I have really lost count on the number of times I have watched this movie! My husband has not been able to fathom WHY?
Aayan Mukherjee's debut movie has indeed gifted me with a very enjoyable cinematic experience.
Siddharth aka Sid (Ranbir Kapoor) is a third year student enjoying all his time and money after his final exams with his friends. His dad (Anupam Kher) tries to pull him out of his slumber by hiring him as a trainee in his company thinking that Sid would start becoming responsible and work hard to become successful. Sadly, Sid is too immature to understand what he needs to do in life. He has no vision, no goals and considers his parents his greatest enemy.
During this time, he develops friendship with Aisha (Konkana Sen) who has just come from Kolkata in search of a job in her favourite magazine 'Mumbai Mirror' and from here starts their journey towards self-realisation.
The movie deals very beautifully with the emotions of a young naive boy from an affluent family, heavily dependent on "chhotu" (servant) and his dad's credit card, learning to become self-sufficient.
It brings to light the fact that no matter which class of society you come from, there is no shortcut to hard work. There is an interesting chemistry between Sid and Aisha...a clear example of why opposites attract each other.
Acting is marvelous and this cute 'bachcha' character (Ranbir) will convince you to empathize with his changing emotions and you will be happy to forgive him whenever he commits a mistake and does something foolish.
There is substantial dose of humour (if you have the sense!) and all the characters of the film be it Sanju, Soniya , Rosie aunty they all contribute to it.
Film begins it's journey with summer and ends with the freshness of heavy rainfall.
When rain pours every year, scent in the air is so new and fresh.....this movie will bring the same feeling when i watch it next time....
