    Enjoy the Good Taste till it lasts….

    Cocktail rating: 7 out of 10

    By Divya Solgama(13 Jul 2012)

    If you take a brief summary of Romantic films made in our Hindi Films, one is sure it will lead with a huge margin. Right from the Musical era of the swingin’ 60s till date, film-makers have made different types of films with the ‘Romance’ element as its core ingredient. Some filmmakers took it to the next level with films based on ‘Love Triangle’. Most of the times, as the movie starts, you come to get an idea of who’s going to end up with whom. There are times when you support your favorite actor and wish deeply for him/her to win the beloved’s heart, and then there ... » read more

    A Cocktail that delivers several tastes!

    Cocktail rating: 7 out of 10

    By Irfan Joomun(13 Jul 2012)

    If you are in appreciation of urban rom-coms, then it's mostly a safe bet that Cocktail has been on your waiting hotlist for some months now. From the mouth-watering promos/trailers and the peppy eargasm of its music to the reunion of Love Aaj Kal trio and a new fresh newcomer, Cocktail looks like a perfect package that will leave you high! So intoxicating or not?

    Cocktail's story sounded pretty straight-forward right from its love triangle premises. Meera (Diana Penty) is a quintessential innocent 'desi girl-next door' that comes to London with a mango box and ... » read more

    new age romance

    Cocktail rating: 0 out of 10

    By indranil mukhopadhaya(13 Jul 2012)

    The music,its characters and the spunk are the elements that really drives 'cocktail'.The mix of humour, emotions, friendship,feelings and love is what describes cocktail in brief.The story, written by imtiaz ali and sajid ali is not sumthing that has not been captured in bollywood.Love triangle,friendship-turning-love is a formula or a genre that has generated interest among the film goers from times immemorial.But since it has been captured from the times of amitabh-rekha-jaya to new age saif-deepika-diana, it would be interesting to see how the new generation accepts ... » read more

    Cocktail is let down by its inane plot

    Cocktail rating: 5 out of 10

    By kapil DEV(03 Aug 2012)

    Why, Bollywood, why? Why this cold shower, this Vicky Christina Bar-Bar-Rona? Why must you promise a potent, heady concoction only to water it down with clichéd club soda, like a sadistic bartender? Why must the most modern aspect of a contemporary film be the clothes the actors wear? Why must characters, in a bid to prove how blasé they are, flip themselves the bird while trying on said clothes? And why -- oh lord why -- can't films be as efficiently short as heroines' skirts nowadays are?

    Homi Adajania's brightly glossy Cocktail seems unburdened by any grandiose ... » read more

  • Aditya Prasad

    A 2.5 hours long love quadrangle!

    Cocktail rating: 6 out of 10

    By Aditya Prasad(03 Dec 2012)

    At one point in time you would get so confused that you might even start thinking if Diana and Deepika love each-other or what? Thank god for Saif, else it could have been a different kind of love story! :)

    In short: Gautam (Saif) loves Meera (Diana), Meera is married to Kunal (Randeep Hooda) still loves Gautam, Veronica (Deepika) loves Gautam.

    At one time you will also be forced to believe (almost) Randeep is gay! Beautiful story writing, God damn it! :) You can anyways watch him sizzle with Sunny Leone in Jism2. And no, Sunny Le-One is no sister ... » read more

    Cocktail: A bit of life, love & frenship

    Cocktail rating: 7 out of 10

    By Making things happen :) (09 Jul 2012)

    One of the most talked about films of the year, Cocktail has grabbed much eyeballs for its superhit music, sleek style, beautiful women, and Deepika's sexy red hot bikini show! Since the promos and songs were released, the buzz has kept rising! Expectations are high. Th trio of Imtiaz-Saif-Deepika returns after three years. Homi Adajania, who directed BEING CYRUS is talented film-maker. So, it seems that the film is in safe hands, at least that's what we gather from the film's trailer. Diana Penty has caught the attention of the men folk – she is beautiful, and seems to ... » read more

    Cocktail rating: 7 out of 10

    Cocktail is a 2012 Bollywood romantic comedy film"Cocktail is a
    contemporary film that
    reflects life as it happens all
    around us…. just as crazy, twisted, beautiful, funny,
    weird and lonely as anyone’s
    life can be. It’s about easy
    choices and hard decisions and
    how life still goes on, despite
    it all.i gave the movie
    3.5/5 stars, concluding that
    "Whatever the flaws and dips
    in energy-level, Cocktail is a

Homi Adajania's Cocktail, about mixed-up relationship between three main characters, has appealed to the movie buffs.

The urban romantic drama has got about 90 percent opening on the first day. The numbers are likely to go up during weekend and it will be a profitable venture for actor-producer Saif Ali Khan, distributors say.

Gautam Dutta, COO, PVR, says that the film starring Saif Ali Khan, Deepika Padukone and Diana Penty» Read full review
