This film takes you on a beautiful road trip from Delhi to Kolkata, and the highways prompt us to hit the roads really soon. Not only does the film take us through some beautiful parts of the City of Joy and its laid-back charm, but also makes us realise how heart-warming it is to meet our loved ones after several years. Before reaching Kolkata, we also get to see Varanasi that looks insanely beautiful at night.

Honeymoon trips can be done solo too, and this movie convinced us that. We embark on a journey with a 24-year-old girl that ventures out on a solo trip to the romantic city of Paris, then the cool Amsterdam, making friends all the way. You get to learn a lot of life lessons watching this movie; most importantly, the art of knowing yourself and that travel is the best medicine to boost your confidence.

The film took us on a road trip that we enjoyed thoroughly. One gets to see a number of unbelievably beautiful places across India through the eyes of a bride-to-be, who was kidnapped by a local goon. The drive takes you to the Aru Valley and Chandanwari in Pahalgam. Plus, the movie not only takes you through the scenic beauty of the mountains, but also takes you to the plains of Delhi, Haryana, Rajasthan and Punjab. Interesting thing about this movie is that it sets you free, and gives you strength to follow your heart and travel.

Surrounded by lush green forests, and clad in its white glory, Gulmarg’s beautiful landscape has been brilliantly captured in this movie. Although Gulmarg was depicted as Manali in the first half of the movie, Ayan Mukerji’s film took us through some of the spectacular Himalayan landscapes that inspired many to grab their backpacks and set out for daunting treks. Also, the film subsequently unfolds and takes us to landmark heritage sites like Hadimba Temple in Manali, Chittorgarh Fort, and Udaipur’s City Palace other than Paris and the likes!
