Sameer Sharma’s debut work – Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana won’t let you sit in the seat peacefully, you will laugh hard rolling in your seats. It’s one of those light movies, in which you do not have to find out ‘moral-of-the-story’ or try to implement ‘substance’ in 2.5 hours.
Kunal Kapoor as Omi excels along with Huma Qureshi as Harman in their first solo together. Kunal proves his ability (not as a sidekick, but as the lead) and Huma looks fresh. The characters such as Titto, Jeet, Bagha, Omi’s Uncle and Aunty assure that you never lose that giggle in the whole movie.
Movie rolls ahead as Omi gets kicked out of London to get money from his hometown in Pujab, as he has taken a big sum from a gangster. Having no choice, Omi returns to his town in Punjab – thinking of easily collecting money from their successful business of dhaba, but things changed since he ran away to London 12 years ago.
The movie revolves around his quest to find the ingredient of ‘Chicken Khurana’ – a famous Chicken dish his Daarji used to make. But, the twist is – no one knows it. Along with this Omi crosses paths with his childhood love Harman who is now marrying his cousin.
Now, you just have to sit on the joyride in his quest to find the ingredient, love with side characters playing in and killing you with laughter bombs and even with a classic pinch of love-bridge between Bengal and Punjab.
The North Indian touch and language is successfully used to enhance the comedy genre of the movie, along with the portrayal of family-love. Characters are well cast and potrayed.
No loose ends, no stretched moments and an awesome soundtrack. The music blends well with the frontend celluloid display.
It’s worth your money. Everyone who was missing a light, comedy, fun-packed movie – you are in for a treat!
