The name of the movie Gurtunda Seethakalam, Seethakalam means winter which represents hopelessness and preparation for new things. This movie speaks about the stages of love in a man’s life called Dev where he is confused about what is love when he realises he had infatuation but now he found his love Nidhi how their relationship works and speaks about a friend who is with Dev from the beginning as a support system. The combination of true love and friendship blends lots of emotions with a realistic plot which makes it a unique love story. The film keeps the essence of the Kannada film Love mocktail with no changes in the storyline.
The acting of the lead couple is awesome, the music is one of the highlights of the film.
My rating for the film would be 4 out of 5.
