- Kuchh Beeghe Alfaaz
Yoodlee Films’ Kuchh Beeghe Alfaaz is an underrated movie about new age romance set in Kolkata. The movie dwells around the daily radio show ‘Kuchh Bheege Alfaaz,’ which is an episodic series of unrequited love stories hosted by RJ Alfaaz. In reality, however, this RJ he prefers to be detached and anonymous to the world. On the other hand, there is Archana who works in an agency and believes in living her life to the fullest.

This movie for those who have different ideas of love but they still love, which is important.
- Ek Ladki ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga
Ek Ladki ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga directed by Shelly Chopra Dhar talks about the love which is largely looked down upon by society. It is the story of Sweety, a closeted lesbian, and how she tries hard to come out to her orthodox Punjabi family. We find ‘love’ expressed differently in this movie as the heroine agrees to marry a person her father likes. Slowly and surely however, Sweety decides to fight back and come of out the closet finally.
This movie is for those who help us be what we want to be.
