Storyline: This film is basically the love story of a boy and girl who fall in love over Facebook. The guy is based in Punjab and the girl is in Mauritius. Things fall in place and both decide to get married. Here is when the whole family drama starts. The boy has three brother in laws, who are not only dominating but very demanding as well and leave no stone unturned to pose problems in this couple's relationship, knowing that the girl's father is a very strict person.

Review: Seeing the trailer, we could assume that Roshan and Rubina would play subtle in this movie and the entire burden of entertainment will be carried on the shoulders of the 'jijas' and we were right.

Gurpreet Ghuggi and Karamjit Anmol have outdone the others and this movie has quite a dose of rib tickling humour. Though the entire film is shot at 2 or max three locations in Mauritius but the family drama seems funny and at times hilarious. I'd specially mention the exceptional performance by the groom's mother, she was brilliant.

Negatives: The film does not have an awe factor and neither does the storyline make sense. The actors have just been stacked in the film but not much can be credited to them. B.N Sharma's character becomes intolerable after sometime and one feels 'bai edah ni hunda, eh zyada hee ho reha hai'. The relationship between the mother and daughters is also shown in a very negative light, yet we assume that it is this way in Punjab's villages but we've never come across such negative mother-daughter bondings. The child artists were a waste. Harby Sangha's punches were weak. The sisters didn't do much for the film and the most irritating pair was the couple who posed as Rubina's brother and sister in law in the film. They were simply not required or else the brother could have been shown without a wife. Anshu Sawney was a little too bizarre in this film.

Music: Songs were average having a mix of dance numbers, a romantic track and a heartbreak song.

Direction: Smeep Kang has done an average job and nothing exceptional for this film. His presence in the movie as chacha wasn't really a character that he had to do himself. Rather he should have given it to a more impressive actor who could have added more value to it.Mostly, the locales of Mauritius are shown through a drone or else twice or thrice during Roshan and Rubina's date. 

Production: Karamjit Anmol's debut production seems to have been made at a bottle neck budget. The shoot has happened mostly indoors at 2 houses. 

Verdict: Laavan Phere is a watchable film and the best part is that you can take your kids along for this one as it doesn't have any double meaning jokes.

Rating: 3.5/5
