Wake Up Sid Movie Review

A fresh and a heart-warming film, Wake up Sid is all about real characters of modern times and their story is just like a slice of life, you would wonder if yours.  A must watch!  Rating – 4/5

Movie_Wake_up_Sid

Cast: Ranbir Kapoor, Konkona Sen, Anupam Kher, Supriya Pathak

Director: Ayan Mukherjee

Time:  2 hrs 15 mins

I won’t be surprised if many of you would feel that Sid Mehra (Ranbir Kapoor) or Aisha Banerjee is almost like you by the end of the first half of the film. Yes they are like any of us when we were in our late teens and early twenties. Sid Mehra is our quintessential post-modern youngster, who has everything in life and yet nothing at all. Ayan Mukherjee does a ‘Farhan Akhtar’ with his characterization of Sid – reminiscent of Aamir in Dil Chahta Hai and more of Hrithik in Lakshya. You would obviously know where the film is heading to – it’s fairly predictable. Aisha Banerjee is his opposite in habit and nature but still there is something that connects them on many levels.

But there is more to Wake up Sid than the story that is most impressive in the first half but slows down in the second half, almost going round and round the same things.  The screenplay is one of the prominent assets of the film that maintains the pleasant feel and look of the film, dialogues add to the strength of the screenplay being simple like every day conversation yet so effective to the narrative.  Cinematography is amazing. If you look at Mumbai from Anil Mehta’s lens you would fall in love with the city even if you have never been to it.

Ranbir Kapoor has definitely gotten better from his second film, is more precise with his expressions now doing full justice to the character. Konkona Sen is the real star of the film in terms of performance which seems so natural and effortless.  Their chemistry is very good for the unconventional screen couple they make. All the other actors along with the girl who played Laxmi have delivered mature performances.

I’d say go for it guys! This weekend is for Wake Up Sid!

    I’ll watch on DVD because I’ve been let down by reviews b4 so now I don’t trust any reviews. But like I said it looks good. I will watch this movie but only on DVD. The movie has to be really big for me to go watch it in theater. I’ll wait for Aamir Khan’s movie to hit the theaters.

    Its a perfect movie that captures the true essence of life, coming of age, youth, innocence and love in a very natural and realistic manner. Dharma productions have proved once again that India is a wide sea of hidden talents that need to be revealed.

    The odd couple of Konkana sen and Ranbir kapoor make the movie ironically even more fun and realistic. They have out done themselves and I am glad that Karan Johar gave a chance to a new director to demonstrate this beautiful art piece.
