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.

Nice subject but had more scope to explore
19 April 2019 | by rohindeshmukhSee all my reviews

After you watch the film, what you remember is the super acting by the supporting cast: 'mind shattering Juhi Chawla' and the stud 'Anil Kapoor'! The actors cast as domestic help are also good. Not to miss Rajkumar Rao, of course. You hardly remember Sonam Kapoor for her portrayal of a lesbian. I believe the relationship between the lesbian couple should have been explored more since it's the main subject of the movie.
