The much awaited Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani didn't quite match my expectations. Honestly, I expected a more polished story from Ayan Mukherji who had given us a thoughtful and feel-good coming-of-age film like Wake Up Sid earlier.
YJHD seems like a rehash of the classic rom-com Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge in more ways than one. Here too, you have a hero who is a spoilt brat and wants to enjoy life to the fullest and a heroine who is a book- a-holic and obeys her parents to death. They decide to travel across the country with friends and end up falling in love with each other just at the moment when they have to go back to their respective homes.
While the first half is pretty much told from the perspective of the heroine, the second half focuses more on the hero's life. What Ayan Mukherji succeeds at is how he neatly etched the four characters of Ranbir Kapoor, Deepika, Aditya Roy Kapur and Kalki Koechlin. You can see sparks of brilliance in several scenes, especially when Ranbir's friends find out about his scholarship. But, that alone is not enough for making a great film. The film seems quite boring at certain points. Thankfully, Pritam's music succeeds in elevating our moods and is quite hummable. And Ayan has also captured some terrific locations which add beauty to the film.
As mentioned earlier, I wanted a much more diligent film from a talented director of Ayan's caliber. The film might cater to teenagers and youths who want a breath of fresh air after a hackneyed week. But the film won't find any takers in serious film critics.
