Rather than focus on whether they will end up together – they will certainly hold hands together – such books are about the cute exchanges of anger and affection between the two characters. Keerthy Suresh and Nitin Suresh had all the characteristics of young lovers. This is the kind of cute, cool film to watch when it’s hot outside.It will be released on 12th June on Zee5.
