Movie Review: Cocktail

Cocktail is a Hindi movie featuring Saif Ali Khan, Diana Penty and Deepika Padukone. The movie could best be described as an “old Bollywood formula in a new package.” There is nothing new or extraordinary in the story line.

The movie does have some good moments and the lead characters in the movie are quite lovable. For me, Diana Penty stole the limelight. She was quite a treat to watch.

What to look out for in the movie?

Good locations – the movie is well made, the locations are very good and not to mention the wonderful wardrobe of the characters.

Flashes of humor – the movie does have a few flashes of humor. Not a lot, but just a few flashes here and there.

Lovable characters – the characters in the movie are quite adorable and watchable.

Overall, ‘Cocktail’ is a watchable movie. You won’t walk out of the cinema hall with a wow-feeling nor is it likely going to be your favorite movie. Cocktail does just enough to get passing marks.

Personally, I did NOT like the movie. To me, it was an average movie not worth paying a premium. I would rate Cocktail 2.5 out of 5.
