“Saawariya” is a timeless story of two young star-crossed lovers whose passions almost consume their will to the brink of self-destruction. In this eternal tale of an ode to romance, stand two lonely souls whose childlike innocence and candour only obscures their inner turmoil, anger, anxiety and desperate wait for love.
An artist, a free spirit, an idealist and dreamer, Raj, is certain that he has found his ultimate dream when he arrives at a quaint picturesque town. A place surrounded by mountains, shrouded in mist and enveloped in beauty, mythical enough to be a painterâ€™s vision or a poetâ€™s memory.
However, destiny paints a different picture for Rajâ€¦ One silent bright and starry night, he spots a mysterious girl draped in black, standing alone at a bridge.
This chance encounter introduces him to Sakina, a shy and quiet, melancholic and enigmatic girl who continues to intrigue him. Thus follows the beginning of a new friendship, where Raj with his most charming ways and an undying spirit tries to win Sakinaâ€™s heart.
Raj is unable to accept her haunting past and their friendship pulls him into a whirlwind of desire, madness and romance.
Through Raj and Sakinaâ€™s journey together, we are reminded of the fragility of the human heart. In the coupleâ€™s anguish and test of faith, is revealed the power of unconditional love through a thousand layers of tumultuous emotions.
