Storyline

Fed up with the lack of critical appreciation despite being a successful writer, Abhimanyu Roy (Ayushmann Khurrana) returns to his roots in Kolkata to write more meaningful literature and decides on an old-fashioned love story - which was now, 3 years in the making. This writer's block is called Bindu (Parineeti Chopra). How do you contain this unpredictable, crazy, restless, larger than life, live wire in the pages of a book? As Abhi says ''You know when a song comes on and you just have to dance? Bindu was that song. That silly infectious joyful tune you couldn't get out of your head - even if you wanted to." So where should he begin? Where should he end? But when Abhi stumbles across an old audio cassette of their favorite playlist, it sends Abhi down memory lane - and as he waltzes in and out of his past and present through the songs in the mixed tape, he finally faces reality and reconnects with his roots, with his family and his novel starts writing itself. Of course, life in ... Written by Official source

Poignant !!
16 May 2017 | by mactautocratSee all my reviews

It's a welcome breather from the drudgery of the typical north Indian love stories flushed with clichéd wedding scenes, conventional college boy meets girl plots and loud music force fitted with some Desi rap. The movie marvelously captures the magic of Kolkata through the eyes of Abhimanyu, the warmth of a close knit neighbourhood , the intimacy and casual flirtation among friends typified by the dumb charades scene and the liberal home dynamics where talking about boyfriends or sex for that matter doesn't come attached with a taboo. The plot continues to enthrall now collecting the best moments of a Mumbai life through a series of scenes starting with a Nariman point stroll, late night ruminations sitting at the marine drive with feet dangling precariously over the odd shaped stones, a multicultural bachelor pad fraught with late night pranks on a stunning balcony and an adorable proposal on the cosy streets of Colaba. And finally the climax where Abhimanyu is content with the amazing time spent with this incredible Bengalan and taking the best part of the relationship in his stride before moving on, unlike the vast majority of the audience who take Bindu's rejection of his proposal as a personal insult and a sign of defeat venting out their frustrations in the reviews.
