In Ankert University, California, Alisha (Priyanka Chopra) is the most beautiful girl on campus Everybody loves Alisha! It is no surprise then that Abhay (Uday Chopra) loves her too. More than his computer programs and MAC stores he thinks of Alisha. but just who is Abhay? He is a nerdy, awkward, socially challenged, bespectacled geek of the college who is so far removed from her world that she doesn't even know that people like him actually exist. Abhay has quietly loved Alisha all his life. One day he musters up enough courage to go and express his true feelings to her and realizes that it is never gonna happen. He comes to terms with the fact that Alisha is a Princess and he is just a Geek. Later, their paths cross again, as Abhay is busy trying to launch his career. Fate again brings him face to face with the woman of his dreams, Alisha...

YRF is the symbol of excellence for cinema in India; one of oldest and most successful film production companies that†† has always delivered the biggest if not the best films consistently. Well, lately they haven't been having the golden run of 2004/2005/2006, but a Chak De here and a New York there have kept them in the big league. With the star support they have - SRK, Saif, Rani, AB Jr. and Sr. among others - they will always remain a force to reckon with. Oh, they have also ventured into television but that is not our concern at the moment.

Our concern, as you can guess, is the movie on hand and here we are tomtoming the glory of the production house here, but what to do? I am really at a loss for words when it comes to this epic production witnessed by a handful of theatergoers. Before I start, a quick note: Uday Chopra (UC) and master Jugal Hansraj are best friends. They are and they will always be, god bless their association. And now, an initial reaction on the film at hand: OH MY GOD!

Every now and then UC has got his time under the sun with a chance to go solo with his home banner, be it Mere Yaar ki Shaadi hai in '01 - or the vivacious Neel n Nikki (a children's classic) in Ď05, and now in '10, it's time again for the youngest scion of the glorious empire to strike back. And strike us he does with a bang: leading man, producer, story/screenplay/dialogue writer ... editing, cinematography, mus... oh sorry, let's stick to the first five. UC does seem like a smart guy, he has been the underdog actor all along and inspite of being an integral part of 3 mammoth blockbusters (Mohabbatein, Dhoom 1 and Dhoom 2), he's never been considered for solo glory. Fair enough, he does not have the looks, charm or charishma of the typical leading man, but he has made an impression with his odd ball comic turns in the Dhoom series and is quite a serviceable performer. So when he decided to craft a project for himself with a buddy directing and one of the top three leading ladies, there was hope!

Hope, eternally the tricky notion. It makes one go for something with the belief that eventually good things will happen and there is some good left in this world and it's worth fighting for (LOTR: Return of the King), so the first hot ticket of 2010 from the daddies of Bollywood did have a semblance of hope attached to it: UC taking it upon himself to resurrect or at least stamp his authority on the year that lay ahead. Somewhere, somehow, someway... But as a lot of people learnt the hard way (as all audiences did): hope just ain't good enough. Yup, it isn't and nothing can save this love story of a geek/Steve Jobs/child technician (UC, aptly cast), a beautiful, divorced, single, working woman (Ms double take/like Priyanka Chopra), the wannabe Amrish Puri sahab, saying 'chuti' for 'chutti' and 'nenny' for 'nanny' (the great Dino Day Lewis Morea himself), along with the finest/energetic/vibrant/adorable (NOT!) child actor and the most considerate boss ("oh, you are late for the biggest presentation of our company, but itís fine, you are also the lead actress"). The film never ends. In fact, it's still going on.

Its been a very disturbing day watching the completely predictable, impossibly done to death, continually dragging, extremely lame, supremely boring, incredibly shallow and... I'm going to stop. Even though I was tempted to leave several times, eventually I did take up impossible mission to see it through and I do live to write this. So there will always be hope, a hope of deliverance from the darkness that surrounds us (Sir Paul McCartney).

They might have tried to sell it to us but if only they had thought about what they were making (the message of this impossibility). The UC reference is from Aby Baby's rap-fest 'Right here right now' where he asked UC to 'keep running homeboy'. Well UC has got to do some more running. Meanwhile we can run along and watch some YRF TV instead.

PS: If you're still determined to watch this, Pyaar Unwatchable, hope you survive long enough to watch the brilliantly thought of and executed password ending. It is truly Impossible!
