Goofs

When Katrina Kaif is introduced on the beach, Hrithik and Abhay Deol are sitting on the beach-bench. When Farhan comes, Abhay is sitting on the bench. Then in the next cut, Abhay Deol is lying down on his stomach on the bench. Then again in the next cut, Abhay is lying on his back on the bench. A series of these cuts show the continuity mistakes in that particular shot. See more »

Be Yourself...!
15 July 2011 | by durgadada001See all my reviews

No Farhan Akhtar movie has disappointed me - whether he stars in it or directs it. I am not claiming that he makes great movies - I am merely agreeing that his films are funny, intelligent and definitely entertaining.

The Hrithik-Farhan-Abhay trio have done a fabulous job. Incidentally, Katrina too is associated with a movie that makes more sense than all her prior films put-together. There are many instances in the movie where it appears that the actors are being themselves rather than actually acting - which is also the underlying theme of the movie. Be yourself and follow your heart, wherever you go, whatever you do.

Credit should be given to director Zoya Akhtar. This movie proves that her previous, Luck By Chance (2009) was not just luck. Cinematography and art direction have also been handled well. It was very refreshing to see Indian actors in casual street clothes holidaying in Spain. However, Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy are getting way too repetitive with their tunes, many songs give us a feeling that we have heard them before.

This is a summer movie that will give you what you seek - humor and entertainment. Wouldn't it be really fun if we could go on a nice little vacation and figure out what we want to do in life ? Wish life could be that simple.
