CITYHYD’S COCKTAIL MOVIE REVIEW
Yo !! Friday night and how can we forget to have the “Cocktail”…. Well, jokes apart, the movie Cocktail has finally released today. After all the hype and o-la-la over the two sexy lead ladies in the movie, Deepika Padukone and Diana Penty, Cocktail is on-air. As the name suggest, Cocktail is an entertaining mix of stories of three characters played by Saif Ali Khan, Deepika Padukone and Diana Penty.
The Storyline of Cocktail Movie:
The plot of the movie starts from London where Gautam Kapoor (Saif Ali Khan) lives and works. Gautam is a consummate and compulsive flirt, which is not a surprise considering Saif has essayed similar roles in movies such as Hum Tum and Love Aaj Kal previously. Dimple Kapadia plays Gautam’s mother, who affectionately calls him “Gutlu” in the movie. Boman Irani plays Gautam’s maternal uncle, Tinku, who is married to an English woman. Diana Penty plays Meera, a sweet innocent lady, who gets dumped by her husband Kunal, played by Randeep Hooda. Gautam runs into Meera, a demure Indian girl on her first visit to London at the airport and tries to impress her in order to get her attention and take her out for dinner, but Saif soon backs off when she tells him that she is married !!
And, then finally, enters the most wanted hottie Veronica, played by Deepika Padukone, who’s never been seen in such a glamorous avatar in any of her movies before. Veronica meets a weeping Meera, who moves into her London apartment, and though poles apart, the two turn into best buddies. Later Gautam, who gets a dream job in London, too moves in with them, under the same roof. The three different characters share an amazing friendship till love complicates things. Then starts the emotional twist in the movie, the friends get distort and separate from each other….Well, we are not going to reveal any further, for that you have got to watch the movie 😉
Performances in the movie Cocktail:
In terms of performances, all three lead actors have done a tremendous job. Saif Ali Khan famous for playing flirtatious roles once again pulls of a beauty in Cocktail and does a complete justice to his Casanova image. Saif looked at ease with his dialogue deliveries and comical frames and flamboyantly performed in the Cocktail. Deepika Padukone pulls her top notch wild-glam-doll performance in the Cocktail. She plays a carefree rich party girl, who falls in love with Gautam (Saif) in the movie. Deepika’s never revealed super-sexy avatar will most certainly get the eye-balls rolling. Deepika as Veronica in the film, is seen in a full hip and happening mood throughout. The much talked about new-comer, Diana Penty, does a fair job in a typical desi girl’s role who is conservative and slightly under-confident. Diana looks pretty in traditional Indian clothing throughout the film. Dimple and Boman plays their parts well and add great comical moments in the movie. Overall, all actors have done fair justice to their characters and did a brilliant job.
The Verdict of Cocktail:
Cocktail’s music became famous the day it was released over the internet. With super cool tracks such as Main Sharabi, Desi Daru and Tum Hi Ho Bandhu, Cocktail has a youthful and vibrant music. Undoubtedly, the music of Cocktail is simple “WOW”, which will certainly pull a lot of audiences to the theaters. The movie is shot at London (UK) and Cape Town (South Africa), the scenes of the film are nicely pictured with eye glittering backgrounds. Despite delivering superb performances by actors in the movie, the Cocktail slows down in the second half of the movie with a lot of emotional drama. Typical in all Imitiaz Ali movies, the overwhelming scenes just halts the movie a bit. If you are a Deepika Padukone fan, you simply can’t miss hot and sizzling Dippy in the movie. Overall , Cocktail is a decent Romantic-Comedy film, and most of the audiences will like it, in short, Cocktail is Paisa Vasoool !!
CITYHYD Recommendation: 4 Stars – Go and Watch it !!
