Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela
Ram, the local village Romeo, is charming yet vagabond whereas Leela is an unbridled and passionate village Juliet. The only thing in common between these two strangers is their families’ hatred for each other. The two communities have been sworn enemies since the past 500 years. When Ram and Leela see each other for the first time, their worlds collide, wars are fought and destinies are written. Set in a land of guns, vengeance against a magnificent musical backdrop, Ram and Leela fight the world to live their own dreams. What will happen when they declare their love to the world? Will their families relent or will Ram and Leela carve their own destiny?
