While the Abhishek Chaubey directorial Sonchiriya revolves around the lives of Chambal dacoits, the Laxman Utekar directorial Luka Chuppi is all about a live-in relationship.

Sonchiriya and Luka Chuppi will be released tomorrow so let’s take a closer look at these movies and have a prediction about their opportunities of working wonder at the ticket windows.

Let’s start with the dacoit movie Sonchiriya helmed by Abhishek Chaubey. The film filled with a fascinating storyline and a talent star-dubbed cast. Sonchiriya, featuring Sushant Singh Rajput, Manoj Bajpayee, Ranvir Shorey, and Bhumi Pednekar, digs into the harsh and dusty ravines of Chambal like other similar-concept movies. The movie’s trailer showed the characters fighting casteism and the false promises of one new world. It has been seven years since Bollywood presented a dacoit film to fans with the last release is Paan Singh Tomar in 2012. Set in 1975, during the year of Emergency, the movie has once again revived the genre.

Most of Abhishek Chaubey’s films have always had thoughtful casting and strong scripts. The director has a filmography that boasts of projects such as Udta Punjab, Dedh Ishqiya and Ishqiya. Sushant Singh Rajput is one of a few TV actors who gained success when stepping into Bollywood. He has strongly impressed the audiences when essaying the role of an Indian cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni in the biopic M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story. With getting into the skin of a dacoit in the film, Sushant’s fans can’t wait to see more of him this new avatar. 

Laxman Utekar’s Luka Chuppi, on the other hand, is a romantic comedy which focuses on entertainment, quirky story and hit songs. If the Luka Chuppi’s trailer has received lots of responses on the social media platforms, Kriti Sanon and Kartik Aaryan’s paring has made the fans excited. This is all enough to attract a large number of audience to go to the nearby cinema.


Since his last outing movie named Sonu Ke Titu Ke Sweety, Kartik Aaryan has captured hearts of millions of Bollywood audiences. If beautiful stars like Ananya Panday and Sara Ali Khan are drooling all over the handsome actor, filmmakers are putting huge bucks on this new star on the block.

Besides, the film also stars Kriti Sanon, who stepped in Bollywood in 2014 with the romantic action movie Heropanti, is another reason to watch the Laxman Utekar movie. After the unexpected success of Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari’s Bareilly Ki Barfi, the actress proved that she could act well in every different character from glam and urban girl to a small town youngster.

Another reason is Luka Chuppi is different from other Bollywood movies about live-in relationships (namely Befikre, Salaam Namaste and Shuddh Desi Romance) because it has a different and fun take on this concept, it’s about ‘live-in with family’.

Sonchiriya and Luka Chuppi belong to different genres, so both movies are expected to cater to their target audiences. However, according to some reports, Luka Chuppi will have more chances of attracting more viewers due to Kriti’s enormous popularity and Kartik’s big fanbase.

Also, looking at the number of screens, while Kartik Aaryan’s Luka Chuppi will have more than 2507 screens worldwide, Sushant Singh Rajput's Sonchiriya will have only 8% screens across India. It means that Luka Chuppi is sure to earn more money than Sonchiriya.

In terms of the content, Sonchiriya is more likely to be favoured in rural India while Luka Chuppi looks like one movie which is for everyone.
