Expectations

Yash Raj productions have been known for churning out good musical romantic films. Right since its inception, the production house has been focusing high on the music and romance in their films.

In recent times the romantic films from this production house started diluting as the romance track was not fresh and the music failed to connect on the mass level. The production house returned back with 'Dum Laga Ke Haisha' and rejuvenated themselves. Their latest venture is 'Meri Pyaari Bindu', which has some fantastic songs and promises to give us one more musical romantic film.

The unique trailer style has created right amount of buzz for the film, due to which the expectation level have increased and people are ready for a fresh romantic film.

Story

'Meri Pyaari Bindu' is a story of a writer Abhimanyu Roy (Ayushmann Khurrana), who is known for his horror - sex based novels. Abhimanyu decides to write a romantic novel and ends up back to his childhood home in Kolkatta. The city instantly reminds him about his childhood crush Bindu (Parineeti Chopra) and their wonderful moments spend together. Abhimanyu finds an old mix tape consisting of all-time favourite songs of his and Bindu. These songs were related to the important happenings in their lives. Thus, Abhimanyu decides to write down his latest novel based on the life happenings between him and Bindu. This open up the nostalgia box for Abhimanyu, which contains all the precious memories of him with Bindu.

The 'Glitz' Factor

The story concept is fresh and has been interestingly woven with good nostalgic moments attached to it. The first half is breezy, entertaining and enjoyable.People who love retro music will cherish the first half of the film. The first half is full of sweet moments and rides solely on it.

The dialogues are heartfelt and even in bland scene works to charm you. The cinematography is superb and the whole movie has been narrated in a pleasant manner.The music by Sachin-Jigar is highly melodious. Songs such as 'Maana Ke Hum Yaar', 'Ye Jawaani Teri', 'Haareya', 'Afeemi' and few more works in favour of the film.

Director Akshay Roy succeeds in taking you to trip down memory lane and gives fantastic tribute of retro songs and the colonial streets of Kolkatta and Mumbai.

Ayushmann Khurrana is superb in his part. He makes you connect with his character and surpasses his co-actors in emotional scenes. Parineeti Chopra looks great in all those bubbly and chirpy type of scenes. Rajatava Dutta and Prakash Belawadi lend good support.

The 'Non-Glitz' Factor

The second half continues to entertain till a point, after which the movie goes on the repetitive mode leading to a confused and bland finale. The second half starts to wobble and reminds up about the invisible script which is now highly required in these parts of the film.

Failing to which, the moment's starts drying up leading to a boring and unconvincing finale. The motive is different and interesting, but has been displayed without any conviction and in a bland manner. The twist in the latter part of the film does not make sense with the screenplay as well as the character of the film.

If only those scenes were shown with little more detailing the impact would have been magical. The whole impact gets diluted due to the half-baked screenplay and unconvincing track of Parineeti Chopra.

The movie had the full potential to become a feel-good film on the lines of great film makers, but settles down as an above average watch due to several flaws.Parineeti Chopra fails miserably in the emotional scenes. Abish Matthew and others were wasted.

Final 'Glitz'

'Meri Pyaari Bindu' is a sweet and sour type of film, which has many sweet moments indulged in it and at the same time thanks to the weak screenplay the movie ends up with mild sour type of feeling.

Rating: 2.5 / 5.0
