3.5 Very Good

A probable blockbuster stuff turns average fare. Wake Up Sid! is a movie that you would enjoy with friends and family. Clean and well narrated. The first half of the film is the stealer. In fact the first hour makes you think that you have a extraordinary film coming up. But unfortunately the WHOA gets reduced to a MMMM by the time it's over. From debutant director Ayan Mukerji, this is amazing work, for the film has the look and feel of a seasoned team. Characters are clearly etched and the script holds up to the shades of the story. The only killing part is that the story is toooo regular to make you fancy things. Spoilt son, Filthy rich, Lost in life, Fails exams, Is thrown out from home, Hates father's business, Takes up Photography, Falls in love etc.... Not even by a long shot is this new or unheard. But the texture of the film is fresh.
