*ing: Kartik Aryan, Kriti Sanon, Aparshakti Khurana, Vinay Pathak, Pankaj Tripathi
In the last three or four decades there are only half a dozen movies that have been able to keep up the laughter quotient till the very end. A few such films that jog the memory are Chupke Chupke, Golmaal (original with Amol Palekar) and Angoor. Luka Chuppi is one such film that can be added to the list of movies that keeps you engaged from the word go.
Not just engaged, it ensures that the audience laughs out loud all through. There are some moments where one might even been in danger of laughing too much — so much so that it may hurt the stomach and yet the one won’t be able to control one’s guffaws.
This despite the subject that the films deals with — the concept of live-in. While in 2019, the issue may not raise as many brows as it did a couple of decades back in the metros, the backdrop of the movie — Mathura and Gwalior — the concept raises eyebrows and is frowned upon.
There are several pluses here. It is a comic take on live-in relationship. Second, the dialogues have no innuendos, in other words no double meaning words or sentences. This means that one can sit and watch it with the family without cringing every few minutes. Third, the humour is not slapstick, it is situational. Finally, the most important point, director Dinesh Vijan who after producing films like Go Goa Gone and Stree and turned director with Raabta keeps the comic element till the very end. No gyan being given except that our netas need to be in tune with the 70 crore youth who want progress and jobs and not for politicians with an archaic mindset
Kudos to Kartik Aryan (Guddu) and Kriti Sanon (Rashmi) for playing their characters to perfection even though it is tough for them to look like they are from a small town middle class family. A special mention here for Aparshakti Khurrana, who plays Abbas and Guddu’s friend and Pankaj Tripathi who plays Babulal. Vinay Pathak as Trivedi who adds to the fun.
Over all Luka Chuppi makes for a must see who are looking for good and clean humour.
