Movie is not perfect, nor is it looking like its living up to the expectations, that I get.. But I have a problem.. I am confused cz each review says different things! In fact exactly opposite things!

Some say 1st half was boring, and 2nd half was fab
Some say 1st half was very good but the 2nd half was a drag
Some say 1st half was very good but the 2nd half was a drag but the climax was fab
Some say climax was cliche and bad
Some say KJo/Khambatta was fab n rest say he (the character &/or acting) was what ruined most

ughh.. never read such confusing POVs! Anyway I will see for myself in a few hrs time..
Only thing other than for 2 reviews that seemed consistent it seems is RK & AS's acting. and production value.

Even there, most reviews say Ranbir was absolutely great, another says he had no substance, and yet another says he didn't have the larger in life quality needed for the character. One review says Anushka was miscast as a jazz singer, another says she was better onstage (as the singer) than otherwise, yet others say she was great in general. One review says Anushka and Ranbir's 'sizzling' chemistry is what makes the movie, another literally called them 'passionless.' ConfusedLOL Either each person who watches this movie has and is going to have their own very polarizing views or...these reviews just don't make sense collectively.


I just wrote the same thing!
This is bloody ridiculous! AngryLOL

It seemed boring so no surprise it's getting negative reviews, and it's getting good ones too

Let's see what happens

Raja Sen's review is trash. Rosie's character isn't supposed to be the jazz singer who's bursting at the seams with confidence and vivacity when she has an entire backstory about abuse laid out and faces blackmail and dominance in present day by multiple men. She's not playing a siren, and maybe if he had payed some more attention he would've connected those dots...that or realized it sometime during the Dhadaam Dhadaam sequence, which was essentially essayed by Rosie the jazz singer, and something that he so praised as the crowning moment of the movie.

Yup, Raveena is what a glitzy Jazz singer is supposed to be.
NOT what vulnerable, abused Rosie is supposed to be! Rosie is a girl who can sing, so she uses it to earn a living and survive and due to that lands the job. That is all there is to her character's aspect as a singer.
Even if Anushka's performance as Rosie is bad according to him, as u rightly said he is the only one who seems to not have even gotten what Rosie the character essentially is! Sleepy

I think he expected either a Romeo Juliet/ Sound of Music or Gangs of Wassepur 3 and is disappointed it was none of them! LOL

Watching at 10 PM IST.. Right now threatre seems to be almost khaali... so I think it will depend totally on WoM... However here mostly theatres fill up by evening... so can give a better idea after I watch it ... didnt read most of the reviews although I understand that it is not unanimously wow... however this is a movie I have been looking forward to from the time it was announced... so going with an open mind and hoping that anurag kashyap wont disappoint me... I think I will lik eRanbir and anushka ;-)

Raja sen missed the whole point...Raveena is a fab actress but she is a mature woman n probably playing an experienced jazz singer...whereas Rosie is a young woman, who goes to mumbai to improve her life, has passion for singing, is vulnerable, n eventually falls in love...if not anushka it still had to be a young actress opposite ranbir for rosie's character...

Hahahahah

I didn't even know that this movie came out it or that it's releasing so soon, there's zero hype for it
