aYAWN DUKHDARDji- Only a one-film wonder?

Itna gussa kyun aa raha hai
Tune scenes lift karke film mein milaya
Dugna gussa kyun chaa raha hai
Pehle se humne yeh sab kuch hai dekha

I shit you not! There’s so much Cut-Copy-Paste happening in Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, it’s not even funny! πŸ˜€

Firstly, there’s the name β€˜Naina’ lifted straight off from KHNH. As if gouging out the β€˜nainas’ wasn’t enough, Ayan had to go rob even her dark-rimmed spectacles!!! πŸ™„

There’s also that classic DDLJ scene that had us all dying to kick Kajol’s rotund butt :lol:, only to make her run faster and hop aboard that life-changing train to Zurich. Looking at Miss Padukone’s looooooong strides, my giggly gal pals wondered aloud if our desi train that was budging along grudgingly had to do the catching up! πŸ˜† πŸ˜† πŸ˜†

If Aashiqui 2 symbolized Good Friday to Aditya Roy Kapoor’s fans, YJHD represents Easter! The beudah has risen back to life and how! Silly banter caused us to erupt into further noisy giggles. We agreed that he’d signed on YJHD purely because his co-star is named RUM BEER!!!! πŸ˜† πŸ˜† πŸ˜†

As if to placate all the feathers he might have ruffled, Ayaan resorts to blatant plagiarism from his own accomplished directorial debut, Wake Up Sid! 😯 sAYAANa, that’s what the lad is! πŸ˜‰

I thought these lines from one of his songs fitting for the master plagiarist πŸ˜€

Aaj abhi maine tera boycott kar diya
Teri saari harqatein main toh note karu
Tujhe thaane mein le jaake main report karu
πŸ˜†

He should have actually considered christening his second labour of love, β€˜Wake Up Kids!’ His 21-year old kids are surprisingly quite slow on the uptake. For example, Dips, an aspiring doctor, is prejudiced enough to believe that babies can be born to one only after marriage! 😯 There goes KJo’s dream of fathering a biological child as a single parent!!! πŸ˜† πŸ˜† πŸ˜†

The scene expectedly elicited the wrath of a very liberal-minded friend, who was aghast at such regressive dialogues.β€β€˜Made for the Youth by the Youth’ MY FOOT!” she grumbled. β€œMore like, β€˜Made for the Youth by a Ch*#t!’” she thundered. πŸ˜† πŸ˜† πŸ˜†

Moving over to the performances. Boasting of a stellar star cast, YJHD cannot be faulted in this particular department.

I’ve already touched upon Aditya Roy Kapoor’s DAARU…Oooops…SAARU act! πŸ˜€
From alleged Daayan to purported Lesbian, Kalki can rock it all! πŸ˜›

That there can never be smoke without fire is amply proven by the smoldering chemistry between the leads. These two aren’t done with each other, professionally and personally! All I could think of whenever they came on screen was, ‘Dude, go get a room!’ πŸ˜‰

Here’s my proof πŸ˜‰

But good acting + a mediocre story = a forgettable film. I was sorely disappointed that YJHD turned out to be nothing more than a glossy and glorified version of WUS! Only with a generous tadka of romance, bromance and dance! I expected so so so so so much more from Ayaan. Instead, all I could manage was A(big)YAWN! πŸ˜†

Here’s a link to the press conference. It’s so much more entertaining!

BARshitty

The Nightingale of India is totally PISSED! She’s downed one too many of them Kingfishers!!! πŸ˜€ What else would you expect when she’s a permanent fixture on the walls of some shady Goan bar?!? πŸ˜†

Welcome to director Mohit Suri’s tipsy universe! One where legends like Mangesh-KAR must adorn a BAR 😯 and Sunny Leone probably is spouting bhajans at Bhagwaan ke DWAAR! πŸ˜† πŸ˜† πŸ˜†

As you can gauge, the BAR and DAAR(u) are pivotal to the story of A2. Our hero bottles his myriad emotions 😦 After emptying them bottles, of course! πŸ˜› Alcoholics Anonymous’ worst nightmare come true, here’s how:

1. When he’s merry, he reaches out for that glass (or two) of Sherry.
2. When he’s angry, he reaches out for that bottle (or two) of Sangri(a).
3. When in pain, bring out the champagne!
4. The non-controversial wine takes centre-stage when all is fine.
5. Feni has been reserved for times when things get a little whiny.
6. The Breezer thaws him when he turns all sarci and frosty like a Freezer.
7. When he’s all lively and frisky, he must go and spoil it all by unleashing that potent whisky.

Truly the King…er…SING(er) of GOOD TIMES! πŸ˜‰

Rahul, the quintessential owl, parades like a ghoul, πŸ˜€ and on one such nocturnal outing, discovers his protΓ©gΓ©e, belting his hits one after another, so so so mellifluously, she makes him sound like Altaf Raja! πŸ˜† πŸ˜† πŸ˜†

He takes her under his wing and the lovebirds happily sing.

One moment he’s on top and she’s down (dirty minds, Gulshan Grover ishtyle!) πŸ˜›

In the next, she’s the talk of the town and he’s the clown!

Mr. Suri reportedly is a big fan of Titanic and says he’s made a poignant love story πŸ™„ with Rahul as the Desi Jack and Shraddha as the Bharatiya Rose πŸ˜€

Well, Rahul ended up more like JACK DANIELS while Shraddha seemed best suited to endorse Yardley ROSE!!! πŸ˜† πŸ˜† πŸ˜†

I was reminiscing about A2’s predecessor. Here’s how they look when pitted against each other:

So this is Aashiqui 2 for you. How love surpasses everything- bloated egos, bloated livers πŸ˜† πŸ˜† πŸ˜† and must ultimately triumph. YAWN! Watch it only for the beudah who pitches in a sincere effort πŸ˜€ Cheers to that! πŸ˜‰

BELOW: Dude, where’s the Chlormint? πŸ˜† πŸ˜† πŸ˜†
