I was quite hesitant about watching this flick as I didn't like Sherawat's Murder. After some recommendations, I watched it last night and thought it was quite enjoyable and likable. Saket Chaudhary tells the story in a light manner. My only complaint is that Saket takes a lot of the humour from American sitcoms and movies. 'Pyaar ke Side Effects' tells us the story of Sid (from his point of view), his relationship with his girlfriend and friends and his fear of commitment. Sounds familiar? Anyway many of the 'issues' presented are things we guys have dealt with and girls put up with. The story is quite relatable and told in a mature manner.
Rahul Bose plays the central character and totally owns the movie. He is so real that any guy can easily identify with him. Supporting cast that includes Ranvir Shorey and Sophia Chaudhary are equally brilliant. Mallika Sherawat is alright. The songs are alright but quite forgettable.
If you're looking for something with light humour and something to watch with your girlfriend/boyfriend, this is a god enough choice. Now I can smile at you mischievously :).
