The story revolves around Gautam Khanna (Saif Ali Khan), Veronica D'Costa (Deepika Padukone) and Meera Gupta (Diana Penty). Gautam Khanna (Saif Ali Khan) always had a dream to go to London and have a job. His dream is fulfilled and he gets a job. But his mom, Nita (Dimple Kapadia) says that she has to finalize his marriage to a girl and so he has to wait. She finds her perfect 'bahu' in Meera Gupta (Diana Penty). But she does not tell Gautam about this and tells Meera's parents even to not tell Meera. She tells Gautam to take her friend's daughter Meera as she has an assignment in London for 3 days. On the flight, Meera and Gautam befriend each other. In London, Meera has some problems completing her assignment and therefore fails to give it on time.

The apartment scenes shown in 'Daaru Desi' were shot with green screen in background of the apartment set. The city landscape is added digitally in both the scenes when Deepika dances sitting on balcony and Saif is twisting Diana's nose. See more »
In a scene, Gautam is shown dialing a phone number from his iPhone. But when he takes the phone to his ears, the screen doesn't get switched off as it would happen in any iPhone on dialing and bringing it close to ears. See more »
First half is nice and fresh. Second half is the regular Bollywood stuff.
First half of 'Cocktail' : Super fun, 2 Best friends (Deepika and Diana) and a guy (Saif) have fun, joke, do silly stuff, make the audience laugh. Concept looks fresh, Deepika are Saif like each other, live in together, sleep with each other, have fun, neither is interested in a commitment. I thought I could watch this movie over and over again.
Second half : Hopeless, very typical Bollywood Love Triangle. The guy falls for the 'Desi' girl. why?? This could have been a cult movie, with such good looking people who suited their characters so well. The music was fantastic.
Performances : All 3 (Deepika, Saif and Diana) have acted well. Saif was extremely funny at times and no one could have pulled off the character of Veronica as well as Deepika did.
I would have loved the movie if Saif would have fallen for the Deepika (the girl who parties and drink and has fun).
Bollywood is yet to get over the good/Desi girl and bad girl concept.
Its definitely a one time watch.
