Luv Chuv Tey Chicken Khurana Review In Short
A London based Punjabi youth comes back to his hometown to raise money to pay off a gangster's debts and re-discovers what it means to be a part of a family

Luv Chuv Tey Chicken Khurana Review Verdict
Do watch it for the performances by the supporting cast and the humour quotient

Luv Chuv Tey Chicken Khurana Review Story Plot
Omi Khurana (Kunal Kapoor) is a London based wheeler-dealer, who had stolen money as a teenager from his family to escape the dreary life of a small time Punjabi village.

Though Omi does not want to go back to the place he ran away from, he is forced to return to his hometown to raise money as he owes some big bucks to a gangster. Omi's plan is to raise money by hook or crook and the lad has no compunctions about committing a theft once again, if that's what it takes.

While he is thinking of ways to raise money, he realises that his ailing grandfather's secret recipe for a dish named 'Chicken Khurana' is much sought after by a rival dhaba owner and Omi ropes in his childhood sweetheart Harman (Huma Qureshi) to come up with the perfect 'Chicken Khurana' and sell the recipe, though Harman is under the impression that Omi wants to revive his ailing grandpa's old dhaba.

How Omi undergoes a transformation in the process and starts connecting with his family once more is what the rest of the movie deals with…

Luv Chuv Tey Chicken Khurana Review Performances
This is one of the few movies, wherein the supporting cast puts in a better performance than the lead actors. Though Kunal Kapoor is easy on the eyes, the poor chap cannot act to save his life and Huma, who looks like a plump hen herself, is passable enough. However, it is the rest of the cast, right from Vinod Nagpal, who plays the ailing grandpa to Rajesh Sharma, who plays the allegedly 'mentally unstable' uncle Titu to Dolly Ahluwalia, a spiritual guru with a taste for weed laced cigarettes, who are responsible for the maximum chuckles and guffaws.

Luv Chuv Tey Chicken Khurana Review Direction
Sameer Sharma, who makes his directorial debut with this movie, has certainly come up with a wholesome entertainer with Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana. The film is humorous enough and except for the one fact that it tends to get slow at times, the movie is a fun watch for sure. The director has taken care to not get too stereotypical when it comes to portraying a Punjabi family, which is a welcome change. The climax is a bit clichéd, but the performances and the humour quotient more than make up for it.

Luv Chuv Tey Chicken Khurana Review Final Word
If comedies with a Punjabi flavor (like Khosla Ka Ghosla and Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye!) are your thing, Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana is worth a watch for sure…

Experimental And Pushes Boundaries

By Reflections, MovieTalkies.com, 22 October 2012 3 / 5

Small budget comedy-dramas have become quite common in the Hindi Film industry. From Khosla Ka Ghosla to Do Dooni Chaar to Vicky Donor, these movies have their own market and have made a place for themselves. They all boasts of strong screenplay supported by theme based realistic music, which has its takers. Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana follows the same route. This time around the composer is Amit Trivedi who is on a roll this year. As the title suggests, it's a Punjabi based soundtrack.

Album begins with Kiklikalirdi, a Punjabi track rendered by Amit Trivedi himself with Pinky Maidasani and Yo Yo Honey Singh. Track stands out due to unusual voices of Pinky and Honey Singh who are simply fabulous. There is also a 'Punjabi version' of the same track which is just apt to conclude the movie with end titles.
Motorwada is up next which is full of experimentation. A listener would have to take time to settle down with this one. Amit Trivedi with Tochi Raina of Pardesi [Dev D] fame siogs this one and truly draws you in the Khurana world. Lyrics are sarcastic with a lot of dark humour and fun elements, such as Jo motorwade Tom and Jerry dekhe rove ji' or Pathey ghee khawey asli toh baat kar, shit chiriya ki warna ja saaf kar.
Shahid Mallya and Harshdeep Kaur introduce the title track Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana. It's a Punjabi folk based track composed as a romantic duet. A closer hearing will remind one of Mein Maike Chali Jaoongi from Bobby. This one just seems a sweeter version of the same. It's a theme-based track that would take the story further and fit well in the movie. Later, Tapas Roy delivers a theme track around the same song and it turns out to be melody at its best from Amit's School of Music..
Harshdeep Kaur is the new name to reckon with Punjabi Bollywood songs. After Heer in Jab Tak Hai Jaan, she experiments with Luni Hasi here. One can't be sure if anyone can sing Tere Uthe Hai Mar Java Gud Khake with so much conviction. There is a male version as well by Devender Singh of the IndianIdol fame. His young voice surprises a listener as he conveys the emotions effortlessly and accentuates the track with his simplistic effort. Though both versions might not find too many takers due to the strong vernacular lyrics, the composition is fun to listen to and grows on you.
Makhan Malai is the next track rendered by Dilbahar and Renu Jagotra. It's a cliched duet, which proves one upmanship between a girl and a boy in Punjabi folk style. Lyrics are common place as well and overall the track does not impress much while falling in the average trap.
Labh Janjua, the Punjabi Bhangra/Hip Hop singer of Baari Barse fame, makes an entry with Farukha Baadi. Song begins with a Punjabi female chorus which sets the tone and after that Labh takes over. It is the lyrics and the treatment of the song which is different and attracts the listener. This one has the fun element of Gangs Of Wasseypur songs and takes you back to the same world.
For quite some time now, music directors like Amit Trivedi and Sneha Khanwalkar have been introducing a listener to some experimental sounds. Though on a creative level the experiment might be excellent, it is not necessary that this would also lead to a commercial hit. Still, Amit Trivedi is a name to watch out for in the music world. He is loaded with talent and is a refreshing change in the world where norms were already drawn. He is someone who is consistently pushing boundaries and in that context, the music of Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana is just perfect.
