IBTimes India Rating: 2.5
Sure Bollywood has moved ahead of the times when sex would mean two pretty looking flowers coming together. But, the genre – sex comedy – still needs some work.
Mandar Ponkshe (Gulshan Devaiah), who gladly calls himself 'Vaasu', is a sex addict. While most would satiate their lustful wants by watching porn, this guy wants some 'real' fun. But, growing up he got tonsured for watching an adult movie at a video parlour.
From getting girlfriend Parul (Veera Saxena) to his hostel room, to engaging in secret romance with married lady Jyotsna (Sai Tamhankar); as if this wasn't eventful enough that he gets frisky with seductress Savita Bhaabi.
Ponkshe's philandering ways is brought to a halt by Trupti's carefree approach towards life. He is drawn and irrevocably in love, so much so that the wishes to confess all of his unchaste desires.
Debutant director Harshavardhan Kulkarni's "Hunterrr" is laced with witty one-liners and partially hilarious, but what would have pushed it to the 'must-watch' movie list is a linear narrative. The story shuttles frequently between past and present, in the process leaving you confused.
The curse of the second half too got the better of this coming-of-age film. The build up to the story was as smooth as silk, but post-interval it went into a cool-down mode.
Gulshan lends credibility to his oversexed character Mandar. Radhika's confident Trupti was a good reason to believe that the actress was here for the long haul. Veera and Sai have tiny roles, but they did what the script needed them to do.
Altaf Raja and Bappi Lahiri's compositions were more like having migraine on speed dial but it fit well.
In a nutshell, "Hunterrr" is not the usual sleaze fest filmmakers have been feeding the audience with in the name of sex-comedies, but it's strictly for those with an appetite for soft sexual content.
