Cocktail- Movie Review


I can’t tell you how much I was looking forward to watching Cocktail ever since I saw the trailer. Chick flick and all that jazz. So as soon as I got done with school, I ran to watch the movie and here’s what I thought of it.

The story is about Gautam (fun, flirtacious, outgoing), Veronica ( loud, attention-seeking, outspoken) and Meera (cultured, boring, compassionate). So, Gautam and Veronica hit it off instantly and start dating but then Meera gets into the picture and things get complicated between the three of them.

In a way, the main plot is a lot like Dil to pagal hai- Gautam- Shahrukh, Meera- Madhuri, Veronica- Karishma. What I mean is there is nothing unique about the story. Its quite predictable. The screenplay is not up to the mark because of which the entire story starts falling down rapidly even though the look entices you and makes you want to watch the entire film. Superb styling and cinematography- very rich. The direction and editing is a bit disconnected because of which there’s no proper flow and it gets you a little restless, especially in the second half of the movie.

I love how Deepika Padukone is styled in terms of costumes, hair, etc. She totally looks the character even though her personality doesn’t allow her to project that in the best possible way. I thought Diana Penty was really boring. She was seedhi-saadhi  and looks beautiful which she had to be but there’s no charm in her which would draw you to her. Saif was his usual self, subtly funny and charming but nothing different from his earlier roles.

Pritam has done a good job with regard to the music yet again. Groovy numbers and Kavita Seth’s voice in ‘Tumhi ho bandhu’ is just too good! I love how the verses have been sung by her! I also like ‘Daaru Desi’ and the songs they played in the nightclub scenes.

So yes, I am quite disappointed with Cocktail. I’d suggest you wait for it to come on some TV channel or just watch it on Dvd.

Rating– 2.5/5
