Luv Ranjan who has given us enough reasons to chuckle over urban relationships in Pyaar Ka Punchnaama and its sequel is back with a new romcom that goes by the tongue-twisting name of Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety .
And that’s where the confusion ends because once we see the sparkling vivacious trailer we know what the title means, because Sonu(Kartik Aryan) plots plans and connives to tear his best friendTitu(Sunny Singh) apart from Titu’s beloved Sweety (NushratBarucha). Because, well. Yeh Too Good Wali Chakkar Hai.
The plot seems a subverted interpretation of Jane Austen’s fiction where the heroines would scheme to tear alliances apart for matters of the heart.
Director Luv Ranjan laughingly shrugs off all proximity to Jane Austen and says, “My film is actually an endorsement of the urban reality on marriages. It used to be said that two families get married when marriages are arranged. But where are the families now? The couple’s family in the city is their close friends. In my film the guy in love is anxious that his sweetheart get on with his best friend. It’s a classic contemporary urban paradigm.”
Looking at the trailer and its leaping colours and music, dance and revelry compounded by an undercurrent of wicked machinations, this film promises to provide us with a new romcom experience this February.
