Beautifully played out story - good twist in the middle of the movie, beginning of second half was slightly dragged however. Meaningful movie - something that's lacking in Bollywood these days. Great dialogues by Anurag Kashyap. Good music. Movie did not receive the reception it deserved in the box office.
Ranveer Singh falling from the tree towards the end of the movie wasn't shot well. Unsure why he pulled out his gun in the end but maybe he had lived his life to the fullest.

Career defining performances by Ranveer Singh & Sonakshi Sinha that you can feel that pain, anguish, love & other emotions of protagonists.
It's well said that it's the director who brings out the best from stars & convert them into actors.
One of the best romantic films I have ever seen & easily the best film of the year.
If you are into flashy fast paced action films then this is probably not the film for you, however if you like classic style gently moving stories that are acted rather than action led then you will enjoy this film
The cinematography is sheer poetry with the 1950s sets painstakingly created to such authentic detail. The whole idea behind the film seems to have germinated from O Henry's short story "The Last Leaf" whose story however only takes up the last act. The film is a testament to how much Hindi Cinema has evolved over the last few years with the advent of a niche market known as the classes. Just as I was beginning to warm up to the idea of looking forward to more such gems I was rudely brought back to reality in the form of a three minute drivel - the trailer of "Chennai Express" - Hindi Cinema is not entirely out of the doldrums - atleast not yet as long as there still is an audience for the likes of "Shower Rock Can" and co. There is hope though in the form a new brigade of film makers such as Tigmanshu Dhulia, Sujoy Ghosh, Reema Kagti, Dibankar Banerjee and ofcourse Anurag Kashyap, in the meantime I am going to check out Vikramaditya Motwane's first venture "Udaan".
