Before I start, पंचनामा - Punchnaama means, "The report submitted to (by) the (Sar)Panch" in the village. Basically the "Post-Mortem" report of the man who has died. Following which it is official that the person is dead.
प्यार का पंचनामा - Literally means - The PostMortem of Love...
And the movie.. is absolutely Fantastic.
People may call it crass, violent intent, bad language - whatever, I enjoyed the movie like no other. I was already excited about writing a review on my blog, the moment, the interval flashed on the screen.
The storyline borders on the edges of reality. The screenplay is extremely sanely handled, something that I haven't been able to see in any of the recent Hindi releases. The language is original. This is what guys talk. Period.
I especially loved three scenes in the movie, the first scene where Liquid vents his frustration on his project manager. Second scene is "of-course" Dimaag ki Dahi scene and the Third is my favorite - the last scene where Rajat decides to call it quits to the relationship and walks out with his baggage, leaving his girl friend crying.
I just loved that scene. For all the manipulation that the woman did, I thought she perfectly deserved it. :) ... The more women do this, the more heartbroken in the end they are. Folks who argue that the movie was miso-gynist, tell me which one of the characters was stereo-typed or bad.
Rajat is a nice guy, looking out for a nice girl. Any mistake ?
Vikrant is a dude, who is also a nice guy.
And of course, Liquid is simply frustrated nice guy.
I term all the three guys as nice because they do not go after another girl when they are actually seeing someone. Atleast in the movie.
Note !!! Three nice guys ?? What about the women ?
They are three nice women as well. They are infact good women.
Neha wants commitment or rather "Joru ki Ghulaami"
Riya wants her space, and does not like interference.
Charu just wants a buddy for everything except a physical relationship. For that she has her boyfriend.
I don't blame the three women as well. There is absolutely nothing wrong in the women as well. We meet such women in our everyday lives. So who is to be blamed here ? The men or the women ? This article of mine got a lot of negative comments, but I still stand by my statements. Nice women are extinct. And watch out women, the nice guys are becoming extinct as well. :)
Luv Ka The End - As crappy as a movie can ever be. It's basically a Bollywood rehashed version of "John Tucker Must Die". Not worth a watch at all. Wasted 2 hours. :( :(
Chalo Dilli - was entertaining. It was boring in patches, but overall worth a watch. I loved the part, where without giving the names of the protagonists till almost the end of the movie, the director made us feel one with the characters. "Bhaai Sahab" and "Behenji" are gonna be there for some time now.
P.S :- facing a blogger's block. Will start posting more regularly. For sure.
