Story: Four friends take off for adventure sport and discover little-known personal aspects of one another. Years later they reunite and this time the equation is even more combustible.
Youth is a many splendoured thing. An alive, fresh vibe dominates Ayan Mukerji's Yeh Jaawani Hai Deewani invigorating you through it's entire run. The story is not novel, but the treatment is A-grade.
Ranbir Kapoor(Kabir Thapa aka Bunny), Deepika Padukone (Naina), Kalki Koechlin (Aditi) and Aditya Roy Kapur (Avi) go on a trek. While Bunny, Aditi and Avi have always been close, Naina, the staid, studious girl is a last minute addition to the group. The group just wants to live life king-size. Early enough in the film, Bunny announces—marriage at 25, children at 30, retirement at 50 and then waiting for death—is not how he sees his life playing out. He wants to travel the world, he wants to be free. Aditi and Avi share his thinking to a degree. But Naina is different. She is studying to be a doctor, believes in family and is a rooted young lady with traditional values.
The first half of the film is a fun-ride. Watching Madhuri Dixit do a ghagra number with Ranbir is a ceeti-moment. At intermission point, the film rightly leaves you yearning for more.
The first twenty minutes of the second half is mundane. But the action comes together again at Aditi's wedding. Against the backdrop of the big, fat Indian wedding in picturesque Udaipur, the friends unite for the festivities. But the chinks in the armour show by way of their mixed ideologies and changed priorities. Of course there's no battle big enough that friendship cannot surmount. So, between tears and cheers, Bunny, Naina, Aditi and Avi forge equations that are more real with one another and with the audience.
Ranbir is delectable and a true-blue superstar. This pedigreed actor dances like a dream, looks terrific and emotes effortlessly. Watch out for the scenes with his father Farooque Shaikh. Deepika is first-rate as is Kalki. Evelyn Sharma and Kunal Roy Kapur provide humour.
What more can be said about Ranbir. After Rockstar he's set a bar too high for himself and for the rest of Bollywood fraternity. Still, this film matches the charisma of Rockstar. A true depiction of modern day friendship and love and yes the dance numbers and foot tapping music. A full paisa vasool movie.
A fun and enjoyable movie that you feel you've enjoyed by being a part of. The characters are played really well by all the film stars but Deepika and Ranbir play theirs the best. The songs are also worth listening and enjoying.
I barely make it through. It is an old fashion coming of age movie(bad one).When I am watching this movie for the first time I feel and my subconscious mind says I watched it! I watched it. Like i watched it thousands times before. And Deepika Padukone's acting sucks.
A very entertaining film. Ranbir is fantastic as a rebel who would not budge from his dream. Deepika is super both as studious as well as cool. Kalki, Aditya, Kunal all are good to make a fantastic buddy film.
Surprise surprise Deepika.. What a girl and what a performance !!! The movie is a good watch. Deepika is looking absolutely stunning and the girl can act. Ranbir as usual is terrific. And Kalki of course is a star performer.
