Only a fool would give it a miss – 3.0/5.0
Earlier planned to be released in March 2013, Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani was postponed for release on May 29, 2013. This is the second movie from the director Ayan Mukherji. Ayan has earned laurels with his directorial debut Wake Up Sid. So this would be the second movie with Ranbir Kapoor and Karan Johar that Ayan is doing. Their pairing had worked good in the past and so ther is hardly any question of Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani being flopped at box office.
Ranbir plays the young ebullient and perky Bunny aka Kabir Thappar. It is hard to believe and would be really thrilling to see Ex couple Ranbir and Deepika acting together on screen. This is a clear sign of open mindedness of the new generation. Deepika plays Geek turned bubbly Naina Talwar.Bunny and Naina are childhood friends with Avi(Aditya Roy Kapoor) and Aditi(Kalki Koechlin).Kalki looks as usual charming and is brilliant actor. Aditya Roy is someone whose screen presence cannot be undermined. Both Kalki and Aditya have pivotal roles in the movie.
The movie also stars Kunal Roy Kapur , Evelyn Sharma, Dolly Ahluwalia( remember Vicky Donor!) Farooq Shaikh and others. Madhuri Dixit does a gust appearance in the song “Ghagra”. You would see the Dhak Dhak Girl matching steps with the new generation chocolate boy Ranbir Kapoor.
Karan Johar has left no stone unturned in YJHD’s publicity and advertising. Recently, RAnbir and Deepika went to Delhi for promoting the movie.
Pritam’s music is foot tappingly awesome . Balam Pichkari and Badtameez Dil are notorious and worth listening again and again.
The Team had been successful to keep the movie’s story underwrap though trailers hints the movie to be a fun filled romantic trip.
Ranbir Kapoor, Ranbir and his ex- Deepika’s chemistry, Pritam’s music, Karan Johar’s Banner and all these elements under the directorial charm of Ayan Mukherji makes the movie quite resplendent and thus only a fool would give a miss to such a joyfull ride.
