LOVE YOU TO DEATH is a wild, whacky comic thriller in ‘Hinglish’ that has a laugh at the crazy times we live in. Triggered partially by newspaper stories of greed, it includes a bunch of bumbling murder attempts. There’s a doctor who is a ‘sexpert’ by day, a rockstar by night and a theatre director who also organises ‘supari’ deaths.
A spectacular dog funeral with dogs of all castes and ‘breeds’ in attendance! There’s Sonia who’s rich, who loves her dog. Her dog has human problems including anorexia and insomnia. Both receive therapy in the form of crystals and herbal teas from an attractive, manipulative therapist.
The therapist is having an affair with Sonia’s father-in-law. Sonia’s husband Atul and his mom are driven by greed and ambition. A Russian Israeli arms dealer (whose son is a ‘peacenik’) has a business proposal. Atul wants to set up an arms factory with him even as he personally suffers from ‘missile failure’.
A hilarious scene with the ‘sexpert’ ensues. Sonia meets a born-again Indian, an ‘eco-warrior’ whose dream is to build low cost solar panels for every village in the country.
Atul and his mother plot two murder attempts. The film culminates in an art gallery with loads of blank guns, a single loaded pistol and some unexpected results!
