The Vigil Idiot: Cocktail

July 16, 2012 8:23 am by

First, the good things about director Homi Adajania’s Cocktail. It’s a great movie to look at! Although, I suspect a lot of that has to do with newcomer Diana Penty (she plays Mira) being on screen for a substantial amount of the runtime. And Deepika Padukone’s legs (as seen on the character of Veronica) have put in their finest performance in a short, but memorable career. But that’s about all I took away from this film. It lost me the moment it showed Saif Ali Khan’s character (Gautam), a software engineer who gets all the ladies. I mean, come on! Of course, that’s not the only place where the writers forgot to keep it real. Keep scrolling and see for yourself.

    Precisely – a girl who drinks and parties just ISN’T marriage material. However, a girl in patialas who prays to god statues IS! Wow…we haven’t moved on from that? Lame.

    Your comic was fantastic.
