Kuku (Varun Dhawan) and Naina (Kiara Advani), who moved to Canada post their marriage, are now planning a divorce. The estranged couple flies to India for Kuku's sister's (Prajakta Kohli) wedding and hopes to reveal the news to the family after the ceremony. However, Kuku's life takes a U-turn when he discovers his father (Anil Kapoor) is planning to divorce his mother (Neetu Kapoor).

Director Raj Mehta has tried to wrap a serious issue in humour. Maniesh Paul, who plays the role of Kuku's friend and Naina's brother, acts as a catalyst to drive up the humour quotient of the film with a few one-liners.

Varun Dhawan as Kuku continues in his domain of a guy-next-door. In the initial 10 minutes, we discover similarities with the previous characters played by the actor. As the movie proceeds, Kuku's character graduates to being more vulnerable and relatable to the audience. Varun has done justice to whatever was offered to him. Kiara Advani is impressive in emotional scenes and has a good screen presence. Though, it takes a while for the lead actors to develop on-screen chemistry.

Anil Kapoor is the soul of the film. His timing and expressions infuse the much-needed entertainment rush in the script. However, weak writing shackles his character, especially during a few emotional scenes.

Neetu Kapoor is grace personified. It's great to see her back on the big screen. Neetu Kapoor's and Anil Kapoor's chemistry is natural and is relatable to the audience.

The film's length hinders the experience of a predictable story. Dialogue is a mix of emotions and humour. Most of them will remind you of WhatsApp forwards and memes. A section of the audience might love it, while others may feel it's distasteful and unnecessary. The film has everything a typical Bollywood drama is made of - masala, comedy, dance moves, and a great star cast. If you don't have anything planned for the weekend, then JugJugg Jeeyo can be a part of your list.
