YJHD is just another continuation to what movies like ‘Dil Chahtha Hai’, ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’, ‘Cocktail’, ‘Love Aaj Kal’, ‘I Hate Luv Stories’ etc. had to say, “to celebrate your life with the ones that matters to you most amidst your busy timeline”. What still makes it watchable even after you know it has nothing novel to offer and a tad long second hour, is its leading cast which is extremely charismatic and exuberant. If you’re a fan of the usual Bollywood masala which is predictable at its every turn, then this is tailor made for you.

Bunny (Ranbir Kapoor), Avi (Adithya Roy Kapoor) and Aditi (Kalki Koechilin) are best friends from school and they decide to go for trekking in Manali for holiday. Naina (Deepika Padukone), an introvert scholar and a schoolmate of the above three friends, joins them and Naina discovers happiness in the trio’s madness and predictably falls head over heels in love with Bunny, but doesn’t tell him about her feelings. Bunny doesn’t believe in the institution of marriage or love and is a freedom seeker who wants to travel around the world and live his life in his own terms. After 8 years, four friends gets back together in India for Aditi’s wedding, where the friendship between them is not the same as it was before. How they all find their rapport back and what happens to the relationship between Bunny and Naina forms the crux of the plot.

Plot wise, there is hardly anything that you haven’t seen in other movies; still its first half was adequately entertaining with some good lighter moments, peppy music and above all the chemistry between the protagonists. The movie moves on a downward graph as the latter half commenced with the usual predictable drama kicking in, with the long duration being the main killjoy. Technically speaking, cinematography was impressive in capturing the serene beauty of Manali and slick visuals in foreign countries equally. Music by Pritam, is another chartbuster with a good mix of peppy and melodious numbers, but the over indulgence of the songs in the narrative could have been trimmed a bit to make the proceedings faster in the second hour.

Speaking about the performances, Ranbir does a neat job in portraying the adventure spirited guy who seeks freedom in his every breath. Deepika unlike being a usual party girl does a good job in depicting an introvert who transforms into sociable person effectively and she looked a million bucks especially in the song sequences. Adithya Roy Kapoor, as the happy-go-lucky guy was decent with his extended act of a drunkard from what he did in ‘Aashiqui 2’. Kalki Koechilin as the craziest among the lot was convincing enough. Kunal Roy Kapoor as the goofy lover of Aditi had nothing much to do.

All in all, another typical Bollywood approach about friendship and love by underlying the usual message about celebrating your life, with an extremely charismatic cast of Ranbir-Deepika-Adithya-Kalki, breezy music from Pritam and nifty visuals. Go for it, if you’re obsessed with the distinctive Bollywood sensibilities or if you have to kill time for a date.


Rating – 6.5/10
Verdict - Typical Bollywood!
