After making waves at the box office with Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety, Kartik Aaryan is back with another romantic comedy film Luka Chuppi. This time the chocolate boy of Bollywood is not paired opposite Nushrat Bharucha but Kriti Sanon. Luka Chuppi is a light-hearted comedy based on the topic of live-in relationships in small towns. While the music album, which consists of all remakes, is already making noise among party hoppers, let’s see how this Lakshman Utekar directorial is going to fare among the audience. The film also has Pankaj Tripathi, Vinay Pathak and Aparshakti Khurrana, who add the needed comic element to the film.
Luka Chuppi is expected to be Dinesh Vijan’s third superhit production venture after Stree and Hindi Medium.
Film critic Girish Johar has expected the film to rake in around Rs 5 crore on its opening day. He told a leading daily, “Luka Chuppi has a good star cast with Kartik Aryan and Kriti Sanon top lining it. Kartik, after the success of Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety, is on a high and he is slowly and steadily increasing his fanbase across the country and Kriti is a well-established actor. The film seems to be a desi rom-com that the families and the youth would want to watch.”
He added, “It’s a colourful film and they have come out with a remix of many popular tracks which I believe has created decent buzz but still the chartbuster song is missing in its album. Nonetheless, awareness levels are quite high. I feel Luka Chuppi should earn somewhere around Rs 5 crore on its opening day.”
Luka Chuppi is also clashing with Sushant Singh Rajput’s Sonchiriya. Talking about that Johar said, “Both films have their own space at the ticket counters since they belong to different genres.”
