Before going for this movie, i had minimal expectations for this movie as there were comparisons drawn between this one and wht hppnd in vegas....but to clear the air, its no where similar to it in fact this one is better than that. Don't know why but i was reminded of 500 days of summer while watching this.
Now coming to movie, it starts slowly. First 15 minutes are just decent, nothing great. But after this movie takes pace, when both leads start a journey of their lifetime. Plot is quite predictable but the treatment is quite unique from the first time director. There are so many light, comic moments thereafter that will keep u engaged and smiling at same time.
Regarding performances, kareena is in full form after playing feedle to khan's in ra one and bodyguard. She had owned this role completely. She was fantastic. Imran Khan was surprisingly good. Normally i don't like him except in Janne tu and Delhi belly. This was his best performance till date. All other supporting cast was good too.
Special mention for the ending which differentiates it from all other standard rom-coms. Ending is much realistic and was cheery on the cake.
Simply loved this movie and will recommend to go for this if u r a fan of rom-coms like Notting Hill, 500 days of summer etc. Recommended.
