    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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
