Real or fantasy, nothing ‘in between’ works for audience today: Director Laxman Utekar


The film, featuring Kartik Aaryan and Kriti Sanon, revolved around live-in relationships through the eyes of small-town lovers. Today people either want fantasy films like ‘Baahubali’ or something real. There is nothing in between that works,” Utekar told PTI. “The perspective of small-town people about live-in relationship is unique and we were hopeful that it will work well with the audience.”
Utekar says the success of the film stems from the cast and crew’s hard work. Audience are bored to see a hero getting down from chopper or having a big house. We had them from Juhu or Bandra so their hero comes in a Ferrari, shoot happens in New York and so on. “Every writer, technician and all those who have worked hard to make this film great and sensible should get the credit. We are overwhelmed,” he added. Latest Videos

But at the end of the day, the face value for any film is an actor. The success was anticipated. “The characters that we have shown in the film are presented in a real manner, like how people react to the idea of live-in – be it in small towns or metro cities.
