Directed by Mohit Suri
You can accuse Chetan Bhagat’s novels of being lots things from silly to shallow. But you can never fault them for their entertainment value.
Director Mohit Suri known to make cinema on compulsive love (Aashiqui 2, Ek Adhuri Kahaani) takes the theme of self-annihilation in a romantic association to the extreme, bringing out his hero, a Bihari non-English medium type in Delhi who falls for a girl much higher than her heels and his social status, as a love-struck wimp obsessed with his object of adoration to the point of complete self-ruination.
This was how Chetan Bhagat meant his novel to be. The man-woman equation was seen in the light of status and social standing and then judged within the parameters of a heart-to-heart connection. Director Suri amplifies the theme of love between unequals. The complications are frail and far-fetched. »
