'Wild Wild Punjab' Review: These 'Fukreys' are victims of a cheap 'hangover'

Drugs, alcohol, girls, pills and abuses… Are these the first things that come to your mind when you hear the name Punjab? Or do you feel more Punjabi by calling Arora Arora and Khanna Khanna? I don't know about you, but our Bollywood film writers are not able to get out of this stereotypical image of Punjab. A recent example of this is the film 'Wild Wild Punjab', in which once again you will get to see the same loud style of Punjabi culture.

Story of 'Jungli Junglee Punjab'

Luv Ranjan, the maker of bromance films like the 'Pyaar Ka Punchnama' franchise and 'Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety', is the producer of this film. He is also one of the writers of the film, so here too the story is about the 'Dil Chahta Hai' moment i.e. the road trip (absolutely bumpy) of four 'Fukras' – sex addict Maan Arora aka Arora (Sunny Singh), father-in-law Gaurav Jain aka Jainu (Jassi Gill), lovelorn Rajesh Khanna aka Khanna (Varun Sharma) and Papaji and Paro (SUV) enthusiast Honey Paaji (Manjot Singh).

What happens is that Khanna comes across 'Pyaar Ka Punchnama'. His love Vaishali runs away with her boss. When 'Devdas' Khanna is about to commit suicide, Arora advises him to close this chapter by going to Vaishali's wedding and saying 'I am over you' in the style of 'Jab We Met'. Then, the quartet sets out from Patiala to Pathankot to find a cure for Khanna's heartache. But this journey creates upheaval in their lives. On one hand, Khanna becomes Radha's (Patralekhaa) husband by getting drunk in the style of 'Hangover', while on the other hand, he gets caught in the clutches of everyone from the police Rajesh Sharma to the drug mafia because of the smart Meera (Ishita Raj), who does not consider vaping as a cigarette.

'Wild Wild Punjab' movie review

Directed by Simarpreet Singh, this film seems to be a mix of 'Pyaar Ka Punchnama', 'Fukrey' and Hollywood's 'Hangover'. In the name of comedy, all the clichéd scenes have been repeated in the film, from firing in a wedding procession to treating a human in an animal hospital. No special effort has been made on the dialogues either. Especially the sexist lines like Vaishali being a prostitute hurt.

Talking about acting, Manjot Singh is the only one in the quartet who impresses. The rest Sunny Singh, Jassi Gill, Patralekha, Ishita Raj are okay in their roles. Another problem is that there is no depth in their characters. On the other hand, looking at Varun Sharma, it seems that he should now come out of the 'Fukrey' choocha loop.

Apart from this, the technical aspects of the film can be called fine. The film has been released on OTT, so you have to decide for yourself whether you want to waste your 1 hour 50 minutes on this 'Wild Wild Punjab' or not.

Why watch- If you are a fan of bromance movies with absurd comedy, then you can watch this movie.
