Hunterrr - Movie Review

Verdict - "A guaranteed disappointment."

It's quite clear to root for an amusing and a campy guy like Hunter and the same goes to the movie, with a beguiling premise and an appealing trailer, Hunterrr seized an enormous attention among the audience with uncertainty and was expected to hugely entertain.

Mandar Ponkshe (Gulshan Devaiya) is a player and has an obsessive habit of wooing girls in his ordinary life which is certainly not perceived well by his well-wishers as they suggest him to be mature and get married soon. 

Soon after, in the pursuit of meeting an appropriate life-partner, he meets Tripti (Radhika Apte), a carefree and a perceptive girl who had few setbacks in the past with her relationships. Will their relation win through or does it fall flat?

Apparently, this movie is a character study which was made-up to introduce a unique personality. In this regard, the screenplay has to be sharp and captivating enough to make us engage in this person's routines and the things he does in his everyday life. But, unfortunately, this movie deteriorate in setting up characters and when it demands us to feel emotive in a particular scene, we don't really feel concerned and that's the major drawback of the movie, it was not compelling.

Also the contemporary back and forth storytelling aspect was a little infuriating to watch as it introduced the perplexity factor to the movie and strengthened the fact that the screenwriter had nothing more to tell, they're definitely few aspects in the movie which had nothing to do with the storyline involved and it was totally tiresome.

But, they're few bright spots in the movie, few comedic scenes were amusing at times, the climax felt a little heartwarming to watch and concluded the movie on a good note. Also, the director and his whole crew did a great job in setting up the ambiance, the production design was impressive especially when you're filming the movie in a different timeline.

Regardless, Gulshan Devaiya did a decent job with his character, it was t phenomenal and with the ample amount of time he was given on-screen, I didn't really felt bored watching him. Radhika Apte was always mesmerizing to watch, as she got that alluring look on her face which was conceivable.

Anyhow, to cut a long story short, Hunterrr is nothing what you expect it to be, it had the ability to tell a unique entertaining story which is  pretty scarce in our industry, but in all fairness, it never really turned out into a movie which was memorable and the one which changes the game. In a generic way, I can quote it as a "missed opportunity."

My Rating - 1.5/5
Grade - D+ (A hangover!)
