Two straight guys pretend to be gay in order to secure a Miami apartment. When both of them fall for their roommate Neha, hilarity ensues as they strive to convince one and all that they're gay, secretly trying to win her heart.
In Mumbai, Sid Mehra is, in the words of his father, an arrogant, spoiled brat. He lives with a doting mother, subservient brother, and a father who covers his expenses and credit card bills. Sid takes his college finals then starts work at his father's business; he lasts less than a week before walking out. At a graduation party, he meets Aisha, newly arrived from Calcutta and set on becoming a writer. He shows her the city and helps her refurbish a rented flat. He asks if she'd like to progress from friend to something more, but she says no: he lacks ambition and isn't her type. Will her words, his exam results, a confrontation with his parents, and a break with his friends be enough to wake Sid up? Written by
Though the subtitles at least say "Bombay" and this film takes place in 2008, the city officially change its name to "Mumbai" in November 1995. See more »

Just look at me. I'm fat as a whale! I keep trying to lose weight but I fail every single day! You're not the only one with problems, all right, so stop being such a jerk!

I personally think it's one of the best movies of the year. The good-for-nothing least-bothered college boy has been played by Ranbir Kapoor perfectly. Considering the fact that he's just 3 movies old, this is by-far his BEST performance and not even near to being a '3rd movie performance'. It seems like he has been here since ages.
The movie is not all about him, though.
Konkona Sen Sharma gets a major part as the very ambitious, well-read aspiring writer who is a newbie in the city of Mumbai and knows nothing about the city but gets Ranbir Kapoor as her first friend on her first night in the city. They have a 7-year difference but have a very strong conversational chemistry.
Supriya Pathak is amazing as Ranbir's mother and her acting reminded me of my mum. :D
Anupam Kher also fits his role as the rich hard-working dad.
All-in-all, DO NOT MISS THIS MOVIE. You will surely not get disappointed.
And yes, it will get you moist-eyed and make you reminisce about all those days of your college which are surely dumped in some corner of your mind today.
Or just watch it for Ranbir. The movie belongs to him!
I watched it last night and can't WAIT to watch it again in the hall! :D
