Here is a film backed by Aditya Chopra with a debutant director Bumpy who has modeled Luv ka The End on the lines of those American teen love comedies. The concept is quite similar to the English flick ‘John Tucker Must Die’. This romantic comedy is aimed to a generation that’s into chatrooms and social networking sites. Luv ka The End movie review…
Rhea Dialdas (Shraddha Kapoor) has just finished her Junior College and she has a fancy for Luv Nanda (Taaha Shah), the richest, most popular boy in college. The cute, lively girl frequently lets her emotions rule her actions and is already dreaming about herself getting married with him. She turns 18 in a day and has big plans to take their relationship to the “next level”.
Luv Nanda is the coolest, hottest, richest and most popular guy in school and every girl’s fantasy boyfriend. Belonging to the powerful and rich Nanda family, Luv has easily been making his way through almost every hot chick in school, even the teachers have a crush on Luv. Rumour has it he did it with Miss Naaz in the library.
Having something else in his mind, Luv Nanda fancies winning the contest called BBC (Billionaire Boys Club), which is a rage amongst billionaire boys. It is seen that the boys upload videos/mms of themselves and the more you do so you get points.
Luv Nanda was going to be the highest scorer this year. He can win this contest only by getting Rhea into bed with him on her 18th birthday eve. She goes along naively until she realizes that it’s not love but points that Luv wants to score.
At this point Rhea comes to know thru her friend’s brother that Luv is not as nice as she thought he was.
Now the upset teenager gathers her two best friends with whom she plots to bring down Luv Nanda who had planned to deflower her – just to add points to his profile on BBC. Rhea is out to get him by the balls, she has a plan up her sleeve with her gal pals.
Rhea decides to not get mad, but to get even and bring Luv Nanda down!
All in the span of one night with the help of her friends. Buckle up for one crazy night as the girls discover the meaning of love, life, friendship and more…
Rhea with her sister’s help Minty (Jannat Zubair Rahmani) takes away everything from the rich playboy, everything – how he attracts girls and now has the aim of having Natasha instead of Rhea. Rhea creates havoc in Luv’s life, she breaks his Car, ruins his date with Natasha, makes Luv drunk and then comes the famous Mutton Song.
It was a great idea, but the story was amateurish, followed with poor execution of Luv ka The End. The performances were something that saved the day. Shraddha Kapoor and Pushtiie S and their gang are impressive. Rahul Pardasany was fine, Taaha Shah was okay and the rest of them were quite competent.
Luv ka The End is targeted to a generation that generally lacks focus, who are spontaneous and do not care about the repercussions.
