What will you do if your parents are not in favor of a love marriage? Vikrant Massey and Kriti Kharbanda’s movie 14 Phere provides an answer to this question, but with enough twists and turns to make you dizzy.
The makers of 14 Phere shared the trailer for the film on Monday. It introduces Sanjay (Vikrant Massey) and Aditi (Kriti Kharbanda). The two meet during their studies, fall in love and move in together. They are now ready to tie the knot, but Aditi’s father is against love marriages, while Sanjay’s father is unwilling to agree to a cross-caste union. Sanjay and Aditi come up with a unique, albeit non-conservative, way of dealing with the situation. Instead of one, they decide to have two weddings with fake parents who are responsible for the real thing. Enter ‘Delhi ki Meryl Streep’ Gauahar Khan.

14 Phere has Vikrant in a light-hearted avatar. The actor, who has just started the success of crime thriller Haseen Dillruba, is at ease and a joy to watch. “I immediately fell in love with the script and can’t wait for everyone to see it,” said Vikrant.
Kriti stars as Aditi. In fact, to some degree, you believe she’s playing herself. “Halfway through reading the script, I felt a range of emotions. I was so invested in Aditi and Sanjay and couldn’t wait to know what could happen next. The intrigue I felt reassured me that it was a kickass script and would make for a super entertaining movie! It’s not just another wedding film, that’s for sure and I can’t wait for the audience to witness the magic that is 14 Phere,” Kriti Kharbanda said.
“This is a close, fun family film in which you will see that bonding and emotional values are very important. The film celebrates the institution of family and marriage, but reasonably questions some fundamental flaws. We try not to joke about traditions and customs; in fact you can watch this movie with your whole family, and i am sure you will have a good time. The trailer is just the beginning,” director Devanshu Singh said in a statement.
14 Phere will premiere on ZEE5 from 23 July.
