Love story 2050 new trailer

Love Story 2050 is a 2008 Indian science fiction-romance film starring producer Pammi Baweja and director Harry Baweja's son Harman Baweja and Priyanka Chopra. Some parts were filmed in Adelaide, Australia. Initially the film was supposed to release on 21 December 2007 but got postponed to 4 July 2008 due to extensive post-production work. The premiere was held on 2 July 2008 in London. The film draws a lot of similarity to the 1991 Telugu film Aditya 369; while the Telugu film dealt with travel to the past as well as distopian post-apocalyptic future, Love Story 2050 was exclusively about travelling to an utopian future-city of Mumbai in the year 2050. It is the first utopian time travel film of Bollywood. The movie was released on 4 July 2008 to negative reviews and was a commercial disaster. However, it was noted that the film helps 'understand the cultural anxieties about India’s neoliberal future captured in the cinematic imagination of the utopian city'.

    Initially, when Love Story 2050 was announced in 2004, Kareena Kapoor had signed on to play Priyanka's role, for which she was reportedly paid Rs.30 million. Kapoor later opted out in 2006 saying she had some date problems and was replaced by Chopra. Love Story is Bollywood's first futuristic film and had 1200 special effect shots The budget – Rs.600 million – was high for an Indian movie that time.

    Along with lead actors, Harman and Priyanka, a robot was seen playing a major role; viewers also get to see a teddy bear which appears to be more than a toy.

    Lead actress Priyanka Chopra played a double role so she coloured her hair twice: once red to portray the girl from future and then again black. The red-haired look is inspired from Harman Baweja's sister Rowena Baweja's painting which portrays woman of today and tomorrow. The script of Love Story 2050 inspired her to do the painting.

    The first trailer of the film was shown on 21 March 2008 at the premiere of Race.


    The film released on 4 July 2008 with 540 plus prints (including 200 digital screens) and approximately 200 prints overseas.


    This flim received negative reviews from critics. Taran Adarsh of Indiatimes called Harman the new flavour of the season and someone who will have a long stay in Bollywood.

    Raja Sen of called the movie "absolutely ridiculous" with "nothing to offer". In reference to Harman Baweja, Sen said "He cannot act. He does not look good. He does not have screen presence".

    Box office

    The film failed to generate a big initial response and the bookings for the sci-fi release were tepid at best, garnering only about 25%–30% advance bookings.

    Love Story 2050 opened to a 25% response and, by noon shows, was in the 35%–40% range. In multiplexes, it opened to a 50%–60% response on Friday. The film was released on 725 cinemas including 350 digital cinemas.

    The film crashed all around in week two, thus an average in India and overseas. Most call it a trade disaster because it could not retrieve the cost of its budget, making Adlabs lose over 60 crore (US$9.4 million).

    DVD and CD, telecast on television

    Harry Baweja has plans to release the movie on DVD and has sold the DVD rights for a huge price. The DVD pack will include videos on the making of Love Story 2050 and its special effects.

    PC game

    Rocking Pixels in co-ordination with undisclosed USA-based firms is developing a game based on the film. The game was to be released sometime in June at an expected price point of around Rs200; after the movie's failure, the release date of the game has been extended. This concept follows other Bollywood-based video games such as Dhoom 2 and Ghajini..
