Pyaar Impossible - Movie Review

Pyaar Impossible is a film that attempts to prove that this increasingly materialistic world is just not that shallow when it comes to love

Director: Jugal Hansraj

Pyaar Impossible is this typical tale of a beauty and a geek. A story that spans across seven years. Abhay Sharma (Uday Chopra), a computer geek, tells us about his HUGE crush that he has on Aalisha (Priyanka Chopra) the college hottie. Due to different reasons, it takes him seven whole years to finally tell her, that he loves her. That's basically the story, the end of which you all can guess. Yupp. Happy ending.

The villain in the film is Siddharth aka Varun (Dino Morea). He is a tech-thief and the thorn between Abhay and Aalisha. How Abhay eventually fights to get both the girl and his lost-credit back, pretty much is the basic premise of the story. Not bad if you ask me. Typical of most of our Bollywood films.

But the painful part about the film is how this simple story has been executed. Give two boys full of ideas (read Uday Chopra and Jugal Hansraj) loads of money and ask them to make a film. Pyaar impossible is what you get. The film, loaded with glamour, and the best of eye candy, fails to capture the audience's interest. You are waiting for the next scene not because you're curious as to what happens next but because the scene you're watching bores you. You want it to pass.

However, the second half of the film is decent enough. You end up feeling not so bad to have shelled out your money on this one. The pace of the film too increases.

The movie has an amateurish feel to it. Some scenes are unnecessarily mundane. Seriously. It makes one wonder whether it is necessary turn off the audience to prove that Abhay and his father (Anupam Kher) lead dull lives? Yawn. The movie has only slightly brushed at the element of comedy. Otherwise it isn't hard to put up a straight face all through the film.

However, there are scenes that pull an emotional chord. Especially the ones where Aalisha questions Abhay about his first love. And the part where she realizes it was Abhay all along who had loved her.

The music of the film is great! Salim - Suleiman once again do not disappoint you. Basically that and the bright color scheme of the film is what helps you keeps your eyes open throughout the film.

Priyanka Chopra did not have much scope for acting in this film. Her character is supposed to be a hottie and she smoothly pulls it off. The sexy guitar tattoo on her nape gives an added sex appeal. She looks stunning in every frame of the film. Even the one where she becomes a geek. Hats off to Manish Malhotra and the whole team that has styled her.

Uday Chopra passes off effortlessly as the geek. But you easily get an overdose of him. He has worked hard, which is quite obvious but he still hasn't achieved what it takes to be an entertainer all through the film. Maybe if Uday concentrated on one thing at a time it would work…The whole juggling act of story, screenplay, dialogue and acting hasn't been handled very well by him.

Dino Morea as the venomous Varun looks like one of the Mafioso. The guy is bad but he still gets to have his way with the girls.

Anupam Kher as Abhay's father is okay. Jugal Hansraj's cameo is weird.

Go for the film if you're a person who fits in any of the following categories:-

One, eye-candy Priyanka is reason good enough for you  to watch a film.

Two, you'd rather take a tour of Singapore by watching a Bollywood movie shot there than actually going there.

Three, you're a geek who is hopelessly in love with a hottie.
