Trivia

Deepika Padukone was given the first choice of playing Meera or Veronica. She chose the latter because Meera's character was similar to her earlier character Meera in Love Aaj Kal. Later Diana Penty got Meera's role. Interestingly, earlier in their modeling career, Diana had replaced Deepika as Maybelline's brand ambassador. See more »

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 »

Don't over looks this great flick
5 December 2012 | by daudlatif-amoonSee all my reviews

The only good movie in the Indian cinema this year! Either Indian don't know what a good movie is or they just want the Body Guard or Rowdy Rathor crap (which I haven't even see, but my intellect tell they were crap). That being said, the major major epic element in this movie was Strong Story Line!! There are many movie released with shitty story line & for a movie to transcend a Strong Stoy Line is a must. Cocktail's script even made the new comer, Diana Penty, look like a great diva (she was the bomb in the movie). I have stopped watching a lot of Indian movies, because I know it's going to be crap & I was intrigued for writing this review because of the rating/reviews others had posted, which was is a total unjust towards a great piece piece of art. That being said I would say watch the movie, albeit it's not in the theaters anymore. I watched it twice in theaters & for me two watch a movie second time is pretty rare, unless I know I'll be getting my bucks worth.
