Abhimanyu aka Bubla Roy (Ayushmann Khurrana) is a horror-erotica fiction writer who is facing writer’s block after going through a major heartbreak. While his publisher is onto him asking him to come up with a new book, Abhi realizes it’s finally time to turn to a genre that he has been running from, a romantic novel. He decides to pen down his own love story as ‘Meri Pyaari Bindu‘. Bindu (Parineeti Chopra) is his childhood sweetheart and neighbour. The 5 year-olds explore various phases in each other’s lives including being in love with each other at one point. Careers drive the two apart and over time feelings keep shifting pace between the duo. After having a tough time in her career as a singer, Bindu rejects Abhi’s proposal for marriage and leaves him heartbroken. After years of not being in touch when Abhi and Bindu meet again, will love blossom again?
Parineeti Chopra as Bindu is given too many makeovers in this film. She is constantly on a fashion parade with her dressing speaking more than her character. She probably seems to have failed to catch the vibe of Bindu’s character and more often than not I saw Parineeti in the film, not Bindu. Ayushmann Khurrana as Bubla aka Abhimanyu is likeable but repetitive. His boy-next-door image has little to hold your attention and neither the chemistry with Parineeti works. He partly performs a narrator to the story too and that is slightly better than his act. Aparajita Auddy as Abhimanyu’s mother was one of my most favourite characters in the film. Her natural act as the mother is likeable enough.
Meri Pyaari Bindu should have been named as ‘Meri Friend-Zoner Bindu’. With no love and lack of emotions, A 2/5 for this film.
