Life and Love are integral parts of every person’s life. Lifeless with love is loveless with life.
At every point, love connotes a different meaning. The love for food, love for fashion, love of family, etc, and the list is times in infinity. With changing scenarios love transcends into a different way of expressing it and Modern Love is the intermediator who helps in proliferating these newfound meanings of love.
Self-love is something that we must have heard of but when it comes to applying it we lack one. Loving yourself can make a lot of difference; if you start embracing what you are you’ll see a new you then no matter how good or bad people think you are you will be your favorite.
Modern love with multiple directions
Modern love directed by six different directors revolutionized the meaning of love and presented six different stories depicting love that is ageless, selfless, genderless, and boundless. The series has depicted comedy of errors and molded the tragedies into a comic satire.
The hamartia in Greek plays is placed extraordinarily well and brought a Bildungsroman in characters, finding identity and living life to the fullest. Modern Love not only embraces the idea of love from six different perspectives but also reads between the words that bring out infatuation, love, and life in a profound way.
