Mini Review – Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani
After taking us to an amazing journey of a college pass out (actualy TY failed :P) student (wake up sid) , director Ayan Mukherjee is back with another journey of 4 friends and their lives with “Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani” . Its takes you to various places and walks of life filled with high emotions.
Actually there is very less story story thing, its more of a journey of an individual and his friends. The movie is shot amazingly (you cannot miss the scenes shot at Manali and Udaipur , good work by the cinematography team ☺ ) 1st half is very good, vibrant and full of joy, however, 2nd half is bit dry and draggy at places (I told you, less story story here 😛 ) Music is excellent , Right from Balam pichakri to Kabira to delhiwali girlfriend without missing Subhanallah,Illahi, Badtameez dil & Ghaghra (full marks to Vishal-Shekar and I loved the arijit singh wala Kabira more 😛 ) Ranbir Kapoor is excellent (he does it every time) , Deepika is very good (thank god, no party girl role for her this time ) , Aditya Roy Kapoor is good (seems like he is straight from Aashiqui 2 sets, sab same to same, look, drinking habits etc. etc.) Kalki is very sweet and has done a good job.
Direction is good but somehow, misses the story part. Emotions are very well portrayed and will make you nostalgic at certain scenes. Visually the movie looks excellent (Right from Styling, Sets & Colors used in the scenes .. ekdum baap hai!!!)
So, Overall 3 stars from me. You can do watch this once with your gang of friends.
One thing you surely cannot miss, Madhuri Dixit in an item number… Simply amazing.. !!!!
