“What’s Love Got To Do With It?” is an unscripted micro budget documentary feature that uses humor to expose subtle insidious conflicts at play in Indian society. What makes well-traveled urban Indians, who have freedom and privilege, choose arranged marriages over love? The individuals featured in the film grapple with decisions about how and whom to marry, at once juggling societal and parental desires with their own.
“We are delighted to partner with Saavn and Brown Girl Magazine on the promotion of this film. We are a no budget movie so the support of the community is very important to our success. What’s Love Got to Do With It? has played to packed audiences in the Mumbai Film Festival and we are excited to bring the film to audiences here in the US,”
states director Rohena Gera.
