Shimla Mirchi is the Hindi language Indian romantic drama film in 2020 written by Vipul Binjola and Kausar Munir, directed by Ramesh Sippy. The story begins with Avinash (Rajkummar Rao), a former translator at the Japanese Embassy, visiting a temple with his family and found a perfect girl Naina (Rakul Preet Singh).
Avinash is a shy boy and decided to write a love letter to her. Naina’s father Tikal (Kanwaljit Singh) wanted a divorce from her mother Rukmini (Hema Malini), and the letter Avinash wrote was received by Rukmini, and a huge confusion began.
Hints of spice but mostly flat
Shimla Mirchi, with its over-the-top narrative clichés, would still be counted among the most avoidable films, even if it were to release in the 90s
