Storyline

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 Production

A Terrific Film!
13 July 2013 | by (India) – See all my reviews

'Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana' is simply A Terrific Film! The Screenplay is fabulous, The Direction is perfect & The Performances are outstanding. An Under-Rated Gem from 2012!

'Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana' Synopsis: 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?

'Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana' works from start to end. The story appeals, the characters work & the overall outcome, is damn good. Sameer Sharma & Sumit Batheja's Screenplay is fabulous. It delivers a story that's different, but at the same time, endearing & moving. A special mention for the lovely dialogue. Sameer Sharma's Direction, on the other-hand, is perfect. He has handled the film like a pro, although this is his directorial debut. Cinematography, Editing & Art Design, are proper. Music by the supremely talented Amit Trivedi is impressive.

Performance-Wise: Kunal Kapoor is delightful in the central role. Without a doubt, this is Kunal's finest performance to date. Huma Quershi is wonderfully restrained. Rajesh Sharma is incredible. What a scene-stealing performance! Rahul Bagga is highly efficient. Vinod Nagpal is very good. Rajendra Sethi is always note-worthy. Dolly Ahluwalia & Vipin Sharma are brilliant in cameos.

On the whole, 'Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana' is worth a bite!
