Storyline

Twenty-something Michael Pinto has grown up in a small Goan village, believing everyone in the world to be simple, kind and honest, just like him. His world revolves around a doting mother, a passion for music and the memories of a childhood friend, Sameer, who left Goa for Mumbai many years ago and hasn't replied to his frequent letters ever since. Pinto's talent for music is only matched by his knack for finding trouble in the unlikeliest of places often resulting in the most outlandish and hilarious situations. When Pinto's idyllic world is shattered by the sudden demise of his mother he decides to head to Mumbai in search of the only friend he knows. Will Pinto find Sameer or will trouble find him first? Will Pinto and his crazy antics survive the big bad city or more importantly, will Mumbai survive a phenomenon called Pinto? Written by Anonymous

A dumb movie where the main character "pinto" is poor man's forrest gump
13 June 2015 | by kalpa-778-854780See all my reviews

Viewers Beware. If you are thinking about watching this movie. Don't think twice. Just don't watch it. The movie has a dumb plot supported by juvenile humor which can lead to serious headache. Director Raghav Dharr can be easily termed as a wannabe director who takes audiences patience for granted. A waste of many talented actors like Prateik, Kalki, and Divya, My friend pinto is a chaotic nonsense which runs for almost 2hrs and feels like 5hrs when watched. Content wise its a C grade movie with just B grade names associated with it. Don't know why a director like Sanjay Leela Bhansali invested in a crap like this. Colossal waste of talent,time and money, My friend pinto is one of the worst comedies to be made in Bollywood.
