Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani Movie Review

It is said that the best romance is the one that starts with friendship, now this sounds like something you have heard in the past, right? Ofcourse you have, it's the most common friendship growing into love cliche. The good part however is that Ayan Mukerji, the director, has some how managed to make the best of the cliche and got it to work as well. The movie is much spoken about in recent times and is featuring the ex-couple Ranbir Kapoor & Deepika Padukone on the silver screen. The movie is one big mix of all youth emotions in life and how the characters go through these emotions in life.

Like many youth centric movies, this too is a story of 4 very good friends who are down in the dumps and come back up to make their friendship stronger. To give Ayan some credit, he has made these cliches work and has this conviction which some how manages to make the audience believe in the way he looks at this story line. The problem lies in the predictability of the story, though full marks to the narrative capabilities of Ayan which gets life to the movie over all.

Deepika is doing a good job at being a nerdy Naina Talwar, who is a typical school scholar and is looking for that major change of lifestyle. Ranbir Kapoor plays the role of Bunny to perfection, who is also the best match for Naina and has put in some great work in expressing the character in the movie. The 2 other friends are Avi (Aditya Roy Kapoor) & Aditi (Kalki Koechlin), who also blend in perfectly and put up a solid feeling of the 4 being one unit.

Pritam seems have done a good job with the music since the songs have been catchy and appropriately composed to be up beat. Since the music release, all songs have been doing rounds at party circles and you can't help your feet tap at "Balam Pichkari". :)

As you may have imagined, every one expected a twist in the tale, but this is where Ayan has faltered just that tad bit.

Having said that, the movie is worth watching for the fun ride of 4 friends looking to lose and regain their friendship.
