Movie Info

This is the story of Sidharth Mehra, a lazy, unmotivated slacker from Mumbai whose life undergoes a series of changes after taking his final year college exams. Sid's world is breezy, carefree, and without any true responsibilities. The most important elements in his life are his friends, his camera, his car, and his X-box 360. Sid thrives around his two best friends, Rishi and Laxmi, very rarely communicates with his mother Sarita and takes his father Ram Mehra, and all his hard earned wealth for granted. Despite all these traits, Sid is an honest boy; sweet, funny, and above all, a good friend. Aisha Bannerjee, an aspiring writer from Calcutta, learns this soon enough when her path crosses with Sid's on her first day in Bombay, Ambitious, well-read, and driven, Aisha has come to Bombay to realize her dreams as a writer. Despite their contrasting personalities. Sid becomes Aisha's first friend in the city. As Aisha sets up her life in Bombay, with the help of Sid and his gang, Sid allows for time to fly by over long drives, parties that stretch well into dawn, and endless hours doing absolutely nothing. But summers vary rarely dull these days and Sid's summer is no different. A series of circumstances and events compel him to take stock of his life and take a hard look at himself. Will he, at some point figure out what he's supposed to be doing with his life?

Critic Reviews for Wake Up Sid

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (3)

Despite a storyline that would require a few more subplots to qualify as featherweight, this atypically low-key Bollywood romantic comedy somehow manages to remain pleasantly diverting throughout its 138-minute running time.

Audience Reviews for Wake Up Sid

½

An interesting movie that centralizes on a mischievous, and immature young man whose always believed that with family, he could not want for anything. Without a care in the world, he meets Aisha (she's everything that he isn't) and helps her to settle into the life of Mumbai. Failing his last year of college and his father wanting him to gain some responsibility and work in his company, Sid leaves home after a family dispute with only his clothes. With no money and no plan, he decides to see his friend Aisha. For the first time in his entire life, he realizes that things aren't always given. At Aisha's insistence, he decides to learn basic life skills and grow up. Great cast- Ranbir Kapoor, Kokona Sen Sharma, Anupam Kher, Supriya Pathak, Kainaz Motivala, and Rahul Khanna. Worthy!
