he level of imagination you can expect from debutante director Laxman Utekar’s Luka Chuppi is equal to the imagination you can expect from the film’s soundtrack: All five songs are remixes. In case you’re still doing the math, that amounts to zero.

For starters, Luka Chuppi has the restraint of a Taher Shah video. But I assume even Taher Shah spends more than five minutes thinking about what he is setting out to do. The film’s background score has as much subtlety as a Ganpati procession in Worli. And even a random emoji ends up conveying much more than what Luka Chuppi manages to say about live-in relationships in two hours, replete with cringeworthy humour on Muslims, women, and AIDS. Going by how up-to-date the film’s makers are with millennial dating trends, rest assured, we can expect a primer on polyamory by 2056 starring Kartik Aaryan’s grandson. Essentially, Luka Chuppi is the film equivalent of an unimaginative meme made by a dudebro who is convinced that it’ll break the internet when in reality it doesn’t even warrant a pity share.
