Disaster of the year
20 October 2012 | by ypuskinsanSee all my reviews

Student of the year. Or, Disaster of the year.

I am still in shock trying to recover from the fact that this crap is directed by Karan johar, the same director who made one of the legendary in bollywood "Kuch Kuch hota hai". I am observing all the movies directed by Karan Johar. Usually we say with experience comes perfection, but in his case we see less and less perfection and more blunders as he directs more. But with this movie he reach his limit. The Film board should strip him of his directing license.

Yes, the film might do good in box office. But the sole credit goes to the new debutantes and Karan Johar's past fame.

Here is my review

Script(Story) - there was none, Directing - I would like to believe there was no director, Editing - A series of disastrous clips glued together, Acting - Okay, Songs - Great, Screenplay - Mildly Okay, Choreography - Okay, Climax - I didn't get any orgasm

What you get out the movie?

You get to watch two gorgeous hunks fighting, their bromance and one tag-along beauty doing all sorts nonsense.
