Storyline

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!

Trivia

The original title (working title of the movie) was VAASU, which is Mumbai slang for someone that is always in the scent of women. It was changed to HUNTERRR to appeal to a pan-India audience. That is the term used in the film consistently and HUNTERRR remains only the title finding no mention at all in any dialogs.

A lot of industry experts had felt the original title was a better choice since it would go towards creating a new vocabulary term similar to how "waat lag gayi" from the MUNNABHAI series has been now adopted into conversational Hindustani/Hindi however for easier identification HUNTERRR was retained.

A Delicious Sex-Comedy with a Terrific Gulshan Devaiya!
26 March 2015 | by namashi_1See all my reviews

Hashvardhan Kulkarni's 'Hunterrr' is raunchy, dirty yet irresistible. This one's A Delicious Sex-Comedy, that offers laugh & also emotional depth. Its daringly different & Gulshan Devaiya is simply terrific in the central role.

'Hunterrr' Synopsis: A sex addict recalls his lustful past before he plans to marry a women, who offers him love, rather than lust.

'Hunterrr' works because the Writing is mostly strong. Kulkarni's Screenplay, which shifts back and forth, exploring the life of its extremely horny Protagonist, is enjoyable! The best bits come-up in the protagonist's past, be it his escapades with a feisty married women or with his college girlfriend. Yes, the romantic-track, which is the most prominent aspect of the story, also works, but at times, the humor falters. But overall, Kulkarni's Screenplay is unabashedly sleazy & some of the dialogue, are priceless!

Kulkarni's Direction is pretty good. Cinematography is picture-perfect. Editing is fine, although the film is a bit too lengthy (142-minutes). Some trimming was needed. Music by Khamosh Shah is in sync with the film's mood.

Performance-Wise: Gulshan Devaiya is the life of 'Hunterr'. The talented actor enacts the sex-addict with remarkable conviction. He makes a perverted character relatable rather than repulsive, all thanks to his superlative portrayal. This is a knock-out performance, in every level. Radhika Apte is wonderful, yet again! What a performer! Sai Tamhankar is extra-ordinary & despite limited screen-time, she brings a fabulous color to her character. Others lend excellent support.

On the whole, 'Hunterrr' is a joyride! Go, have fun!
