Review: Luv Ka The End
Cast: Shraddha Kapoor, Taaha Shah
Director: Bumpy
Producer: Ashish Patil

Luv Ka The End is ostensibly made for the youth of this country by YRF's new label Y-Films that has been launched, and I'm quoting from the press release here, 'to create a brand of cinema that will capture the hearts and imaginations of this elusive bunch and rock their world.' I walked out of the movie depressed. If this is really what the youth wants, we should be afraid, very afraid.

The film is about Rhea, played by Shraddha Kapoor, who is all set to celebrate her 18th birthday by losing her virginity to her boyfriend, Luv played by Taaha Shah. She has dreams in her eyes, which are quickly crushed when she discovers that Luv has only pursued her this long because he is part of some sick internet game, in which scoring a virgin gets him the biggest score. So she and her two best friends set out to take revenge using, among other things, laxatives, itch powder and super glue. As one of them puts it: Luv Nanda becomes Luv Nanga.

This might remind you of the Hollywood teen flick John Tucker Must Die, which was also about girls getting revenge on the local school stud who was cheating on them. But Luv Ka the End doesn't even manage the innocuous, bubble-gum tone of that film. Debutant director Bumpy dresses it up a girl empowerment story and the women ' Shraddha and Pushtiie Shakti, who plays her feisty friend Jugs do have some genuine sock-it-to-them moments.

But largely, Luv Ka the End is uncomfortably icky, tediously wannabe and depressingly homophobic. So characters determinedly use youthful lingo like babes, chill, BFF and of course, aren't afraid of four letter words. Everybody is styled casual cool and we even have a new age mom giving lines like: I know love is hard baby.

But the sensibility of this film is not youthful, it's juvenile. And that's before you get to the part where Luv, under the influence of some pill, dresses in drag and breaks into a song that goes: Mera jism, jism, mera badan, badan, main hun taza mutton mutton, khol dilon ke button button. ROFLROFLROFLROFLROFLROFLROFLROFLROFLROFL 

I'm not sure what demographic that is aimed at but it definitely not for me. I'm going with one and a half star.

Am I the only one who does not find the guy hot, or good looking for that matter? I must have a different taste in men, then.

And again, from the promos, it was obvious how this movie will fare. I am seriously tired of this wannabe-ish Bollywood trying to be Western kinda thing I am seeing these past few years. It annoys me so much.

LMAO I loveee this review!ClapClapClapROFLROFLROFLROFLROFLROFL


@bold: Bang on! She spoke my mind!Clap  I HATE how YRF is trying to pass this off as a a film for "today's youth"...today's youth doesn't mean only juvenile, superficial, shallow, wannabes, Mr. Adi Chopra...wake up and try to go for some MATURITY in your films. These ppl think that this is all "fun"...please give more credit to the youth of today than this...they are not one-dimensional...atleast that's what I'd like to believe.

It is the old debate of Entertainment vs. Inspiration or education.  Just today I read a new tellybuzz article beginning with the quote, 'Anyone who tries to make a distinction between education and entertainment doesn't know the first thing about either'- Marshall McLuhan

I would retort with another quote or maxim 'power tends to corrupts, absolute power corrupt absolutely.'  Could we borrow from that and say 'money tends to corrupt, a lot more money corrupts exponentially' (money translating as greed/need for money)

I know I sound bitter but at the heart of my angst is the Y-films promotion, and I quote verbatim 'that hopes to challenge the norm and detonate boundaries. '  Is Luv ka the end' challenging the norm? The 'issues' raised seem to revolve around 'selfishness', and to be frank they are neither subtle nor exceptional. It is the same old, same old, that I can find being repeated on every street corner and behind every college bike shed!  Am I very much disconnected from the youth? Is this what concerns them now?  Is there no hope for inspirational betterment?

Some media want to make money.  Rarely a film only wants to make a social statement, have higher aspiration for social improvement.  Although gone are the days of Satyajit Ray, I would hope that some would still want to do both.  Do you not agree that it is the latter two categories of art that would instill love and honour from its viewers?  Viewers can sense shallowness and also conversely feel sincerity of intention. That is why even with low production values and bloopers and very inconsistent editing a film can become an overnight success, well at least on the internet. : P 

We could argue that it is about supply and demand, as I speak as one who is way out the the intended demographic for this film, but I must speak now for this generation is in whose hands I leave this beloved earth of mine. 

Did the creatives become corrupted or did we (majority of society) corrupt them?

I truly don't know who is to blame.  It's the age old question of which came first the chicken or the egg?  Did the media/tv/magazines etc dumb us down or did they only cater to popular demand, in which case society has a lot to answer for!  I being the minority, those who ask for something more, a little extra effort and sincerity of intention, don't really interest the creatives, so I guess I should work upon changing the attitudes of the majority...

...maybe I should create a film ...

                                                             ...isn't this the cycle of life. 

Purity of intention followed by corruption.  So how do we remain true to ourselves in this world?

Y-films again state that they intend to be 'A studio that promises to deliver kick ass films of the youth, by the youth, for the youth. And be a platform for talent ' both on screen and behind the scenes ' who will break and set new rules of story-telling.'  The only part of Luv ka the end that I found had any truth of this statement was the honourable portrayal of a slightly overweight girl who was intended to be laughed with not at, something new for Indian film roles. 

The silver lining to this cloud for me is the 'minority' of the viewing youth who spoke out, raised objections and said this isn't us, isn't what interests us therefore do not say that it is for us!  In these voices I see the leaders of tomorrow, the role models, the ones who can lead us out of the pit of the shallow.

It is in these people, and not the creatives, that I now place my hope!

My message to Y-Films.  This isn't America, this is India/Asia and though I would whole heartedly agree that new times means a different approach, its essence, its message should be gleaned from our OWN legacy.


Gandhi said, 'You must BE THE CHANGE you wish to see IN THE WORLD!'
