Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani

I wanted to go for this movie for a very long time and was finally able to watch it today with Geeta. I am writing this post assuming most of my readers have already watched this movie and they would be able to related to what I am saying. In case readers who are yet to see this movie: Beware spoilers ahead.

While the first half of the movie was very good, the second half of the movie became extremely predictable. I would have loved if the movie had ended when Kalki’s vidaai is over and Ranbir is shown leaving the wedding with his camera and bag. The reason I felt the movie should have ended earlier is because there is no harm in two people acknowledging the love they have for each other and yet mature enough to realize that they are both different and want different things in life. And because of the respect they have for each other and their individual dreams, they decide to not be together.  I felt the movie post that was very much stretched and it seemed that the director really wanted Ranbir and Deepika to meet in the end.

The music of the movie is good and can be listened to over and over again. This movie is only about Ranbir and he is simply brilliant. The rest of the characters are good in their parts. Aditya Roy Kapur needs to play something other than a drunkard or he will probably end up getting Drunkard of the Year award.

Overall a decent movie and can be watched once. Die hard Ranbir fans will love this movie.
