Movie: Student Of The Year

Director: Karan Johar

Cast: Alia Bhatt, Sidharth Malhotra, Varun Dhawan and Rishi Kapoor

Jagran Rating:  (Average)

Student of the Year is stereotypically Karan Johar movie. It seems to be an updated version of Johar’s 1998 blockbuster- Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. This movie is all about clubbing, bunking classes and chilling out in classroom. The story of the film revolves around three students of ST. Teressa School, which is one of the famous schools in the country. 

Students here have their eyes set on the most coveted trophy of the school- the Student of the Year. A nerdy Kayoze Irani narrates the story of St. T’s ten years after their batch dissipated from the school, and now gathered at the deathbed of their Dean, Yoginder Vashisht (Rishi Kapoor). The run for the Student of the Year trophy, ten years back, was one that was nothing short of a live-or-die competition for the inmates of St. T’s.

Rohan Nanda (Varun Dhawan),a filthy rich guy who drives around in a Ferrari at times and Merc convertible at others. Rohan is the boy every girl in the school seems to have set an eye upon. Alia Bhatt, as the girl whose each hour of the day is dominated by thoughts of whether to carry a Louis Vuitton bag or to strut around in Jimmy Choos, does a remarkable job of playing Shanaya Singhania. Shanaya and Rohan are the couple everybody looks up to in the school. Tanya Israni (Sana Saeed: Yes, that same Anjali who played SRK and Rani Mukerji’s daughter in ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’), is the biggest haddi in the kabaab of Rohan-Shanaya’s relationship.

Now enters Abhimanyu Singh (Siddharth Malhotra) and the order of the universe stands disrupted, and badly so. Owner of a six-pack abdomen and some solid potential, Siddharth Malhotra is one of the new entrants to watch out for. From friends to enemies, Rohan and Abhi traverse an emotional journey. And with Shanaya as the rope in the tug-of war between the hearts of the two, the triangular love story isn’t all that bad – but hasn’t got anything much that’s unpredictable, either.

Thumbs Up: All the debutants work hard to make their remarks in industry with this film. Foot-tapping remixes like ‘Gulabi aankhen’, ‘Yeh chand sa roshan chehra’, ‘Disco deewane’ will surely groove you. This film gives you lavish scene and with the help of this film you can get the ideas of latest dressing or styling trends. Alia Bhatt, as the girl whose each hour of the day is dominated by thoughts of whether to carry a Louis Vuitton bag or to strut around in Jimmy Choos, does a remarkable job of playing Shanaya Singhania

Thumbs Down: This movie is stereotypically Karan Johar movie. It definitely isn’t the film of the year. Film lacks of good concept and you can’t find anything new it’s like rehashed version of Kuch Kuch Hota and its star cast tries to act like SRK, Kajol and Rani. If you want your entertainment to be served with glitzy tadka and lavish outdoor shooting, book your ticket now. Basically it’s for youngsters and one time watch.
