Meri Pyaari Bindu Review

Meri Pyaari Bindu is all about a story in itself. The movie shows the narrative of Bindu played by Parineeti Chopra and Ayushmann Khurrana’s character Abhimanyu’s love story. They tried to amuse the audience over to the good old mixed tapes days with all the evolving technology which hadn’t infused with our lives to kids climbing trees to meet their best friends or just even relax. The sequence of the film keeps on moving from the present and the past.

Now, Abhimanyu 'Bubla' Roy is a lucrative pulp fiction writer who is struggling with writer’s block, so he decides to visit his parent’s house back in Kolkata. As he reaches his hometown, Bubla goes on a nostalgic trip which had his childhood crush, Bindu Shankarnarayanan whom he has never been able to get over.

The audience will get to see Abhimanyu and Bindu’s relationship over the years from their school days, college football matches and throughout their adulthood all in the flashbacks. The audience will get to see Bindu overbearing Abhimanyu and used him to get things done from a job to wanting a place to stay. This is one of the reasons behind Abhimanyu Roy’s doormat behavior when he gets into any relationship, as when he gets any hope with Bindu, she crumbles him all over again.

On the other hand, Abhimanyu also does not mind Bindu’s behavior. Abhimanyu treats other’s with his rude and unkind behavior, but with Bindu, he is just like those penguin garbage bins holding the ‘Use Me’ sign.

With this unsteady love story written by Suprotim Sengupta did not seems to take a break. Abhimanyu and Bindu at times seemed to be made for each other, but then towards the end audience too will get disappointed with Parineeti’s character, Bindu. Meri Pyaari Bindu does not spare anything from the characters changing from the short denim to wearing a traditional saree in the end after getting married. Seems like Aditya Chopra and Ayushamann Khurrana did not work too hard when it comes to the story writing because the main aim was to evoke and take the audience on a nostalgic trip, but instead they went back into the cliché which is available in every Bollywood romance guidebook.

The Verdict

The 199 minutes film, just seemed like a drag and with the ceaseless back and forth with past and present, elements in the film got even more dreary and monotonous.
