34. Coming of age

Coming of age is a young person's transition from childhood to adulthood.

Everyone in his/her life goes through this transition in their life ,but not all transitions are for the good ,some get guided in a better way whilst some in a wrong way.

Successful persons go through this stage with lots of pitfalls that shape up their character that helps them achieve in their life.

PLOT : "The coming of age story of a rich & spoilt boy. "

I regret my decision to skip this movie when it was in theatres ,such a feel good movie this is that it makes me regret my decison even further ,hope these kinda films are made on a regular basis.

Coming from the production house of Karan Johar ,Wake Up Sid is one of those films that most youngsters could relate to ,whether its their college life ,friendship or career dilemma.

Ayan Mukherjee who is also one of the film's writers has directed this romantic comedy that strikes the right chord with the youngsters ,his portrayal of urban life mixed with the upper middle class culture has come out really well.

His choice of casting couldn't have been better ,Ranbir Kapoor as the rich & spoilt kid & Konkona Sen as an aspiring writer wanting to be independent was a perfect sync.

Ranbir Kapoor ,i was really impressed with his perfomance in Bachna Ae Haseeno ,has more then served justice to his portrayal of a rich kid who is completely dependent on his dad for everything in his life ,this actor is really going places.

Konkona Sen ,well this was my first glimpse of her & my feedback is ,"Bravo !!!".She has really given a tough competition to Ranbir here ,both have given a splendid performance & sharing a beautiful chemsitry.

The approach to the film by the writers Ayan Mukherjee & Niranjan Iyengar is very realistic which clicks for the film & its cast.I'll be more then happy to see these two come together for more films.

Music by Shankar-Eshaan-Loy is neat ,its goes hand in hand with the movie's pace & keeps with the it throughout ,not many movies achieve this kinda sync.

All the scenes in this movie can be easily related to a youngster's life ,the sudden urge of a family asking to grow up ,a vaccum left by friends who take leave to settle down & the dilemma of choosing a career is placed well here.

The friendship between the lead actors is a one to lookout for here ,they serve as one of the best portrayed friendships in cinema ,a friendship with the right dosage of care ,affection & anger.

Indian cinema is on a revival path these days with real life themes getting a warm reception by the audience & collecting the moolah at the box office ,winds of change have arrived & lets hope things get better.

Witnessing films of this genre might certainly help out certain youngsters who are in a phase of dilemma in their life ,wanting to grow up & at the sametime wanna have some fun ,a clear indication of Coming of age.

  • Rating : "PG" for some scenes involving heavy drinking
P.S : " Karan Johar apologized to MNS chief Raj Thackeray for referrig the city of Mumbai as Bombay in a conversation between Ranbir Kapoor and Konkona Sen some 12 times & the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena supporters objected this by halting the film's screening. "
