is done by a Baba played by Mahabir Bhullar, who wants them to learn some valuable lessons about life and relationships. What ensues is a complete story, which is worth a watch.
The story is not just about romance, it has many emotions at play. Family life, involvement of parents in a couple’s life, the influence of older siblings and their married lives, all of these factors shape the complete picture. The supporting cast play their roles with sincerity if not perfection; therefore they tug at the heartstrings. Navdeep Kaler as Nihaal’s elder brother and Raj Dhaliwal as his sister-in-law have done a great job. Their screen time is limited, yet the impression they leave is strong.
The music is melodious and meaningful as one may expect from Sartaj, he being the singer and lyricist. One more point that deserves a mention and a word of appreciation is how beautifully Chandigarh has been captured. The film collected worldwide gross collection is $23,550.
