This is yet another movie talk. The one on the radar is ‘Pyaar ka Punchnama 2’.
Okay, it was one horrible night where I was literally writhing in pain. And I took some pain-killers and while waiting for the medicine to take effect, I decided to check out an Indian movie since it was ages I watched one. The last Indian one I saw ‘PK’. I intended to watch ‘Bangalore Days’ on the recommendation of a friend. But, somehow I couldn’t find the link easily and instead ended up watching ‘Pyaar ka Punchnama 2’.
Boy, was I glad I did! The movie had me glued to the screen from the start to the finish. It was entertaining to watch these newcomers infuse such energy and life into their characters. They are good looking and they can definitely act. Good cast, direction and editing. Great team-effort on the whole!
Sure there were some misses. Like the music wasn’t all that great and the movie was pretty much one-sided in perspective. More than a punch to love, it was one solid punch to all women. The only ones who missed the cinematic boxing punches were the boy’s Mummies. Thank God for small mercies.
The movie concluded on a not-so-wise ´moral of the story´ message – ‘Sirf maa ka pyaar sacha hota hai’ (Aansoo!)
C’Mon, Boys! Time to mature up. Baap ka pyaar sacha nahi hota hai kya? And going by their own one-sided logic of the movie and in true Ekta Kapoor ishytle aur dhun – ‘Devi maa bhi kabhi ek chaalo kunwari thi!’
It’s a good Bromance comedy movie. But no where near the likes of classics such as ‘Dil Chahta Hai’ which was way more sophisticated and mature/grown-up in outlook. But still, the movie is a passable one-time watch. Think of it as the boy’s version of a chick-flick.
