Being from a middle class family, Bonny has to strive hard to actually buy the bike for his lady love. However he falls into trouble due to the local goons. What happens to their love story is what Borbaad is all about. The intensity and passion that people usually have for their first love has been shown in the film. People will be able to relate easily to this new couple’s plight. There is an element of reality and practicality in the film too. This is also different from the love story which I made in 2008.
