When friendship blossoms into romance, it grows into something beautiful, that a couple can cherish till last breath. Today, it's not a Valentine's Day, yet we feel that 'Love is in the air'. This day is special for the young hearts who have been eagerly waiting for the release of filmmaker Ayan Mukerji's most-talked about romantic flick Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, that features Bollywood's ex-couple Ranbir Kapoor, Deepika Padukone. Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani (YJHD) is a spirited cocktail of life about dreams, ambition, hope, eagerness, laughter, music, friendship, love and an absolute treat to the youth.

A Youthful Storyline
Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani introduces us to two lovely characters - Bunny (Ranbir Kapoor), who is free-spirited, fun loving, adventurous and embraces the freedom of being unattached at every step of life. While, we see the geeky Naina Talwar (Deepika Padukone), who is simple, good-natured and extremely focused as a student.

YJHD revolves around Bunny, Naina, Avi (Aditya Roy Kapoor) and Aditi (Kalki Koechlin), who takes a road trip in their holidays and make it larger than life with adventurous spots. Everything works well amongst the four friends, until Bunny and Naina splits to meet again at a wedding.

Nothing much seems new in YJHD, yet the interesting characters and decent storyline makes the stereotype work convincingly. The movie is extremely appealing and yes, Ranbir-Deepika's chemistry is yet another high point that at times makes us think: Are they still in love?

Ranbir-Deepika Performances
Ranbir Kapoor is the show stealer and a delight to watch, as always. He fits the bill well, and delivers an amazing performance. As for Deepika Padukone, we had last seen the leggy lass genuinely act was in Cocktail. And this time on, she doesn't fail to impress all. Dippy as a geeky Naina is too sweet and lovable in the film.

Aditya Roy Kapur is real fun to watch out and looks equally charming like Ranbir. Kalki Koechlin is funny too and very striking.

Good Music
One of the highlights of the film is a special item song by dancing diva Madhuri Dixit. Choreographed by Farah Khan, the track titled Ghagra is Madhuri-smitten Ranbir's introductory song. Following this, there are a few high energy dance numbers like 'Balam pichkari', 'Dilliwali girlfriend', that are already chartbusters. The movie also treats us with a lovely and touchy song 'Kabira'.

Final Verdict
Taking a short break from the daily hectic schedules, here we celebrate love, life and friendship with Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. This new, refreshing flick not to be missed....... Three cheers for this one!
