Kuch Bheege Alfaaz: Onir’s latest love story ‘Kuchh Bheege Alfaaz’ is a romance set in the world of dating apps and social media Valentine’s weekend. In modern times when Tinder, direct messaging and social media drive relationships and interaction, Kuchh Bheege Alfaaz is a romantic drama revolving around a radio jockey and poet Alfaaz (Zain Khan Durrani) and graphic artist Archana (Geetanjali Thapa). In this age of high-technology usage and instant messaging, Archana, a regular user of dating apps, dials a wrong number which connects her to Alfaaz.Director Onir’s upcoming romantic is the celebration of two people with contrasting personalities, who fall in love, through the medium of radio.Talking about the essence of the story, Onir says, ” It’s about two people, who don’t meet until the end of the film. Geetanjali’s character is broken from the outside because she has leukoderma and it is a kind of metaphor to the insecurities that we all have in life. But she is not someone who is full of self-pity. Zain’s character is that of a radio jockey, who is broken from within. These two people connect over a cause and help each other fill up the void in their lives.”The inspiration behind this film, however, comes from a personal experience. Onir shares, “I think inspiration is, in a way, being in love. So, when the script came to me, I could immediately relate to it. Also, I haven’t done an out-and-out romantic film in a long time, hence I decided to do this film.”The trailer begins with the lead character RJ Alfaaz’s voice on the radio as he hosts a show – Kuchh Bheege Alfaaz. Archana, eternally an optimist and looking for love through dating apps – connects with Alfaaz for the first time over a misplaced call, when she accidentally dials his number while trying to contact her latest blind date.Thus begins an interesting relationship between two unlikely characters, very different and yet drawn inexplicably towards each other. The movie also features the iconic love song Pehla Nasha, as a background score, underlining the impending romance between these two characters, hidden safely behind social media screens.Produced by Yoodlee Films, a venture of Saregama, Kuchh Bheege Alfaaz is slated to release on February 16 .
