Anurag kashyap’s Love triangluar story is plotted in Punjab where Rumi (Tapasee Pannu) and Vicky (Vicky kaushal) are madly in pyaar and also in ‘Fyaar’ which is somehow a known secret to her family as well as the whole neighbourhood.
The story takes a great kickstart with a good mix of romance and great songs. Just when you think it’s going right, things get complicated when Rumi’s parents catch the love birds in action and then the marriage issues drops in.
With which also enters ‘too-good-to-be-real’ NRI man with good manners and pure heart – Robbie (Abishek bachchan). Abishek’s character took me back to the ‘Main prem ki dewani hun’ scenario, but with a better performance, considering this movie being his comeback.
Tapsee being the epitome of the storyline, pulls off her character brilliantly as a hot-headed girl expressing her anger, guilt, sorrow well enough. Where as, Vicky is a carefree and spoilt brat who is commitment phobic yet loves Rumi with all his heart, also delivers commendable to this role. (I hope his hairstyle doesn’t become a trend for the upcoming times.)
The initial 30 minutes of the story was a good ride but as it goes forward it becomes more like a chewing gum which has no juice left towards the end. (P.s- I left the theatre during interval but walked back only to know the climax first handed.)
As the story moves forward what keeps the movie bearable is the periodic funny one-liners and Amit trivedi’s songs which mostly are the best songs lately.
The most unrealistic part of the movie is the reaction of family members who keep accepting the changing decision of these three millennias.
The dancing twins (Poonam & Priyanka Shah) are used more like a highly contrasted editing in an amazing picture, that is, OVERDONE.
All the 3 actors justify their role top-notch to an extent you can imagine them becoming the character themselves. This movie is a bollywood’s roller coaster ride offering a Punjai tadka. Advice: You may not want to watch this movie with your parents.
Overall: One time watch. (If you hold on your seats until the end)
Kudos to the actors and Music
