Meri Pyaari Bindu

Movie Review

My Rating: 7/10

vo afsāna jise anjām tak laanā na ho mumkin, 

use ik ḳhūb-sūrat moḌ de kar chhoḌnā achchhā

These beautiful lines by Saher Ludhianvi talk about some relations that are beautiful in their intent, but difficult to fit into the societal norms, and are usually the definition of it’s complicated relationship tags. Multiple movies in the past have tried to capture or even convey the essence of such relationships, but Meri Pyaari Bindu has probably done a better justice to the concept that many of those.

The overall essence of the movie is pure and non-intrusive, yet modern and contemporary. Especially the last 10 minutes left me wondering how beautiful the world would’ve been if all relationships were so honest and did not come with a baggage of expectations and responsibilities. But that I guess would be an ideal world.

Now, I’m not saying that the movie was superb, because of a combination of many reasons. Acting by Ayushmann Khurrana and Parineeti Chopra wasn’t amongst their best, lack of chemistry was pretty evident. Screenplay also had some gaping holes; at some points, story was just moving from one point to the next without a flow. And on top of that, most of the other characters were used more as props than anything else, which was little unfair.

Anyhow, I chose to watch Meri Pyaari Bindu this weekend, prioritising it over Sarkar 3, and I guess I made the right choice. If you are also looking for a light-hearted movie ith some soft relationships, this should be your first bet.
