As the name suggests the movie was a cocktail. A cocktail of various things that can happen in Love Triangle/Love story. Wasn't really a new idea but the way it was picturised was bit fresh. The film was quite predicatble at some places. Everyone played their part well. Diana Penty was one to watch as it was her debut. Overall the film was quite predictable but entertaining.

A great entertainer.........director Imtiaz Ali gives this run-of-the-mill love triangle a fresh makeover.

Cocktail is good in various departments but imtiaz ali's mashed up story keeps director in limits...otherwise is a good entertainer.

Cocktail - CATCH IT (B)
From promos Cocktail looked like something really out of the box or fresh but sadly it's just another story about 2 best friends falling for the same Casanova guy. Now the only thing made this movie different from the previous movies was the brilliant performance and confidence of Deepika Padakone, this woman was amazing and literally stole the show with her brilliant performance. She deserves all the accolades, as she brought this sympathy into audience's hearts towards the party girls. That even though they are bold, and do crazy stuff it doesn't mean that they don't have heart or don't want simple things in life.
On the other hand Saif Ali Khan as Casanova was irritating. He has the looks but c'mon his cheesy dialogues and pickup lines were just too cheap to ignore. New girl Diana Penty makes a good impression. The music of the movie is really good.
In the end, it's a typical movie with nothing new but still enjoyable and a must see for Deepika's Performance.

The story revolves around three friends " Gautam (Saif Ali Khan), Deepika Padukone (Veronica) and Diana Penty (Meera). Gautam has a crush over Veronica and the feeling is mutual. However, he falls for Meera. Now what does she do?

The movie can be associated with a couple of proverbs like "too many cooks spoil the broth"and "two's company, three's a crowd". Cocktail by Homi Adjania takes various portions of our lives and puts them into a story which takes place in the beautiful cities of London, New Delhi and Cape Town. The movie revolves around the lives of three friends who have settled in the United Kingdom, their funny moments and their emotional turmoil.

Gautam, Veronica and Meera find themselves enjoying the company of each other and their bonding seems to be perfect. Gautam is a flirt by nature; Veronica is a spoilt rich brat while Meera is a simple middle class Indian girl. Initially we see Veronica and Gautam engaged in a non-committal relationship. There are many elements of laughter revolving around this relationship. Meera, Veronica's best pal, is content to be a part of the gang although she makes it a point not to interfere in Veronica and Gautam's bizarre relationship.

The script by Imtiaz Ali is great in parts. During the first half of the movie, there are many light hearted moments and great comic relief. The songs by Pritam seem to take the audience straight into party mode. However, during some scenes where the actors are having a conversation, there seems to be a disconnect somewhere. This leads to a somewhat fall in the overall tempo of the movie.

The chemistry amongst the group has been captured beautifully. The relationship between Meera and Veronica is realistic and sometimes compels one to think. The relationship between Veronica and Gautam can seem to be a bit bizarre at times while the love between Gautam and Meera could have been explored a bit more. That particular chemistry that we see between the lead pairs in all of Imtiaz Ali movies like "Jab We Met" and "Love Aaj Kal" seems to be superficial when we talk about Gautam and Meera. Despite all these minor flaws, the movie still will score as the youth of today will see a part of themselves in all the three characters. They will relate themselves to the characters in the movie and that is the plus point of Cocktail.

The film shifts into serious mode when Mr. Cupid strikes. Friendship is overshadowed by love. The film then takes the route of a distinctive Bollywood love triangle which has become the time tested path for many directors and producers of Hindi films to trod on over the years. There are many positives to take away from the movie. The lead actors have all excelled in their characters. Saif plays the role of a modern day Casanova with elegance. We actually love when we see the flirtatious side of him. Deepika Padukone is the pick of the lot. This movie may be a turning point for her as this is probably her best performance since her debut. She perfectly portrays the character of a rich spoilt, bitchy brat. She looks beautiful throughout the movie as well. Diana Penty, making her Bollywood debut, was good though she needs to polish up her act if she wants to survive.

The other characters in the movie have been done complete justice. Dimple Kapadia, who plays Saif's mother, is excellent as the loud desi woman. Boman Irani, essaying the role of Saif's father, is excellent as usual. The music by Pritam is already scorching the charts. The dialogues are funny and have some outrageous one-liners. All in all, the movie should be praised for introducing the free-spirited Gen-Next era to Bollywood " an era where everyone can relate themselves to the characters in the movie.
