Pyar Ka Panchnama

Punchnama is a Hindi word which means Postmortem report. Hence, Pyaar ka Punchnama would mean Postmortem of Love. But it is a Botched up Postmortem report. It is Based on the Premise that all relationships are doomed to fail & the reason for failure in one word is ‘Women’. As per the movie the relationships fail because women are dominating, over-possessive, chatter boxes & Manipulating!! Poor guys keep on taking all the nonsense from the Ladies until they can’t bear it any more & that’s when the relationship ends.

It is the story of 3 friends Rajat (Kartik), Chaudhary (Raayo) and Liquid (Divyendu) who are foot loose & fancy free till they meet their lady loves. Rajat meets Neha who is over possessive & clingy, Liquid meets Charu who is manipulative & uses him to run errands for her & Chaudhary meets Ria who is still not over her ex. Towards the end of the film Rajat breaks into a long monologue of how guys suffer at the hands of females which is supposed to be very hilarious but only if you can find humor in such depravity & MCPness…to me it looked like typical male behavior: lay all the blame on women..The 1st time Adam got a chance he laid all the blame on Eve…looks like things have not changed much since those times!!

This movie could have been witty & fun if it had taken a balanced look at relationships n why they end. Both genders have their quirks which contributes towards the difficulties in relationship. To take a lopsided view is foolish & retarded.

P.S.: My Lawyer friend Vijay tells me that ‘Panchnama is the first notings that are made at the scene of a crime by the Police officer and witnessed by Panchas, i.e., eye witnesses.’ but oh well the rest of the review stands good all the same!!!

    I would say there are 10% such women in this world..Not all the women are like that..This movie is about women who use men…

    I only opened this post to correct your meaning of punchnama, and then I read your postscript. Once again I get to blame a woman for spoiling my fun. Hurray!

    For me, this was one of the worst movies I’ve ever seen …. downright pathetic.
    Right from the plot, to the cast, direction, cinematography, dialogues/script, just didn’t connect.
