Director: Sameer Sharma
Cast: Kunal Kapoor, Huma Qureshi, Rajesh Sharma
Rating: *** (3 out of 5)
Their is a buzz on internet that the movie “Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana is a comedy about food, love and family ties. It’s the kind of film people tell their friends they ought to see, the kind that can only have sweet, rounded endings.
Director Sameer Sharma and Sumit Batheja have worked on a very basic script but the delight is in the details. You love every character that comes on screen and the way they all play small but important roles in taking the story forward.
Talking about the star cast – Kunal Kapoor (with his well-boned and clean-shaven look) has finally grabbed a ‘meaty’ part to chew on. He’s subtle, easy and grows on you, dishing out a fine performance (if not grilled to perfection). Huma Qureshi, with her spunky act, adds spice to the story (slurp, slurp!) just when it’s going bland. Rajesh Sharma with his wisecracks throws in good humour for flavour, Vinod Nagpal says little but makes you laugh more, and Dolly Ahluwalia entertains with her sinfully saintly act.
On the whole it’s a light-hearted drama that leaves you with a smile.
