Yeah,there's nothing too original in the story, but y'know it's well told with memorable characters, catchy songs and some good acting. There are some refreshing twists, for once the rich boy is not a total ass, nor is the poor boy completely noble. And some of the twists are a bit contrived, but all in all it's a great film and even bears re-watching.
It starts with friends getting together to correct something that went wrong when they were in high school (or was it college?). Karan tells the story through parallel flashbacks of four actors who have gathered in a hotel and are waiting for other friends to arrive. They also show a dying dean of their school. Flashbacks take us to how they met, it shows light competition among themselves, a fashionista playing with emotions of two classmates. It shows one rich kid who is shunned by his father first competing with, then being friend and then breaking away and then competing with an ambitious kid who eventually steals his girlfriend.
Rishi Kapur plays the role of the dean of the school. He also has a crush on the school's soccer coach. I think that was unnecessary and adds nothing to the film except costing it one star in my rating. But good to see our childhood chocolate hero still going. When I told my son about him being a hero, he had the same reaction as I had when my father told about Prem Nath being a hero in his hey days.
The competition for Student of the Year could not be more ridiculous. This fact doesn't seem to have been lost on Karan also who lets the likeable 'Sudo' comment about it during the award ceremony. At first they have an IQ test. Who believes in it now a days?Read more ›
One criticism, someone messed up on the subtitles during a song, the song is to a brunette with large brown almond eyes, but the subtitles read quite differently and incorrect. That only happens in a song, the rest of the subtitles are fine.
Funny, heart warming, a real pleasure and I would watch this one again.
