Director Harish Vyas, shared, “It’s a romantic film. I wanted to address this side of romance that is subdued and wrapped in the fine nuances of daily grind. Romance in India is usually depicted through the youth but it’s not limited to them, in this case it is depicted by the younger couple like always but is instrumental in vocalizing the unexpressed love in all generations other than ‘the young’. Sanjai ji was the only person I had in mind to play this character for the kind of value he has brought to the character of Yashwant Batra.”
In a city as pure as love itself, the film is set in rustic Varanasi, a unique love story, that revolves around three couples who aim to achieve everlasting love in their own way with the exception of Yashwant and Kiran whose love story in this endeavor takes an unexpected turn. Angrezi Mein Kehte Hain is a quirky film with highly relatable characters narratingreal life situations that make the audience own the film.
Speaking to the Media, Producer Manav Malhotra said, “Angrezi Mein Kehte Hain addresses a certain neglected romance of married life amidst growing up children and the routine mundane humdrum where love gets buried underneath layers of duties and commitments of life. Our film is a quirky take on how couples lead their married lives in middle class India and is filled with heartwarming moments. Sanjai Mishra is someone who has received critical acclaim with variety of cinema backing him over years.
