Deepika is the rich wild child , the emotionally raw Veronica. She's flash and cash all the way but has a soft spot under her party girl facade . One night she runs into a bathroom after boozing it up too much and happens to meet a beautiful traditional Hindi girl Meera (Diana) who's crying her eyes out. She just found out that the arranged marriage she thought she was part of was real only on paper and she has been victimized by a total rat (extended cameo in two sections of the movie played by Randeep Hooda) . The marriage was a sham hoax. When she showed up in London because he didn't send for her , she finds he married her for her dowry money . He tells her to get lost she can file for married visa and he will divorce her later but he spent her money. After hearing this tale Veronica (Deepika) basically takes her home to help her out until she get's settled in and helps her to slowly change into a more confident person. They become best friends and room mates.
Enter Saif who meets and start a Friends with Benefits relationship with Veronica and a somewhat bumpy friendship with Diana who is his total opposite. They annoy each other in constant little ways but get along for Veronica's sake. One day when his mom shows up with BRIDE ON THE BRAIN , he freaks and tells his mom (Dimple) it's Diana's traditional hindi character that he's in a relationship with not Veronica and that he's going to marry her (hilarious scene you have to see this ).Read more ›
While in the bathroom at a department store, Meera meets party girl Veronica (Deepika Padukone) who sees Meera weeping and decides to help her. Veronica takes Meera to her apartment and explains that her estranged father sends her a large amount through cheque every month, which helps Veronica enjoy the life of a rich socialite. One night, Veronica takes Meera to a nightclub, where they run into Gautam. At the club, Gautam and Veronica dances intimately and make out. The next morning, after an interview, Meera comes home to find Gautam on the couch. She learns that Gautam and Veronica slept together the previous night.
Soon, Gautam moves in with Veronica and Meera, continuing his "no strings attached" relationship with Veronica. Although Meera initially dislikes him, she eventually accepts him, and the three become best friends. Things get complicated when Gautam's mother (Dimple Kapadia) shows up, wanting to know if Gautam has found the girl he wants to marry. He lies to his mother and says that he is in a relationship with Meera because she is the "Ideal Indian girl" who would meet his mother's approval. During this charade, Gautam and Meera end up falling in love.Read more ›
Having said all that, the acting was good in this movie. That is never an issue when Saif and Deepika are in a movie. I'm not familiar with Diana Penty but I enjoyed her performance. The plot was not one that is new to Bollywood so I knew the ending at the beginning. The songs were OK. Nothing really stuck out for me. Oh, for the days of Salaam Namaste, Hum Tum, or Parineeta. Anyway, it wasn't a waste of time and I feel many will enjoy it.

It is a very contemporary movie. Up to date. Great performance from every actor. I like the chemistry between Deepika and Saif in all the movies they have made. I like the songs.Published on July 16, 2013 by Patricia
This is a dull, cliched Disco-euphoric youth rom com, acted by 30 to 40 year olds who try way too hard to look westernized and euphorized. Read morePublished on February 27, 2013 by HansBlog
