In an honest effort, director Praveen Sattaru presents a love story, true to its title. It depicts that all love stories go through the same phase before eventually reaching the conclusion. Known for his offbeat presentation, Sattaru scores with his latest offering exclusively because he manages to weave a story, which is very real and honest.
Like every love story, 'Routine Love Story' captures the romance of Sanju and Tanvi, played by Sundeep and Regina respectively. Sanju develops immense liking for Tanvi at first sight, and after much thought, shares his feelings with Tanvi, hoping for a positive response immediately. However, Tanvi requests for time. Meanwhile, instead of growing close, they detach from each other despite extreme love for each other. Will they understand each other and come to terms with love or not, forms the rest of the story.
Sattaru deliberately chose a subject known and appreciated by all instead of experimenting with a subject the audience may be alien to. Without making anything too obvious, he works closely on a script that appears cliched, but isn't when it finally unfolds on screen. The director's audiences haven't changed since his last film 'LBW' (Life before Marriage). He targets people between the age group 18 and 30 precisely, to be acknowledged for narrating a story that is similar to their lives.
The film doesn't offer anything new, but manages to leave an impact because of the simplicity in the plot. The director mirrors modern-day love story in
