For all the expectations and excitement that people had about this movie, the first trailer was such a turn off! it seemed like a student's project put together in the last minute.At least, I didn't like it! Watch it below -

Then came a teaser of shorter duration but slick and stylish. Something that should have been released first. It did perfectly what a trailer should do. Give out enough details to get the viewer interested and hold back enough stuff to make it intriguing. Watch it below -

Shankar Ehsaan Loy have had a bad couple of years or so. They are out of form, stuck in their stereotypic tunes and had to do something to break all the self imposed cliches.

They do something to regain their reputation here. The music brings back a touch of memories of 'Dil Chahta Hai'. Its fresh, soothing and youthful(is that a word ?). Javed Akhtar doesn't normally go wrong with his lyrics and he sticks to his class.

The album boats of at least 3-4 songs that are catchy and it remains to be seen how much impact the visuals will have on rest of the album.

  • It was widely reported that the movie was having serious problem on the editing table. The director Zoya was having a tough time with the editors(or other way around) to get the movie edited according to her approach.

  • Then we had the poster plagiarism story going all over the blogosphere. Here is what we pulled out -

            What do you think ?

Irrespective of the 'controversies', (we expect) this movie will be worth the money spent.

Final words

This movie has been in the news since the casting was announced and it would be an under statement to say that the people joining hands on this project made it more than exciting for all the movie fans to keep the anticipation up.

Its a movie that the fans have pateintly waited for and this is precisely what could take the movie down if it doesn't boast of a praise worthy script and premise. Fingers crossed!
