After Sonu Ke Titu ki Sweety, Kartik Aaryan is in talks like never before. The talented actor is back with another much anticipated romantic comedy ‘Luka Chuppi’ and let us tell you, Kartik Aaryan once again proved that he is here to stay for long and rule our hearts with a charming personality and unmatchable acting skills. Just released film focuses on the live-in relationship concept which is gaining popularity among youths.
Luka Chuppi’s plot revolves around the romance of Mathura’s popular Reporter- Guddu played with flair by Kartik Aaryan and Media Intern Rashmi aka Kriti Sanon. In the midst of their work schedules, the duo starts spending time together and love happens. In stereotyped love stories, marriage is the next step but Rashmi opts for Live-in relationship and convinces Guddu to give it a try for better understanding among each other. Well, it’s not as simple as it sounds when you are in a small town where your neighbours and relatives have an activated CCTV camera focused on you!
The drama begins with Guddu and Rashmi totally stuck in a situation. Their family believes the couple is married but in reality, they aren’t. With all this family drama happening, Aparshakti Khurana as Guddu’s cameraman and friend elevates the mirth level in possibly every scene. Not to forget the real gem of Luka Chuppi, Pankaj Tripathi. He treats the audience with his incredible presence in the film. With his role as Guddu’s elder brother’s brother in law, the stereotype ‘Dur k Rishtedar’ character is brilliantly crafted.
Kriti Sanon and Kartik Aaryan have amazing on-screen chemistry. They both have delivered top-notch performances and completely justified their respective characters. In some areas, the script loses its grip where they look more like a couple from a metro city rather than from a small town but we understand the term cinematographic liberty and hence a bit of cheesiness is manageable.
Overall, Luka Chuppi entertains with a live-in relationship drama. Somewhere the makers of the film lost a golden opportunity to present the mainstream topic in a progressive way. Similarly, Director Laxman Utekar could have beaten up the idealistic and socially accepted relationship patterns. Sadly, the film ends up with same needs to label the relationship with the marriage tag. Kartik and Kriti’s spontaneous screenplay keep you glued to screen. With twists popping from everywhere, Luka Chuppi is sure to enter the 100cr club at the box office.
We recommend you to watch Luka Chuppi for some fresh light heart comedy this weekend!
