  1. Of Course, I Love You

Of Course, I Love You is a film set in Delhi in the years 2006–2008, and it is about nightclubs, colleges, romances, and friendships. Debashish “Deb” Roy is a college student who has dated and slept with a large number of women. He is content until he has a relationship with Avantika, a girl. Deb’s situation deteriorates as his bond with Avantika grows stronger. Avantika is obliged to follow the advice of her spiritual “Guru” and abandon Deb. Deb is dismissed from his college placements and is hired in a federal agency where his father formerly worked. He meets Amit, the office genius who has little experience with women, and waits for his life to improve and Avantika to return to him.


  1. The boy who loved

The only thing in life you can’t plan is when and with whom you’ll fall in love… Raghu likes to pretend that his life is unremarkable: he has loving middle-class parents, an older brother whom he idolizes, and plans to study at an IIT. And that’s exactly how he wants things to appear – ordinary.

However, the guilt of letting his best friend die in the school pool gnaws at him deep inside. Even though he punishes himself by withdrawing from society and avoiding love and companionship, he is pulled to the captivating Brahmi – a girl who is similar to him but quite different. Warm and dark, edgy and eccentric, delightfully realistic and dangerously unreal, The Boy Who Loved is the first of a two-part romance.


  1. If it’s not forever, it’s not love

 What would be your final words if you died tomorrow? When a tremendous blast rips through the heart of Delhi – Chandni Chowk – it’s simply another afternoon in Deb’s life. He hasn’t been physically wounded, but he has been emotionally damaged. He seeks redemption after being haunted by the blast for several days. He comes into a half-burned diary written by someone who perished on that awful day while strolling near the blast site.

Deb is entrusted with a weird responsibility by the burned diary: the last words of a dead man. Shrey, his best friend since college, and Avantika, his girlfriend, unwittingly accompany him on his road journey as he tries to piece together the intriguing story of the murdered man.
