Quick Review of “Hunterrr”


Cast: Gulshan Devaiya, Radhika Apte, Sai Tamhankar, Sagar Deshmukh, Veera Saxena, Rachel D’Souza
Released on 20th March, 2015

Hunterrr, a Hindi comedy film written and directed by Harshavardhan Kulkarni. It talks about one of a taboo and forbidden topic i.e. sex. The movie depicts the story of the lead protagonist’s sex-addiction, lust. Scenes are merged in present and past so as to tell the story. The best part of this movie is that storytelling is done in an absolutely non-vulgar manner.

Vaasu aka Mandar Ponkshe (Gulshan Devaiah)’s growing up phase is shown along with his cousin and a friend. They three hang out together. As a teenager, once, Mandar gets caught by the police man when he watches an adults film. He is left free after half-shaving hair on his head. As he grows up, he starts understanding the ‘wants of a woman’ and fulfills his lust. He has his own logic for not getting emotionally entangled in the relationships and also for not getting married: he is marriage-phobic; he doesn’t believe in the concept of falling in ‘love’ and he feels that marriage will curb all his ‘vaasugiri’.

Amidst all his hunted relationships, he comes across a very carefree Trupti (Radhika Apte). How do their relationship move further? Is Mandar able to confess his vaasugiri stories? How Trupti handles the transparency part of the relationship?

Hunterrr is being handled in a non-vulgar manner.
