Calling out to all the free spirits out there....

Generation X....

What China calls the ME generation....

The commitment phobic generation.....

This is a film made for you.....

For the lovers of pure unadulterated romance and even purer physical intimacy with no strings attached.....

And who else would dare to make it other than Yash Raj films---the unquestioned Badshahs of romance.....

But even they had to wait for Yash Chopra to fade away to make such a film---maybe , just maybe , the old man would have disapproved.....

For he belonged to the 20th century.....

And this is love of the 21st century.....

But some smart alec thought of mocking the audience and calling it '' Shuddh desi romance ''( pure Indian love ).....

Or maybe that's the director's way of telling us to take the issue lightly.....

For it's not a film that discusses the issue of live in relationships seriously.....

Rather it takes an entertaining take on them.....

And keeps you interested throughout.....

Mind you---the budget of the film must be low....

For there are no foreign locations....

No big and posh sets.....

Only the camera doing close ups on the characters as they talk....

But the ones who are doing the talking are lively people.....

Lively and interesting too.....

For they lead interesting lives....

Interesting things we dreamt in our youth....

Like sex without marriage....

Endless mouth to mouth kissing---that too filmed so seamlessly and done so effortlessly that it doesn't feel vulgar at all....

And all this acted out by all the actors in top class fashion....

With those actors acting in a film peopled with some real cool characters....

Waaaay cool...uber cool....

There's Parineeti Chopra---she's lost count of her boyfriends in the midst of her cigarettes , though she remembers the one whose child she had to abort....

And there's Sushant Singh---he hears about the multiple boyfriends and sees her smoking and promptly decides to ditch the girl he is going to marry , to get hitched ( but without marriage ) to Parineeti.....Sooooo coool....

And when they finally decide to marry each other and arrive at the marriage venue , they are so afraid of commitment that flee from there and from each other !!

Boy !! Are things really cool or are they getting cold out there.....??

Enter Vaani Kapoor---the girl Sushant ditched for Parineeti to hotten up the cool atmosphere by her mesmerising beauty....

You soak in her beauty and wonder why Sushant decided to ditch her at all....

And you are not alone in doing so---for Sushant wonders the same.....

She wants revenge for Sushant's ditching by making him pine for her and dance to her tune.....

And her obliges her....who wouldn't , considering her ravishing looks ??

But fate has destined for Sushant's and Parineeti's paths to cross again....

When they do cross , who will choose whom ??

And who will be the loser ??

Relax....No need to get vexed up on this issue.....

For this is the new generation....

All that this generation needs to forget someone is a cool or rather chilled drink....Coke anyone ??

Amidst all this Yash Raj films stays true to it's old habit of showing shaadis and shows several shaadi baraat sequences even though many of the characters in the film don't believe in the concept of shaadi at all---this is done by conveniently showing the lead characters as ready for hire baraatis who have to constantly attend shaadis as part of their profession....

The film does not do any in depth discussion of the issue of live in relationships at all , and is light hearted all the way.....

That's the way I like it too.....

Verdict---some solid timepass .
