Movie Review: Meri Pyaari Bindu | Meri Pyaari Bindu movie review – Bollywood News in Hindi

In recent years, many films have been named after hit songs. For example, Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na, Bachna Ae Haseeno, Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna, My Name is Anthony Goslavji, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani etc. Meri Pyaari Bindu, the hit song from the old film Padosan, released in theaters this week. Will Meri Pyaari Bindu be as loveable as its title or will it get resistance from the audience, let’s review!

Meri Pyaari Bindu is essentially a love story between two lovers and the ups and downs in their lives. The film begins with novelist Abhimanyu Roy aka Bubla (Ayushmann Khurrana) attempting suicide as he is unable to forget the girl he loved selflessly. And that girl is the independent, lively, spirited Bindu Sankaranarayanan (Parineeti Chopra), who, despite living life on her own terms, leaves a lot of things unfinished in life. Since Abhimanyu has been living away from his parents for a long time, his parents falsify his divorce and take him back to their home in Kolkata. Though he is very angry with his parents for this, his childhood memories are revived at their home, where he spent his childhood and he remembers that his childhood neighbor Bindu gave him such a gift. What he claimed would change his life forever. From here the film goes into a flashback and Abhimanyu does all he can for Bindu and does all he can to make her happy. This helps Bindu realize that her dream is to become a singer and release an album of her own or need a shoulder to cry on which didn’t go in her favour. One day, when her mother dies due to her father’s drunk driving, she is broken. And this is where she decides to move to Australia, the news that comes as a surprise to everyone, even Abhimanyu, who turns out to be a banker for her by sacrificing his writing career. Will Bindu ever return to India and re-enter Abhimanyu’s life, what will happen between the two’s untold love story, will Bindu ever be able to forgive her father, who was responsible for her mother’s death, and finally Abhimanyu’s beloved What ultimately happens to Bindu’ is all that will be known by watching the rest of the film.

Even though an attempt was made to make the promos of Meri Pyaari Bindu unique, the sad part was that those promos only confused the audience about the plot of the film. This film, on the other hand, left the audience confused. The film’s story and screenplay (Supratim Sengupta) are very confusing and complicated, especially in the forcefully drawn second half. The erratic time-frames shown in the film add to the already messy plot. Though the film has some hilarious moments too, the dialogues (Supratim Sengupta, Soumik Sen) are spot on as one-liners.

Akshay Roy, who garnered accolades as an assistant director in films like The Namesake, Water and Vanity Fair, made his directorial debut with Meri Pyaari Bindu. Though his direction is strictly fine, it still lacks a tight screenplay, which hinders his direction. Despite all the flaws in the film, Akshay Roy manages to make his way through the film. The first half of the film is interesting, upbeat and thrilling which will be instantly liked by everyone. The pace of the first half of the film is fast and in sync with today’s times, and the audience will feel connected to the pace of the film. The second half of the film collapses like a deck of cards.

These are the moments that are easily squeezed into the film. Take for example the scene where Parineeti marries after all the previous events. This is something where the audience can’t digest the fact that after cheating on several boys in the past, getting married keeping track of past track records. Second, the aspect of making composite tape in film seems to have been thrown away for convenience, considering that composite tape does not form an integral part of the film in any way. One can easily say that the makers of the film used a ‘mixed tape’ of retro songs, perhaps due to the lack of effective original music in the film. Also, the film is littered with unnecessary scenes that seem to be forced into the film, and those are when Parineeti is on the hunt for a home and meaninglessly drags the climax of the film. Neither the wishes of the main characters of the film are fulfilled, even the message that the film was trying to convey, remains cryptic. Overall, the film highlights friendship more than love and leans more towards friendship.

As the title of the film Meri Pyaari Bindu suggests, the film is entirely related to Parineeti Chopra. After doing her last film Kill Dil (also cameo in Dishoom), Parineeti Chopra delivered a powerful performance in Meri Pyaari Bindu. Like always in this film too she looks lively, agile and energetic and plays her character with ease and ease. It would not be wrong to say that he is the soul of the film. On the other hand, Ayushmann Khurrana has delivered a decent performance in the film as was expected of him. Rest of the cast (Prakash Belavadi, Rajatwa Dutta, Aparajit Adhya, Kharaj Mukherjee) have played their part well.

Both, the music and the background score (Sachin-Jigar) are very average. The film’s popular track ‘Harayan Main Dil Haarayan’ is missing from the film. The cinematography (Tushar Kanti Ray) of the film is also average. The film’s editing (Shwetha Venkat Mathew) definitely needs to be sharper and tighter, especially towards the second half. It would have been in the interest of the film to remove some unwanted scenes.

Overall, Meri Pyaari Bindu is a must watch film because of its deceptiveness. The film will prove to be average at the box office. disappointing.
