Perhaps the funniest part of Luka Chuppi is the way old Hindi film songs are used as background score in the most dramatic of situations. Right from the aalap of the well known Manna Dey song from Padosan ( Saanwariya Saanwariya), Sajan ghar mai chali from Hum Aapke Hain Kaun, Tujhe Sooraj Kahoon ya Chanda from Ek Phool do Mali even Jaan Pehchaan Ho from Gumnaam – the songs are placed in the most unusual of situations and sit perfectly with the narrative of the film that bases itself on live-in relationships in small towns. In this case Mathura and Gwalior.

Kartik Aaryan – Kriti Sanon play a couple keen on a live-in relationship and manage to live together but what ensues is a comedy of errors that keep the laughs uninterrupted. The film is shot in Gwalior largely and deals with issues such as joint families, gossiping aunties, moral policing etc and the issue of a couple in love who want to live together to see if they can be married at all.  Aparshakti Khurrana plays an important role and pulls out a few laughs in this light-hearted comedy. Kartik who charmed us as the wicked Sonu in Sonu ke Titu ki Sweety plays the kind-hearted Guddu in love with Kriti in Luka Chuppi and is at ease with his role and his character of a TV reporter. Also, he is a Gwalior boy and is at perfect ease in his hometown where the film is majorly shot. Kriti Sanon looks pretty and elegant in her role that also reminds you of her role in Bareilly ki Barfi. Pankaj Tripathi plays Babulal, who is a compulsive saree-chaser throughout the film and lends his brand of humour to the narrative. Vinay Pathak as the politician Tripathiji is convincing in his role in the film which is a situational comedy.
The brilliantly written film by Rohan Shankar offers the right punches in dialogues and has been expertly directed by cinematographer Laxman Utekar.
A fun, light hearted film with a small suggestion of a message. Nothing preachy!
