What’s Not about Befikre ?
While I appreciate that Aditya Chopra wanted to make a hatke movie, I believe at some point he didn’t how to give Dharam and Shyra’s friendship a proper conclusion. So thus the movie falls into the usual trap of clichés in the second half, filled with secondary lovers who are disposable at the right, a healthy BFF and getting in touch with your ‘Indian’ values at the right moment. After a breezy first half that’s so different from the usual Hindi movies, we expected Aditya Chopra to take a path less travelled in the second half. Instead, these positions are a potpourri of ideas taken from movies like Love Aaj Kal, Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na, and even their own brand movie, Band Baaja Baaraat.
