Pyaar Ke Side Effects is a fun rom-com. It is modern, lighthearted and comic in its story and presentation, and that makes it thoroughly entertaining. The film is not as much about love as it is about relationships between young and modern people in an urban "new" India. This depiction is well done. Frankly speaking, had this film been made in Hollywood, it probably would not have been taken very seriously since that's what audiences there are most used to seeing, but as an Indian movie, it was fun stuff worth watching with friends as it's different from anything one uses to associate with Hindi movies. The film stars Rahul Bose in a fine performance as a troubled thirty year-old man who does not really know how to deal with his relationship with a young woman played by Mallika Sherawat who insists on marriage while he is not ready yet to take such responsibility. Sherawat is quite natural in a role that is nothing great but quite likable. Other cast members do well. One of the aspects I did not like in this movie was the narration. I did not like the way Bose's character often started narrating his thoughts and the proceedings in the middle of a scene and the other characters were made kind of deaf, unaware of his voiced dialogues. A simple narration of voice over would be more effective. Anyway, if one's speaking of dialogues, then I must say they were quite authentic in this one. To sum it up, Pyaar Ke Side Effects is an enjoyable and highly watchable movie best watched by young couples and friends.
