Love Birds, according to the filmmaker is a film that explores the transitions that occur in the lives of a guy and a girl after they’ve entered into wedlock. In the process of setting up home, either with an extended family or as a nuclear unit, there are ups and downs the couple will face, and Love Birds is an exploration about these facets of a marital relationship, he had said during a press interaction for a song launch.
A little while ago, the team released the trailer without much fanfare.
