2 States is a 2014 romantic comedy-drama film based on the novel of the same name by Chetan Bhagat. The movie is directed by Abhishek Varman and produced by Karan Johar and Sajid Nadiadwala. The film stars Arjun Kapoor and Alia Bhatt in the lead roles, with Amrita Singh, Ronit Roy, Revathi, and Shiv Kumar Subramaniam in supporting roles.

The story of 2 States follows Krish Malhotra (Arjun Kapoor), a North Indian boy from Delhi, and Ananya Swaminathan (Alia Bhatt), a Tamilian girl from Chennai. The two meet during their MBA program at an IIM-Ahmedabad college, where they fall in love. However, their love story gets complicated as the cultural differences between their families become a challenge for them to overcome. Krish's mother (Amrita Singh) is a no-nonsense Punjabi woman who is obsessed with finding the perfect bride for her son and will not accept a girl from outside their community. Similarly, Ananya's parents (Revathi and Shiv Kumar Subramaniam) are proud Tamilians who are uncomfortable with the idea of their daughter marrying a Punjabi guy.

Krish and Ananya are determined to convince their families to accept their relationship and eventually decide to get married. However, their journey towards their happily-ever-after is anything but easy. Both families try to sabotage the relationship by creating misunderstandings, and things get ugly when a family tragedy occurs. Krish and Ananya are forced to choose between their love and their families, and the lovers experience heartbreak as their families refuse to accept their relationship.

The movie is a beautiful blend of romance, drama, and comedy. The chemistry between Arjun and Alia is lovely, and they deliver their roles with absolute perfection. The supporting cast is also fantastic, with Amrita Singh stealing the show with her performance as Krish's mother. The film is a visual treat, with colorful sets and breathtaking locations, beautifully captured by the cinematographer Binod Pradhan.

Apart from the stellar performances and stunning visuals, the film's music is another highlight. The movie's soundtrack is composed by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy and features songs like "Locha E Ulfat," "Offo," and "Mast Magan," which became instant chartbusters. The songs are a perfect mix of peppy and romantic tracks that capture the essence of the film's story beautifully.

Overall, 2 States is an excellent movie that deals with the complexities of inter-caste marriages in India. The movie delivers a powerful message about the importance of love and acceptance in today's world. It is a heartwarming story that will make you laugh, cry and leave you with a smile on your face. 2 States is a must-watch for all movie lovers who enjoy a good romantic comedy-drama.
