Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani – In Brief:
Ayan Mukerji made a scintillating debut with the coming-of-age drama Wake Up Sid in 2009. With Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, the writer-director sticks to the 'coming-of-age' theme. The film revolves around how four fairly different individuals (Bunny, Avi, Aditi and Naina) deal with friendship, love, success, failure and consequently, life!
Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani – Verdict:
Buddy comedy, coming-of-age drama, travel adventure, marriage extravaganza, familial melodrama and multiple love triangles - Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani mixes up too many elements. There are quite a few sparkling moments in the film. The equations between several characters have been showcased brilliantly. However, owing to some implausible side-plots and the never-ending-length, the film leaves a lot to be desired.
Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani – Short Plot:
3 friends Bunny (Ranbir Kapoor), Avi (Aditya Roy Kapur) and Aditi (Kalki Koechlin) set off on a trip to Manali, expecting a life-changing experience. Bunny is a middle-class boy who doesn't want to lead his life in the conventional way. In his words, Main daudna chahta hoon, udna chaahta hoon, girna chahta hoon. The effervescent Bunny wants to travel the world, and wants every day in his life to be dramatic and eventful.
Avi is a sentimental (and temperamental) guy, who depends too much on his best friend Bunny. The guy has no focus in life, and cannot handle either alcohol or money.
