User Reviews

 
First half is nice and fresh. Second half is the regular Bollywood stuff.
30 July 2013 | by prianka-guruSee all my reviews

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.
