What’s Hot

  • The movie is a capsule of emotions that every teenager encounters; be it Love, Anger, Ambition, Mischief or Determination. Each emotion stands out yet compliments others. Kudos to Ayan Mukerji for his handling of this coming-of-age tale.
  • Ranbir Kapoor revels in his role as the charming, mischievous Bunny and is a natural at playing such roles. His performance in the emotional scenes make him all the more endearing.
  • Deepika plays the role of the simple and sweet Naina very well. The change in her personality over a span of eight years from being a timid closeted young college girl to a confident gorgeous young woman is well brought out. Her chemistry with Ranbir is magical and their conversations are a treat to watch.
  • Kalki as a complete rebel and a beautiful bride has pulled off her character effortlessly. Aditya brings out the bitter-sweet instances that friendships go through, splendidly. Farooq Sheikh as an ever loving father and a valiant husband brings a refreshing warmth to the screen.
  • Pritam’s songs are a a big plus to this film as they have chart-busting hits on their own. All the songs are brought to life with terrific performances by Ranbir & co. Manikandan’s visuals give the movie real class and we are presented stunning shots of Manali’s snow clad peaks, and the romantic side of Paris.

What’s Not

  • The movie is highly predictable every step of the way but the high-profile casting saves it.
  • Aditya’s character does not find a completion like others in the movie which is disappointing.
  • Though Evelyn Sharma looks good, her role is totally in clichéd territory and it gets irritating.
  • The film is a bit over-the-top especially when it comes to costumes.



Verdict Stamp

A light-hearted clichéd romantic comedy that is powered by a superb star cast and rich production values.
