Storyline

Some love stories are not simple, Sweety's is one such story. She has to contend with her over-enthusiastic family that wants to get her married, a young writer who is completely smitten by her, a secret that she harbours close to her heart and ultimately the truth that her true love might not find acceptance in her family and society. Resolving these issues proves hilarious, touching and life changing.

Missed a Golden Opportunity
11 April 2019 | by ssapkota-13781See all my reviews

Was new and interesting but filmmakers have missed the golden opportunity to make this movie gold. Length could have been made shorter and Juhi Chawla role and Anil Kapoor roles was not much important. Overall one time watch but still missing that wow factor.
