Here’s the official synopsis for What’s Love Got To Do With It?:

How do you find lasting love in today’s world? For documentary-maker and dating app addict Zoe (James), swiping right has only delivered an endless stream of Mr. Wrongs, to her eccentric mother Cath’s (Thompson) dismay. For Zoe’s childhood friend and neighbor Kaz (Latif), the answer is to follow his parents’ example and opt for an arranged (or “assisted”) marriage to a bright and beautiful bride from Pakistan. As Zoe films his hopeful journey from London to Lahore to marry a stranger, chosen by his parents, she begins to wonder if she might have something to learn from a profoundly different approach to finding love.

What’s Love Got to Do with It? first premiered at the 2022 Toronto International Film Festival. It later won Best Comedy at the Rome Film Festival. 

The movie also boasts an impressive musical creative team. Ivor Novello Lifetime Achievement Award-winning and Mercury Prize nominated composer, Nitin Sawhney CBE, created the music for the film with British-Pakistani record producer, DJ, songwriter, and musician Naughty Boy, who brought his production and writing skills to the soundtrack alongside three-time BRIT Award and Mercury Prize nominee Joy Crookes. The film also features an original song by Naughty Boy called “Mahi Sona (The Wedding Song)” with a special vocal performance from star Lily James. Kanika Kapoor and Rahat Fateh Ali Khan are also featured on the soundtrack, with Rahat appearing in the film itself. 

What’s Love Got to Do with It? opens in theaters May 5. Until then, check back to THS for more updates.
