If you’ve mastered the title and seen the trailer, you’ve pretty much got all that director Luv Ranjan wants to say.

 

Sonu and Titu are inseparable childhood buddies. But it’s always Sonu who has watched out for the more gullible Titu. Extricating him from relationships with the wrong girl is a specialty.

 

But this time it’s an arranged match with Sweety. In the happy house of Ghaasitaaz, a thriving family business of sweetmeats and savouries set up by Titu’s grandfather everybody’s thrilled to bits and gung-ho in typical North Indian style over the wedding. But, as the promos show, Sonu is suspicious because Sweety is too good to be true. Nobody can be that perfect, says he. And, as the promos have promised, it’s Sonu versus Sweety all the way. But, if the promos left you wondering just why Sweety was the wrong girl, so does the film.

 

Is she a gold-digger? Is she wacko? Is she immoral, loose in character? Luv Ranjan leaves it to you to figure it out as he concentrates on making a frivolous, light comedy that some people may find entertaining. There’s a stag party in Amsterdam thrown in, one of Sonu’s many ploys to get Titu out of Sweety’s clutches. And the rather childish one-upmanship goes right up to the altar or the shaadi ka mandap, as we say out here.

 

There are a handful of entertaining moments with the grandfather and his sidekick who watch Sonu and Sweety’stug-of-war with unsuspecting Titu in the centre.

 

Kartik Aryan as suspicious Sonu, Sunny Singh Nijjar as trusting soul Titu and Nushrat  Bharucha as crafty Sweety is the young trio that valiantly tries to keep thejoie de vivre going. But it’s veteran Aloknath as the grandfather who provides some of the well-timed comic lines.

 

The music with a relentless bhangra beat and the background score where the word ‘villain’ is accompanied by a burst of the ‘Khalnayak’ title song, are pretty excruciating.

 

Luv Ranjan does take an unconventional route to end this bromance versus romance. But that’s after 140 minutes of rather inane comedy that has its takers.

 

For a comedy that could be fun for some, Sonu KeTitu Ki Sweety gets a 2* rating.
