Love stories are such, some end happily while others have an abrupt heartbreaking end. And one such story is this Akshay Roy’s film ‘Meri Pyaari Bindu‘ which portrays a love story that remains unfinished till the end but definitely leaves a smile on our faces.
Ayushmann Khurrana plays Abhimanyu Roy, a very popular horror stories writer, who’s now come down to his hometown Calcutta in on of his unproductive phase of life. Since the last three years, he hasn’t been able to pen down a word. It’s now when he sits to type out his first ever love story. This is when Parineeti Chopra enters as Bindu, an aspiring singer. Abhi and Bindu are the childhood sweethearts who’ve grown up together in each other’s friendship, mischief and strong affection for one another. As time flies, they don’t realize how their friendship blossoms into love. And like life has it’s own pros and cons, there are several instances when they separate from each other only to return back with utmost love for each other. Didn’t you know not all love stories have a happy ending? But didn’t you also know that unhappy endings makes us understand reality even better?
There’s no single scene where you can take your eyes off Ayushmann and Parineeti’s stunning chemistry in the movie. We’re sure the two bonded over so well during the movie, that their equation is so visibly there in the movie. Ayushmann essays the role of a ‘no-tantrum’ guy so well, who’s crazy about Bindu and also is efficient at showing the writer’s side in the film. This movie is for sure going to be Parineeti’s best performance till date and there’s no doubts about that. The very next pair that grabs attention after Abhi and Bindu are Abhi’s on screen parents played by Rajatava Dutta and Aparajita Adhya.

Suprotim Sengupta’s screenplay comes around as the next mantra of success. It sure is close-knit but doesn’t suffocate. Akshay Roy’s directorial debut talks about just how wonderful of a storyteller he is. Roy has assisted Farhan Akhtar and Mira Nair in the past, which says quite much of his learnings. It’s beautiful to watch how ever loss is embraced with a sense of contentment in the film.

Talking about the music, Sachin-Jigar has done a splendid job with bringing out the right mood to the songs, be it separation or other twists and turns. Tushar Kanti Roy’s cinematography concentrates on capturing the meaningful moments and not just mere visuals; which makes it all the more effective.

You should really catch up with your love ones on this weekend and watch this movie and feel all the more loved.
