Today’s release Hunterrr has been quite in news and now the movie is out. Well, the film almost walks on the lines of adult comedies. These days, adult comedies are a fashion in Hindi cinema industry and the acceptance from the viewers is quite high. This is the reason the filmmakers are inclined to churn out flicks on this genre. Hunterrr is a come of age flick.
Hunterrr begins with the self-confessed Vaasu aka Mandar Ponkshe (Gulshan Deviah). The reels unzips with Mandar and his communiqué with his fiancée Trupti (Radhika Apte). Flashbacks begin and they are linked to present situation. The film then goes on with flashbacks and present situations. His all friends get married, but he is the one who wants to stay unmarried for some reasons like he happens to be marriage phobic, does not believe in love and marriage will limit his vasugiris. Once he starts growing, he feels the women’s needs in life and he then becomes a hunter. Many women come into his life like Jyotsna (Sai Tamhankar), Parul (Veera Saxena) and others. In the midst, he stumbles upon Trupti with whom he gets engaged. He shows her that he is a very nice and honest type of guy in order to impress her. But on the other hand, she is an open-minded type of bold girl, who tells him even her previous affairs. Mandar now starts loving her and wants to reveal all about him to her. Once being drunk, he goes to her to make confessions. What happens next is what forms the rest of the story.
Harshavardhan Kulkarni shows he is a master storyteller. He executes the story brilliantly on celluloid. The plot is fine and the script has very lesser flaws, which are avoidable. For writing and direction, Harshavardhan Kulkarni grabs the credits. Editing is fine. Cinematography is brilliant. Music is below average.
Gulshan Devaiah does a bravura job. Radhika Apte is brilliant to watch. Sai Tamhankar does fine and Veera Saxena looks good also. Rest of the cast does nice also.
On the whole, Hunterrr is a brilliantly executed film laced with witty comedy, unblemished script, marvelous direction and classy performances.
