Unsatisfactory and Displeasing!
4 October 2013 | by iamggnSee all my reviews

The movie disappoints. Considering Ranbir Kapoor's recent movies, this one was much anticipated. But, it turned out to be a complete let down. The first half is watchable, it has some content. But, the scenes pictured post interval were just unbearable. The climax was totally bizarre, expressed in the lamest way. The action scenes were unconditionally unreal. The story was unconventional as most of the Bollywood flicks in recent times. There are some funny sequences in the first half which save the movie from being a complete tiresome and humdrum.

In spite of having big names in the list of actors, the movie failed to create an impression. The characters of Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Kapoor were overplayed which didn't at all seem to be pleasant. Debutant actress, Pallavi Sharda, who played the lead role opposite Ranbir Kapoor, gave a mediocre acting performance but she was thoroughly energetic as a dancer. All the acts featuring her were absolutely stupendous. Ranbir Kapoor, once again, was eloquent and impassioned with his acting, but couldn't develop the required amount of interest among the viewers. Amitosh Nagpal in a supporting role was quite appreciable. Javed Jaffrey plays the bad guy, a funny bad guy who manages to pull out a moderate performance.

The music was below average. The songs could've been a lot more enthralling and pleasurable. There have been songs put within every 30 minutes of the total run time, which was unnecessary.

Taking everything into consideration, the movie was an over dramatized exhibition of an ordinary romantic comedy.
