Pyaar Impossible - Movie Review

Three On Ten
By Naresh Kumar Deoshi

Three words. Just three words. Sometimes it takes years to say those three words to someone special you love. And if you happen to be a bashful bespectacled geek that the protagonist of Pyaar Impossible is, and that someone special is a stunner on whom every next guy swoons, those three words might never find an expression and be buried deep within the heart with the epitaph reading: ‘Pyaar Impossible’.

But every geek has its day. Abhay (Uday Chopra) sure has his. A techie whiz-kid in Ankert University, California, he silently loves the most beautiful girl on campus, Alisha (Priyanka Chopra), but she isn’t even aware that he exists. To top it, the gutless geek can’t bring himself about to tell his feelings to Alisha, even after saving her from drowning.

Bad luck favours the cowards, and Alisha leaves her college mid-way while Abhay is left nursing his aching heart.

Seven years later, Abhay, still a socially challenged, gauche geek and still in love with Alisha, is on the trail of a swindler (Dino Morea) who stole an ingenious software programme from him to sell it to a company in Singapore. It’s on this trail that Abhay again bumps into his first love, Alisha, who is now a single divorced working mother with a ‘Tina the menace’ daughter, every nanny’s worst nightmare.

A misunderstanding lands Abhay the job of Tina’s nanny while Alisha continues to be blissfully unaware that he is the same guy who saved her life once. Things complicate further when Varun (Dino), the swindler, tries to woo Alisha, and succeeds to some extent.

Will Abhay turn out to be a loser again or will he finally say those three difficult words to Alisha? Will Alisha ever get to know who he really is? Will Varun walk away with the millions, and Alisha in the bargain? Impossible is nothing.

On paper, ‘Pyaar Impossible’ sounds like a breezy, perky love story, but when translated on celluloid, it’s far from it. The ennui of Abhay’s drab life is presented on the screen with no less dullness, and his capers with Tina the menace (Sofia Malmdern), instead of entertaining, lull one to slumberous winks.

With the script liberally holed with screenwriting blunders and an overwhelming absence of chemistry between Uday and Priyanka, ‘PI’ turns out to be a flimsy, wishy-washy romantic saga that unspools to its ludicrous climax like a lovebird on a wing and a prayer.

Uday Chopra, after a rather forgettable career as an actor, fails to make much mark except show a few fine flashes of acting here and there in his last shot at stardom. The lad has penned the story and even produced the film. Sorry to say that his talent as a writer doesn’t exceed the one as an actor.


Priyanka Chopra’s Alisha has the pizzazz and sass of an upwardly mobile, fashion conscious, divorcee who’s unsure which way her feelings would careen. Full credit to the actress for a notable performance that even has a dash of superficiality suited to such a character. Dino Morea as the wily fiddler and Anupam Kher as the admonishing dad of Abhay have brief roles which they play well enough.

Director Jugal Hansraj manages to cobble together a few charged up moments in the film. Note that sequence when Abhay is about to bare his heart to Alisha before Varun walks in; or that scene when Abhay faces up to Varun in a cafe. But the young director is unable to build enough steam, say momentum, in the story to keep the viewers glued throughout the entire course of the film’s running time.

The music, doubtlessly, is rocking, but how I wish I could say the same about the film. The worst is the amateurishly penned climax and Alisha’s confession preceding it. It’s so farcical that you want to shout out what Priyanka says in a dialogue in the film: ‘Shut the f..f..front door!’
