Goofs

In the last scene, where Saif Ali Khan is proposing Diana Penty for marriage, the camera keeps on switching from his face to her face and vice-versa. In this sequence, we get to see that Diana Penty's hairstyle changes every time (when the focus is on Diana, she is seen with left and right thin braids stuck to her back hair by pin. But when the focus is on Saif Ali khan, we get to see Diana's back hair and there are no braids stuck at the back. A side shot of her hair reveals that there are no braids also. That means Diana's and Saif's shots were taken at different time. When Diana's shot was taken, she had braids. But when Saif's shot was taken, she had no braids! Seems to have bypassed the editor's eye. See more »

Winning First-Hour, Average Second!
13 July 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Homi Adajania's 'Cocktail' has a Winning First-Half, but an Average Second. It begins wonderfully & offers some hilarious moments, but in the latter hour, the proceedings not only become serious but also very dry. Nonetheless, a decent effort!

'Cocktail' is about 3 friends, of whom each, falls in love with one another.

'Cocktail' rides on an excellent first-hour, with each sequence working big-time. But as mentioned, the second-hour is average. The proceedings appear dry. Imtiaz Ali & Sajid Ali's Screenplay is good, but could've been tighter in the latter hour. Homi Adajania's Direction is highly efficient. Cinematography, Editing & Production Design, are top-class. Music by Pritam, is terrific.

Performance-Wise: Saif Ali Khan is a fine actor & the actor once again pitches in a sincere, believable performance. Deepika Padukone is fantastic, her performance stands out. Diana Penty does quiet well, although her role lacks meat. Dimple Kapadia & Boman Irani are impeccable. Their sequences are simply hilarious! Randeep Hooda deserved a better deal.

On the whole, 'Cocktail' is a decent effort.
