Many have given it favourable reviews. But many have criticised it saying that a previously used concept has been stretched far too long. ashley alfred- UTV World Movies.

The movie’s pace gets a bit less slower when the other story starts running in parallel.
There are a few things that are really annoying in this movie such as Saif playing this careless cool dude kind of role again and again even now when he’s about 40 yrs old. Mobility of Saif and Dipika, one minute they’re in London, the next they’re in India and then Saif in SF. Logistically it does sound a bit difficult to achieve. The way it’s shown that casual sex is cool and that too sort of in the first meeting. The most disturbing part of the movie — SPOILER ALERT!!! — is when Dipika realizes after the wedding that she loves saif. That is really self centered. So in a way the movie does promote the idea that it is okay to get married and then get divorced at your whim (in the name of love). Well…I can go on and on but seems like it was a good idea to try to show that even thoough the times change and no matter how fast paced life gets somethings remain just where they are (in this case to be with someone you love)

No out of the world acting neither anything different. But yes it showed the comparison in the two different relationships. The 2009 and the past of Rishi Kapoor.
However what i don’t understand is why is indian cinema so out to expose and go on about sexual contact. I mean it gives the signal that it’s cool to have sexual relationships before marriage etc. After all we are asian indian pakistani etc and like to watch our desi movies with family and when you see the stars go on about doing it before marriage it giving the impression “yeah it’s cool etc etc ”

Root to high pregancy rate no wonder. No wonder society is messed up. I mean i hate sitting there watching something that displays the girl guy open about what they have done in there relationships lol it’s like telling my dad hey this is what your daught be doing with her guy.

Whats funny is she gets married and then realises how silly.

At the end of the movie they should say “what ever you do don’t try this at home please”

Imtiaz Ali again proves that he got a talent.. The direction is great, the way he potrait the past story and the todays one is really great.

Movie hardly has a strong story but is still a must watch !!!! I must say Imtiaz Ali [ the director ] has done a great job …

Rishi kapoor’s story too was a great one and the idea of running both the stories in parallel was simply excellent …
