Review: Pyaar Ka Punchnama

Cast:Kartikeya Tiwari, Rayo Bhakhirta, Divyendu Sharma, Sonalli Sehgal, Nushrat Bharucha, Ishita Sharma
Director: Luv Ranjan

Pyaar Ka Punchnama, written and directed by debutant Luv Ranjan, starts out with some promise, echoing Dil Chahta Hai with a laid-back, buddy vibe but that evaporates as soon as the women appear.

Played by Nushrat Bharucha, Sonali Sehgal and Ishitta Sharma, these women are uniformly intolerable. I didn’t want to spend five minutes with them so I couldn’t understand why these men devote so much time and energy to making them happy.

The plot is inert and the dialogue, vacuous. The film feels like it’s in slow-motion. Nothing much happens for a very long time.

The boys Rayo Bhakhirta, Divyendu Sharma and Kartikeya Tiwari are much, much better than the girls – Divyendu and Kartikeya even manage to infuse some emotional heft into the proceedings but finally, this script proves to be too high a hurdle to clear.

I’m going with two stars.
