The 'Other' Love Story tells the tale of two women falling in love at a time when homophobia was still rampant in India. It is set in the 1990s, an era before the Internet and mobile phones took over our lives, when we still had to rely on love letters and landlines to exchange sweet nothings. The series traces the love story between two neighbours, Aadya and Aanchal, who live in Bengaluru. The dialogues are in English, Hindi and Kannada. This story follows how two neighbours meet, feel something and slowly find the courage to work on their feelings. Written by Official Source

A sweet start to a big thing
18 January 2017 | by jasmeet-81357See all my reviews

As we all know, there are not many Indian movies that choose the LGBT story. The ones that do exist tend to be either a mockery or really very dark. "The 'Other' Love Story" breaks that view in so many ways. As mentioned in the title this is a love story with a bit more.

Watching it feels genuine and the 90's twist on things is great. The 2 main characters grow with each episode and things move at a nice pace, its not "insta-love"! India has always had a tough time conveying LGBT issues in society, this film focuses on that too. Hopefully those who are opposed might watch this and change their old skool ideas. Spoorthi Gumaste and Shweta Gupta have given this series a great start, a lot of people are looking for a season 2, they are lovable and easy to identify with. Give this web series a chance and try and support it too.

This series is poetry, Indian culture and romance at its Indie best. 10/10 from me, this is a love story that needs all the attention it can get in Asia. This might be the start of some positive changes towards LGBT acceptance.
