Varun Dhawan, Ileana D'Cruz, Nargis Fakhri
Shobha Kapoor, Ekta Kapoor, Alpana Mishra
When you have the promising newcomer Varun Dhawan working under his dad, David Dhawan, your interest is bound to peak. Throw into the mix a lot of abs flaunting and two scantily clad women, namely, Ileana D’Cruz and Nargis Fakhri, and you have trailers that the youth are attracted to. But does David Dhawan still work?
Seenu, played by Varun Dhawan, is horrible in school. He takes on a challenge to become enrolled in university – similar to the situation of many of his friends, who he is constantly compared to. At university, Seenu falls in love with Sunaina, played by Ileana D’Cruz, who is also being eyed by Angad, played by Arunoday Singh. Throw into the mix the daughter of a big time gangster, Ayesha, played by Nargis Fakhi, who falls in love with Seenu after he saves her life. How does Seenu figure out his situation?
It’s pretty obvious this is a “leave your brains at home” kind of film. David Dhawan films are almost always a guaranteed laugh riot and this one lives up to some of its promises. This film keeps you amused almost throughout the film, especially if you have been a fan of David Dhawan’s style of cinema. The idea is to keep yourself completely engrossed in the film’s proceedings. Do not question logic because there is none.
Varun Dhawan is the complete package. He can dance, flaunt his abs, do action, and he can act. You cannot ask him to do any more than he did for his film. His energy level and enthusiasm is at a level that hugely exceeds expectations. Nargis Fakhri is getting better in each film. Ileana D’Cruz is quite good in the film, and looks quite good with Varun. Anupam Kher is a laugh riot, as usual. Arunoday Singh is a surprise revelation – he is quite good at comedy. Rajpal Yadav delivers as required.
Watch this film to relive some classic David Dhawan moments from the past in a new package – for that reason alone, it is a must-watch (just bear with the excessive time length and sometimes, over-the-top sequences).
