Luv Ranjan shocked everyone when he came out with Pyaar Ka Punchnama, back in 2011. It was probably the first time that someone had made an out and out women-hating film in Hindi cinema. The film in many ways gave rise to a whole new genre as far as Bollywood is concerned. The film’s lead Kartik Aaryan became an overnight sensation thanks to his epic girl-hating monologue. Of course, he topped it up in the explosive 2015 sequel Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2. The love-hate chemistry between Aaryan and Nushrat Bharucha has been one of the biggest USPs of the Pyaar Ka Punchnama franchise.

Three years after the grand success of Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2, Luv Ranjan has come out with Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety. While the film hasn’t officially been described as a sequel but it is certainly a successor to the Pyaar Ka Punchnama films, both in letter and spirit. The film stars Kartik Aaryan, Nushrat Bharucha, and Sunny Singh in the pivotal roles and co-stars Ishita Raj Sharma, Alok Nath, Virendra Saxena, and Ayesha Raza Mishra. The film’s basic premise is that all girls are inherently mean, manipulative, and malicious. So, unless you buy this wacky idea for the sake of your own entertainment you are better off giving it a miss!

Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety is a story of two childhood friends, Sonu (played by Kartik Aaryan) and Titu (played Sunny Singh). Titu is easily smitten by girls and Sonu feels responsible for guarding his gullible friend against the vicious girls who are always finding new ways of exploiting him. Every time Titu gets serious with a girl, Sonu takes it upon himself to get rid of her. But for how long can he contain Titu? Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety is unique a story of bromance that we seldom get to watch these days. These days on seeing two men, who are really close to each other, we inevitably start questioning their sexuality. Films like Brokeback Mountain certainly have had a role to play in this. Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety is a reminder that bromance is not an outdated thing. That two guys can enjoy a high level of emotional intimacy in a strictly non-sexual relationship.

Overall, Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety is a non-stop entertainer that can be described as the perfect follow up to Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2. The film not only fulfills expectations but even surpasses them. Yes, it is predictable, defies logic and all norms of relationship counseling, and appears a bit clichéd at times, but it is great fun nonetheless! While Kartik Aaryan and Nushrat Bharucha are yet again superb in their roles, the real surprise comes from Alok Nath and Virendra Saxena who play super-cool oldies with attitudes to die for. Credit to Luv Ranjan and team for delivering yet another fun-filled extravaganza!
