Love Per Square Foot (2018)

STORY – 0
DIRECTOR – 1
ACTOR – 1
MUSIC – 1
CULT – 0

 

Verdict – 3/5

 

PROS –
1) Opening credit rap-song: “Yatri Kripaya Dhyaan De”
2) Anand Tiwari managed a huge ensemble with great efficiency. Most of the cast from the Indian-web-series-circuit marked their presence even with minor roles.
3) Angira Dhar as Karina, Kunaal Roy Kapur, and Raghubir Yadav‘s performance stands-out.
4) That Ranbir Kapoor cameo.

 

 

CONS –
1) Rom-Com with a predictable story with a cliched climax where the bride came to her sense in the wedding aisle
