The 90s, a time when a new India sprung forth and along with it, a new kind of Indian youth. One who dared to dream and was driven by aspirations. Twenty Somethings—For Love or Ambition traces the journeys of Hrishikesh Krishnamurthy (Rishi) and Nitya Ramanna through their twenties. The dilemmas they face and the impact their choices have on their life trajectory.
It is 1992, Rishi who has just entered the first year of engineering is besotted by Nitya, a final year student. Nitya is single-minded and is more about the destination, while Rishi, is one who places greater importance on the journey. What starts as a friendship has unmistakable chemistry with sparks just about to fly and they do! Torn between a possible relationship and a potential career, Nitya chooses the latter and leaves for the US. Wheels of time turn and a chance meeting brings Rishi and Nitya face to face. Their circumstances have changed. What stands between a much-desired union and hanging on a balance is the future of Rishi’s career and Nitya’s marriage.
Set at the turn of the century, the story traverses a decade of loving, leaving, and longing in their lives and the choices these twenty-somethings make for love or ambition!
