Satramm Ramani’s direction, as well as Rohan Shankar’s screenplay, are equally entertaining throughout. The film also humorously addresses the serious topic of Indian men’s aversions to contraception which eventually leads to population growth. Although the film begins by focusing on Lucky’s story of love, it quickly moves to Lucky looting a truck and the never-ending joy begins. One of the funniest scenes is when he creates a company called “Helmet” and attempts to sell condoms to Shambhu, as well as to the general public. There are many laugh-out-loud moments in the film that you can hold onto, but the problem is the length of the film and how it ended.
Rohan Shankar’s dialogues, particularly the one-liners “Shaadi Ke Liye Paise Chahiye The, Shaadi Ka Baad Ka Quote Nai”, and Aparshakti’s delivery with a straight face makes it funny. Shubham Shirule’s song ‘Mauka Mauka’ and Tony Kakkar’s ‘Band Baj Gaya’ are both upbeat tracks that will stay with you long after it’s over. The film’s tone is perfectly complemented by Ketan’s background score. Intervals are well used to highlight the ‘Mauka Mauka’ theme.
After playing a number of supporting roles, Aparshakti Khurrana shines as the solo lead. His comedy timing is exceptional and can be considered one of the highlights of the film. Abhishek Banerjee, Ashish Verma, and Ashish Verma are good friends and offer great comedy punches.
The film’s screenplay emphasizes that “Chahiye Magar manage, Kisi-ko Nahi Hai” is an important issue. This is something that is often overlooked and needs to be addressed. This film is a great watch because of its quirky comedy and defined performances. It also has a relevant social message.
