Finally, after two months I made it to the theater to watch a movie- Student of the Year. I wanted to see this movie as it was directed by Karan Johar, one of my favorite romantic movie makers. No one can forget Kuch Kuch Hota Hai , which kick started Rani Mukerji’s career and made her a super star. Ahhhh the movie was awesome with all the flavors in it.
Moving onto Student of the year, it was a great treat to see upcoming talent and new faces with such a big launch. This movie has introduced three new talents to the bollywood industry – Alia bhatt (Mahesh bhatt’s daughter), Varun Dhawan (Son of David Dhawan) and Sidharth Malhotra ( a delhi based model)
Varun dhawan has played a role of rich brat who hates his father. Varun has shown as an aspiring singer who’s so called lady love is Shanaya (played by Alia Bhat). I think they have spent half of the movie budget in Alia Bhatt’s styling. Alia Bhatt is looking very pretty just like a mannequin in a high end store with beautiful designer clothes. She has very few dialogues in the movie. It might be because Karan Johar knew her acting skills. Basically, Alia Bhatt is in the movie just for skin show and to move over the peppy numbers. Abhimanyu (played by Sidharth Malhotra) belongs to a middle class family but definitely can afford bikes and good clothes. Abhimanyu has portrayed a character of an ambitious guy who wants to win the trophy of student of the year but all of sudden he fell in love with Shanaya (his best friend’s girl friend) and then Varun Dhawan wears his thinking hat and decides to show the world his competence by winning student of the year trophy. (How touchy, a man with broken heart decides to fight against a trophy).
And for the student of the year competition, the school ambiance transforms to a battle field where all students start competing against each other for the trophy. At the end, Varun Dhawan wins the trophy of student of the year with a mercy of Sidharth Malhotra.
Overall, the movie is very average with weak story line. In Indian Cinema, Movie can work just because of two reasons – the first one is superstars and the second is strong story line and Karan Johar’s Student of the year lacks in both of them. It could be a much better movie if Karan Johar should have paid more money to a writer than to a designer.
