MY FRIEND PINTO quick movie review: Cute, but boring

Prateik is good, but the film is not

Ever since Prateik (no Babbar, please) made his filmy debut in Jaane Tu… Ya Jaane Na, and followed it up with an impressive performance in Dhobi Ghat, we have been eager to watch him in a full-fledged lead role. And My Friend Pinto, we thought, would showcase his acting talent. Alas, My Friend Pinto isn’t what we hoped it would be. This is what our very own critic smsed us as she watched it in the theatre, “Until interval, the film is cute but not enough to work for the masses. Overheard college students in the theatre hall saying they found Mausam more entertaining. My Friend Pinto just bored them after a point. But Prateik is cute in his role of a gullible guy.”

We wait for the full review from our critic. You can watch this space for a link to the main review later today.
