Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety is the 4th film from the hit team of Pyaar Ka Punchama. Is it as good as the PKP films or does it fail to impress like Aakash-Vani?
Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety stars Luv Ranjan’s regular cast of Kartik Aaryan as Sonu & Nushrat Bharucha as Sweety. Sunny Nijar who has been part of 3 of the 4 films directed by Luv Ranjan is also a part of this movie. The movie stars off with Titu breaking up with his GF – Pihu, thanks to his BFF Sonu. Titu is the wealthy scion of the Ghasitaaz sweet franchise. Sonu is his BFF since childhood & they live together. Sonu makes Titu realize that his GF is cheating on him & doesn’t deserve his love. Six months later, he meets Sweety through an arranged marriage setting. While Sonu feels there is something amiss, Titu is totally floored by Sweety. Sonu & Sweety square off against each other. Both proclaim that Titu will eventually side with them. What follows is a series of funny incidents, ending with Titu choosing one over the other.
Luv Ranjan has a flair for comedy. His PKP franchise is testament to that fact. Thankfully he doesn’t disappoint us in this movie. Kartik Aaryan is fantastic as Sonu. He is the lead character & he shoulders the film well. A star truly has arrived. We do hope other film makers take note of this bundle of talent. Nushrat Bharucha is fire to Kartik’s ice. Their games of one upmanship will leave you in splits. Their scenes together are gripping. Sunny Nijjar is decent, but could have played his part better. The music is good. Alok Nath is hilarious as the Ghasitaaz family’s shrewd patriarch. His scenes with Virendra Saxena are dynamite. The movie will make people reminisce about the two PKP films & its misogynistic themes.
The weirdest part about the movie is that the villain does nothing wrong apart from saying that she is “chaalu”! Yes, she does threaten the hero that she will throw him out, post her marriage to his friend. But then again, isn’t that every woman? Are the makers trying to say that all women are evil? The ending too did look a a bit impractical. But hey! it’s bollywood. Please don’t analyze the movie too much & just enjoy it.
It is highly recommended to watch this movie with your guy buddies & not with your wife/GF who would ask you, your opinion on the dilemma the hero’s friend faces – which may lead to disastrous results! It is a funny movie which shouldn’t be missed.
