The 2005 Hollywood comedy THE 40 YEAR-OLD VIRGIN has been fairly beloved particularly for its premise – a person determined to lose his virginity however isn’t in a position to do it as a consequence of sure circumstances. Bollywood has made its unofficial remake within the type of NAUGHTY @ 40 , starring Govinda. There have been many extra Bollywood movies the place this plot level is used as facet observe and for comedian reduction. VIRGIN BHANUPRIYA, starring Urvashi Rautela is predicated on this concept however it stands out as right here, the protagonist is feminine. So does VIRGIN BHANUPRIYA handle to impress and entertain? Or does it fail to entice? Let’s analyse.
VIRGIN BHANUPRIYA is the story of a woman making an attempt to lose her virginity. Bhanupriya (Urvashi Rautela) is a younger, conservative woman from Mumbai. Her dad and mom (Rajiv Gupta, Archana Puran Singh) are separated and are all the time combating with one another. She needs to fall in love however all her makes an attempt fail. She begins courting a person named Irrfan (Vikas Verma). He pretends to be an animal activist however in the future, he will get arrested for promoting stray canines as animals of worldwide breed. Bhanupriya’s good friend Rukul (Rumona Molla), in the meantime, is sort of promiscuous and she or he is making an attempt her finest to make sure that Bhanupriya will get laid. In one such try, she makes an attempt to hook Bhanupriya with the school nerd Rajiv (Sumit Gulati). Bhanupriya detests him however with no different possibility, she decides to have intercourse with him within the school library. Sadly, she will get caught red-handed and the matter reaches her dad and mom. Bhanupriya’s father realizes that Rajiv is wealthy and can hopefully get a authorities job in future. He realizes it’s a very good match. However, Bhanupriya stops them for taking issues additional. Rukul then introduces Bhanupriya to the stud Abhimanyu (Gautam Gulati). He’s known as Shartiya as he likes to wager and by no means loses. Bhanupriya falls in love with him and he too will get drawn to her. One day, when her father has gone out, Bhanupriya calls him dwelling. She tries to get bodily however Abhimanyu asks her to devour vodka, which he has introduced with him. As Bhanupriya is about to drink, Rajiv winds up at her home and warns her to not drink from the bottle because it’s countrymade liquor stuffed within the vodka bottle. An offended Bhanupriya kicks him out of the home. Shattered, she goes into the washroom and begins to cry. Her father in the meantime arrives dwelling and drinks from the identical bottle. He finishes the entire drink and collapses. What occurs subsequent types the remainder of the movie.
Ajay Lohan’s story has numerous potential and will have made for fun riot. But Ajay Lohan’s screenplay may be very weak. Ideally, the author ought to have gone all out and added some maddening moments because the story deserved that. Ajay Lohan’s dialogues are poor. A few one-liners increase laughs however that’s about it. Also, there have been numerous digs on the right-wing ideology and whereas it really works within the Goa hospital scene, in the remainder of the movie, it appears pressured. And a dig on standard actress Rakul Preet Singh is weird and added only for the heck of it.
Ajay Lohan’s route is poor. To give credit score the place it’s due, one can sit by means of from begin to end. It by no means will get insufferable. Sadly, that’s not sufficient and one wants much more within the movie to impress the audiences. Just a few moments are entertaining and humorous. The emotional moments fail to maneuver. The largest concern, nevertheless, is with the climax. The director raises rigidity ranges as Shartiya is presumed to have run away. However, Bhanupriya’s response after the reality comes out is unconvincing. Also, Rukul’s resolution on her being pregnant doesn’t lower ice.
VIRGIN BHANUPRIYA is 1 hour 50 minutes lengthy and begins off with the central plot with out losing any time. Some of the conditions within the movie are humorous, on paper, however doesn’t translate the identical approach on display. The observe of Rajiv is mediocre. Shartiya’s entry is heroic and one expects the movie to get higher. Sadly, that doesn’t actually occur. The movie ought to have been excessive on humour and likewise emotional moments and barring a joke or two, nothing actually works. The climax is haphazard and despite the fact that the twist is type of surprising, the impression isn’t made.
Talking of performances, Urvashi Rautela has a tremendous display presence. She manages to do effectively because the movie’s lead and no complaints on this regard. Rumona Molla provides a very good efficiency however sadly her observe ultimately does haywire. Gautam Gulati is a bit excessive however that works for the character. Rajiv Gupta hams and it’s unhappy to see such a gifted performer being decreased to a caricature right here. Archana Puran Singh too overreacts however comparatively, she is best. Niki Walia (Moon Aunty) is respectable. Brijendra Kala (cop) is reliable. Sumit Gulati performs as per his character. Others like Natasha Suri (Shonali), Pranav Verma (Jhanda), Amrit Arora (Pungi), Ashutosh Semiwal (Chukiya), Vikas Verma (Irrfan), Delnaaz Irani (Tarot Card Reader), Rajiv Nigam (Astrologer) and Babita Thakur (right-winger physician in Goa) are okay.
Amjad-Nadeem’s music is forgettable. ‘Beat Pe Thumka’ is the perfect of the lot because it’s catchy. ‘Dil Apni Haddon Se’ is shot effectively. ‘Kangna Vilayati’ is performed throughout the finish credit whereas the title observe is lacking. The recreated model of ‘Pucho Na Yaar Kya Hua’ is poor. Sanjoy Chowdhury’s background rating is unimpressive and has a day by day soap-feel. Same goes for Bhimrao Sapkale’s artwork route – the units look straight out of a TV present. Johny Lal’s cinematography is satisfactory. Moushmi Rana’s costumes are interesting particularly those worn by Urvashi, Rumona and Gautam Gulati. Akshay R Mohan’s modifying is ok.
On the entire, VIRGIN BHANUPRIYA rests on a good suggestion however is spoilt by its writing and remedy.
