A sarcastic take on Love, Pyaar ka Punchnama explores the shift of power between genders in today’s society, and its effect on modern relationships. The film presents a point of view that for years men have patiently fulfilled the atrocious demands, submitted at the hint of a tear and bore the brunt of vicious mood swings of women in the name of Love. Pyaar ka Punchnama movie review…
The females in the movie are shown to be too clever, shrewd, self-centered, manipulative and playful when it comes to their love affairs.
Pyaar Ka Punchnama is the story that revolves around three friends – Rajat (Kartik Tiwari), Vikrant (Raayo S. Bakhirta) and Nishant (Divyendu Sharma) who live in Noida, working for different IT firms. The movie deals with their lives after each of them get involved with girls.
Nishant’s pet name is Liquid and he is a short-tempered guy who is frustrated with his work life. Rajat is the first one among them to find love, and soon gets into a live-in relationship with Neha (Nushrat Bharucha), who doesn’t let her parents know about the relationship.
Vikrant, the other handsome dude who plays guitar extremely well, finds companionship with Rhea (Sonalli Sehgal), a Delhi College of Engineering pass out after he recommends her for a job.
Liquid the outspoken guy of them all, Nishant meets a gorgeous friend Charu (Ishita Sharma). He assists her financially and even becomes infatuated with Charu who works with him in office. He proposes to her but finds out she already has a boyfriend. Nothing wrong in being friends, they feel. Life seems fun for the three friends with their share of love.
But these relationships are not so harmonious to last that long. Rajat soon finds out that Neha is the self centered and demanding girl and so does Vikrant who comes to know that Rhea is the withdrawn type and prefers to remain aloof.
Pyaar ka Punchnama appears to have made from the boys perspective and has everything written keeping in view the trauma faced by the men in an affair.
At one time, the three guys are mistreated / cheated by their girlfriends, who eventually break off the relation. It might not amuse the ladies at all, infact they could find it offensive as in the film the girls shamelessly use sex as a means to get what they want from the silly boys.
Its Liquid who takes the cake in his performance. Other two are fine. Among the girls, Nushrat tops them all with a bigger role and looks hot too. Ishita and Sonali are good looking are perfect for the kind of role they had to play.
Pyaar ka Punchnama will find appeal with the masses and the classes alike as it has the potential to entertain you in bits and parts. The youth will like the film as the story is more realistic and believable than other bollywood flicks. The film has brilliantly written dialogues which are exactly similar to the spoken language of the today’s youth with abusives and some self-made terms at places.
