Cocktail is a best romantic movie of 2012 starring romance king Siaf Ali Khan, pretty Deepika Padukone and Diana Penty with innocent looks done great job. There’s no doubt in this thing that Imtiaz Ali is best Bollywood romantic screenwriter and director. He made and wrote some blockbuster romantic movies such Jab We Met, Love Aaj Kal and Rockstar. But this time collaboration couldn’t be much useful for him. Imtiaz Ali is best alone and he won’t need a collaborator ever.
There’s no doubt in this thing that Boman Irani is Bollywood comedy king but because poor direction and a little bit poor screenwriting Boman Irani couldn’t show his comedy guts fully as much as he showed in 3 Idiots and Munna Bhai M.B.B.S.
Cocktail’s an awesome romantic story but something is missing, not perfect type of thing Imtiaz Ali could wrote this time because another screenwriter collaborated with him and ruined Imtiaz Ali’s creativity too. Moreover, direction was poor and not so well.
Saif Al Khan isn’t suitable for role of 32 years old guy even with beard. Shaved Saif Ali Khan looks younger and naughty which could be suitable for the role. But director made a mistake about that thing.
There are many professional film persons in Cocktail but still professionalism is missing because of few mistakes made by young director and new screenwriter.
With all those mistakes Cocktail earned more than expected even movie earning is more than its budget. But that could be more awesome if Imtiaz Ali direct and write Cocktail himself only.
