This is a fun and unique take on the romantic comedy genre.
My only problem is why did they not put an Englishized title so I can actually tell me friends when movie I saw.
The dialog is amazingly fast which does make it hard to read all the subtitles. But the plot comes through just fine.

It was a very B- graded movie which I had to leave before it ended!! No proper storyline nothing except exposer and nudity of the actress. Thought would enjoy but I guess it was a wrong decision. Regretting till date!

It was indeed better than Pathaan... Don't know why but I was really bored while watching Pathaan, especially, whenever Deepika came on screen. Only went to watch it for SRK's comeback but also became a Fan of John after watching it.It seemed like everything in Pathaan was from every action movie I've seen in my whole life...
But while watching TJMM, I was getting entertained in every moment and it constantly brought a smile to my face. My friends were laughing their ass out. The emotional song did it's work perfectly, giving the movie another momentum. Then again, at the Climax... The whole Theatre was laughing their balls out.I felt Joy and happiness. Felt this after a long time.

First of all, she was not a jhooti/liar and he was not a makkar. The movie just lacks substance, emotions and originality. It picks up in that las half. Rest is pathetic.
Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars
First Half could be condensed and is skippable. The story actually picks up in the second half Ranbir and his family is the highlight of the movie, esp in the last 30 mins of the moviethat made the movie worth it!

although this is being marketed as a Romantic Comedy, it's not really that. It's actually romance first, drama second and then comedy.
the story is something I did not expect in a Luv Ranjan film. I was hoping for mostly a non-sensical drama with a few emotional elements but. it's actually the other way around; especially in the second half. the first half is good, follows the standard formula of building up a relationship but what bugged me was how the characters were talking. Is this really how people talk when they're in love? I mean sure, I myself have gotten cheesy at times irl but the dialogues were sometimes too cheesy, to the point of being cringe. I get it that they're doing it intentionally to create a facade among themselves but it just didn't work for me. I was not sold at their chemistry up until a scene in the bar came along where the characters are just gazing into each other's eyes and Ranbir's character mickey says what is quite possibly the best line of the film and that is what sold me on their relationship. The second half though. WOW. If it had not been for the second half, this film could've gone to the point of being a train wreck. the emotional punch the film packs along with the family drama that follows. It's almost like this film transitions into something else entirely but the themes the film is covering, I did not mind that transition at all because that's what interested me the most.
let's talk about Shraddha Kapoor for a minute. she is a talented actress. her roles in films like Aashiqui 2, Ek Villain and Haider have had a lot of impact in the hindi film industry but here, she just feels out of place, not because she is bad persay, but other people just outshine her in every way. In emotional scenes also, I couldn't feel for her as much as I should. Ranbir Kapoor though, is the absolute show stealer. his character felt like a blend of Kartik Aaryan's character from Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety and his own character Prem from Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani. He is the star of this film and the emotional beats are perfectly hit. A scene in the second half reminded me of his scene from Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani when Jenny tells her that "You don't know what Love is." I don't know but Ranbir's eyes have that perfect quintessential amount of emotions that make you feel for him. Absolutely loved his return to this genre which essentially was what made him the star he is today.
the songs are hit or miss. I like Tere Pyaar Mein and Pyaar Hota Kayi Baar Hai quite a bit, am skeptical about O Bedardiya and I didn't enjoy Show Me The Thumka and Maine Pi Rakhi Hai. Although they do work in the context of the film and they're quite okay. Pyaar Hota Kayi Baar Hai is quite the banger might I say because it really showcases Ranbir's talent as a dancer.
Some drawbacks tho, I did not enjoy the trope of long rants which the Luv Ranjan films have followed and this films uses them quite too often to be honest. I was almost annoyed at some points. Another thing was the decibel levels in the comedic segments. They were too loud and hearing Dimple Kapadia screaming at the top of her voice just to convince people that she's a caring mother is just annoying. Other characters also scream at times and I did not enjoy that. One other thing was that Anubhav Singh Bassi's character felt under-utilized. Although he is not just reduced to be the trope-filled best friend but he also didn't do much in the story. I mean, if you've included a stand-up comedian in the film, atleast give him something to do on that side.
Overall, an enjoyable film just don't expect much comedy. I found it cringe at moments but the meta references at some places were nice.
