A sequel to 2011 flick Pyaar ka Punchnama and continuing on the same note this movie lived up to the expectations of its preceder. A more mature and less misogynist (in comparison to its preceder) take on modern romantic relationships is depicted through the lives of three friends cum roommates and their love interests. The actors are well casted, the comic timing is spot on, the dialogues are unerring and who can forget Gogo’s seven minute long monologue. With a 7.3 rating from IMDB it is anything but boring. Check out the famous ‘Happy Woman is a Myth’ speech from its preceder: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1BA9MRXWR8g

It is rare for a movie especially in Bollywood to have everything at once. Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani is similar to that elite group of students in a class who are good at everything.

It follows the life of Kabir Thappar a.k.a Bunny (Ranbir Kapoor) who does not want to live a conventional life but wants to live every single day to the fullest.

On the note of Aamir Khan here is another movie with him essaying the titular role of Mahavir Singh Phoghat father/coach who trained his two daughters Geeta Phogat (Fatima Sana Sheikh) and Babita Kumari (Sanya Malhotra) in wrestling with the former winning Gold medal at the 2010 Commonwealth Games and becoming the first ever Indian female to do so and the latter winning a Silver medal in wrestling at 2014 Commonwealth Games. It is a film that features sports in its purest form. Director Nitesh Tiwari does not topple from conveying his message in the midst of a robust story. In the midst of the entire hustle bustle it is nothing but natural to lose focus and if you are one of those people then give this one a watch and if you already have then give it another watch because it deserves it.
