A severe lack of classic romantic comedies has led to the release of Tu Jhoothi Main Makkar. For this genre to be revived, it must be successful. Tu Jhoothi Main Makkar, directed by Luv Ranjan of “Pyaar Ka Punchnama” fame, succeeds in some areas but fails miserably in the storyline and screenplay departments.
With finest rom-com actors like Ranbir and Shraddha much was expected from this so called rom-com which turns out to neither of it. Despite having Bassi, the film has very few funny moments and lacks punch. This movie is a complete “Khichdi” because of the excessive family drama, loud performances by Shraddha and the supporting cast, stupid plots, and “PKP” monologue hangover.
In the movie, Ranbir Kapoor plays Mickey, a second-generation businessman from Delhi.
He also works as a relationship counselor as a side gig. Except for his niece, no one else in the family knows about Mickey’s side business. Mickey’s business partner and best friend, Anubhav Singh Bassi, is portrayed in the film. Mickey considers what he does to be an artistic endeavor. In the first fifteen minutes, everything is beautifully established.
Mickey runs into Nisha Malhotra (Shraddha Kapoor) while on vacation. Sparks fly immediately and in no time, they are head over heels for each other. Now, there are issues with this part of the story, which I will discuss later.
Things take an unexpected turn before the interval when Micky’s expertise works in reverse to hurt him.
Nisha wants to break up with Mickey and she contacts him for help, without knowing that he is the very same person with whom she is trying to part with.
The rest of the story is about why Nisha wants to break up with Mickey and what eventually happens.
For any rom-com to work, it should be breezy, should tickle bunnybones of youth no matter with slapsticks or sexiest jokes.
The movie should have lot of lovey dovey moments which melts your heart. But none of the basic requirement are fullfilled in this movie. Barring one or two songs, even music is not that good and its abrupt placement in the movie just makes the movie somekind of snoozefest.
Its script and screenplay are the film’s main flaws.
The script has way too many loopholes, much more than 90s David Dhawan movies.
Editing is sloppy.
Overall the movie is just passable fare which doesn’t have the potential to be in the leauge of Luv Ranjan’s own PKP. Dailogues are all one two liner monologues.
