Luka Chuppi – a fun ride with a high dose of entertainment!
Bollywood sensations, Kartik Aryan and Kriti Sanon starrer ‘Luka Chuppi’ is a romantic comedy
directed by Laxman Utekar. Produced by Dinesh Vijan under the banner of Maddock Films, the
film released on 1st March. With a duration of 126 minutes, it will take you on a fun ride.
The movie is setup in the small town of Mathura where Indian values and culture prevail over
and dominate the modern outlook of younger generation. Guddu Shukla (Kartik Aryan), a
reporter of the local news channel falls in love with Rashmi (Kriti Sanon), the daughter of a
prominent political leader. Before taking the important step of getting their knots tied, they
decide to check their compatibility by living-in-together for a few days, away from Mathura.
Everything was seemingly well until their family members get involved in it resulting in great
confusion and hilarious drama.
Setting it’s focus on live-in relationship, director Laxman Utekar has woven its story in reality.
Spying neighbors, dramatic family and Indian culture come in the path of young generation’s
modern values. But at a point, the focus of the film shifts to marriage from live-in relationship.
Director tries to build the momentum but fails to retain it. Despite its lows, ‘Luka Chuppi’ won’t
let you feel bored and will tickle your funny bones till the end.
Neither the acting nor it’s screenplay, but the high voltage drama is the backbone of ‘Luka
Chuppi’. The cherry on the cake is Kartik Aryan. His ‘oh-so-hot’ looks won’t fail to make the girls
go weak in their knees. Kartik’s Guddu is a blend of sanskari and cool guy, sometimes confused
and sometimes confident, much like Kartik’s Sonu. Kriti Sanon looked pretty but there is no boast of it!
Kartik and Kriti’s chemistry looked sweet and sizzling but somewhere got
overshadowed by high family drama. The sub-casts specially Aparshakti Khurana and Pankaj
Tripathi were good supporters and retained the comedy till the end.
The foot-taping songs will make you groove with its beats. Background score of Ketan Sodha was nothing new. Milind Jog’s cinematography is praise worthy.
Despite its flaws, ‘Luka Chuppi’ scores high on entertainment. It will make you laugh till your
stomach aches. The film is engaging. A sweet couple, some cute moments, a budding issue of
live-in relationship, dramatic family, some chaos and confusion and hilarious drama makes ‘Luka
Chuppi’ a perfect stress buster.
