New Delhi, April 6 (IANS) "Love Lies and Seeta", a low budget, urban romantic comedy, is set to hit theatres May 4.
Made at a shoestring budget of Rs.15 million, the movie narrates the story of three men in love with a girl named Seeta, who doesn't believe in love. It is directed by New York-based Indian origin filmmaker Chandra Pemmaraju.
"The idea was simple - to make the first-of-its-kind, fun, young urban romantic comedy in an extremely low budget yet with international standards," Pemmaraju said in a statement.
"The movie took a year-and-a-half to make. I enjoyed the process of writing the story as well as making the movie, and I hope the Indian audiences will like the movie as much as I liked making it," he added.
The film is shot in Manhattan and Brooklyn with an ensemble cast of Indian-American as well as American actors.
It features Melanie Kannokada, a former Miss India USA, Arjun Gupta, Lavrenti Lopes, Michael Derek, Leah Kavita, Caroline Korale, Daniel Wilkinson, Rob Byrnes and Aaron Katter in key roles.
In the film, Rahul, Tom, and Bhavuk meet the beautiful Seeta at different stages in their lives. As the friendship among the three men grows, a chance encounter with Seeta makes them realise they fell in love with the same woman.
They reach out to their friends outside the group to cope with the situation.
