For all those who aren't living in Guam or under a rock with no television access, the theatrical trailer of the Saif Ali Khan-Deepika Padukone-Diana Penty Starrer, Cocktail, seems like a definite hangover from the days of Love Aaj Kal. Here's w
The first look of the movie gives away a large portion of the plot, of the movie. What can be conclusively established from the marketing overload of the film is one - there is one petite, traditional damsel in utter need of a culture shock who goes by the name-Meera, an earth shattering surprise. So the filmmakers took an alternative route and developed a polar opposite of the character, Meera from Love Aaj Kal. If anyone was expecting brownie points for character development or originality, 2009 called, they want their script back. Two – Deepika who plays Veronica, the proverbial wild child, does what she does best, she gets up on tables, throws back cocktails and has occasional life changing epiphanies. Three – Saif Ali Khan embodies a cumulative of all the characters he has played since Dil Chahta Hai, charming, affable and clichéd. Consequently, Gautam appears to be a one dimensional afterthought circa Love Aaj Kal.
