Hot young actor Prateik Babbar stars in the new film My Friend Pinto. He is known for his more off beat roles in his young career, however, this time Prateik is getting his comedy avatar on and from what we have seen he is going to get us falling off our seats in the theater. Produced by UTV and Sanjay Leela Bhasali, My Friend Pinto is directed by Raaghav Dar and also stars Kalki Koechlin, Manisha Koirala, Naseruddin Shah, Divya Dutta and Makrand Deshpande.
Twenty-something Michael Pinto has grown up in a small Goan village, believing everyone in the world to be simple, kind and honest, just like him. His world revolves around a doting mother, a passion for music and the memories of a childhood friend, Sameer, who left Goa for Mumbai many years ago and hasn’t replied to his frequent letters ever since. Pinto’s talent for music is only matched by his knack for finding trouble in the unlikeliest of places often resulting in the most outlandish and hilarious situations. When Pinto’s idyllic world is shattered by the sudden demise of his mother he decides to head to Mumbai in search of the only friend he knows. Will Pinto find Sameer or will trouble find him first? Will Pinto and his crazy antics survive the big bad city or more importantly, will Mumbai survive a phenomenon called Pinto.

All we can say is this is certainly not the Pratiek of Jaane Tu or Dhobi Ghat and we can’t wait to see what is in store when My Friend Pinto releases on October 14th!
