Old World Romance In The Digital Age

As Yogi (Irrfan Khan) and Jaya (Parvathy) navigate the world of online dating, we see a charming cohesion of all things millennial and non-millennial. But one of the delights of Qarib Qarib Singlle is romance that’s real and yet exudes a retro vibe. Here’s a rundown of what old-world romance looks like in the digital age.

Moving on Is a Monumental Task

Like Yogi (Irrfan Khan) observes in the film, we tend to memorliase our past loves in our passwords. It’s a comment on a generation that finds it difficult to break out of the prison of its past. History is its bane. It takes herculean effort to take a step forward and dissemble the pangs of a bereaved heart. Casual relationships are tough to establish.

Yogi, a self-professed poet weaves truth bombs and the most trivial as well as the most compelling conversations in poetry. Insert best mental turn-on.

Saying ‘I Love You’ is not necessary

Yogi and Jaya bicker, get exasperated by each other, travel together and feel deeply for each other but are too bruised to express themselves. They don’t really need words to seal the deal.

Sex Appeal Lies in the Gazes

Yogi and Jaya might not have stayed in the same room or you might not have seen them canoodling but the intense sexual chemistry in their gazes is hard to miss! Jaya simply resting her head on Irrfan’s shoulder has lyrically erotic undertones.
