Pyaar Impossible

Cast: Priyanka Chopra, Uday Chopra, Anupam Kher, Dino Mo
Director: Jugal Hansraj
Producer: Uday Chopra
Music Director: Salim Sulaiman
Banner: Yashraj Films

Pyaar Impossible is just the subject in which Uday Chopra would fit perfectly, a one sided love story of a geeky looking man for a pretty looking girl. So the hero Abhay Sharma (Uday) has been in love with Alisha Merchant (Priyanka Chopra) and the villain is Varun Sanghavi (Dino Morea) who, in keeping with the times, has stolen a software created by Abhay and is cashing it in with the firm Alisha is working with; but how to woo her? Well, she is a divorcee and has a cute little daughter whose nanny has gone AWOL. So when Abhay is chasing Alisha till her home to talk about his stolen software, she mistakes him for replacement nanny. The cute girl is his password to make headway with Alisha whom he has loved for seven years. Win the kid and she will help him win her mother.

This is a story with a lot to convey through performances. However, Priyanka Chopra tries a Rachael (Jennifer Aniston in Friends) and ends up shaking and gesticulating like an Alzheimer patient, ever standing still. And why is she talking in English most of the time? Imitating a foreign artiste does not necessarily mean talking a foreign language! Uday Chopra’s range of expressions starts and ends at his cheekbones. Anupam Kher has few scenes. Dino Morea is okay. Child artiste Advika Yadav is full of pep and natural on screen.

The fact that the film has been shot in Singapore makes for a pleasant viewing. The screenplay is stretched while dialogue is okay. Direction shows deep influence of Hollywood films. Not many light sequences either. Emotional scenes make no impact. The musical score is passable.

Commercially, though given a curtailed release, Pyaar Impossible has little merit to sustain at the box office.
