As same as the trailer, everyone was waiting for Luka Chuppi with bated breath. And, as expected, this situational comedy has been churning good numbers at the box office. No wonder the romantic comedy performed well defeating stiff competition from films like 'Total Dhamaal' and 'Sonchiriya' this week.
This movie is one great example of situational comedy turned love story which revolves around small-town reporter Guddu (Kartik Aryan) and Rashmi (Kriti Sanon) who try living in together before they get married. The entire flick explores the problems that live-in relationships entail, gender bias, including misogyny, and caste issues in a light-hearted as well as fun way.
While it comes to cast, Aryan is a very charming small town boy though looks a little too polished for the part. And, Kriti pulls off the girl-next-door role who is simply stylish and easy-going.
Film Director Laxman Utekar manages to weave in a funny and sweet story with an appealing narrative.
You will observe how the first half is full of witty lines, twists, and turns and some good writing. And, the second half holds the same fun, making you root for the characters. Although humor does become repetitive at some point, overall the film is a smooth two hours and six minutes long with almost no dull moments. Plus it will surely put a smile on your face.
