In short, "Paapi" looks like an effort gone sour.

Aarya Babbar is the Paapi. Why, you ask? Well, Aditya Chowdhury as he is known in the film, poses as Rahul, dupes an innocent Hardwar girl Piya, marries her, has his fill of sex and after a few days, dumps her. Left in the lurch and with no support from the cops, Piya tries to commit suicide.

Honest lawyer Nirmal leafs through Piya's diary and comes to realize that they have one common enemy — Aditya Chowdhury. Incidentally, he is the same guy who was the reason behind his suspension. So now, Nirmal takes an oath to fight Piya's case and bring the 'Paapi' to book.

Aziz Sajawal was clear about one thing. The first half should belong to Aarya and the second to Prosenjit. So, his Aditya Chowdhury hogs the limelight with his honeymoon escapades, involving elaborate liplocks and some steamy lovemaking sequences. Strangely, when you try to match the lips to the dialogues, it seems like the characters are speaking in some other language and the Bengali dialogues look totally out of place.
The second half has Prosenjit threatening Aditya with, "Piyar case ta ami nichhi... Tui na parbi diner alo e nischinte kaj korte na parbi raater ondhokare nischintey ghumote."Aarya is left to a few scowling acts, grooving to the title track, "Paapi" , and an attempt to rape Piya on the pretext of giving her a job. Preachy and unnecessarily lengthy "Paapi" has very few things that can score. Prosenjit, however, looks dapper with his beard and cool casuals. Sayantika's act is limited to more of a song-dance routine. So, she shimmies and shakes to "Amar bhaita sala banao" apart from instructing Nirmal to let the law take its course. Rajesh Sharma hardly has any screen space to do justice to his ACP deal. In short, "Paapi" looks like an effort gone sour.
