Dil Chahta Hain meets Jhankaar Beats
Ode to Dil Chahta Hain::

√ Farhan Akhtar plays an extended version of Akash.

√ Arjun Rampal reprises Sid.

√ Turn Dimple Kapadia into a male character and add them into a trio – voila, you have DCH of four!

√ The misunderstanding/ breakup.

√ The final moments before the credits rolls.

√ The past narrated in flashback.

Well, one should appreciate the makers were honest to admit publicly that the movie was DCH Part Deux.

Performances::

√ Farhan Akhtar:: He doesn't falter a bit and delivers an eye-opener performance in terms of the subtle nuances and body language he bring in. Of course, his distinct voice is his his greatest asset. Hindsight, he should have done "Lucky" in Main Hoon Na, at least the role would have been more memorable.

√ Arjun Rampal:: Probably first time one would take notice of his performance as it is very matured and restrained. Lets hope it does what DCH did to Akshaye Khanna.

√ Purab Kohli, Luke Kenny & Shahana Goswami:: Should capitalise on the success of the movie to get a strong foothold in Bollywood. Good performances otherwise.

√ Prachi Desai is good in her "Miss Goody Two Shoes" role. BTW – why was her character a bit pushy towards male bonding?

√ Koel Purie is as usual OK.

Too many flashbacks hinder the narrative. Should have been confined to a single one.

The songs would take sometime to catch on as they belong to Rock genre and not the usual run-out-of mill.

The protagonists passion for music give you a feel of Jhankaar Beats and so does the climax.

The movie is handled extremely well on all technical fronts. A very well made movie. Looking forward your next outing Gattu Kapoor!

PS: Javed Saab, does the usage of "Darling" refer to a previous experience of your in the Bollywood?
