Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety SONU KE TITU KI SWEETY is strictly a guilty pleasure! With misogyny deeply embedded in its core, the third instalment in this women-bashing series by Luv Ranjan lacks real substance. But it’s still funny enough to qualify as a passable entertainer. Watchable! Sonu (Kartik Aaryan) and Titu (Sunny Singh) are childhood friends. Titu has always been a naive lover, who falls in love easily and Sonu has always had to step in to save him. But Sweety (Nushrat Bharucha) is the perfect bride and Titu is head over heels in love with her. Sonu's instinct to protect Titu at whatever cost, makes him feel that she's too good to be true. What ensues is a war between the best friend and the bride to be. While Sweety is trying to impress Titu and the family alike, Sonu is out to sabotage the utopian romance. By now, we all know very well that Luv Ranjan’s films are going to be misogynous. So when you go and watch this film, be forgiving to him in that respect, right from the word go. This time around he explores the new age belief where instead of two families, "Marriage" is a marriage between two friend circles. So it’s about the dilemma of the situation when you decide to get married, but your best friend and your girlfriend can't see eye to eye. The premise is interesting, but isn’t written in the most intelligent way. You have constant action happening at a consistent pace and there is plenty of humour, yet the whole plot invariably seems feigned, thereby diluting a lot of substance from the idea. Even the duel between the best friend and wife-to-be, which is the core of all the humour here, becomes repetitive after a while. Having said that, if you decide to overlook the offensive attitude it has towards women in general, chances are that you’ll enjoy this film for the most part. The music is great and visually, the film scores really high. Of the actors, the biggest surprise is Alok Nath. After trending the nation as the “Sanskaari Babuji” of Indian cinema, he just crushes and tears apart that image of his with this film. Here, he’s presented as the hep and naughty grandfather who’s still a youth at heart – totally opposite of what you’d ever expect of him. Kartik Aaryan is good with what he has at hand. He isn’t among the better actors around, but somehow after the first two “Pyaar Ka Punchnama” films, you find him just appropriate for this role. Nushrat Bharucha also does her job well. Sunny Singh is strictly average with his performance, and looks a little heavy too. The supporting cast is made from a strong set of actors, who steer this film safely till the end. To sum up, SONU KE TITU KI SWEETY isn’t outright hilarious, but is definitely a passable entertainment option for you this weekend.
