The parents of the former – Bheem (Anil Kapoor) and Geeta (Neetu Kapoor) also want to separate. The ability to Jugg Jeeyo jug effectively showcasing the talents of its entire cast is one of its greatest strengths.
Director Raj Mehta pulled out all the stops to give Anil Kapoor some of the film’s best scenes and dialogue, making the most of his flexibility. The chemistry between Kiara and Varun is energizing, and unlike other rom-coms, it’s not used as a prop. She has powerful scenes. Neetu Kapoor is a joy to behold on the big screen, and Maniesh Paul is a natural at providing comic relief.
Kiara Advani gives a solid performance with every shot. Varun Dhawan’s performance in the film was not entirely satisfactory; there were instances where he could have done better. Neetu Kapoor is endearing and captivating, and she does a fantastic job in the role. When her character has the chance to take the lead in the second half, she does her best.

The creators give each archetypal issue a comedic twist – from intrusive aunts torturing newlyweds for “good news” to a woman marrying a man she doesn’t love just to be “settled”. The film constantly uses humor to shed light on several concerns. The entire story revolves around relationship issues that are difficult to resolve, but are nevertheless handled with enough skill to keep the viewer’s interest.
