Kyunki Maa bhi kabhi Kunwari thi

This is yet another movie talk. The one on the radar is 'Pyaar ka Punchnama 2'.

Okay, it was one horrible night where I was literally writhing in pain. And I took some pain-killers and while waiting for the medicine to take effect, I decided to check out an Indian movie since it was ages I watched one. The last Indian one I saw 'PK'. I intended to watch 'Bangalore Days' on the recommendation of a friend.  But, somehow I couldn't find the link easily and instead ended up watching 'Pyaar ka Punchnama 2'. 

Boy, was I glad I did! The movie had me glued to the screen from the start to the finish. It was such a joyride and an absolute treat to watch these newcomers infuse such energy and life into their characters. They are good looking and they can definitely act. Good cast, direction and editing. Great team-effort on the whole! 

Sure there were some minor misses. Like the music wasn't all that great and the movie was pretty much one-sided in perspective. Basically, a punch to all women out there. The only ones who missed the literary boxing punches were the boy's Mummies. Thank God for small mercies. 

The ending conclusion of the movie was a corny - 'Sirf maa ka pyaar sacha hota hai' (Aansoo!)

C'Mon, Boys! Time to mature up. Baap ka pyaar sacha nahi hota hai kya? And going by their own one-sided logic of the movie and in true Ekta Kapoor ishytle aur dhun - 'Devi maa bhi kabhi ek chaalo kunwari thi!' 

It's a good Bromance comedy movie. Definitely no classic like 'Dil Chahta Hai' which was way more sophisticated and mature/grown-up in outlook. But still, it's definitely watchable. Think of it as a boy's version of a chick-flick.
