You should watch this film for basically three reasons: Ranbir-Deepika chemistry(which is mind-blowing);Choreography; and RANBIR KAPOOR.

Yes, Ranbir Kapoor is officially now the superstar. He has the looks, the charm and the talent which is necessary for any star. This film relies entirely on his shoulders and he never lets you down. Ayan Mukerji has delivered a blockbuster and that is evident from the box-office collections, it is now the third highest grossing film of all time, with its four week end run of approx. 187 crores and is the milestone for other films to catch up.

Starting off, the film starts off with a dance number from Madhuri Dixit, titled Ghaghara, and it was nice to see Mahuri back in action after a a really long time.
Deepika's character is a shy nerd who always wears her glasses and is depicted as a bookaholic. She tries to get away from her normal boring routine and enlists herself as a participant in a group of travellers for a trek in Manali, the same group which already has Ranbir Kapoor, Aditya Roy Kapoor and Kalki Koechlin as the participants.

This starts as a roller coaster ride for the actors and the first half is paisa-vasool. Somewhere down the road, Bunny aka Ranbir starts liking Deepika but does not tell her because he is going to America to get his degree. Balam Pichkari, a foot-tapping number appears in between and is a full-on fun song.

The second-half is actually a wedding half, quite literally. Kalki Koechlin is going to marry, Kunaal Roy Kapoor who appears in a cameo role. This wedding is the highlight of this film. Ranbir comes to India and dances off brilliantly to a marvellous song Badtameez Dil, which is in fact, Remo D'Souza's masterpiece.

I needn't say about the acting coz' everyone in this film is brilliant. Be it Aditya Roy Kapoor's effortless depiction of a friend gone wrong or be it Kalki's fun character, everyone in this movie, is very good.

The thing which is a major bad in this film is its story and running time. The story is quite starightforward and does not require you indulge your brains in it. The running time is more than 2 hours and you begin to move in your chair uncomfortably after a certain point of time. This, I thought could be bettered.

But, all in all, this film, as I already wrote that, is raking in a lot of moolah and is already a blockbuster.

7 out of 10 stars for this good film.
