What do you call a movie where the actors are as lost as the audience? Where the plot is tragically whimsical and the series of events that take place on the big screen make absolutely no sense? Definitely not a comedy. And Thoda Lutf Thoda Ishq has been wrongly categorized in the genre. The film centers around two lecherous friends Jhumroo and Ghumroo who wander around aimlessly while their female counterparts Mini and Chuski work in a shady beauty parlor. The four take on their own joyride with tacky songs and unnecessary slow motion dance sequences.

Right from the beginning, the plot is so disheveled that it’s hard to comprehend what is going on. Actors walk in and out of the scene. They crack annoying jokes, cry, sing, stare at each other, dance and fall in love. Hiten Tejwani, who is a household name for his stints on the small screen, is quite a surprise. For someone who has played an obedient son, husband, father for a major part of his life, to portray a wanton goofball is definitely something new. He should be applauded for his brave attempt at trying out something completely different from his usual projects. Rajpal Yadav, however disappoints with his unconventional comic timing and over the top jokes.

Why should you watch this film?
With barely anything to offer as a comedy, Thoda Lutf Thoda Ishq will surprise you with the Hiten-Rajpal pairing. The bromance between the two will make you crack up a few times. Filled with conventional puns and glitzy dance sequences, this film will make for a good watch on a weekend with no major blockbusters in the theatres.
