Cocktail: No, Thanks!

Its a Cocktail (2012) which is visually seductive (who can get over those luscious locales, tempting DPs-Diana Penty and Deepika Padukone– and a cool Saif Ali Khan) yet after the first sip you realise that  Homi Adajania andImtiaz Ali have fooled you by dishing out the Jurassic formula – wild boy meets the wild girl & the good girl and the wild girl always loses the battle to the sati-savitri (virtuous lady) good girl ! Its one Cocktail you wont regret saying No, Thanks! when offered for the second time!


Proudly marching on the path of pseudo-modernity Gautam displays quintessential  traits of(Indian?) man- lust & share the toothbrush, bedroom & bed of your girl , yet never make up your mind between the tantalizing glamour queen and  divinity personified! Gosh… that man  spent the whole time looking for a book which has the cover of the Playboy magazine and expecting the pages of the book to spell hymns !!

Its a long way to go before the Indian society can call itself truly mature.


Mr. Curious just cannot figure out why Ms. goody-two-shoe wont reveal her waistline! (Remember Saif’s love struck inquisitiveness to Diana in a cozy moment during their vacation sanctioned by mommy Dimple  Kapadia? ) Eureka! Even today a little mystery surrounding a lady never goes unnoticed !!! lol


Love and change go hand in hand, or so we are made to believe: Meera undergoes the transformation process twice, Veronica once and Gautam hmmmm…
Do you think I am reading too much into this piece of entertainment?

Please feel free to lash out or appreciate.
