Ratings:1.5/5 Reviewer:Rajeev Masand Site:IBNLive

Disguised as a light-hearted comedy, Pyaar Ka Punchnama is such a misogynistic film that you can’t help but wonder if it was made by someone who’s had his heart brutally stamped on by a woman.Pyaar Ka Punchnama is positioned as a comic take on real urban relationships, but the jokes are mostly lame, and the conflicts so exaggerated that it doesn’t work on any level. At best, Divyendu Sharma gets a few laughs out of you in the early scenes, but it’s not enough to put yourself through the misery of enduring this interminably long film.I’m going with one-and-a-half out of five for director Luv Ranjan’s Pyaar Ka Punchnama. It’s about as much fun as walking on broken glass.

PYAAR KA PUNCHNAMA packs a solid punch, but you can’t overlook the hiccups in this journey as well. Firstly, it takes a really long time to reach the finale. The story stagnates in the middle of the second hour. Had the writer-director used restraint by narrating the three stories in a concise format, I am very sure, the impact would’ve only been razor-sharp and far more compelling that what it is. On the whole, PYAAR KA PUNCHNAMA has a single-point plan of engaging and amusing the spectators by telling a story which is unusual, yet relevant. It’s radiantly good cinema that needs to be lauded and encouraged. Strongly recommended, go for it!

The film has an interesting premise. But so far, so good. The film has two major problems which make it somewhat tedious viewing. First, it stretches a paper-thin story to inordinate lengths and becomes a real test of patience. Secondly is the appalling gender skew. Okay, relationships go wrong, but is it right to blame all the misdeeds on the foul female species. Doesn’t seem fair, really. The film had promise and does have a few funny sequences. But by and large, it’s a case of promises unfulfilled.

Pyaar Ka Punchnama, written and directed by debutant Luv Ranjan, starts out with some promise, echoing Dil Chahta Hai with a laid-back, buddy vibe but that evaporates as soon as the women appear.The plot is inert and the dialogue, vacuous. The film feels like it’s in slow-motion. Nothing much happens for a very long time.Divyendu and Kartikeya even manage to infuse some emotional heft into the proceedings but finally, this script proves to be too high a hurdle to clear.

Ratings:2/5 Reviewer:Shaikh Ayaz Site:Rediff

At first glance, Pyaar Ka Punchnama looks like a younger version of Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji.What saves the film from falling off the rails are the genuine comic touches in parts and an assured performance by most of its cast.To be fair, Pyaar Ka Punchnama is half-way funny but soon descends into a running commentary on why relationships with women are impossible and eventually wends its way to a very implausible end. It could have definitely done with some editing.If it were crisper, with more thought put into its script, situations and dialogue, Pyaar Ka Punchnama would have made the cut.

This is the kind of film every guy will swear by while no gal will admit to being like any of the women in the film.Boys, watch this with your guy friends and count the number of times you exchange sahi hai. You are bound to find many moments, most of them in Tiwari’s monologue. But if you are a woman, take the cheap jokes sportingly. You just know you are too awesome for it to affect you.The only problem with Pyar Ka Punchnama is its running time. The second half seems never-ending, sappy and pleading for sympathy.

Though ‘Pyaar Ka Punchnama’ is the most common genre of all time (romantic comedy), the film is contemporary, witty, sharp, amusing and takes a sarcastic take on love.  As romantic comedies are lovey-dovey, the film actually shows the disastrous effects and consequences of love. The anti climax is good as seriously you ‘fall out of love’ by the end of it.  The experience of love and break-up in a span of ten minutes is what amuses you most as it’s very real and relatable.

 Ratings:2/5 Reviewer:Pankaj Sabnani Site:Glamsham

The initial few minutes of the film are fresh and enjoyable. The problem in the film arises when the couples start facing problems in their respective relationships. All the tracks drag to no end.Many of the things shown in the film are real are relatable. But they get very monotonous and boring as a viewer. The graph of the film oscillates from being very funny to very clumsy. The film needed to be much shorter, which would have helped it immensely. PYAAR KA PUNCHNAMA is inconsistent and lacks ‘punch’.
