Mickey (Ranbir Kapoor), son of a wealthy Delhi business family, meets Tinni (Shraddha Kapoor) at his friend Dabas’s (Anubhav Singh Bassi) bachelor party and it is love at first sight. The relationship which started as a time pass turns serious and both of them talk about marriage. While Tinni is an independent girl working a 9-5 job, Mickey lives in Delhi with her mother (Dimple Kapadia), father (Boney Kapoor), grandmother (Jatinder Kaur), sister (Hasleen Kaur), brother-in-law (Amber Rana) and niece Sweetu (Sweet Kapoor). Inayat Verma). Everyone in the family is open-minded, so they soon make Tinni their own. But then comes the twist. There is a rift in their relationship and both get separated. After some time when both come face to face again and many things open up. Will both be able to reconcile by understanding each other’s feelings? The story revolves around this.
Ranbir Kapoor looks quite impressive on-screen. He does a good job as Mickey despite the loose plot. From his comic timing to shirtless scenes, Ranbir has once again impressed. However, in the Luv Ranjan special monologues, he seems to be lost somewhere. On the other hand, Shraddha Kapoor has done a great job in the role of Tinni. There is no doubt that this will be counted among the best roles of his career. Shraddha has looked very confident and very glamorous on screen. Ranbir and Shraddha make a good pair. On the other hand, what gives strength to the film is its supporting cast. Dimple Kapadia as Ranbir’s mother and Anubhav Singh Bassi as his friend bring a freshness to the film. The comic timing of both is excellent. At the same time, I wish Boney Kapoor was given a little more screen space. The film also has two special cameos, which are interesting.
Director Luv Ranjan has touched upon a common issue that many couples go through today. But the story of the film is weak. Especially the first half seems very stretched, there is drama in the second half, which keeps you hooked. Whereas, the climax leaves the audience with a good mood. Here there is a lack of a major conflict in the story. Luv Ranjan, who is known for hit films like Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety, Pyaar Ka Punchnama 1 and Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2, has missed out on delivering a perfect rom-com this time. The film is good in parts. The dialogues and punchlines are whistling in some parts, while heartwarming in others.
Cinematographer Santhana Krishnan Ravichandran has kept every frame grand. Especially in the first half of the film, everything looks grand, be it the mall of Gurugram or Spain. But the second half is intimate. Here the feelings between the family and a couple are shown, so it feels more relatable. The background score by Hitesh Sonik is a plus. At the same time, editing is a weak link. Akiv Ali’s editing could have made the film a bit tighter. The film could have easily been trimmed by at least 15 minutes, which would have made it more impactful.
The music of the film is composed by Pritam, while the lyrics are penned by Amitabh Bhattacharya. There are four songs in the film and somewhere they give a little more energy to the story. While “Tere Pyaar Mein”, “Pyaar Hota Kaibi Baar Hai” and “Show Me The Thumka” harness Ranbir and Shraddha’s energy to the fullest, “O Bedardeya” in Arijit Singh’s voice gets you emotional. After a long time, it is nice to see all the original songs in the album of a film.
Rating – 3 Star
If you are a fan of the rom-com genre then there might be a slight disappointment. Luv Ranjan tries to show today’s love story and the hurdles faced by the couple. There are some shortcomings in the script of the film, although the overall film gives some opportunities to enjoy. At the same time, it is interesting to see the pairing of Ranbir Kapoor-Shraddha Kapoor on the big screen. 3 stars to ‘Tu Jhoothi Main Makkar’ from Filmbeat.
