Critic Review
Luka Chuppi (2019) LUKA CHUPPI is the story of a couple living-in with their family. Superstar Nazim Khan (Abhinav Shukla) gets into a controversy when it comes to light that he is living-in with his girlfriend and is unapologetic about it. The moral police come out in full force to protest against his 'indecent' act. One such organisation is Rashtriya Sanskriti Manch and in Mathura, it is led by Vishnu Trivedi (Vinay Pathak). His daughter is Rashmi (Kriti Sanon) and she joins a local news channel after completing her media studies in Delhi. Here she bumps into Guddu (Kartik Aaryan) and both fall in love. After a fight with his elder unmarried brother Vikas (Himanshu Kohli) and brother in law Babulal (Pankaj Tripathi), he decides to tie the knot ASAP. He proposes to Rashmi. She however refuses to marry him so soon and insists on a live-in relationship. Guddu obviously freaks out. However inspired by an idea given by their colleague Abbas (Aparshakti Khurana), they decide to live in when they go on a 20-day assignment at Gwalior, where no one knows them. Hence they could live in without any fear. But in order to get the flat on rent, they pretend to be a married couple. Rashmi also has to go out wearing mangalsutra and apply sindoor. All is going well when Babulal catches them getting cosy in a public place. Assuming they are married, he tells his family about it and they all land up at their pad in Gwalior. What happens next forms the rest of the film..

On the whole, LUKA CHUPPI is a funny take on the modern relationships laced with dollops of situational and funny moments. This clean comedy would get thumbs up not just from the youngsters but also from the family audiences. Recommended!.

All said and done, Luka Chuppi packs in few laughs but there is no major reason why I should recommend this to anyone. If you’re game for, “You’re so cute!”, “Haan, bachpan mein bohot makhhan khaya tha na” kind of dialogues, you can give it a .

Between not taking itself seriously and spewing gyaan over how to win youth votes, Luka Chuppi cannot decide what it wants to hide and where it needs to look..

The last word is reserved for Guddu and Rashmi, who unwrap Trivedi’s political opportunism and declare that the youth of India is a vote bank not to be gagged by an outdated moral code. Now if only they had taken this stand 60 minutes sooner..

Watch it for Kartik Aaryan and Kriti Sanon's refreshing chemistry and Pankaj Tripathi's antics in a one-time experience (if you have absolutely nothing else to do)..

The film has a positive message but it takes its own sweet time coming. However, I will take what we are getting in today’s political climate. Aparshakti’s Abbas, who has had enough of everyday religious bias, tells a man, “Alien nahi hu, Muslim hu..

Laxman Utekar, who has made Marathi films like Tapaal (2014) and Lalbaugchi Rani (2016) before, makes a confident debut in Hindi cinema. The film has been shot well in Mathura and Gwalior, which is incidentally Kartik's hometown. Watch Luka Chuppi for a d.

Look past the weak script and Luka Chuppi is a total laughter riot. The performances are strong, the humour for one is refreshingly different from Kartik Aaryan’s past movies. It is more situational than slapstick, though, don’t despair yet, there is .
