The writing is unerring when it comes to the lads, but goes off track with the lasses. Their acts are good, but distressingly single-tone.

4

To be fair, Pyaar Ka Punchnama is half-way funny but soon descends into a running commentary on why relationships with women are impossible and eventually wends its way to a very implausible end. It could have definitely done with some editing. If it were crisper, with more thought put into its script, situations and dialogue, Pyaar Ka Punchnama would have made the cut.

The film had promise and does have a few funny sequences. But by and large, it's a case of promises unfulfilled.

The only problem with PKP is its running time. The second half seems never-ending, sappy and pleading for sympathy. The MCPs probably don’t realise that women don’t think much of them and PKP won’t do much to change that. (Now you know this review is written by a woman.)

...has a single-point plan of engaging and amusing the spectators by telling a story which is unusual, yet relevant. It's radiantly good cinema that needs to be lauded and encouraged. Strongly recommended, go for it!

...is inconsistent and lacks 'punch'.

Pyaar Ka Punchnama works only in parts. Would manage to entice only those people who have vendetta against women

To say that Pyaar Ka Punchnama relies heavily on the stereotyping women would be stating the obvious in an understated manner. But you are here; you are watching the film, might as well give in. And you see yourself in a land of puppies and bitches. Women are the most unreasonable, flaky, demanding, ruthlessly selfish kind of human beings.

4

For a good, consistently witty, relationship-oriented film told from the male perspective, I’d go with Saket Chowdhury’s Pyaar Ke Side Effects. But it’s evident that Pyaar Ka Punchnama is on its way to becoming the love bible for young men—however problematic that might be for some.

    MY REVIEW: New Age Heartfelt Buddy Comedy!!

    Pyaar Ka Punchnama. Means the funeral of love. Actually it's a biased movie which only shows that the how few girls without heart make friends and turn them into boy friends (read puppets!!) but all this is showcased with such a sweet comic timing, the lingo that real people use in real world, amazing performances and a fantastic back ground score. All actors are fresh faces but they play their characters with panache. Choudhary, Rajat, Neha all these names remain with you long after the movie ends. But here show stealer is the character Liquid or Nishant played by new bee Divyendu. He gets all meaty and funny dialogs and delivers them with a funny face. He even gets the most emotional scenes, watch him when he breaks down in second half, you won't be able to stop your tears. Movie has all ingredients to strike a chord with today's youth and will go down in history as cult movie and some sort of Geeta for boys getting lost in the name of love.
