Not at all made for unintellectual viewers.Intensified.Exemplary.
19 November 2011 | by vms175See all my reviews

Pros:

Abrupt start and unfinished end,always catchy!

Love,attraction,passion,pain,loss,destruction-everything in a pack.

Movie includes flashbacks and frames so nicely arranged,that story always remains on track and with ease.

Supporting casts are so in script,no any distraction or out of track leads.

Raw footage beautifies the movie,editing is nicely done and skipped.

Ranbir-Nargis chemistry is uncommonly beautiful.

Songs are sung outstandingly by Mohit Chauhan and performed equally well by Ranbir.Made for each other duo.

Lyrics are inseparable from situation,really well written.

Cons:

Nargis is overwhelmingly beautiful but utterly noob while acting.

---------

Not many directors could have justified the script like Imtiaz Ali.

Music couldn't have been better than by the Academy award winner A.R.Rehman,it takes you to out of world.

and Ranbir Kapoor,real rockstar from the movie has shown that,he is ready to make the bollywood biggies insecure.

Outstanding movie!!!above the average of bollywood.
