    Wake up Sid:....open the blocked cubicles in your heart

    The plot may be already seen. But the small emotions, small wishes, big aspirations yet little daily happiness-es makes this film worth watching and appreciating.
    Wake up Sid , fisrt of all do a good justice to the nomenclature of the film. The sleepy nature of Sid may be just symbolic, but its all about waking up from ones own self to a different level, where commitment, responsibilities, togetherness matters. Where life is not all about playstations, emails, junk foods, tequila shots, dancing parties and emptying dad's wallet.

    Wake Up Sid also delivers a strong message to us. We , most of the times, flow with the tide, never looks back whether we are enjoying the ride. We need to listen to our heart, we need to open the blocked cubicles in our mind, we need to answer our own questions.

    Coming to the acting, I think Ranbir finally comes of age. Finally he can say I am proud to be son of Rishi and Nitu, but I am also proud to be RANBIR kapoor. His acting was perfectly suited to the role, his acting was natural, he never appeared throwing dialogues. His little executions of a bumpy kid of a rich father was great, his sudden outburst of emotions and mis behaving with parents was apt. And later in the movie, his slow growth to become a mature responsible friend, son was superb, and in the process, he did not allow to die down the inner child of Siddharth Mehra.

    I did not think I would say this someday, But Kankona looked and acted a little bit stereotype in this movie. Her role and acting was good, as she does in most movies, but it seemed repititive at times. Her dialogue throwing tones did not differentiate her in the movie. Also I think she needs a little makeover, looked pale in some scenes. Or the make-up man might have messed up.But well, anyone else probably wouldn't have fit in this role.

    Watch Sid's waking up. It will un-earth a lot of hidden treasures inside you.
