Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2 - Movie Review

Verdict - "A comical blast!"

When was the last time that movie fans actually urged for a sequel? It only happens for few movies in very rare instances. And Pyaar Ka Punchnama is one of the few movies that received a lot of attention and popularity among the 18-30 age demographic right after its release back in 2011. I often see a lot of people pulling out references from the movie, posting a bunch of internet memes and I've been excited about the sequel soon after its announcement and was a little worried after watching the theatrical trailer because I'm in the minority of people who wanted to see Liquid (Divyendu Sharma) back to do another diverse role. But, finally after its release I watched the movie with a bunch of my friends and let me tell you that's the best way to watch this movie.

The storyline for Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2 was a big throwback and felt very reminiscent to its prequel where a group of three friends fall in love with three beautiful girls and then few months later, their relationships come to a grueling state where problems become a big concern that finally unlocks the door for a breakup.

Even with a tried premise and storyline, the writers, and director, Luv Ranjan constructed an entertaining movie with a series of jokes throughout the first half where I busted out laughing for every single scene. It never decelerated it's momentum for a minute and enthralled me to the most. And the most commendable part about the first half is that it never neglected the storyline and altered the movie into a silly nonsensical entertainer.

But the movie certainly miscarried the celerity going into the second half where the entertaining aspect dried out a bit and it truly felt a little dismal and it felt quite long and would've been trimmed for at least twenty minutes. I have no complaints about the performances from the complete cast and I have to mention about Kartik Aaryan a little, the man gives out his best every single time and he never gets any other major opportunities in other films. I wonder why? That's another topic for another day!

Altogether, Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2 delivered everything that I ever expected. It was funny and compelling at the same time that made every single person in my theatre laugh-out-loud and enjoy the movie for the most part. Is it better than the first part? Absolutely not! But, I had a fantastic time with this movie. Watch it with your friends, I bet you will have no regrets.

My Rating - 3.25/5
Grade - B (Worth a watch!)
