Mandar Ponkshe is an ordinary guy, meaning there is hardly anything extraordinary about him. He is maybe 5'8" or 5'9". He dresses very un-dandily if there was such a term, wears a goatee to hide what could be considered a weak chin. Mandar does not attract attention because he wants to be seen as ordinary. But behind that facade is a story - of an interesting past life that has been led. His single-minded pursuit of girls, tall and short, stout or with a pout. He's funny unconventionally without meaning to be witty. His friends have lost all hope of him settling down, as they know that he doesn't plan to. And then suddenly he meets someone whom he starts liking... and falls in love with. What will happen now? Will she know about his past? Will he able to hide his Hunterrrr reputation? The story of a guy, who doesn't want to grow up!
Considering the low quality of sex comedies Bollywood churns out every year, Hunterrr is very refreshing to watch. Yes, it does objectify women but unlike the usual sex comedies, it is not stupid and low brow.
Gulshan Deviah is Mandar Ponkshe, a middle class guy in his mid 30s. He is not your usual Casanova. He as the title suggests is a hunterr who waits patiently for the kill. He is not afraid to talk abt it to his friends and admits that he is a sex addict. His life finally changes when he meets Tripti played by Radhika Apte and now he wants to stop everything and marry her. But can he ?? As they say old habits die hard.
What I liked the most about the film is its characters. Starting from Mandar to Tripti to his family and friends and even the women he has affairs with are real and believable. You feel you know these people when you see them on screen.
The writing for most part is extremely good. There are some hilarious dialogues and scenes that stand out especially in the 1st half. The 1st half is a roller coaster ride as we seen a young Mandar slowly turning into Hunterrr.
Its however the 2nd half that where the fun slowly disappears. We have certain sequences that don't add value to the film. Also, I felt the film is a bit long and should have been at least 15-20 mins short. Plus some of you might get lost when the story keeps travelling back and forth in time.
But why I recommend one watch Hunterrr is because of Gulshan Devaiah. Devaiah is fabulous as Mandar. Mandar's character is someone whom he should be hating as he keeps on playing with women throughout the film. But we start sympathizing for him is becausse of Devaiah's performance. He is brilliant and plays the role of an 18-19 yr old as well as a mid 30 yr old with ease.
Radhika Apte is superb as Tripti...a working women with a past and who is still in doubt about her future. The rest of the cast is perfect including Sai tamhankar who plays the naughty housewife.
Hunterrr could have been a brilliant film. But the writers and Director miss the bus. But its still worth a visit.
