The movie did not get very good reviews, but I decided to watch it none-the-less.
Interestingly, I found it more interesting than 3 idiots! *
I liked the overall theme, and loved Ranbir Kapoor in the film. And oh, the choice of songs at parties - 'Mai ek disco, tu ek disco, duniya hai ek disco... Disco '82!!!' Dill khush ho gaya ;) Ofcourse, the second half gets way too preachy and simply ruins the movie... But if you can ignore the stupidity of the second half, you might just like the movie.
Ranbir Kapoor is a delight to watch, and the character seems genuine. The grey shades look good on him :) I did not like the sudden preachiness of the movie towards the end, and I so wish Shimit Amin could have thought of a better conclusion than projecting Mr. Puri as a villain, and Ranbir as a morally-pure hero.
*Not that 3 idiots was not good (its a wonderful mirch masala movie), but many of the jokes seemed cliched, and the attitude seemed a little weird - you cannot just walk into an interview, throw your weight around, and expect to get recruited! And you cannot ask your love interest to deliver your sisters child!! Anyway...
