     Student of The Year: Romancing The Brawn… 19 October, 2013 On Junglee.com
    First of all, I was surprised at dreadful reviews this film received.
    Karan Johar (KJ) never intended this to be a path-breaking film.
    (If you want serious see “The Lunchbox”)
    Having said that, I was, too, was put off by the reviews and it was only when my niece dragged me to the cinema, citing the film as “awesome” that I decided to go: reluctantly.
    By interval, after endless ranting of my niece’s “I told you so”s, I confessed to her, that I was wrong and was silently cursing the so called critics who panned the film.
    Subsequently, I bought a Blu ray of this film that is demo material (especially the song “Radha”) for a Hi definition TV with a brilliant surround sound.
    KJ laughed all the way to the bank when the film sans stars went on to become Bollywood’s second biggest grosser with unknown stars, ever.
    (Ashique-2 is the highest non-star grosser)
    Alia Bhatt has been criticised as coming out as too arrogant but in this film it’s an asset.
    That’s the way she is and maybe, deliberately chosen just for that look (of course being Mahesh Bhatt's daughter must have helped) but she is easy on the eyes.
    Much has been said about Varun Dhawan and Siddhartha Malhotra (for the first half an hour both dudes looked the same to me) and I have a feeling they will go the John Abraham way: roles that focus on the physique, looking good and little else.
    The main story is about friend turned foes and in love with a same girl (how original) but what matters here is the presentation: with larger than life classrooms, fast cars, good looking girls and boys with toned bodies, incredible locations, designer clothing and even the tears the stars shed are designer.
    Add a gay Dean Rishi Kapoor who is on a deathbed that motivates all his previous students to collect together to sort out any misunderstanding that they may have had in the past.
    In between, KJ sensitively touches the topics of friendships, family relationships, campus competitions and petty jealousies.
    Against all logic, the package works.
    If you have been following interviews of KJ like I have, he probably lived his college life, again, through the roles of the two heroes by this film: the life that he could not have as he was grossly obese (120 kgs) until the age of 26 (reflected in the character of Boman Irani’s son: Kayoze)
    In Kayoze’s outburst at the end (which many found confusing) Karan Johar has tried to reflect what he must have gone through at that age and the film is a slap to all those who wrote him off because of his weight.
    Recommended for the visual panache, the music and the picturisation of the songs.

  2.  Typical KJo Movie 7 October, 2013 On Junglee.com
    Fast cars, Glamorous clothes, beautiful faces, Big canvas. All the ingredients of a typical KJo movie.

    Story revolves around 3 characters Siddharth, Varun and Alia and their college life which includes romance, competition, bonding, bickering, love-hate everything in dollops.

    the film takes you to a make- believe world in which all the students in the college come in designer clothes and the principal is "Gay". A common feature of recent KJo movies.

    As a director KJo does a decent job with newcomers. However, something more substantial was expected of him after My name is Khan. He goes into his comfort zone this time and does a nice job.

    Among the actors Siddharth Malhotra's character has the maximum shades and he doesn't dissapoint. He manages emotion and Romance with ease. A guy to watch out for.

    Varun Dhawan is OK as a beginner. But with competition rising in terms of Ranveer, Ranbir he needs to go a long way to prove his mettle as an actor,

    Alia plays the cute girl with aplomb. She is cute as well as sassy. She looks beautiful in every frame.

  3.  Entertaining & nice movie for those who are NOT looking for a strong and intense storyline 29 December, 2013 On Junglee.com
    This movie is about three college students, two of them are brats and rich with wardrobe full of Jimmy Choo and all, the other is not so wealthy and well-off but has the flame and yearning to become successful and rich one day.
    This is just the, well, 'storyline'. then throw in the occasional studying, humour and all that stuff with some budding romance and short skirts. Then add the adopted 'wannabe' proms from the western culture with more short skirts.
    Basically, the movie is about friendship and its durability and loyalty when confronted with competition (take the hint: of all sorts)
    What I like about the movie was the sidekicks who were actually acting better than the newbies cast and played a major role in building up of the movie and humour.
    (with more short skirts)
    And I can't come up with more 'likes'
    The moment much awaited....*drumroll*...
    SO, what I disliked was well who wears short dresses and skirts with bulging necks in college.
    Then the main cast i.e Siddhart, Alia and Varun did NOT know how to act, I can still give some credit to Varun.
    Then. the lack of studying.
    and MORE SHORT SKIRTS!!!
    I recommend it if you don't have anything sensible to watch...
    So, the main thing to root for in the film is: Who wins the Student Of The year Trophy and well, who gets the girl.
    Anyway, If you did like it, there's no harm done, they are just my views.

  4.  One time watch 3 March, 2014 On Junglee.com
    If you want to pass your time and see some romantic bollywood masala with a little bit of friendship and good songs,then you must watch this movie.This movie is a story of few students of school which doesn;t looks like a school or even a college.Movie has good looking guys and girls that raises your expectations that you will also get a chance to see such beautiies when you ll get into a good college but that isn't true.Movie has good songs and almost all lead star cast is of new comers but under the supervision of Karan johar the students performed pretty well.When asked from girls and others,many of them like Siddharth Malhotra but when looked from the angle of acting and dancing,Varun Dhawan does pretty well.Alia Bhatt is an over-actor who doesn't even have much to act for in the movie.Movie will not disappoint you but neither it will leave you with an effect "what a movie man!!".Simply a one time watch.

  5.  Hmmmm 26 December, 2013 On Junglee.com
    This movie is the best motivational movie for the students...People who are rich will not know the value of studying until they need a push....Hero might be poor, as they say he will be best in everything..But shouldn't have shown he is gud at everything...
    Movie is kinda entertaining and also brings back the memories of people who used to be in schools and collages, about their days back in time...

  8.  glamour and newbies 19 December, 2013 On Junglee.com
    with three new actors entering the bollywood , its a glamorous and typical bollywood movie. movie is about the competition everyone faces in their college days which makes friends convert into foes.
    filled with songs which are viral and choreographed in a stylish way, this film will remind of kuch kuch hota hain.

  9.  Just okay 18 January, 2014 On Junglee.com
    You can watch the movie and enjoy the new faces on the screen. It has good music, songs are very romantic . But movie doesnt have much story, it is totally based on student life so definitely for those who want to revive back their college memories. Aalia's acting is good overall as a newbie.

  8.  GOOD MOVIE FOR YOUTHS..
    Karan Johar did a very good job with the newcomers. All the leading stars of this movie were a debudant. But in spite of that you will not be able to find their inexperience in acting. This one is very good movie for the youths. ?Others may also enjoy this one. Published 3 years ago by Arindam On Junglee.com
