Finally I got to see a good movie on a Friday morning! Pyar ka punchnama 2 is a hilarious take on relationships albeit from a man’s point of view. The script is funny, the actors almost all good and the pace is clipping.
There is not much to the story really. Three bachelors fall in love and then their relationships knit and unravel and knit again and life goes on. Not much different from real life and therein lies the fun quotient in the move. Life’s truths are easier to face in a movie. We all have gone through or know someone who has gone through relationship issues and we can watch and laugh in the dark knowing that this can happen to any of us.
The point of view of the movie is of course totally skewed to the male perspective. The women are seen as either frivolous or money grabbers or spineless ie very unidimensional. We don’t get to hear their side of the story. Maybe it’s time for a female version of Pyarr ka punchnama. But then even this is perfectly ok. After all, when we hear of relationships we only hear the point of view of the person doing the telling, and if that person is our friend we support him or her irrespective of what the truth is. It is also an interesting watch as it gives you a peep into a man’s brain ( not much there if you ask me, but that is a woman’s perspective!).
The cast is decent as such with a few people being better than the rest. I especially liked Kartik Aryan’s Gogo and Sunny Singh as Chauka. Kartik gets a hilarious long monologue in the second half that is outstanding. Amongst the women Nushrat Bharucha does a good take on a ditzy Chiku.
The movie is a fun watch with lots of great lines. The only irritating thing were the totally unnecessary songs. Our movies must really get away from this need to throw in songs whether they are needed or not. THe movie may also have been more well rounded if the female characters were better sketched out. It would have made the movie more interesting but maybe not as funny. Viewed as a light hearted take on love it works.
Go watch this movie, laugh at the jokes, laugh a bit at yourself.
