The word ‘love’ itself carries with it an abundance of feelings and meanings that constantly change over time. The expression of love has changed over the years, is the emotion still the same? Has anyone discovered the perfect way to love? Love Aaj Kal is a film that addresses this changing dynamic of being and finding love. Our protagonists, Veer and Zoe, traverse this complicated path of love as they try their luck to find the answers to these questions. Written by Pranav Lalpuria
