Review of the movie Honeymoon
The honeymoon movie starts with the 1971 Indo-Pak War when the protagonist Deep’s grandfather stupidly detonates a hand grenade that falls on his fields. After this, the story demonstrates how dimwitted future generations are in the same vein.
There’s not a single dull moment in its 2 hours and 14 minutes runtime, as director Amar Preet Chhabra presents an entertaining slapstick about 14 bumpkins reaching the UK on a honeymoon.
Deep can be seen as the only smart guy in the family and falls in love with Sukh (Jasmin Bhasin) at first sight. As soon as they get married, the family lucks out as the government wants to buy their land worth 25 lakhs. for 3 crores to build an airport. As the family considers Sukh a good luck charm and wants to gift her something, she asks to go abroad for a honeymoon. But the family wants to join in to celebrate their newfound wealth as they don’t know what it entails.
The rest of the film is about their antics. Deep’s bua announces many times that her husband is dead and she’s on a honeymoon with 14 people. Harby Sangha plays Deep’s brother-in-law who sells kohl on local buses and tries to do the same on the plane.

Even though it’s a comedy, the movie tries to break gender biases. Deep refuses to kiss Sukh before they are married, not because he’s conservative, but because he will consider society truly broadminded when it’s as forgiving of women as men for their bold behavior.
Jasmin shines as the simple and kind Sukh and is pleasing to the eye. Jasmin and Gippy perform a very good job, their chemistry is too good on-screen
Even though the premise of naive and loud villagers landing in England is not entirely new, and some of the series are a bit soppy, the direction and performances make this laugh riot worth watching.
