Love and Shukla

European Premiere

Synopsis

Director

„Love and Shukla“ is the story of sex, love and the search for privacy in a small, one-room Mumbai chawl. Shukla, an auto driver from an orthodox Brahmin family, has never intimately known a woman other than the celluloid starlets he watches every day on the 4 inch display of his mobile phone. When his mother arranges his sudden marriage, Shukla and his new wife face the experience of more than 55% of couples in Mumbai: a new marriage, no experience in a relationship and a joint family love nest that offers no space for sex, much less a conversation. Their only respite is a line of old suitcases set up by his father to separate them from the family, a cell phone and a city of 18 million eyes.

The film stars Saharsh Kumar Shukla whose recent films include Bollywood blockbusters „Raees“, „Rangoon“, „Highway“, „Ugly“ and „Telvar“.
