Luka Chuppi scores on two fronts — as a light-hearted rom-com and a complete family entertainer. The best part about it is how despite the theme of live-in relationships, the film is accessible for the whole family.
Kartik Aaryan brings the house down again after SKTKS (he can now really carry a film on his own), and he’s well supported by Aparshakti Khurana and Kriti Sanon, while Pankaj Tripathi is totally in his elements, using all his expertise to breathe life into a largely half-baked character.
However, what makes Luka Chuppi more than the sum of its parts is how subtly writet Rohan Shankar and Director Laxman Utekar induce surprisingly pertinent statements underneath all the humor. The comedy in some parts could’ve been played out better, though in its entirety, the film largely works in keeping your funny bone tickled, with the second half picking up the fun by several notches.
The youth will love it, but it’d be nice if families go and watch Luka Chuppi to get a handle on evolving India while enjoying a good laugh.
