Cocktail….

Cocktail –  A Cocktail is an alcoholic mixed drink that contains two or more ingredients-at least one of the ingredients must be a “spirit”. Errrr…. Sorry I got carried away with this, as it was the literal meaning of the word Cocktail as suggested by Google which I think, the makers of this movie took too seriously.

 Cocktail the movie – well a heterogeneous concoction of fun, songs, smiles, sobs & spirit. This Homi Adajania flick is very common blend of Friendship turned into a Love triangle where a girl loves a boy, but the boy does not love that girl, instead the boy loves the girl’s best friend who in-turn does not love him back. Tangled relationships knotted with funny moments and wonderful music is the gist of this flick.

Apart from catchy songs & super sexy locations, the film has little to show off. Screenplay remains patchy throughout, with sluggish-witty-sluggish-touching-sluggish moments. Treatment of the ancient Love-Triangle plot is modern and Homi has effortlessly managed to sync “Friends with Benefits” “No Strings attached” kind of outlawed relationships, obviously in Indian Society, and it definitely strikes a chord with contemporary viewers.

Acting Department – Saif Ali Khan is incredible as Gautam, a happy go lucky kind of chronic flirt with a penchant to single girls and cheesy pick-up lines, mommy’s son though.  Diana Penty aka Meera is a typical Desi who dons long salwar kameez n dupatta in London as well. She is fresh n convincing in her lonely Hindustani girl, stranded in Firang-land character. It is Deepika Smokinhottt Padukone who steals the show. This long legged sultry siren plays rich n impulsive Veronica with heart of gold who is archetypal party animal. Dimple Kapadia & Boman Irani are seasoned actors and their performances easily establish this fact. Randeep Hooda is wasted as Kunal.

Two’s company, Is three a crowd ? Well, definitely No, if you plan to spend a weekend over “Cocktail”….
