In movies, picking a specific time period as a theme makes the story richer.A captivating example that grabs viewers’ attention is the director Amit Kasaria’s choice to bring back the nostalgic feel of the 90’s in his upcoming movie, Love Story of 90’s.

Amit mentions, “For a movie to be good, you need a strong support system with good producers like Haresh Sangani, Dharmesh Sangani and team.It’s a love story with the right touch of romance which is supported by the right people that makes LSO90’s (Love Story of 90’s) an amazing project”.
As we step into a movie that captures the essence of a particular time period, it raises the question: What motivated the director to tell the story using elements from that specific decade?
Join us on a journey as we explore why they chose the 90’s theme and how it becomes a vital part of the story, going beyond just appearances.
Amit Kasaria shares, ” The idea of LSO90’s (Love Story of 90’s) dawned on me, as I am a child of 90’s era. I came of age watching films like Maine Pyar Kiya, Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak and Hum Aapke Hain Kaun. I am someone who really adores love stories. I was constantly ambitious to create a romantic film”.
In his quest for the genre, he stumbled upon an interview featuring
Shah Rukh Khan. King of Bollywood, expressed that after the huge success of Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge many young women were looking for Raj and Simran likewise in other films.
So, the director wanted to create a captivating love story and he decided to make two characters who have a cinematic style and grew up watching 90s movies.
Amit quotes, “I aimed to plan the meeting of the characters at a single location.The end of their journey is expected to be interesting and enjoyable.They both will hold faith in the power of romance. Sometimes, things don’t happen as they want, and real-life love may not be like the perfect picture they imagine.”
LSO90’S (Love Story of 90’s ) is not a movie only about individuals born in 90’s but also about teenagers going through their high school years in 2012 to make it more current.
Kasaria cited, “I am also celebrating 90’s romance with this duo.The characters believe in the pure and innocent love.Hence, I wanted to incorporate this in my movie.”

Divita Rai, was chosen for the lead actress as she was on board with a very renowned talent agency.The director and the producer encountered numerous lovely girls, yet none quite matched the character.So, when they met Divita they felt that she embodies joy and is a firm believer in the essence of life.She possesses both beauty and intellect, expressing herself very well. She is very fluent in Hindi, despite of being a South Indian.So, this way the director and the producers were in sync with each other’s vision.
The major portion of the movie is shot in Uttarakhand. Several scenes and songs were filmed in the picturesque backdrop of Manali.A minor segment is yet to be filmed in Mumbai.
The movie will have a theatrical release, but will certainly be released on a renowned OTT platform too later on.
