A love triangle between a rich businessman, his dearest friend and an employee.
When a romantic film releases a day before Valentine's, the expectations from it are quite high among lovers and love story buffs. 'Mitwaa' essentially packs a punch and delivers a story that has all the elements of a typical love story and yet is very believable too. As is clear from the promos, the film is a love triangle. For the first few minutes, you might feel like watching a combination of 'Kuch Kuch Hota Hai' and 'Ghajini' (minus the violence) but 'Mitwaa' comes in its own gradually as the plot unfolds.
Let's cut to the chase. So the film is focused on the lives of its three leads; the playboy and business tycoon Shivam Sarang (Swwapnil Joshi) who has a way with the girls and is not remotely modest about it, Shivam's dear friend and trusted lieutenant Avnee (Prarthana Behere) and the reserved new employee Nandini (Sonalee). It starts with Shivam celebrating his daughter's birthday minus his wife and then going to meet her in Goa. A flashback explanation follows and the film proceeds with Shivam and Avnee recalling the circumstances that have led them to where they are today. Avnee is in love with Shivam who doesn't believe in love and commitment until he meets Nandini who initially ignores his advances but then falls for him. Sounds typical till now? Well there is a background story of Nandini that turns the complete narrative of the plot on its heels. Does Shivam marry Nandini? Or does Avnee's love succeed in bringing him closer to her?
All the three leads have done a beautiful job. Swwapnil might not look as the quintessential lover boy but he oozes charm and carries his dapper character off with style. Sonalee sans makeup plays her role of a girl trapped between love and marital ties well and Prarthana is good as the girl who is ready to sacrifice her love. Swwapnil and Sonalee scorch up the screen with their passionate smooch and chemistry.
In the story department, there is a lot of seen-that-before stuff but also many twists that hold the plot together. The film elaborates on the role of trust in a relation and the necessity of a friend to be there for you in the time of need.
'Mitwaa' is surely a good watch for this Valentine's weekend. Romance buffs, don't miss it.
