Story lacks depth, characters lack dimensions, director lacks imagination!

Half Girlfriend is a bad film, with nothing but an uncalled-for overdose of senti-ness. Mohit Suri is not learning and his commercial motives have outdone his ability to make decent films like Awarapan. Needless melodrama, pretentious �pagalpan� of the lover, absurd settings and some really sloppy w...(more)

Watch It Only If You Enjoy Sleeping In Air Conditioned Movie Theatres

A little bit of sensibility is expected from an author be it a book or a movie script. Only those who have lost someone close to cancer, know the pain. I am not divulging who said this to whom here as I would be giving away the entire story then. The half-baked story lacks depth and so do the lead ...(more)

We half liked Half Girlfriend

Under Mohit Suri�s baton, and staying faithful to Chetan Bhagat�s source material from his novel of the same name, the two give us some laugh-out loud, felt moments, but which ultimately get stymied by too much sufi-fuelled song, and some mis-steps. I half liked Half-Girlfriend.(more)

Movie Review

The first half breezes through, but post interval proceedings hang; in tandem with the hangdog expression worn by the hero. Arjun is sincere, but seems too urban for an ideal `Bihari� fit. And Shraddha, who looks her loveliest here, lacks gravitas.(more)

Half Girlfriend is a full-fledged fiasco!

Based on a novel by Chetan Bhagat, Half Girlfriend pitches Madhav Jha (Arjun Kapoor) as a humanitarian endeavouring to set up toilets in his mom's school and promote girls education, an undertaking he conveniently forgets in his preoccupation to find a girl in NYC's live singing bars on the basis of...(more)

Arjun Kapoor, Shraddha Kapoor�s film isn�t a page-turner

Mohit Suri knows how to throw melodious music to hook audiences and he does that to stretch a thin plot for almost two-and-a-half hours. Suri isn�t the only one guilty here. Even if you ignore Shraddha Kapoor�s �rich people have severe domestic issues� expressions, you can�t do the same with Ar...(more)

Arjun, Shraddha, Chetan Bhagat. Enough said.

Director Mohit Suri tries hard to save this half-baked story with many wistful songs and rain numbers... the latter would need an entire page to itself. Riya Somani's obsession with walking out in the rain, eyes half-open, is used so many times and in so many places that you want to shift to the Ata...(more)

Arjun, Shraddha in a half-baked and a quarter palatable film

Those who have read Half Girlfriend say this is quite a faithful adaptation, and perhaps even better than Chetan Bhagat�s novel. I shudder to think how laborious the book must have been given the paper-thin story.(more)
