This maroon sweater is knitted in local train of Mumbai and the story grows there. This sweater becomes the symbol of an unexceptional couple’s journey, struggling to keep their love alive, and survive life in the chaos of a clockwork modern world.  “Mehrooni, shows the love of a common man.

The movie is not a Romeo & Juliet story. This story portrays simple love in this busy world. This movies shows that real love actually exists still now but we don’t see it.
