The story of ‘Love Victim’ certainly is a new-age melodramatic tale of two individuals fighting for their true love. But what makes this story heart-wrenching is how somewhere in the middle of young, passionate and intense feelings between two lovers comes the realities of the bitter we live in our societies today. Love, then comes to be understood as a platonic feeling shared by individuals living apart, and not just merely feelings of loving together in physical intimacy.
Amidst the romantic, sensual and passionate emotions of two lovers, this story showcases some bitter truths of the world we live in, demonstrating the power of one man’s ego over the other and the unfortunate fatality of innocent lives involved. Though this story bears no resemblance to any person living or dead, the fate of their love compels one to consider and repudiate the atrocities of the present day societal pressures. Bearing no gender bias to the destiny of love, this story swells the mind to question the agony, dread and suffering of two individuals simply seeking to live a life together.
‘Love Victim’ is a heart-wrenching debut channeling a melodramatic journey of two lovers. Nishkarsh and Barkha in their late 20’s fall in sweet love and share their romantic moments in a journey full of twists and turns. This typical 21st century love meanders through a series of unexpected ghastly moments because little did they realize that life had planned it quite the opposite of their passionate love.
