“Luka Chuppi” is the story of Guddu a television reporter in Mathura, who falls in love with a Rashmi. Guddu proposes marriage and Rashmi suggests Live In. What happens when they decide to live in, but the whole family joins in too?
What’s Good ?
Cinematography : The scene of Mathura and Gwalior are well set and you would get a feel of small town story.
Music and Songs: The background scores supports all the dialogues and situations well, songs though all remixed are a treat to listen specially on big screen.
Performances:All the characters have performed beautifully and the focus is never on one star in particular, be it Kartik Aaryan, Kriti Sanon, Pankaj Tripathi, Vinay Pathak, Apaarshakti Khurrana, or more.. All characters are beautifully portrayed and have got great screen time.
Comedy: The comic timing is spot on and it is light-hearted experience overall, there are dialogues at places that will make you smile while there are situations at other places that will tickle your funny bone.
Plot: The plot is evident from the trailer itself, so no rocket science in predicting the end of the movie. It would have been great if the movie could have been slightly different or little creative from what was shown in trailer.
Screenplay and Editing: Although the movie is only 2 hours long, we expected more from the stitching and editing overall. There are many scenes which are unnecessary and at times many dialogues are uncalled for.
Supporting the Theme (LIVE IN and Progressive society) :The movie is based on LIVE IN relationships and how the conventional families react to that, but overall we felt that the director in one way or the other could not take a bold step forward in terms of storytelling. At one point you are supporting a progressive thought of Live in to know each other better and on the other hand there is stress that saat phere are important for a hindu marriage to become legitimate. Also, did not like the fact shown that a politician could go to any level to grab votes.
Overall, it is light hearted and fun to watch but only once. Performances were exceptional but the storytelling could have been better.
Special mention to Kaartik Aryan and Pankaj Tripathi for bring unstoppable and amazing.
