Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar (TJMM) (2023) Movie Review: Story & Performances

Director Luv Ranjan’s romantic comedy Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar (TJMM) starring Ranbir Kapoor, Shraddha Kapoor, Anubhav Singh Bassi, & Dimple Kapadia was released in theatres on 8th March 2023 and has a box office collection of Rs 15.73 crores on the opening day’s business in India.

Rohan Arora aka Mickey (Ranbir Kapoor), his friend Manu Dabbas (Anubhav Singh Bassi) & Manu’s girlfriend Kinchi (Monica Chaudhary) went on a trip to Spain. Kinchi’s friend Nisha Malhotra aka Tinni (Shraddha Kapoor) joined them there. Mickey falls for Tinni at the first sight and they decided to go for an engagement after dating each other for some time. Then there is a twist in the story which I won’t share and spoil your interest in TJMM.

Luv Ranjan is back in the director’s chair after 5 years as his last film Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety was released in 2018. He generally does not disappoint audiences with his style of filmmaking and Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar (TJMM) is no exception. 

This is the first time he is directing a film where Kartik Aaryan and Nushrat Bharucha are not in the lead roles. Maybe their presence in the film is an X-factor to him so he didn’t forget to bring them in cameos and both looked good here.

The best parts about TJMM are the screen presence of Ranbir Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor as well as their on-screen chemistry. Ranbir Kapoor portrays this kind of character with utmost care and perfection and that’s why watching him in such roles is always entertaining. His dialogue deliveries in a few scenes will remind you of Kartik Aaryan in Pyaar ka punchnama.

Also, you will find Ranbir Kapoor’s character pretty similar to his character in Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. The plot of TJMM in parts is pretty similar to Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani & Tamasha and thematically it has similarities with DDLJ.

Last year out of his two films Shamshera & Brahmāstra: Part One – Shiva, the latter received very good responses from audiences as well as critics and became a blockbuster at the box office.

Shraddha Kapoor as Tinni looks fresh and stunning. She is perfectly fine in most of the scenes but failed to grab attention in the emotional scenes. She has returned to the big screen after 3 years as her last film in the lead role Baaghi 3 was released in 2020.

The first half of the film was very slow and it may bore you sometimes but the twist at the interval did the trick to keep audiences on the edge of their seats. The entry scenes of both Shraddha Kapoor and Ranbir Kapoor and the scene when Manu and Mickey came to know about Tinni’s plan are enjoyable.

Anubhav Singh Bassi in his debut as Manu Dabbas delivered a top-notch performance. Most of his scenes with Ranbir Kapoor are hilarious.

An ace performer like Dimple Kapadia remained mostly underutilized. Barring the scenes in the climax, Boney Kapoor’s screen presence was not felt on his debut as an actor. Inayat Verma as Mickey's niece Sweetu is sweet and cute. Hasleen Kaur, Monica Chaudhary, Rajesh Jais, & Ayesha Raza Mishra had nothing much in the script.

The editing by Akiv Ali & Chetan M. Solanki could have been far better as the film looked unnecessarily extended to 20-25 minutes. Apart from the cinematography by Santhana Krishnan Ravichandran, the compositions by Pritam & the background score by Hitesh Sonik were other highlights of this romantic comedy film.
