It was a good movie - a mix of emotions, fun and and drama. The movie takes you through the lives of two people. One, is doing very well for himself and is an investment banker. The other, has been struggling to make it big for long. Both have been best friends for 15 years. John is the successful banker and Akki plays the struggler. And this bromance is the crappy part.

However, the presence of Anupam Kher and Chitrangada improves the situation on screen. Anupam Kher once again excels in a comedy role, and is a perfect fit as Deepika Padukone?s dad (who is John?s Girlfriend). Some good punch lines here and there and some smoothness in passing comments from Kher add flavor to the movie.

Chitrangada in the meanwhile, adds the hot and sizzling mix to the movie. You'll love her ?teaching economics? to Akki and that?s surely the best way for men to learn Macro Economics!

There is a lot of confusion in the movie, which I don?t wish to get into. You can watch and enjoy it, but by the end of it it does become a drag. However, it's not as boring as the recent film, Rockstar.
