HALF GIRLFRIEND PLOT: Madhav Jha (Arjun), a rural boy from Bihar who met with his college-mate, Riya Somani (Shraddha) and gets attracted to her. She is an extraordinary English-speaking girl from Delhi.
This film showcases Madhav’s love for Riya as he keeps on being obsessed with her.
HALF GIRLFRIEND REVIEW: The supposition that many have perused Chetan Bhagat’s 2014 novel of a similar name ought to be a sheltered one in light of the fact that Bhagat’s cushion has its own particular after. In any case, Half Girlfriend is certainly not one of his best works. Thus, Mohit Suri (Aashiqui2, Ek Villain) gives us a celluloid trip that is thoda fun and to a great extent bothering.
The fun bit originates from viewing the Simrao kid (articulated bai) struck by a thunderbolt when he spots the Delhi lady. Furthermore, the overcome endeavors chalk makes in going for cheddar is likewise charming. Envision this; he can scarcely talk a sprinkling of English and she acts like she is a somewhat late-in-the day British import. However, it’s justifiable that they discover an escape in b-ball and music. A little while later, Madhav’s fascination turns into a deadly fascination. His school mate Shailesh(Vikrant Massey, pitch-culminate execution) cautions him of the threat of crashing into a restricted road however Madhav, who is perpetually in Majnu mode by then, pays no notice.
The baffling piece for Madhav and for the group of onlookers is that Riya is duty phobic. Her dost se zyada however sweetheart se kum position appears non-debatable and prevents you from putting resources into her part of the way through the film.
Back to apna Madhav, destiny blesses him several times later when his way crosses that of Riya’s. What’s more, he pursues her from Patna to New York (notwithstanding dragging Bill Gates into procedures) with a resoluteness that ought to speak to the incalculable stalkers, who disgrace society consistently.
The primary half easily finishes, yet post interim procedures hang; couple with the hangdog expression worn by the legend. Arjun is true, yet appears to be excessively urban for a perfect `Bihari’ fit. What’s more, Shraddha, who looks her loveliest here, needs gravitas.
To the extent the gathering music collection goes- – Manoj Muntashir’s Phir Bhi Main Tumko Chahoonga, the main track that has genuine review is expressively satisfactory however Mithoon’s tune is not sufficiently convincing. At last, half sweetheart or beau is that individual a large portion of us have experienced on grounds. Be that as it may, would we truly like to remember those recollections? It depends completely on the state of mind.
