    Bollywood Movie Review: Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani

    Bunny (Ranbir Kapoor) and Naina (Deepika Padukone) are as different as two people can be – he’s flighty and wants to soar to great heights (even if it means he has to fail sometimes), while she prefers staying grounded and needs to succeed at everything. Yet, their paths cross when Naina, on a whirlwind, joins Bunny and his two friends, Aditi and Avi (Kalki Koechlin and Aditya Roy Kapur) on their vacation. But can two people who want different things find some common ground?

    Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani is, in essence, a mix of some tried-and-tested formulas – there’s a cool-guy-nerd-girl pairing, a fun vacation that will change their lives, a wedding setting to seal the deal. It’s everything you’ve already seen before, put together and repackaged in Ayan Mukerji style – which means that there’s more attention to detail, subtler moments, lighter dialogue and relatable (yet quirky) characters.

    One wishes, then, that Ayan was a little more of himself and a little less of Karan Johar (though how much you can judge a director’s style by one film is also up for debate), because the film is most enjoyable at the parts where Ayan’s touch shows through – those simpler moments, the kind of which made us fall in love with Wake Up Sid. This time around, it’s a much filmier fare, not least because of the excess length that could have been done away with.

    But honestly, at the end of the day, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani is one of those films you don’t want to review, mostly because you don’t want to think too hard about it or pay too much attention to its flaws. Instead, you want to enjoy the film for what it is – and what it is is an entertaining, light-hearted film where everyone acts well and there’s a lead pair that oozes chemistry in every frame. Forget Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone as an off-screen couple – the real magic happens on-screen.

    Sure, it’s formulaic, but it’s a formula that I, personally, enjoy. Between the acting, the fun moments, great music and an item number by Madhuri Dixit (who absolutely kills it), this one is worth the price of the ticket. By the end of it, I was simultaneously smiling over the magic of a sweet love story and lamenting the fact that I may not have a similar, big Bollywood romance.

    Verdict:

    Worth a watch!

      Your review looks more personal than from a critics point of view.Movie has no story. Same old stuff. repetitive. Ranbir is same.all song and dance show! Looks more of a travel guide.

      • Yeah, you’re right – all my reviews are personal opinions anyway, but this one even more so because while I acknowledge that it wasn’t a terrific story, I really did enjoy watching this one. :)

      Movie was crap. Just because it’s an Ayan n Karan film, this is your review. Had it been an Anees Bazmee or Vikram bhatt, it would’ve been another story.

      • Nope, it’s a personal opinion on the film as a whole – I’ve not written it keeping Ayan/Karan in mind. Having said that, they’re obviously all very different types of directors so I don’t think an Anees or Vikram would churn out this kind of movie anyway!

      Hmm do you think it’s the hit of the year so far?

      • Personally it’s amongst those that I most enjoyed watching, but I wouldn’t say it’s the best film across the board. The opening seems good so far, though, so let’s see what happens box office wise!

      Whats the duration of this movie ?

      • Around 2 hours 30-35 minutes, approximately. Definitely a bit longer than it needed to be.

      Finally, a really good movie after ages! This is all one
      could ask for from a Bollywood movie. Good-looking actors and actresses, a brilliant script, dialogues and songs. Not forgetting the stunning sets and locations… even the outfits were wow. Everything was just amazing. Karan Johar and Ayan Mukerji have done a fantastic job! I really salute them for their work. This is a movie one would wish they could have taken part in. I didn’t want this movie to end. The characters play out their roles to another level and one cannot help but relate to each character!

      Go watch it for yourself, its brilliant! Ranbir Kapoor will definitely be
      receiving another award for his superb work!

      “You don’t want to think too hard about it or pay too much attention to its flaws.” …. I love this comment! So true. I loved it and didnt pay any attention for any flaws. This is Bollywood at its best! Cant believe so many hating comments! What more do you want???

      Thank you Miss Malini for keeping it simple. It’s a regular run of the mill breezy romcom with some really talented actors and is enjoyable till it lasts. I wonder why some people don’t understand this. Also, going by the promos, it did not guarantee something that’s any different from a masala flick. Why should one pan it now? Whatever happens to logical thinking!

      I was so disappointed by this movie especially because I had so high expectations about the combo Ranbir K. – Ayan M. I’ve loved Wake Up Sid and YJHD is so far – qualitatively speaking – so much far from the first experience. The story is too silly, full of clichés, the performances are not that good (especially Aditya R. K who was not convincing at all/ Kalki K is average, she was just wasted, I believe she couldn’t do better as the script sucks). Two good things: the musical scenes were entertaining enough and Ranbir was stealing the show (although I was hugely disappointed by his acting).

      I love YOUR personal opinions on a film. Your tendency to always look at the positive aspects is what makes reading your reviews a pleasure. We don’t have to dissect and kill off every movie by constantly pointing out the negatives. Excellent job AS ALWAYS!

      “One wishes, then, that Ayan was a little more of himself and a little less of Karan Johar”

      My thought exactly Ms. Daryanani, a deja vu of Kjo style there :p

      A fun, light-hearted romcom to watch.. thanks Ayan, the cast & whoever make the dialogues :)
