I love “Love Per Square Foot”—it’s a Netflix original Indian film with a plot that’s so relatable! I first saw the promo on Instagram and was immediately drawn to its fresh look. But at the time, I didn’t have Netflix. So months later, when I finally got it, I searched for the movie—because Vicky Kaushal!!! (SCREAMING!) Sanjay Chaturvedi is played by Vicky Kaushal and Karina D’Souza is played by Angira Dhar.
I can relate to this—I spent most of my life in an apartment with my parents and had to share a bed with my elder sister. We couldn’t be together for studying because I used to read aloud!
Sanjay desperately wanted to buy a place and move out, for the obvious inconveniences of living with his parents in a small space. He worked in the IT department of a bank with a decent salary, but getting even a tiny flat in Mumbai–the financial capital of India–is hard with just “decent” pay. His application for a home loan from the same bank was rejected.
Karina, the female lead of the story, rejected the loan. She and her single mother lived in a small, terrible place and Karina wanted her own home—not luxurious, but small and cozy. Meanwhile, Jeevan Sathi—a popular match-making website—promoted an offer where a married couple could win a chance to buy a flat in a good location. Sanjay’s salary wouldn’t allow him to get a home loan from any bank alone; however, if he applied for a joint loan his request would be approved.
PS- The movie is in Hindi but you can have the subtitles ON. It’s fun movie to watch with your friend on a Friday night.
That’s all for today! Thanks for reading! 🙂
