A story about loev, no matter how you spell it. Loev—official selection last year at some of the world’s leading film festivals, including SXSW and Talinn Black Nights—is a tender and intimate portrait of three men who struggle to define the boundaries of their friendship and the loev that exists between them. When hotshot Wall Street dealmaker Jai (Shiv Pandit) thinks of putting some pleasure into his 48 hour business trip to Mumbai, Sahil (Dhruv Ganesh), his young, music-producer friend, drops everything, including his reckless boyfriend Alex (Siddharth Menon), to help him execute the perfect getaway.

Hiking the hills and canyons of Maharashtra, amidst half-attempted conversations and sudden silences, business calls and old jokes, the friends discover there is more than just time-zones keeping them apart. Things take another turn when Alex shows up with a new male-companion at his side, throwing up old conflicts and bringing unanswered questions to the fore.

Loev is about this weekend between friends where chances are missed, truths evaded and among all the stumbles, the love that unexpectedly prevails.
