Hunterrr is comical yet realistic and totally epic!

By Supriya Nair

Cast - Gulshan Devaiah, Radhika Apte and Sai Tamhankar

Rating- ****

Director -Harshavardhan Kulkarni

Hunterrr tells the story of a sex crazed guy and follows his journey from adolescence to adulthood. What starts off as exploration in the pubescent stage becomes an obsession during adulthood. It's hard to find faults in Harshavardhan Kulkarni's story telling as Hunterrr deals with a very strong subject which could have easily drifted into the sex comedy zone but the director has a strong grip over its proceedings.

While there were several transitions from the past to the present, the narrative is seamless. I've always felt that location is a key point and filmmakers seem to realize the importance of setting more than anything else now. The colloquial flavor that setting adds to the film has power to transform it and take it to a whole new level. Hunterrr, best seems to exemplify this aspect of film-making.
Add to that exemplary dialogues by Vijay Morya and Harshavardhan Kulkarni.

The casting is pitch perfect with every character doing complete justice to the roles assigned to them. Gulshan Devaiah flourishes in his role. Although this could easily be one of Radhika Apte's best performances till date, her character was quite mysterious. Sai Tamankar changes from the demure housewife to a sexy siren effortlessly. What's really beautiful about the story is that everyone can connect to the situations and characters.

The songs serve their function beautifully and add to the momentum of the film. Calling a film like Hunterrr a sex comedy would be an insult to the film. But for a film this perfect where its difficult to find flaws, the climax was a tad disappointing and a little far fetched. However, keeping with the tone of the film, where everything is unconventional, the climax stays true to that tone.

Our verdict:Hunterrr is worth every penny of your money spent and more! You cannot afford to miss this one.
