Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar movie Story:
Mickey(Ranbir Kapoor) looks after his family businesses in Delhi. He also secretly runs a breakup business with the support of his friend Manu Dabbas (Anubhav Singh Bassi). Manu Dabbas, who is about to marry his girlfriend Kinchi (Monica Chaudhary), requests Mickey to help him with his breakup. Mickey and Manu Dabbas leave for Spain for Manu and Kinchi’s bachelor party. During this trip, Mickey comes across Tinni (Shraddha Kapoor), a friend of Kinchi, and falls for her instantly. Though Tinni is reluctant initially, she starts loving Mickey slowly. Mickey and Tinni even get a nod from both their families for marriage. Suddenly, problems develop between the lovebirds, and the marriage gets canceled. What are those problems? How did they affect the pair? Did Mickey and Tinni sort out their issues? This forms part of the crux of the story.
Pritam’s songs are superb and make one vibe to the movie. Especially Tere Pyaar Main and the Thumka song are lovely to watch on the big screen. The background score by Hitesh Sonik is good. Santhana Krishnan Ravichandran’s cinematography is exquisite, as the movie looks colorful throughout. The production values are splendid, and the songs are shot in a lavish manner. The editing is below-par.
Coming to director Luv Ranjan, he played nicely to the strengths of Ranbir with Tu Jhoothi Main Makkar. But, what’s more, remarkable is the way he incorporated the family drama amidst a youth love story, thereby giving the film a nice depth. A relevant topic in society is told in an entertaining manner, and the output was good as the film has talented artists like Ranbir and Shraddha Kapoor. That being said, the first half needs heavy corrections. Also, the makers should have focussed on reducing the lengthy conversations, which affected the impact as a whole.
