Virgin Bhanupriya Movie Review : Another run-of-the-mill take on sexual liberation

STORY: Bhanupriya (Urvashi Rautela) is a brilliant, extremely certified school woman whose largest remorse is that she remains to be a virgin. With slightly push from her forward-thinking good friend Rukul (Rumana Molla), Bhanu — as she is fondly referred to as — musters the braveness to provoke an intimate encounter. And that snowballs right into a comedy of errors.

REVIEW: Bhanupriya has a number of accolades to her credit score and has all the time been a star scholar. Even although her dad and mom are separated and are consistently at loggerheads, Bhanu nonetheless has a household life crammed with love. But she resents the truth that all her friends have begun fulfilling their sexual fantasies besides her. She is in school and but to kiss a boy!

With her good friend Rukul scoring males at an alarmingly excessive price, the self-imposed strain on Bhanu to “give away her flower” is mounting. After a number of failed makes an attempt at shedding her virginity and a tarot card reader’s prediction that she would all the time stay a virgin, Bhanu lastly finds a ‘heroic man’ —Shartiya aka Abhimanyu (Gautam Gulati). As his moniker states, he would go to any size to win a wager. Is Shartiya going to win her over and break the jinx? Only time will inform!

Written and directed by Ajay Lohan, the trope of this dramedy is all too acquainted — a nerdy woman searching for methods to discover her sexuality. In comes a foul, way-out-of-league boy and bam! She falls head over heels in love with him. Having stated that, ‘Virgin Bhanupriya’ brings to gentle the taboo round one’s sexual wishes in our society and the way dad and mom keep away from ‘the talk’ with their kids, amongst different issues. But the diegesis solely manages to the touch upon subtexts that deserve in-depth dealing with — the idea of a love little one, teen being pregnant and single motherhood. Also, a few of the parallel characters add little to the already lacklustre script. Case in level: Natasha Suri as Shonali.

Urvashi Rautela aces the girl-next-door avatar. Archana Puran Singh as her mouthy, open-minded mom is a delight to look at. Some of the opposite characters that depart a mark are Sumit Gulati as stutter ‘prem pujari’ Rajiv and Bhanu’s finest friend-cum-sidekick Rukul. While Sumit Gulati renders the a lot wanted comedian aid at periodic intervals, Rumana Molla’s Rukul is brassy and has a few of the finest monologues and one-liners. Our favorite: Men are sh*t and sh*t is males. Gautam Gulati, because the rowdy school heartthrob, is a misfit. If something, he seems like a determined try to recapture Aamir Khan’s machismo from ‘Gulaam’. Also, the chemistry between the lead pair doesn’t attraction even by comedy requirements — the love doesn’t blossom on display and the sexual attraction feels pressured upon its enforcers.

‘Virgin Bhanupriya’ has a noble intent and its coronary heart is in the correct place, however an inconsistent storyline, coupled with widespread tropes, make this virginity speak one thing I would not be too eager on listening to this weekend.
