Luv Ka the End Review: The latest film from the house of Yash/Aditya Chopra under their new banner of Y-films has both positives and negatives associated with it. But as per their reputation, the banner does have its economics rightly placed which will surely enable them to get some descent returns from the movie despite of its few downers (if the film registers itself in the hip crowd). In the supporting cast, Taaha delivers an OK performance as the rich Casanova and all the gang members also perform their part well. Shenaz Treasurywala has only two scenes in Luv Ka the End and Archana Puransingh is not anything out of the routine. However Ali Zafar, once again proves that he has got the star material and charm to be a Solo Hero in his short cameo act towards the climax.
Luv Ka the End, basically revolves around a revenge plan made by Shraddha and her friends against a handsome rich brat of their college. The boy wishes to exploit her sexually and then is willing to use her video to be uploaded on a website which gives point to all boys for such rare footage. Luckily Sharaddha gets to know his intension before the D day and then decides to teach him a lesson in her own style. The first half of Luv Ka the End is fine with the right pace and sequences which keep you engaged. But the real downers occur post the intermission. In its second hour it becomes a bit slow with a completely unwanted item song ‘Mutton’ which doesn’t make any sense and is quite annoying. Post interval the script lacks the fun element which returns only towards the climax making you feel a little less satisfied. There is one additional side tracks thrown in by the writers of a younger sister and Daadi, which seems to be totally out of place and could have been avoided.
A film particularly made for the Hip generation needs to be equipped with some great energetic songs. But Luv Ka the End lacks in this department as I didn’t find the songs too good other than the Ali Zafar’s Track and ‘Tonite’ which is nicely composed and sung. The first time director Bumpy, gets the mood of his film perfect but he cannot be praised a lot since he keeps it too simple and also heavily borrows from the American Campus Comedies already hugely famous in our part of the world due to their porn-like subjects. Interestingly the director also makes a cameo in his film as the computer freak who actually tells the girls everything about the culprit website. But still, if you don’t really care about its inspirational status and are really willing to see a Youthful Bollywood Campus movie, then chances are that you may like it in the end and have a good time in the theater along with your whole group. Hence, give it a chance if you are a game for such bubbly stuff.
