A story about a romantic journey of a culturally opposite couple - Krish Malhotra and Ananya Swaminathan. They meet at the IIM-Ahmedabad College and during the program they fall in love. Complications arise after the program comes to an end and they decide to get married.

Krish and Ananya belong to two different states of India. Krish, a North Indian Punjabi boy from Delhi, and Ananya, a Tamilian Brahmin from Chennai. They take a conscious decision; they won't get married until their parents agree. Everything goes downhill when their parents meet. There is a cultural clash and the parents oppose the wedding.

To convert their love story into a love marriage, there lies a tough battle ahead of the couple. For it is easy to fight and rebel, but much harder to convince. Will Krish and Ananya's love for each other sustain the battles? Will they manage to convince their parents and make it to their wedding?

2 States was making waves even before the movie was officially announced. Given how successful adaptations of Chetan Bhagat`s works have been, it was safe to assume that the upcoming 2 States would be no different. Though high expectations often lead to disappointment, 2 States begs to differ. Loosely based on Chetan Bhagat`s life, 2 ... ...Read full review

Krish Malhotra (Arjun Kapoor) and Ananya Swaminathan (Alia Bhatt) meet at IIM A and fall in love. It takes a while to reach the state where they want marriage, and that is all to the good. ...Read full review
Madrasis are dark, Punjabis are cash-obsessed, and never the twain shall meet. Those familiar prejudices make for a legitimate movie pitch, but 2 States, directed by first-timer Abhishek Varman, is a frustrating case of a promising premise that doesnt fully fructify into a compelling film.Adapted from Chetan Bhagats autobiographical novel, the film coasts along nicely while focusing on Krish (Arjun Kapoor) and Ananya (Alia Bhatt), who meet on campus at IIM Ahmedabad and quickly fall in love. These portions are handled with appropriate lightness, and the actors share a comfortable chemistry as they sing songs, make gooey eyes at each other across the classroom, and slip under the sheets without much fuss. Speed bumps arise when the couple gets ready to step out of campus and into the real world to pursue jobs and a shared future. A shrewdly orchestrated Graduation Day meet-and-greet between the Malhotras and the Swaminathans goes badly. The Tam-Brahms (Revathy and Shiv Subramaniam) immediately label Krishs Punjabi side uncultured, even as his overbearing mum (Amrita Singh) goes on and on about their daughter having phansaoed her gora chitta son. ...Read full review
