Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2 PYAAR KA PUNCHNAMA 2 is fun, only while you watch, not memorable! Encashing on its highly relatable theme, the film makes sure you’re kept entertained with constant (albeit overplayed) drollery that goes on uninterrupted the whole time. However, in the course of matching up to its predecessor, it turns out to be repetitive. At best, a guilty pleasure. The story is of 3 unsuspecting bachelors who fall for the girls of their dreams, or so they think, until the dreams are turned into nightmares. Riding the roller coaster ride of relationships, the three are tortured in their own unique, yet relatable ways. The film’s strength lies in the connection that it bears with real life modern relationships. The portrayal lacks depth and subtlety, but the relevance is very much there. It’s the over dramatization that spoils the experience somehow. Instances are glorified and situations are exaggerated, just to make them more massy. The situations make sense, but the treatment doesn’t always. The situations that men face with their girlfriends are palpable, but screenplay is mostly unconvincing. The fun, nevertheless, never ceases. You have a riveting screenplay, which although many a times, lacks finesse, is never draggy. The production values are high and visually, the product appears to be of a good quality. The breezy feel of the film is consistent from start till the end, which makes the film fairly entertaining. The songs are decent. The performances however are mostly hammy. Nushrat Bharucha especially, overacts like there’s no tomorrow. Even her last time partner, Kartik Aaryan seems to be overplaying his part. His famous long monologue is there yet again, greeted by hearty claps and whistles throughout. Sunny Singh shines, is very controlled, and perhaps the best of the lot. The remaining cast is passable. In all, “PYAAR KA PUNCHNAMA 2” falls short of part one mainly due to lack of newness. However, it’s a decent entertainment option for the weekend, and is totally watchable.
