Cocktail stars Saif Ali Khan(Gautam Kapoor), Deepika Padukone(Veronica), Diana Penty(Meera), Dimple Kapadia and Boman Irani. Directed by Homi Adajania (who earlier directed ‘Being Cyrus’) revolves around friendship, love, and all other complications associated with it.
Teary eyed Meera lands in London and bumps into the wild party animal Veronica in a rest room. Having nowhere to go, she ends up staying in Veronica’s house and they become soul sisters (haven’t they learnt from real life where 2 good looking women cannot be friends/soul sisters). One night of partying makes way for them meeting Gautam and surprise surprise, he too moves into the house. The 3 have a ball of a time living together, with Gautam having his interests with Veronica and a cordial respect for Meera. Mom Dimple suddenly turns up to find her son Gutlu(Gautam,obviously) living with 2 women and he convinces her that Meera is the love of his life.
On a weekend trip, Gautam discovers his feelings for Meera and things go into an emotional whirlpool. Meera allows them to re-discover each other. Veronica meanwhile, tries to turn things around and all emotions get complicated between the three of them.
What I liked:
Diana Penty- looks so waif-like and doesn’t want to let go of her Indian ness and reinforces that Silence is Golden
Deepika Padukone in a rare display of acting- one as a party animal, a rich spolit brat but with a heart of gold; another as a girl desperate to make the love of her life accept her as marriage material
Tracks - Daaru Desi & Tumhi ho bandhu
What I didn’t:
Saif trying to be 25 something at 40, and looking ridiculous
Movie could’ve ended 15 min earlier, and spared all of us the emotional atyachaar
My rating: 2.5/5(can wait till it comes on TV)
