Giving a brief about the movie, the makers have shared a note which reads, “Set against the pulsating backdrop of rustic North India, Love Hostel traces the volatile journey of a spirited young couple, being hunted by a ruthless mercenary. The star-crossed lovers take on the entire world and then some more in search of their fairytale ending. This is a survival tale in the game of power, money and principles, with mayhem and bloodshed.”

Love Hostel will be Shanker Raman’s second directorial. His debut film was the 2017 release Gurgaon which starred Ragini Khanna, Akshay Oberoi, and Pankaj Tripathi in the lead roles. Interestingly, Gurgaon had clashed with SRK’s Jab Harry Met Sejal.
