Pyaar ka Punchnama: A male version of modern romance


What to look out for:
Surprising new talent

What not to look out for:  Nothing groundbreaking, just the usual ‘fun with stereotypes’

Looks like it’s time for the boys to take revenge this weekend at the Box Office. The very recent “Luv Ka the End” did a good load of boy bashing, so it’s about time the boys did some damage control. Luv Ranjan’s “Pyaar ka Punchnama” seems to serve exactly that purpose, with a story revolving around stereotypical women characters and the men that suffer their incompetence, flakiness etc.

On the plus side, it’s got a stellar new line up of fresh talent that seems to know a thing or two about acting. They do well to join the new breed of unselfconscious actors that Abhay Deol pioneered with “Socha na tha” and was more recently perfected by the likes of Arunoday Sing in “Yeh Saali Zindagi”. And as much as I hate to admit it, the story and dialogue has much that boys can relate to.

That being said, the Bollywood style raunchy songs are somewhat of a downer.  The movie also suffers from an identity crisis in a stretched second half. The fun factor is replaced by a depressing twist to the story helped along by a (again typical Bollywood ishtyle) sad song. The underlying element of the film, we assume, is seeing the lighter side of modern romances. But the depressing second half dispels that notion by switching gears to a seriously gloomy track.

As a whole, despite all its commercial flaws, it’s still a step ahead and there is something identifiable about it. Aimed at the migrant pseudo-urban youth, it packs quite a punch when it comes to soothing their ‘bechara’ souls, ravaged by ‘undeserving ‘women.

Verdict: Women will love to hate it, while men will gang up and celebrate the fact that someone finally decided to tell their side of the story.
