How does the director of films like Maach Mishti & More and Ami Aar Amar Girlfriends envision modern love in this series? “As a fan of Modern Love, the series and the generation, Boyfriends & Girlfriends, it is I who is desperately trying to understand the young people of today and to judge how far they are from me. And for me, I think the essential difference is the need to be on social media. The Toxicity and Insta quotes are more of a thrown away for kicks. But to be honest, the beauty of love and friendship is like good music. It’s the same and timeless. May the feeling of falling in love be as euphoric and the fall as heartbreaking as it always has been, except I think it’s a little difficult to navigate the maze of existing on social media and that it becomes a trap.
“Every now and then between movies it’s nice to go back into a time machine and see myself through that prism. Feel the adolescent spirit. Wanting to create such a show was just to see if I still understand them. And I had a fabulous cast, ”Mainak says. Suvankar Paul directed the series.
