Verdict: A refreshingly entertaining bromantic comedy.
After the Pyaar Ka Punchnama series, Luv Ranjan is back with another romantic comedy with a twist. Maintaining the cast from his previous movies, Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety stars Kartik Aryan, Nushrat Bharucha and Sunny Singh. This movie, like both his previous movies, is expected to be a roller coaster and the director has taken his trademark to another level.
What's Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety About:
The story is about two childhood friends Sonu (Kartik Aryan) and Titu (Sunny Singh). Titu is the only grandchild of the Ghasitaraam family and Sonu is loved by the family like their own. Titu is emotional, naive and also sort of stupid and Sonu is his savior; the more sensible of the two. After six months of breaking up with his girlfriend, Titu decides to get married and his parents take him to see a girl Sweety (Nushrat Bharucha). Titu agrees to marry her after the meeting.
Sweety is the perfect girl who is loved by the family, takes care of everyone and loves her husband to-be. To Sonu, her behavior seems too good to be true and he starts pulling tactics to "reveal" her other side, which starts a war between the best friend and the fiancee.
The movie stays true to Luv Ranjan's genre. He has successfully made another movie that is highly entertaining. It is typical to his style but refreshing for the viewers. There is less drama, more comedy and a hand full of quirky characters. The characters of the movie are detailed and the casting is on point. The movie is a winner mostly because of the actors. The best thing about Luv Ranjan is that he chooses actors above stars and that is what has made his films a success always. This one is no different. The picturisation of the movie is beautiful with different locations and a setup of a big fat Indian wedding.
The actors score full marks in their performances. Kartik Aryan as Sonu plays a mischievous and protective best friend perfectly. He not only looks good in the movie but is also the one who keeps you interested in the story. Nushrat Bharucha as the perfect bride does everything with grace and simultaneously maintains a grin on his face. She has played her character very well. Sunny Singh, the wealthy innocent Titu, has played this characters with such cuteness that you'll fall for his naive behavior. All the other actors have proved that the casting of the movie is brilliant and out of everyone Alok Nath deserves a special mention. He plays Titu's grandfather and this character was made to break the stereotypes attached to his character of Babuji. He is so good that you'll wait for him to appear on the screen. The movie also has a few cameos and surprise characters too that will add to the fun.
The movie is fast paced and hence you never get bored. There are many subtle directorial references that build the characters from the very beginning and you get to understand them as the story moves forward. The movie delivers what is expected of it. It is cute, stupid, dramatic, emotional and funny.
What Could Have Been Better:
This is another Luv Ranjan movie that portrays girls in the stereotypical roles. But if you are ready to watch the film with a light heart, the movie is really entertaining.
Why You Should Watch This Movie:
The movie is funny and engaging. With a brilliant casting, every character makes you laugh till you cry. There's not a single dull moment in this bromantic comedy, it will keep you asking for more. Watch it especially for Alok Nath, he has broken his typecast with this one and how! We highly recommend you to watch this movie in your nearest theaters.
