Pyaar Impossible

Medium : Hindi
Starring : Uday Chopra, Priyanka Chopra, Dino Morea, Anupam Kher

Direction : Jugal Hansraj

Music : Salim-Sulaiman

Mega production - distribution banner, Yash Raj Films had come up with their first project in the new year, 'Pyaar Impossible' having Uday Chopra and Priyanka Chopra in the lead roles. Uday is not a big competitor for the front runners among the bollywood stars. But he has been notable throu
gh films like 'Mohabbatein' and 'Dhoom' series. Former miss world, Priyanka Chopra, who got a good last year through films like 'Kaminey', 'Whats Your Rashee' etc is also one of the leading artists in the hindi film industry these days. The hero himself had written the script and Jugal Hansraj, who had acted in many films and who is also the director of 'Road Side Romeo' is the director of 'Pyaar Impossible'.

The film begins in the University of California, where Abhay (Uday Chopra) and Alisha (Priyanka Chopra) studied. He likes the girl. He was unable to express the love as he thinks that he is an under-rated guy as far as glamor and fashion is concerne
d. After his college days, he reached India. During these 7 years, he is still having Alisha in his mind. He has developed a computer operating system these days and the client (Dino Morea) who was willing to buy his software, cheated him and left the country. He reached Singapore in search of the villain. There he meets Alisha. He came to know that she is a divorced mother now and had got a daughter. He reaches her home as the care taker of her daughter. How he wins her love and what happens to the person who had cheated him is shown in the rest portions.

Uday Chopra had got a character that suits his body language. Priyanka Chopra is excellent in the role of Alisha. Her presentation in few occasions resembles a hollwood style also. Though it is a small role, the father's role has also been neatly handled by Anupam Kher. The way in which the hero convincing the heroine regarding the importance of beauty and good looking through a song is shown well. Salim-Sulaiman gave some peppy numbers and a good bg score. Cinematographer Santhosh Thundiyil ('Krish', 'Kuch Kuch Hota Hai', 'Kaal', 'Palungu' fame) had given some colorful visuals. Director Jugal H
ansraj, had tried to exploit the maximum performance from the leading artists in the movie.

The theme of this film had got the flavor of a malayalam film, 'Kilukkampetti' by Shaji Kailas almost 18years ago, where the hero (Jayaram), reaches the house of his lover (Suchitra Krishnamoorthy) as a servant and tries to impress the kid (Baby Shyamili). In some scenes, inspiration of Kamalhassan's film 'Avvai Shanmughi' is also there.

There should have been some difference in costumes and make up for the hero and heroine in a gap of seven years. The hero meets the heroine accidentally in abroad, can be treated as a cinematic coincidence. The revenge episode happens in the climax area only, likewise the college episode happens in the beginning area only, they should have been discussed in more scenes.

'Pyaar Impossible' is not a boring movie; here who have got the charming Priyanka Chopra's performance as the highlight.

Rating : 7 / 10
