Omi Khurana's London dream has just ended. On the run from a dangerous UK gangster who he owes money to, Omi returns to his native village in Punjab, pretending to be a well-heeled London lawyer. Much has changed since Omi ran away from home a decade back after stealing money from his doting grandfather, Darji. The old man has since become senile and most importantly, forgotten the secret recipe of "Chicken Khurana" a dish that made the Khurana dhaba (restaurant) famous across Punjab. Omi's childhood sweetheart, Harman is soon to be married to his cousin, Jeet, though neither seems too happy about it. Adding to the quirkiness of the Khurana family is a free loader uncle, Titu, who once did a stint at a mental asylum. Will Omi be able to cover his deceit and lies for long, even as he tries to recover the lost recipe of Chicken Khurana - the family's only hope to reclaim their pride & wealth. Written by
I remember, once I had my privilege to taste my uncle's spicy mutton curry. It's been more than a decade and I am yet to find the secret of the recipe and those lip-smacking flavors again on my taste buds. I am sure, you all have yours favorite too when it comes to the best of recipes, one dies to have.
Debutant director Sameer Sharma's LUV SHUV TEY CHICKEN KHURANA is quite a delicious dish in terms of providing wholesome entertainment for a complete 'Indian at heart' family. It has all the vital ingredients like the most sizzling characters who sure resemble with many in your neighborhood or in the native family, aromatic locales & lingo that take you back to your roots and a perfect mix of mild-peppery-spicy moments; only thing that could make you cringe in your seats, is the preparation time to reach till its finale but trust me on this, the more you wait for the food, the better it gets in taste. You will never regret your precious time spent in waiting.
At his first effort, Sameer Sharma scores big in the impressive 'slice of life' writing and the casting that never falls flat, not for once-not for even in its least significant characters. Besides the competent kunal Kapoor & huma in the lead, its veteran Vinod Nagpal, Rajesh Sharma as titoo mama, Rahul Bagga as jeet who all make it a feel-good watch for everyone in the family. Rush to the restaurants serving it or just wait to try this at home but please have it on your plate
