Just when the smalltown comedy threatens to sag under the weight of over-statement there comes a fresh feisty take on a live-in relationship in this Progressive Comedy (not to be confused with the Regressive Comedy as in “Total Dhamaal”) .
“Luka Chuppi” doesn’t mind bending the rules of the rom-com genre as long the tilt doesn’t make the script look cross-eyed and waylaid. A sense of madcap adventure is constantly projected into the narrative without losing grip over the grammar of growing giggles.
“Luka Chuppi” doesn’t try too hard to generate humour. It doesn’t always make us laugh. But it never fails to amuse, as Guddu and Rashmi, two Mathura-based TV journalists, get hitched, fall in love and decide to give ‘live-in’ a chance before settling in permanently.
