Mehrunisa V Lub U – A Letdown As Eid Release
This Eid, Yasir Nawaz is back with another rom-com “Mehrunisa V Lub U” after Wrong No. with almost the same cast. Will Mehrunisa V Lub U be able to create huge good box office business with Danish Taimoor, Sana Javed, Jawed Shaikh, Nayyer Ejaz, Saqib Sumeer and Qavi Khan? Let’s see what the film has to offer to its viewers.
Trailer “Mehrunisa V Lub U”:
Danish Taimoor returns home (Karachi) from China after three years of studies and when asked to get settled, he suggests his childhood friend Mehrunisa (Sana Javed). Things go very smooth as their parents are friends and they tie knots. When Mehrunisa reaches Karachi (the city of pollution, loudness, honking vehicles, terrorism and under-constructed roads) she starts to feel uneasy. It is then when Danish realizes that he needs to change his neighborhood for a better and pleasant tomorrow. This turns in to a huge argument between him and his father. What happens next is what Mehrunisa V Lub U is all about. Will Danish move to another area as his seems to be filled with people who are living like animals or he will have some other plans? This you have to explore yourself by watching Mehrunisa V Lub U. The plot also includes a baddie transgender Marzee (Nayyer Ejaz) and a scheming politician Malik Shahab.
Danish Taimoor as an actor fails to impress once again, just like he failed to leave a mark in Jalaibee and Wrong No. earlier. Danish Taimoor needs to loosen up as he goes overboard in many scenes and tries to bring unnecessary intensity, for no reason. For a debut, Mehrunisa V Lub U is a wrong choice for Sana Javed, her character is half baked. Playing the title character, Sana’s role is the weakest and penned halfheartedly. Poor Sana is only used as a prop i.e. visually pleasing element in the film. She doesn’t have much dialogues either. Jawed Sheikh is type-casted and has nothing new to offer. At places he loses his track and brings cheesiness. Qavi Khan is wasted. Character of Saqib Sumeer as Danish’s friend and Maulvi is on the face. He becomes awful at places. Nayyer Ejaz is out of sync, keeps on changing his vocals and baffling the audience “what is he exactly”.
The script of Mehrunisa V Lub U is the weakest. Actually there is no proper plot of the film. There are scenes which are looked forced and are dragged as well. The film has no connection with the reality; it’s a fool’s paradise. Mehrunisa V Lub U suffers from below the belt jokes, crass humor and senseless scenes which come out plain bad on the screen. Music of Mehrunisa V Lub U is unimpressive. Keeping the deadly duo of Gulzar and Sukhwinder Singh in focus, the music is anything but bearable. Must be the weakest album Gulzar and Sukhwinder has worked upon together.
The filmmaker wants his audience to believe that we are still living in early 80’s when there were no concept of internet, social media and “connecting people”. This couldn’t be digested in today’s age, as Danish talks to the picture of his childhood love “Pata Nahin Mehru Ab Tum Kesi Lagti Hogi”. One of the female characters is body-shamed because of her obesity – now that’s not decent. Even worst, there is a good 5 – 10 minute’s chunk where jokes are targeted on her physical appearance.
Choreography is purely bad. The steps given to the main leads are weak and the cherry on top is they performed it amateurishly bad. Even kids today perform better on tableaus in their annual school function.
Direction wise, Mehrunisa V Lub U is also weak. The film has a good message and that’s just it. Minus the message and Mehrunisa V Lub U is a disaster. The film will do reasonable business as it is targeted towards the audience which enjoys sleaziest humor. Mehrunisa V Lub U can be an entertainer to some, but not at all a family-entertainer. The film is stuffed with double meaning dialogue. The humor is gross. For instance dialogue like:
- Girl asking the boy, “Kia tum mere L laga dogay?”
- Father to son “Iss bachchay ko mauqa milay toh ghar bachchon se bhardega”
- On wedding night one family member shouting “Yeh akailay aadmi ka kaam nahin”, “Bachchi ki jaan le le ga” etc.
The film also lacks originality as it included the iconic scene from Andaz Apna Apna (even with background score) where Amir Khan adds Jamaal Ghota to Salman Khan’s food.
It also has the famous expression of Rajnikant “Laka Laka Laka” which is performed by Nayyer Ejazm including the background music for the same character.
As Eid release, Mehrunisa V Lub U is a let-down.
