Many thought that Wake Up Sid! will be something lecture kind film or another non sense film by producer Karan Johar. But it' s not. Even if the story is predictable, it is captured in different manner. The movie will definitely make you feel refreshed. A good movie after too many baseless movies in Bollywood.
There was also a buzz that it' s a combination of Dil Chahata Hai and Lakshya. But do not compare it with any movie. Debutant director Ayan Mukerji has beautifully narrated the story of a college going boy, which you can absolutely relate to yourself or to someone you know. It will recall your college days of watching movies by bunking lectures, late night parties, long drives, endless chats with friends that stretched to dawn and many more sweet-bitter memories.
Before the release of the movie there was a question that whether Ranbeer Kapoor and Konkona Sen' s odd jodi will work? Well, it worked. Ranbeer once again proved himself as a superb actor. However the talented Konkona has delivered one more strong performance like she always does.
Wake Up Sid! depicts story of Siddharth aka Sid (Ranbir Kapoor), who is lazy, carefree, aimless and has nothing to do responsibly. But his life changes when he gives final exam of his college. He has two best friends Laxmi (Shikha Talsania) and Rishi (Namit Das). He rarely talks with his mother Sarita (Supriya Pathak), but takes father Ram Mehra (Anupam Kher) and his property for granted. However besides all the drawbacks, Sid is a sweet boy and a good friend.
Aisha Bannerjee played by Konkona Sen Sharma is a character completely opposite to Sid. She is ambitious, responsible and knows what she wants to do in life. She comes to Mumbai to fulfill her dream to become a writer. On her first day in Mumbai she meets Sid and so they become friends. Sid becomes her first friend in the city. Sid along with his little gang helps her to settle properly in Mumbai.
When Sid' s time was flying away in long drives and late night parties, Aisha is finding her place in the city. However some conditions make the ' noting to do' Sid to take charge of his life and be responsible. Aisha helps him to become responsible.
In all, Wake Up Sid! worth a watch. Absolutely a multiplex watch movie. The best part of the film is strong performances by Ranbeer and Konkona. No one else could have performed Sid' s character as Ranbeer did and Konkona seen so effortless to perform the incredible character. Veteran actors Anupam Kher and Supriya Pathak are as always wonderful. Shikha Talsania and Namit Das also acted well. However, Rahul Khanna gets less scope to explore his talent. Music by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy rocks and so the cinematography by Anil Mehta.
Wake Up Sid! one of the best movies of the year. A must watch.
