Meri Pyaari Bindu will appeal to the romantic in you, but watching the movie will be a battle between the brain and the heart. Your brain and the movie’s heart, that is.
A light-hearted, freewheeling and charming love story with a twist-ending, It does not play by the usual emotional exigencies or the standard moral methods of the genre. Meri Pyaari Bindu invokes the past of Hindi cinema and its music to string together a genuinely modern urban love story. The film is none the worse for it.
The seamless mix of comedy, romance and drama is fantastic too. At two hours, the film feels like an absolute breeze. Meri Pyaari Bindu hits a lot of ticks on the check boxes. And that is the strength of this refreshing new romance.
