Story: JD (Anuj Sachdeva) is looking for a perfect life partner. After his brother's marriage fell apart, he doesn't want to make any mistakes. Stuck between his mother's constant nagging about getting home an ideal bahu and an astrologer's prophecy that his marriage won't last, he marries Tia (Nidhi Subbaiah) who is perfect 'divorce-material'. Meanwhile, his mother also finds a good match for him and pesters him to tie the knot with her. JD is spoilt for choices and is far from being ecstatic about it.

Review: You'll be at a loss of words when it comes to describing Love Shagun. It is regressive, silly and incoherent. This love story is overwrought and sinks due to a whirlpool of regressive ideas that forms the basis of this story. In the very first scene of the film, we find a young guy seeking love counselling from a jyotish who tells him his first marriage will end in divorce. That one scene is what determines the course of the narrative.

Director Saandesh Nayak's understanding of an enlightened, empowered woman is inappropriate. She is apparently a bully, can't make her own coffee and gets guilty pleasure from humiliating men who have a thing for her. The woman characters in the film are caricaturish and uses every possible cliche in the book.

There are two vital things that are missing in this film. Firstly, there is no visible chemistry between the leads. They make the journey from being strangers to lovers in no time. And next, the love story is never palpable enough. No wonder the convoluted mess fails to be heart-tugging.

Added to that, even the actors fail to up the tempo of this snail-paced film. Anuj Sachdeva and Nidhi Subbaiah are average. With such inert characters, that is the best it could have been. The sidekicks are annoying and add no value to story.

Over its 122 minutes, Love Shagun feels longer than its length. It is one dull, passionless movie that gets nearly nothing right.
