Mostly everyone from the young generation has at least used a dating app once in their lives. It is a new way to meet people, make friends, have one night stands, and also find a life partner. But what if the guy you or the girl you swiped right turns out to be a terrorist? Sounds scary right?

Well, writer-director Abir Sengupta has made a film revolving around this subject titled Indoo Ki Jawani.

The film is about Indoo (Kiara Advani), who stays in Ghaziabad, and she is so pretty that all the men in her colony, from kids to oldies, are eyeing her. But of course, she is not interested in them and wants to get married to her boyfriend. But the boyfriend cheats on her and Indoo’s friend Sonal (Mallika Dua) tells her to join Dinder (a dating app) to meet guys and have one night stands.

Indoo swipes right to Samar (Aditya Seal) and calls him to her place for a one night stand. While the two are getting close to each other, Indoo comes to know that Samar is a Pakistani. On the other hand, a couple of terrorists have entered Ghaziabad and Indoo feels that Samar is a terrorist. But is he actually the terrorist? Well, the movie moves forward showcasing how the plan of a one-night-stand becomes a nightmare for Indoo.

Abir Sengupta’s story is interesting, but the film is stretched in the first half and there are never-ending scenes in it. The first half is totally boring and there are a few sexists and vulgar jokes that don’t make you laugh at all.

The film picks up amazing in the second half when the whole India-Pakistan angle starts. The arguments scenes between Indoo and Samar are damn funny. Also, the climax has been shot very well. My only major problem with the film is why the makers decided to title it Indoo Ki Jawani? They could have titled it something else.

Performance-wise, both Kiara and Aditya have performed wonderfully. Kiara as Indoo is the soul of the film. She has surely given one of the best performances of her career. Aditya Seal is damn good in the film, and he is looking super hot. Mallika Dua is the same as what we have seen in her videos on YouTube.

The music of the film is quite good. Songs Haseena Pagal Deewana and Dil Tera leave a mark. Heelein Toot Gayi comes in end credits and it’s also an enjoyable track.

Overall, Indoo Ki Jawani is an entertaining rom-com, and watching it in a theatre will surely make you feel good.
