In times when people are fighting to create awareness about gender equality, this movie makes a genuine effort to uplift the ‘anti-women’ genre. The unfunny story of a frustrated misogynist, the movie is neither enjoyable nor funny.
The film revolves around three main characters. Titu – a young guy who is utterly clueless about everything in life. Sonu – his childhood friend who certainly is a Hindi TV serial saas in disguise. And Sweety – the supposedly manipulative true love of a clueless guy who has a chalu nature yet always ends up acting like a perfect sanskari nari. Mix these three characters with lots of sexist dialogues and dazzling costumes to get 2 hours and 22 minutes of eye rolling.
In the story, Titu agrees to an arranged marriage to heal his broken heart. Enter too-good-to-be-true Sweety with whom Titu madly falls in love. The twist comes when Sonu tries to convince Titu that Sweety is a gold-digger. To prove it, he brings out his overly protected nature that is showcased as bromance in the movie. In this battle of best friend versus the bride-to-be, the only thing that the director tries to establish is that women are nothing but manipulative being.
The movie also gives us the feelings that Earth would be a much better place without them!
Luv Ranjan who previously directed both parts of “Pyar Ka Punchnama,” failed to deliver anything new with this movie. It runs on the same clichéd lines of slamming women. In conclusion, this movie is for those who prefer cheap laugh over dignified comedy of sexes.
