Meri Pyari Bindu Is Tedium Wrapped In Retro Sounds By Subhash K Jha Movie Review

13 May 2017 1:01 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Starring: Ayushmann Khurrana, Parineeti Chopra

Directed by Akshay Roy

Sometimes a debutant director shows a spark that never quite lights up the screen. God knows, Akshay Roy displays a keen eye for Kolkata’s eccentricities: the trams and the fast-food lanes, the Durga idol silhouetting the hero’s suicide attempt, the loud boisterous parents of the Bengali protagonist Abhi….so called, so that the theme song of his love story could be ‘Abhi na jao chod kar ke dil abhi bhara nahin.’

Abhi….get it?

There is a lot to ‘get’ in Meri Pyari Bindu including its corny cross references to films about unrequited love like Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and Nikhil Advani’s Katti Batti. Then there us film’s Padosan-inspired title. The film’s most embarrassing sequence has Abhi’s parents enacting the Kishore Kumar song in a car park.

Cringe late. Parineeti Chopra »
