Movie Review: Pyar Ke Side Effects

… and I was the one thinking Mallika Sherawat cannot act. Well, this time she proved me totally wrong.

Let me not waste much of the time and start the stuff….

The story is about a DJ, Sid (Rahul Bose) and his girlfriend Trisha (Mallika Sherawat), they are carrying on the affair smoothly for 3 years and things starts messing up when she proposes him for the marriage. Sid cannot decide anything as he was not sure about it but somehow he agrees for the marriage. But because of Sid’s hesitation for the marriage they both finally decide to part their ways. And like every other story the prince is gonna get the princess in the end.

But the fun part is how he is gonna get it? What are the things which makes him firm on the marriage decision.

The movie starts with very funny moments and first half of the movie is going to make you laugh like mad. Yeah, I can assure you that. Even 2nd half is good but 1st half is pure fun.

Rahul Bose plays dual role in the movie by acting as a narrator of the movie and he does his job very well too. I think this role explores capabilities of Rahul Bose as an actor. He has proved that he can do non-serious roles too. Mallika Sherawat on the other hand does a very good job too. In fact this will be her first movie where she got something more to do i.e. more than those seductive scenes.

Ranvir Shorey is another actor to watch in this movie. He plays best friend of Rahul Bose, those funny moments between both of them are just unforgettable.

Okay, time to sum things up.

Story: Pretty much predictable, nothing great but characters of the movie played a very strong role here and converted it to well narrated romantic comedy movie.

Acting: As mentioned earlier Rahul Bose, Mallika Sherawat and Ranvir Shorey rocked. Other actors did their role well.

Music: Very happening music targeted to teenagers mainly. It has got the dance floor material. Pretty good music.

So overall, I would give this movie 3 stars out of 5. The movie mainly targets multiplexes i.e. it won’t appeal to the masses. But it is a must watch and I am sure people will enjoy it.


  1. actually i knew one movie of mallika sherawat will show her acting skills too..
    cause she never acted and just exposed, but in those movies also in bit bit sceans , i had seen her acting..
    a movie like murder , she had acted , but the publicity stunts made her image something else only .
    Rahul bose .. he is always a good actor … 🙂

    music i have heard on radio and tv, i really liked it too 🙂

    will sure watch if i get a chance 🙂


  2. The movie’s subject was such that if done justice to the title, the story would be quite good. So not surprised to see good review for the movie. The music is good, the song “Pyaar Karke” is already quite popular. I don’t like “Dil Tod Ke Na Ja”.

  3. Good movie overall… not a bad time pass.

    Good reasonable acting for malike this time around and Rahul as always… good. Just love his toad like eyes…. gool gool…

    Music: Love the song ALLAH bachaiye in perticular… Rest it is a Ok.

    But one thing is kept on striking me.. is it really what happens after one got engaged or married… ? whould like to hear from others on this. Specailly from engaged and married.
