Pyaar Impossible

Before I give my comments on this film, I wanted to let you all know that I have signed up for the Post A Week Pledge with WordPress. I will post at least once a week (two or three times if you are lucky though ;). I just thought it might be fun to have this goal to work towards and hopefully it will keep me blogging.

Today I finished a few major work things and decided to treat myself to a Bollywood. I wanted a cute movie I had not watched before so I picked Pyaar Impossible (Impossible Love). I downloaded this when it first came out and it just sat on my hard drive collecting cyber-dust. I grabbed some subtitles, dusted it off and gave it a try.

I immediately liked the character of Abhay (Uday Chopra). He had this super nerdy inner monologue going on that immediately endears him to the audience. He is pretty much is a super nerd, who is in love with the most beautiful girl in his university, Alisha (Priyanka Chopra). He saves her life one night but she never knew it was him. Her dad took her out of school the next day and he did not see her again for seven years.

While I liked the character of Abhay, I really did not like this movie for the first 30 minutes. There is this slimy guy (Dino Morea) who steals his life’s work. And Alisha is a divorced mother too busy to notice what is going on around her and has a super bratty little girl, Tania. She is always telling her daughter how naughty she is but does nothing about it. Drove me crazy. Tania does change (kind of) and grows on you. Alisha comes down from way up there and slows down to notice the great guy in her life. And slimy guy, well he is very “amused” by Thai traditions :).

The movie was cute but only average in my books. The music was good though and I can recommend checking out “You and Me” and “Pyaar Impossible“. That’s it for tonight, but I hope this weekend has another film in store for me. Wonder what it will be….
