Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar Box Office Review: Pre-Release Buzz & Impression

It won’t be wrong to say that Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar is the most-awaited Bollywood rom-com in recent times. In a crowd of larger-than-life films and mass entertainers, a fun-filled rom-com was missing from the scene, and TJMM perfectly filled that vacuum. The fresh pairing of Ranbir Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor looked promising and got instant approval from the viewers. Be it a trailer, songs or promotions, the film ticket all the boxes, thus building good on-ground hype around itself.

Ranbir is already an established crowd-puller. While his Brahmastra pulled off a fantastic start, even a poorly promoted film, Shamshera took a double-digit opening. So, it was always on the cards that TJMM would open well. With many things working in favour already, the film looked nothing less than a commercial winner Bollywood has been eagerly waiting for after Shehzada and Selfiee’s failure.

So, during the pre-release phase, TJMM looked like a potential box office success!

Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar Box Office Review: Initial Start, Positives & Negatives

In Maharashtra, Dhulandi (playing Holi) was celebrated yesterday, but in all other Indian states, it is celebrated today. Due to the same reason, Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar witnessed a slow start in morning shows. During Holi, post-afternoon shows perform better, and the same is expected for this rom-com. With a good pre-release buzz, the film saw encouraging numbers coming in from the advance booking, and by the end of the day, a healthy opening figure is expected to come. So, TJMM has set a stage for itself.

Talking about positives, TJMM has been receiving mostly positive from the critics, and to an extent, it will help to gain some traction. Since yesterday, social media has been full of positivity for the film, which has hiked the advance booking response. Speaking about the competition, TJMM has an open ground to perform as the next big film is Ajay Devgn’s Bholaa, which releases on 30th March. Even the pre-existing force like Pathaan will now slow down, or even if it continues to attract a crowd, it won’t cause a huge dent to this rom-com.

Now coming to negatives, the word-of-mouth has been mixed so far, and it doesn’t match the positivity that has been witnessed on social media since yesterday night. Personally speaking, Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar is a below-average affair as it looks glittery but doesn’t offer the entertainment we have got in previous Luv Ranjan films. The content is strictly restricted for the multiplex audience, and there’s no chance this film will survive in the mass centres. So, TJMM won’t have long legs at the box office and after the first weekend, hoopla will eventually settle down. Couples and the college-going crowd might enjoy it but other than that, this film will get little attention from other sections of viewers.

Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar Box Office Review: Final Verdict

Overall, Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar isn’t a grand comeback Bollywood has been waiting for after Pathaan! It will witness a good run initially but will eventually lose its charm at ticket windows. Compared to Selfiee and Shehzada, TJMM is a relief for Bollywood as it will earn more than their combined collection. However, considering the pre-release buzz, high expectations, and the film’s scale, the Ranbir Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor starrer would be an underperformer as it is expected to earn between 70-85 crores at the Indian box office.

What’s Good:The post-interval chaos and the last 15 minutes where Dimple Kapadia decides to unleash her wildest self save this very dated concept.

What’s Bad: The runtime and how everything in this world acts as per the convenience of its leads, making it all look made up, including their reactions to things happening. Also, the dialogues need to be forgotten, please.

Loo Break: Luv tries to pack a dated product with a newly designed packing, so the first half is entirely predictable. Even parts in the second half will give you the cue.

Watch or Not?: If you are a fan of either of its leading stars, they are ultimate thirst traps. If you are thinking of watching a no-brainer, Dimple Kapadia and Boney Kapoor will save you.

Language: Hindi.

Available On: Theatrical release

Runtime: 164.30 Minutes

Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar Movie Review: Script Analysis

Luv Ranjan, over the years, has made a brand of cinema that is overtly commercial with little to no connection to the real world and characters that behave on ‘Drama Level 101’. The filmmaker is least bothered about logic and maybe thinks of some magic that is relevant to him. He gets back on the director’s chair with much bigger stars in front of his camera to make a film that has a concept at its core that is done already but packs it with a new wrapper, and that partially even works.

Written by Rahul Mody and Luv Ranjan, Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar is about a man who has made helping people breaking up his profession. Remember R Madhavan and Bipasha Basu’s Jodi Breakers? Yes, so one of the two is a very trendy version of the characters from the 2012 film and is busy breaking relationships. But one fine day, he falls in love with a woman who is equally bold in her opinions and dominating than him. Now, this isn’t a dynamic that we haven’t seen. And even Rajan and Mody know that. So they package it well.

Like, the way they introduce conflicts to this world is quite innovative. They don’t introduce an antagonist, but they make the ambition of one of the two the real problem. Now, to do so, they do a great job at writing Mikki’s family and his friend, played by Anubhav. This leads to making the setup and the background more exciting and colourful than what is actually the exhibit of this entire show. The actual humour and jokes come out of the people around Ranbir and Sharddha and a very few times from them.

The fact that Luv Ranjan has never really bothered about moral compass of his characters or himself makes one ignore the fact that he shows a little girl making a peg for herself with an apple drink, his lead woman is introduced dancing on a ‘Mungda’ type bad Hindi song in a foreign location wearing the smallest possible clothes, people making the most politically incorrect statements, and everybody only looking beautiful while sprinkling their glamour in everyway possible. But can we actually ignore it is a question.

That takes us to the fact of how convenient is every single thing in this world. Conflicts are never raised to stay, no one has any kind of problem in their lives except from how the lead couple should be married and how the woman is wearing a kurta while she is used to wearing a bikini ‘all the time’, because they are ‘progressive people’. But when the only son of the house walks away from his own engagement, people are quite chill. Also, the reason why it happens is kind of problematic because it questions girls who chose their career and space over marrying into a joint family.

Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar Movie Review: Star Performance

Ranbir Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor are a very brave casting choice considering no one can imagine the two in a setup like this. For Ranbir, this is a cakewalk of a character because he has made a career out of playing Casanova. Not many can look as charming as Ranbir when the camera is super zoomed into his face; not many can make dancing in suits look so simple, and not many can act heart broken like him. But why do him dirty by given never ending monologues Luv Ranjan? We understand it is your USP but why to do it to death? Our guy is not even breathing while saying dialogues in full speed after a point. Also, he doesn’t look 30 at all anymore.

Shraddha Kapoor helps Ranbir feed more monologues to this tale while looking super glamourous. The actor does walk miles out of her comfort zone and there is so much comfort in how she does it. While there are so many Stereotypes attached to her part and that come with a Luv Ranjan movie, Shraddha definitely grows as an actor.

Dimple Kapadia has to be the best part about this movie. The finally 20 minutes are sheer chaos and it is her that makes them so much joyous. Her jokes land on point supported by Boney Kapoor surprisingly are so hilarious that they kind of compensate for everything that is a drawback about the film.
