Refreshingly Cool..!!

A movie on celluloid, which is refreshingly cool, breathtakingly beautiful, artistically aesthetic and naturally loveable..!I won't disagree with the fact that the picturesque landscapes of Spain took away some of the emotional quotient from the film, but i ain't complaining...and that is because I simply loved it..!!There were scenes which literally took my breath away...and some beautiful moments which touched..like the one in which Hrithik is sitting on the boat, with moist eyes and a realization of how beautiful this life is...The moment when Farhan calls his mom from the prison (I know most of u won't even remember that, but to me it somehow clicked!). there were dialogues which were original, and might just go on to become historic.."mera naam imran hai, par dost mujhe pyaar se majnu bulate hai". No wonder, Farhan Akhtar has kept the best dialogues for himself...The Doordarshan sequence in the bar, and another one where Hrithik is on a video call...are truly genius..Throwing out the cell phone, Farhan giving Hrithik a pink 'mushy mushy-Japanese-School-Girl' cell phone...The three grownups playing planks..all bring smiles to your faces...A sensous kiss between arguably the sexiest male and the sexiest female..skydiving, water diving, Tomatino, running with bulls behind you are certainly the pluses..;)Ya there was an emotional angle in the lives of all the three protagonists, but then who cares..!When Kalki points out that 'obviously you won't like to go on a boy's trip after marriage' along with Hrithik and Farhan I also had the same question in my mind...Is it??Similarly, when Hrithik says that 'Who needs a wife for entertainment, when you have 1000 crores in your bank account, again this thought crossed my mind 'Is it?' but a fraction of seconds later another thought came in 'BULL SHIT!!'..To be honest, it was actually a good film to check out,  a relief from the usual nonsense Sajid Nadiadwala types..!Some wonderful poetic moments by Javed Akhtar, heart touching and foot tapping numbers by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, but undoubtedly the hero of the movie was Carlos Catalan, who captured the magnificent Spain in his lens so exquisitely and yes of course Zoya Akhtar, for bringing back the DCH era once again..(yes there were glimpses of DCH here and there). In short Bollywood has come a long way from 'yes and no' to 'Ya' to 'Yup and Nope'..(I guess for the first time yup and nope has been used on the big screen..although m not sure..:P)and succeeds in its attempt to be uber-cool..!
Don't miss the trip..There's much more to Spain besides La Liga, Barcelona (yes, they showed kids wearing Xavi and Pique Barcelona t-shirts) and Real Madrid...!
