Pyaar Impossible – Junk, Say Critics

Guys, if it’s a Priyanka Chopra movie you can be sure it’s trash.

And so it is with Pyaar Impossible.

Here’s how a bunch of reviewers have trashed Pyaar Impossible:

Bangalore Mirror:

God help us! The story, screenplay and dialogue credited to the film’s producer-hero Uday Chopra are obsolete. And, the pace of the film lulls you into a semi-coma.

….Salim-Sulaiman’s music is unimpressive. And Jugal Hunsraj may as well have let Uday direct this venture also because he has got zero help from the writing department. Honestly guys wake up and smell the coffee. Forget love, even hate isn’t possible here. This film leaves you bereft of emotions.


Pyaar Impossible is painfully predictable, and offers nothing original in its writing or treatment. On more occasions than one, the makers compromise basic common sense to deliver scenes that are offensive or plain dangerous.

…Indeed, it’s impossible to find much love for this film!


Pyaar Impossible is one of those superbly shallow films that manages to offend you on every level – as a viewer, as a woman, as a mother. This Notting Hill-style rom-com is singularly charmless and absolutely impossible.


[D]irector Jugal Hansraj proceeds to concentrate on making sure that Priyanka Chopra’s clothes get skimpier by the scene and insert meaningless songs and jokes, thus leaving this movie bereft of the one thing it needed the most — heart.

….Loopholes are plenty, dialogues are hackneyed and the lead characters share absolutely no chemistry. Really, in some scenes Priyanka and Uday look more like brother and sister than romantic lovers, even though they both put in sincere performances.

The filmmaker seems to be treating audiences as juveniles, who need an equally juvenile plot to entertain them. I think we are all better than that.

    just wanted to record my comment and see, in the all-new-look Search India 😉 Responds:

    Yes, your ‘vote’ has been recorded for posterity. 😉

    Hope you have something for Incredible India:

    > Cop bleeds to death as ministers watch


    and the video Responds:

    Yes, saw this. Will add to Incredible India.

    Tragedy because he did not get timely help.

    A double tragedy because it was mistaken identity.

    Another example, how Police remains a silent spectator. Happened an year ago at law college. Responds:

    I wudnt have seen this movie anyways, but now that I hear it’s “inspired” by Notting Hill, I’m gonna give it a wide berth. I loved Notting Hill, fell in love with Hugh Grant, actually. And I simply can’t watch Uday “Chimp” Chopra in his role. YUCK!!!

    On an unrelated note – I purchased a domain a few days back just for fun; now I have no idea how to improve it. Maybe you could check it out – and give me your valuable comments and suggestions 😉 Responds:

    You write: Maybe you could check it out – and give me your valuable comments and suggestions

    Just looked at your new domain.

    We have only one question. But a big one.

    In the interests of SI blog’s longevity, would you please advise us on which color bra reduces the odds of getting breast cancer? 😉

    Also, if we can squeak in another question – Do ‘push-ups’ cause cancer? 😉

      what about the bra-burners? will they be colorless? Responds:

      Oh, no…anything but colorless. 😉

      Heard that through regular gentle(man’s) massage, one would be able to identify.

      😉 Responds:

      Appadiya (is that so)?

    Duh! 😛

    I’ve also received a stinker – my first ever! People seem to be really touchy about this particular campaign, especially guys! 😐 Responds:

    Your responses are coming up as separate comments on your blog…wouldn’t that be confusing for a newcomer quickly skimming through the page.

  6. Asha Tampa   January 12, 2010 at 5:16 am

    Yeah, when I was replying to the comments, they were in a different format – the format of your comments. But the actual look is different. Any solution? 😐
    Will ask one of my techie friends, since you’ve obviously gone to sleep 🙂 Responds:

    Assuming you are referring to the comments on your blog, click ‘edit’ on any comment, type in your response, then hit ‘update comment’ and finally click on the ‘approve’ tab.

      Do you have to type in Responds: everytime? or is that a “signature”.. have been wanting to ask that question – that is what set this blog apart from others, in my view. Responds:

      If we had to type in Responds: every time, we’d not have time to even ogle at Tabu. 😉

        why doesn’t it appear in bold when you do it on your iphone..

        watched a movie called “Beyond a reasonable doubt”.. because RBX didn’t have Basterds (it is on “very long wait” in NFLX) or Public Enemies.. and because I like to look at Tamblyn’s boobies.. one of the stupidest Hollywood movie I have ever seen.. as it had Michael Douglas, I thought it would be half-decent.. but..

        I don’t think I will get Basterds even today.. have to settle for Scarlett’s Johanssons in “He’s just not that into you” (I bet Asha would have seen it — how is it, Asha?) Responds:

        1. We blog on iPhone via the Safari browser, which does not allow for fancy stuff like bold, ital et al. Just bare-bones stuff.

        Recently we downloaded the WP App for iPhone but it looks like work in progress. Can’t even get it to load. 🙁

        2. You write: watched a movie called “Beyond a reasonable doubt”

        Saw Beyond a reasonable doubt at RedBox last night…was tempted for a second because of Michael Douglas but decided to stick to our first choice The Line (Andy Garcia). Will watch it now along with breakfast (Idli+Chutney).

    @ Lahiri – The movie in question is a bore. Skip it if you can 😐

    @SI – Went inside Settings and tinkered around; I am guessing the comment problem has been taken care of 🙂 Responds:

    Can we use an exclamation mark after a question mark?

    Maybe you should use an interrobang.

    • Asha Tampa   January 13, 2010 at 3:53 am

      Interesting! Though I somehow feel the essence would be lost, wouldn’t it?! 😉

      Btw, one request – when you give such links to other sites, can you format it such that when we click, a new tab or a new window opens? Responds:

      1. You write: Btw, one request – when you give such links to other sites, can you format it such that when we click, a new tab or a new window opens?

      Elementary, My Dear Watson – Hold the mouse-pointer on link, right-click, pick the Open Link in New Tab option. Voila. 😉

      Above simple technique works in both Firefox and that piece-of-shit IE browser.

      2. Sure you realized we were referring to the exclamation after the question mark in your blog piece.

  8. Asha Tampa   January 13, 2010 at 8:31 am

    My dear Holmes, that was enlightening for sure. I try to remember it, but when sometimes it slips out of my mind, your site slips out my sight, too 😉

    I realized you were referring to my post, but my answer was for the world in general 😀 Responds:

    You write: I try to remember it, but when sometimes it slips out of my mind, your site slips out my sight, too

    Remembering right-click is hardly in the E=MC2 complexity category.

    Dunno if WP has a feature to open links in new tab/new window instead of on same page.
