The story of the film ‘Luka Chuppi‘ is quite interesting and simple. A couple, local television reporter Kartik Aaryan (Guddu) and an intern Kriti Sanon (Rashmi) meet for the first time and decide to go for live-in in order to check their compatibility before getting married.

But the small town, not ready for such a relation denies accommodating an unmarried couple. In order to get home, the couple fakes their marriage, until Guddu’s family come to know of this and decide to live with Guddu and Rashmi. And if this is not enough “siyapa” in their life, Rashmi’s father who is a local right-wing party leader is totally against such type of relationship.

The situational comedy explores the issue of live-in (with family). The concept is unique and hilariously complicated, but that’s what Bollywood is all about now. The overall entertaining film has hardly any dull moment. Some other social issues like misogyny, gender inequality, caste bias and moral policing also peddle along the main plot, in a funny way making the film more enjoyable.

Laxman Utekar is making his directorial debut with this film and he has already appeared as a successful one by doing such a fine job, for a debutante. Kartik and Kriti’s characters are quirky and convincing as small-town residents. Their chemistry is not exactly sizzling, but quite persuasive, just like the narrative needs.

One can not just get over Aparshakti Khurrana‘s character Abbas, the second lead, a supporting friend and his noticeable comic punches. Pankaj Tripathi who is regular to this genre has been wasted in an underwritten role. The rest of the cast contributes generously to the plot and story. Both the halves of the movie is packed with funny moments and unpredictable twists.

Taking everything into account, the film is fulfilled ride, with no double meaning or vulgarity, which can be watched with family.
