Story: After 14 years, a group of college friends get together at a resort with their families. Past relationships and one-sided interests surface in nostalgic party conversations, hurting current partners. The film explores the true emotional needs of people and what it takes to discover them.

Review: 'Happily married' is an oxymoron, those who have stepped beyond the threshold of holy matrimony are often heard saying. Clinging on to memories of former partners, getting bored enough of one's spouse to find them nagging, the urge to explore new pastures in relationships and how it often ends... Lukka Chuppi (hide-and-seek) tries to explore all of this through nostalgic conversations and shots of wisdom occasionally thrown in.

Fourteen years after college, a group of friends get together to relive their past and relax. While the men and their female classmates rewind memories and romantic dreams that did not materialize, the women keep feeling left out and increasingly uncomfortable. Both parties question the meaning of their relationships and wonder why, over the years, they turned into the people they are now.

Given the nature of the subject and treatment, the risk of veering into a serious zone looms large, but thanks to the nostalgia-loaded conversations and Joju's antics, the pre-interval session is a lot of fun. Conversations turn into entertaining epigrams, though the tale is wafer-thin. The one-lines make instant connect with the audience, making them draw parallels with their own life. When Joju's character says, "There should be a legal provision that declares one's wife as sister five years into marriage, so that you can marry her off to someone else," the applause evoked is one such instance.

The post-interval portions get dramatic, with some episodes seeming long drawn out. A large part of the film itself has nothing new to offer beyond gender politics within marriages. The 'save-the-shaadi' solutions offered by a friend who makes an appearance for a few hours and its sudden positive impact also seems cliched. Just as its name, fun emerges once in a while in Lukka Chuppi and can entertain if one's expectations aren't sky high.
