Mukta Searchlight’s Love Express is a romantic comedy tracing the journey of two parallel love stories in a train full of Baraatis from Amritsar to Mumbai. A young couple on the way to their own wedding wants to break-up, while the other couple wants to make up after a five-year-old break-up. Love Express movie review…
The first couple on the train traveling from Amritsar toMumbai decide to go against their parents wishes and break the arrangement to solemnize their arranged marriage. They want to break their wedding because it’s an arranged marriage – arranged by their parents who have been friends for decades – but they are definitely not amenable to an arranged marriage and would prefer to find their own match. So they hatch a plan and are successful but at a heavy cost to their families.
Will their parents and the elders allow this rebellion? Are the youngsters making the right decision?
Love express is a low-budget romantic comedy intended as a launch vehicle for the young talents. The major portions are shot in a ’speeding’ train and this amateurish feature film is created from the in-house talent of Whistling Woods – the acting school promoted by Subhash Ghai.
Is it too late for them to make amends? A series of situations with several twists and turns take place during this fun-filled and eventful journey on Love Express – a joyride through a Punjabi wedding on wheels that makes you laugh and touches your heart.
The train is shown as carrying the wedding party which has its typical collections of uncles and aunts, nieces, nephews and oddball characters who are expectedly loud as it is supposed to be a Punjabi wedding entourage.
The writer of Love Express makes use of all the already well known ingredients of hit comedies in his script but it is just an ordinary film. There is Inter-caste marriage and the usual tension and comedy situations between the two families. It is supposed to be enjoyable train journey with a few Punjabi Sikh characters trying to make you laugh with their funny expressions.
There is also a parallel love story, a clever old man who is flirting around and that’s it.
With most of the lead actors and technicians including debutant director Sunny Bhambhani being alumni of Whistling Woods’ first batch, Love Express is a Subhash Ghai presentation of a Mukta Searchlight production.
