Murphy's Law of Relationships.....
1 December 2008 | by (Middle Earth) – See all my reviews

Pyar Ke Side Effects – There is something about this movie which makes it click. Attempting to pinpoint a lone factor will be a futile. But yes one can safely give the credit to the efforts deployed in pre-production and its effective translation onto the silver screen (the latter of course being the most challenging part).

¤ Rahul Bose doesn't need any praise for his performance. Spot on!

¤ Mallika Sherawat: I had little respect for this "bimbo starlet" and categorised her meteoric rise to her manipulative publicity and manipulative features (he! he!). Watching Pyar Ke Side Effects threw that notion out of the window. She fits into the character like hand in glove. And yes, if its anyone who gets/ should get/ deserves maximum mileage and opportunity laid on a platter owing to the success of the movie then its got to be MS.

¤ Sophiya:: No wonder why she is still confined to item girl roles, very puppetry acting. Seriously needs some acting lessons to add to her balance sheet (he! he! again).

¤ Jeeju-Sister:: Good performance and well balanced character roles. And the father-faining act is copied from "Jhankaar Beats", BTW.

¤ Ranvir Shorey: As far as I remember it was from this movie I started paying attention to Ranvir. If there is any other actor who would come on Top-Of-Mind-Recall when PYAR KE SIDE EFFECTS is uttered, then its gotta be Naanu.

¤ Sharat Saxena:: As usual, dependable.

¤ Jas Arora & Suchitra Pillai: Fit the bill effectively. It couldn't have got any better.

The never-ending battle between Delhi and Bombay is well presented. And of course the coffee. And the protagonist being a DJ… all these adds to say that the director is in sync with the times. The innovative ideas such as the comic book type animation and the protagonist connecting with the audience deserves brownie points.

Even during channel surfing if one happens to stumble upon Pyar Ke Side Effects, its difficult to resist stopping by and catching up with a few moments of the movie….. and needless to say, one would end up watching the rest.
