It is a Telugu-speaking community in Kolkata where a football player named Surya (Sharwanand) falls for a medical student named Vaishali (Sai Pallavi). The love story is not as simple as it appears to be. Surya starts trying to make Vaishali fall for him. After Vaishali falls in love with Surya and starts talking about marriage, Surya breaks up with her due to his fear of commitment as a result of his parents’ failed marriage. Vaishali tells him that exactly after a year, they will meet in Kathmandu, Nepal and decided whether they should get married or not. Exactly after a year, the Nepal 2015 earthquake occurs, where Surya is searching for Vaishali. Simultaneously, Vaishali is searching for Surya in Kathmandu. Immediately after Surya spots Vaishali, she is injured and is diagnosed with retrograde amnesia (which nobody knows about) and still acts as if she is fine, with her friends and family except Surya. So Surya tries to make her fall in love again. The rest of the story is how Surya realizes that Vaishali is actually diagnosed with retrograde amnesia and how he realizes that Vaishali is perfect for him.



The film schedule was to start by the end of March, but since actress Sai Pallavi had dates only in February, the film start scheduled was preponed to February.[5] The first leg has been shot in Kolkata from 5 February 2018. The second leg of the film was shot extensively in Kathmandu. The film was expected to release in the monsoon season.[6][7] Some sequences of first leg were shot in interiors of West Bengal.[8] Medical college scenes were shot in Mahindra École Centrale, Hyderabad. The film was expected to be a romantic comedy family entertainer. Sai Pallavi is playing a medical student in the film.[9] Sharwanand lost 10 kilograms and sported a stylish hairstyle for the film.[10] Priya Raman, who played Sharwanand's mother, made her comeback role in acting after 19 years.


The film released on 21 December 2018. The film was also dubbed and released in Hindi as Dil Dhadak Dhadak on YouTube on 26 February 2021 by Goldmines Telefilms.[11]


The soundtrack is composed by Vishal Chandrasekhar after his second collaboration with director Hanu Raghavapudi after Krishna Gaadi Veera Prema Gaadha.
