Directed by Hanu Raghavapudi, the film features Dulquer in the role of a lieutenant officer in the Indian army. The story is set against the backdrop of Kashmir in the 1960s.
The trailer shows the crucial events in the epic love story. An orphan soldier, Lieutenant Ram’s (Dulquer) life changes, after he gets a letter from a girl named Sita (Mrunal Thakur). He meets her and love blossoms between them. When he comes back to his camp in Kashmir, he sends a letter to Sita which won’t reach her.
After 20 years, Rashmika Mandanna and Tharun Bhascker are given the task of giving the letter to Sita. When they are unable to find her, they choose to find Ram. It’s more difficult than finding Sita. The biggest hurdle is definitely Ram’s superior Brigadier Vishnu Sharma (Sumanth).
Everything about this love story feels and looks epic and both the journeys- the love story of Ram and Sita in the 60s and the search to find them in the 80s look intriguing.
Speaking at the trailer launch, Dulquer said that he accepted the movie at a juncture in his career where he decided he won’t do any love stories. “When Hanu sir brought this story, everything about it felt so timeless and epic. I told myself I’ll do one last love story. One for the ages. It’s been the most beautiful experience. I got to see places in India I’ve never seen in my life.,” he said.
