Directed by Shashanka Ghoshwho previously directed romantic comedies like Khoobsurat Y Veere Di Wedding, Plan A Plan B seems to be targeting not only the significant audience for rom-coms on Netflix, but also the demographic that gets drunk on unscripted titles like indian matchmaker Y Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives.

There’s an unadventurous simplicity to the trailer, presenting a movie that seems to stick to the rulebook. Deshmukh, who has experienced his share of success as a comedic actor, plays Kosty, the “caustic” lawyer, who doesn’t believe in love. “Marriage is a punishment,” he declares at one point, then brags about having matched several women on Tinder. Bhatia’s Nirali, on the other hand, is more old-fashioned. She’s the kind of person who daydreams about her happily ever after. When they first meet, Kosty and Nirali clash, but soon, even to the people around them, it becomes clear that something is brewing between the two.
