Plot: Vira (Madan Deodhar) is a brilliant young engineering student who stumbles upon a peculiar gadget designed by one of his professors. A competition titled ‘Gadget Day’ has the students competing for the best new gadget and everybody is coming up with schemes on how to win. Anaya (Ketaki Mategaonkar) is the college’s secretary and a gifted student who catches Vira’s eye. He falls in love with her, but alas it’s unrequited. He goes on to develop the gadget he found and creates an Artificial Intelligence entity, a figure that resembles both in physical form and voice, his one true love, Anaya. Chaos ensues when he tries to hide it from his friends.
Aces: Director Sujay Dahake has made a very gripping science fiction thriller in which the younger generation of actors have put their best foot forward in their individual characters assigned to them and the best of the lot is of course the lead pair of Madan Deodhar & Ketaki Mategaonkar.
Minuses: Phuntroo is a love story based on a backdrop of a science fiction thriller which is quite new and perhaps unacceptable to the stereotyped Marathi audiences who are still fond of their staple diet of lavani’s and tamashas.
Last Word: Yet all said & done the multiplexes’ city audiences are definitely going to like this daringly different movie.
