About ‘Cross Connection’ movie:
Have you ever had the bitter-sweet experience of having got pulled to an unknown entity by sheer lack of luck and been led into a completely new world where every second you faced unsolicited gentlemen and ladies, young, cute and beautiful lasses and very outgoing and timidly bold young dudes who go the extra mile in quest of their love.
And behold, you are in the realm of hilarity and good times that are sand witched between uncertainty and ambiguity of the gravest kind. Misunderstandings and misconceptions rule the roost and at breakneck pace, characters go hurtling down the ethereal skies of wanton cosmos. A strict brigadier’s romantically inclined son, meekly submits to the erratically whimsical daughter of an IAS officer’s whims and fancies. Ironically, a confused son of a political big wig from Punjab is a hot contender for the hand of a police commissioner’s gorgeous, sexy and beautiful daughter. Why and how their paths cross??? Cool down dudes, no cause for alarm !!
The process, happenings and the results are all very topsy-turvy yet smooth as silk, very comforting and tantalising. The entire thing tickles our funny bone. Cross Connection causes mistakes to be made by the young protagonists only to be reigned in by the elders in a covertly and overtly strict, yet amiable manner. The film brings in whiffs of fresh air into the family bonds in a very subtle and entertaining vein. The Smile, at times, turns into guffaws every now and then but it sits perennially on your lips. It has to be a U certificate film for family viewing that sets a fresher benchmark for humour in Punjabi Cinema.
