" Life is short ... live every moment until you regret it " . Yeh Jawani Hain Dewani is all about friendship , adventure , fun and love celebrating each and every instance that will make you feel alive. The film was close to all these ... however it was the loose screenplay in the later part which plays the spoil-sport.
Yeh Jawani Hain Dewani brings you different set of people - A young , energetic , travel-enthusiasts who wants to make big in life, a studious-book worm who is sick of her life and wants to enjoy her life, an alcoholic-drug smitten gamblers who is wasting his life and a cool- rcok chic who is in a one-sided relationship. They all come together in one adventurous trip that will change their life forever.
From the director of critically acclaimed WAKE-UP SID , Ayan Mukherji chooses a very different subject but falls into same old bollywood melodrama which we have witnessed so many times before. The first half begins with a bang and has routine song-drama with few hilarious moments but it is the second half which blocks the movement and goes in for a toss. Screenplay is average. Dialogues are decent at time otherwise repetitive. Art direction is awesome ( from the house of Karan Johar), Cinematography is eye-catching. Songs are just about average and nothing much to talk about. It is Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone who steals the show with their engrossing chemistry. i would not say it their break-through performance but it is good enough to pull out the movie from falling into pit. Aditya Roy Kapur goes over the top. Kalki Koechin is superb as Aditi.
Yeh Jawani Hain Deewani does not live upto the hype surrounding it. All glitters are not gold. Above average 2.75/5
