Parineeti Chopra returns to the big screen after a gap of almost two years with Meri Pyaari Bindu which also stars Ayushmann Khurrana in the lead role. While the music of this romcom has been topping the charts for quite a while now and the lead pair’s chemistry also looked adorable as hell.The nostalgia and the concept of childhood love, while stroking our affection for yesteryear songs – it was not difficult to get charmed by the trailer. We were already invested in the love story of Abhimanyu and Bindu when those five chapters had ended. Now it’s time to watch the whole story. Our critic Sreeju Sudhakaran is watching the film at a multiplex right now and has sent us his first impressions of the film.

Sreeju says, “Meri Pyaari Bindu is directed by debutante Akshay Roy and produced by Maneesh Sharma. Ayushmann Khurrana and Parineeti Chopra play the leads here. Abhimanyu Roy is a successful writer of sleazy horror novels. But his next is a love story based on his on failed romance with his childhood romance with Bindu, whose current whereabouts is presently unknown to us. The first half shows their friendship as 7-year olds in 1983 to their college passout phase in 2004.

Love is yet to creep in this tale, though Abhimanyu is besotted with Bindu. However, we are still charmed by their friendship, against the backdrop of yesteryear songs. Though the plot hasn’t moved much here, the humourous proceedings and Ayushmann Khurrana and Parineeti Chopra’s affable charm works well for the movie, at least till now. Expecting to see more magic in this love story in the second half”
