The Film Luka Chuppi starring Kriti Sanon and Kartik Aaryan, maybe will not blow your mind, but is a good watch movie if you are looking for something fun this weekend, says our review. The Film Starrs Kartik Aaryan as Guddu Shukla And Kriti Sanon as Rashmi Tiwari.
Luka Chuppi, by Laxman Utekar, explores the concept of live-in relationships in Mathura and Gwalior, a small town where they are heavily frowned upon. The film leaves much to be desired, though, despite having top-notch performances and hilarious moments, as it only scratches the surface.
Guddu Shukla is a star reporter on Mathura’s cable news channel. He falls in love with Rashmi Tiwari, an intern and the daughter of the Sanskriti Suraksha Manch chief in Mathura, a right-wing outfit that takes proud in beating up young lovers(Unmarried Couple) and ‘hold Indian culture’.(Anti-Romeo Squad)
When Guddu Shukla Proposes Rashmi Tiwari, she wants to know him better and properly for that she suggests him a live-in Relationship.
Guddu and Rashmi are in Gwalior for a 20-day assignment and decide to live there together. They pretend to be a newly married couple, with sindoor and mangalsutra traditionally worn by Rashmi Tiwari. This takes a hilarious turn in their life when their families discover that they live together and mistakenly assume that they are married.
Luka Chuppi shows none of a live-in relationship’s real challenges. Barring a fleeting conversation that Guddu is unable to chop onions and that Rashmi has an aversion to cleaning toilets, in their paradise everything is rosy.
Kartik Aaryan and Kriti Sanon have undeniably cute chemistry and perform competently, although they look a little too slick to be from a small town. However, it’s Aparshakti Khurana who steals the show with his deadpan humor as Guddu’s best friend Abbas. Unfortunately, despite making the most of it, Pankaj Tripathi is totally wasted in a trivial role.
Rashmi is inexplicably transformed from being a spunky woman who is willing to go against society to live with her lover, into someone who suddenly wants to rush to the altar because she can’t lie to her elders. Her dreams of a career in Delhi is rapidly forgotten.
Luka Chuppi, however, is filled with hilarious moments, especially the nosy neighbor sequence that spies on Guddu and Rashmi. Every unsuccessful attempt to get married also causes a lot of laughs.
