In the year 2011, director Luv Ranjan gained immense popularity with his hit film Pyaar Ka Punchnama, and the bromance between three new actors – Kartik Aaryan, Divyendu Sharma and Rayo S Bakhirta, featured in the film, grabbed headlines. The film’s success was based on the fact that it was a light-hearted, youthful and funny film about women and dating. And now, once again the same filmmaker is back with his favorite Kartik Aaryan, Sunny Singh and Nushrat Bharucha with a new and fresh storyline – Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety. Yes, it is a film based on a love triangle. Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety enthralls the clash between bromance and romance. So does this film succeed in wooing the audience, let’s find out.
The film revolves around Titu (Sunny Singh), who is unlucky in terms of romance. Prem’s hungry Titu easily falls in love and then his heart breaks. Sonu (Karthik Aryan), who is street smart, becomes his savior. He takes her out of bad company and relationship. After this Titu gets Sweety. Sonu advises Titu to stay away from Sweety (Nushrat Bharucha). Titu ignores Sonu’s advice and tells him that his maternal instinct is telling him to do so. It shows how close these people are!
The story of the film revolves around Titu falling in love with Sweety, who tries his best to woo her. Sonu suspects that no one can be as good as Sweety tries to pretend and he starts collecting evidence that he can use against her. She too accepts the challenge and declares an all-out war against Sonu. The suspense of the film is that who wins out of the two? Friendship or love or does the story take a different turn? The makers successfully manage to keep us hooked to the mouse-cat game between their hero and the ‘villain’.
However, there is no doubt that young college going kids are the target audience for these types of films. The film does not disappoint him. It does a great job with its dialogues and story so that the audience remains connected to it. The dialogues written by Rahul Modi and Luv with punches are youthful and fun. There are many derogatory words used along with beeps, which overall add to the fun of the film. Aloknath’s punch lines with Kartik are very funny and comical.
Director Luv Ranjan makes the film brilliantly and keeps us all hooked with the amazing Tom and Jerry chemistry between Sonu and Sweety. No, the ending of the film is not something you would ever expect and it will take you by surprise. Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety will surely make you cling to your seat.
There are some scenes in the film that should be mentioned. Those scenes – when Sweety is introduced to Titu’s relationship, Sonu’s worry for his friend is really commendable. Apart from this, the scene Jahan, Titu Ki X Pihu (the explosive character played by Ishita Raj) appears in the story. Sonu’s funny segment with servant Babu, who is hired by Sweety, will leave you laughing and laughing.
Talking about acting, Kartik Aaryan’s on-screen presence is at its best. His devious laugh and wicked charm will make you fall in love with him. Sunny Singh looks absolutely charming and delivers a stellar performance as a shy, romantic partner. He looks quite natural and believable as Titu. Nushrat Bharucha grabs your attention and every single moment she has with Kartik is awesome. The chemistry of both is amazing and both look amazing together. She plays her character well and gives a scintillating performance. A special mention should be made for Alok Nath that he plays the character of the quirky elderly Ghasitaram. He is refreshing as a whiskey+kebab loving dad and adds much-needed interest to the story of the film. Ishita Raj plays her character well as Titu’s ex-Pihu.
The music of Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety has already become a hit as music director Hitesh Sonik has again added some chartbusters songs like ‘Dil Chori’ and ‘Boom Boom Diggy Diggy’ to the film with a new twist. The background score of Hitesh Sonik goes really well with the overall appeal of Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety.
In terms of visuals, the film looks great as Sudhir Choudhary does a good job of making every frame look beautiful and colourful. Editor Akiv Ali makes the film grated and crispy. Vicky Sidana’s casting is absolutely fine.
Overall, Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety entertains the audience with a powerful punch. The film is witty and sharp, both in terms of drama and execution. At the box office, the film will be able to garner its target audience – especially the youth, who will love the film strongly. You must go see it.
