Meenakshi Sundareshwar: distance makes the heart more dramatic

“Meenakshi Sundareshwar” is a story about a stubborn and confident woman who enters a marriage with an engineer who is driven and sullen, but loving in his own way. 

For a Bollywood rom-com, it is unusually unpredictable.

Netflix describes “Meenakshi Sundareshwar” as “charming, quirky and heartfelt,” which pretty much sums it up. The movie deals with the drama of joining two families and trying to make a life together while separated by distance.

The movie starts out like a classic rom-com with a mix up that leads to the unlikely meeting of two young people who fall for each other. 

However, once the dancing and feasting is over, the honeymoon is cut short as the reality of a long distance relationship with the husband she just met and living with a whole new family sets in for Meenakshi.

The movie also has moments of comedy as Meenakshi tries to make a life for herself, while living with her in-laws in Madurai while her husband resides in Bangalore for work.

“Meenakshi Sundareshwar” was released on Nov. 5 and is available on Netflix. If rom-com lovers are looking to mix it up, take a trip to India with “Meenakshi Sundareshwar.”
