Student of the year (2012) : Bollywood Movie Review

By the Gorgeous Palah Chingu

My Rating: 2.5/5
My Rating: 2.5/5

It’s not that I hate this movie entirely, trust me because there are brilliant casts in the Student of The Year (which I assume is not well  appreciated) and the story line which is a bit peculiar compared to other love story in bollywood films. However, there are few unnecessary scenes though which make me go cringe when I saw it. Karan Johar, we all got it. Your main cast, which is Siddarth and Varun, is very hot and good looking. Exposing more skin irritated me somehow. Isn’t that less is more? It’s not that I don’t enjoy their freaking 6 packs, I did (I am a fucking pervert) but the film keep showing those 2 main cast either shirtless, or button less, or in sleeveless where those muscles cannot be unseen. Surprisingly, everybody loves this movie. I can’t even find one person who had the same problem like me. Ouh i forgot to mention, ruby already watched it and wish she could unseen this movie. I don’t hate new comers in bollywood. I even like ranveer singh before everybody goes crazy over him. It same goes with Arjun Kapoor. Maybe because Karan Johar made an approach on showing how hot they are in the movie and kind of driven myself away from seeing their acting ability. Maybe i made the wrong choice by watching this movie. Maybe this movie should be put in the folder as a ‘Pure entertainment movie’.  Maybe, Karan Johar just wanted to appeal and attract much younger audience to watch this film (which is for sure i am not belonged in that target group).

WAS THIS SCENE REALLY NECESSARY???

Let’s talk about the storyline first. It first started with Sudo got a phone call from the coach of football team from his former school. The coach informs Sudo that the dean of St Teresa College is sick and has been hospitalized.  Sudo has been asked to call a few friends from St. Teresa which he himself rarely contacted for 10 years.   He managed to get through to them and inform Jeet, Tanya, Shruti, Abhi, Shanaya, Abhi and rohan. The first four that came early to the hospital is Jeet, Tanya, Shruti and Sudo himself. They met, pretending to be nice to each other where Jeet pointed out that back then in school, they wanted to kill each other. It was awkward and felt a bit like a small reunion. The main character which are Shanaya, Abhi and Rohan by that time, not yet arrived to the hospital. Four of them sat at the rest area in the hospital and starting to reminisce their past at st. Teresa college.

Shanaya and Rohan are already famous in St. Teresa. That’s probably because Shanaya and Rohan both came from a freaking rich family. Shanaya and Shruti were so close back then even though Shruti does not like rohan at all. Jeet thought rohan as his best friend but well, throughout this film, Rohan treated Jeet not more than his own slave. Sudo belonged to the other group, the one that entered St. Teresa because of their academic achievement, not because their father is billionaire. Not so long after that, came Abhi (well, classic Karan Johar usually will emphasize how peculiar and good looking the hero is in his film and its little bit remind me of how hrithik Roshan came to the college where Kareena study in Kabhi Kushi Kabhi Gham). Abhi enter St. Teresa with sport scholarship and refuse to mix with either group, the rich one or the smart one. The rest of the story, I am sure you can guess. Abhi befriended Rohan. He found himself fell in love with Shanaya. Shanaya confused with her own feeling. Blah…blah..Blah.

Its like Dhadkan in more shallow version. haha

Why does the title of the film ‘Student of the Year’? The Dean of St. Teresa College played by Rishi Kapoor in this film offering the scholarship and trophy for those who win the student of the year competition. All of them committed to enter the competition. For rohan, he wanted to prove his father wrong. Abhi, on the other hand, coming from poor family has been eyeing the scholarship from the beginning. It same goes to Sudo and Jeet. Shruti just for once, wanted the spotlight only for her, not Shanaya. She’s fed up of being in Shanaya Shadow. I don’t know what was the reason Shanaya and Tanya enter the competition; maybe they just can’t stand seeing each other more successful. In the end, Rohan won the competition and settled his old score with his own father. He proved his father wrong when he became a very big rock star and make a name for himself. However, His friendship with Abhi is over after he caught shanaya and him kissing in his room. Shruti and Shanaya also did not talk to each other because shruti slyly talked to shanaya to drop out from the competition. You can say thie student of the year competition has been jeopardizing their friendship and now, after 10 years, they found themselves talked to each other again.

Their tight friendship 10 years ago.

This is by far maybe the sweetest pair in the film*if it was truly a gay movie, i may find myself rather enjoying it than this unrealistic, cliche and shallow film.

The gay dean who had a huge crush on his coach. There was a particular scene where i find touching. The gay dean told the coach that they maybe made for each other in their next life. *well, India’s supreme court restores ban on gay sex recently.

Kayoze Irani (Boman’s Irani son) who acted as Sudo in this film should earn a praise from critics:

Anyway, if i ever had to choose between Siddarth Malhotra and Varun Dhawan, i would choose Varun Dhawan. His acting for me is much more alive (though he’s such a jerk in the film). Sorry for not reviewing about Shanaya which is portrayed by Alia Bhatt, I dont find her interesting at all. She’s just pretty and eye candy. If she is brilliant like Parineeti Chopra, i would give 10 pages review without any doubt.
