a long time blindspot for me; maybe i'm overrating this but i'm in total awe of the restrained shot choices, the almost mann-esque approach to intimacy, the reverence for Bollywood melodrama that informs the narrative, one that is purely about how we understand, misunderstand, and reconcile with love (male friendships are SO DAMN BEAUTIFUL)
perhaps this movie just hit me at the right time, a time when i'm contemplating my future and questioning what my purpose is -- but a certainty is that NO industry is as real about male friendship as Bollywood. It always frustrates me when American films revert to fake macho posturing (and demean women in the process) when dealing with stuff like this.
cherish your friendships, reflect on your mistakes, rebuild a bridge, always remind your family that you love them...
I love this movie, and I love Farhan Akhtar.
