Zee 5's latest comedy-drama film Virgin Bhanupriya follows the story of Bhanupriya Awasthi (Urvashi Rautela), a college student in her 20's who desperately desires to lose her virginity but fails every time. Her parents Vijay (Rajiv Gupta) and Madhu (Archana Puran Singh) are separated and always get to each other's throats whenever they meet. Bhanu's best friend Rukul (Rumana Molla) consistently gives her relationship guidance who herself has her life in shambles.

Rajeev (Sumit Gulati), one of Rukul's acquaintances likes Bhanupriya and tries a lot of ways to attract her, however, destiny has some different plans for Bhanupriya and she soon finds a man, Shartiya a.k.a Abhimanyu (Gautam Gulati) in a hope to fulfil her search for the perfect man. But according to Bhanupriya's family friend and tarot card reader (Delnaaz Irani) she has destined for something else. What happens further in Bhanupriya's life, does she get the man of her dreams or not is the rest of the story of the film.

Virgin Bhanupriya revolves around a girl who doesn't have anything important in her life except losing her virginity. Some dialogues in this film are ridiculous or cheap would be a proper term as they feel absurd in the name of sex comedy, especially the conversation of Bhanu and her dad. Only at a few points, it seems to be funny but for those of you who are expecting to see some good humour or some sizzling scenes, you will surely be disappointed. Bhanu's love starts from the thought of virginity and ends with that only.

Roles of females are powerful in the film in terms of approach, appearance and limelight, but, sexual comedy is all hither & thither. The storyline could have been better as, after some time, it becomes boring and predictable. There's just a small twist which could have fun and humour but unfortunately, that part is very less and again fails to make it amusing.

Urvashi Rautela fits in the character gracefully and her acting is appreciable, even in her silence, she is more expressive in her emotional side as compared to Gautam Gulati who seems to be overacting his part at many points but still, saves the grace with his charm most of the time.

Rajiv Gupta as Bhanupriya's father looks convincingly good in his character, Archana Puran Singh and Brijendra Kala are average in their brief roles and Rumana Molla as Bhanupriya's badass friend Rukul is a delight to watch on screen.

As a director, Ajay Lohan plays his role quite well especially when there is no such comedy that is expected. If talking about music then the songs are smooth and stir well with the storyline. All in all, it's a one time watch that too if you are a fan of Urvashi Rautela or Gautam Gulati.
