Wake up Sid.. yet again..

And again and again and again. I am watching this movie the umpteenth time.

About 2 years ago, I had written a post on the same movie..  Wake Up Sid, Yawwwn  the title was!! I really cannot fathom why I was yawning throughout or why I called it a movie that college kids would be attracted to. What was I thinking!!!

I am watching the movie now as I speak. And everytime it comes on TV, I watch it. And I have it on my laptop as well.. I watch it when I am feeling restless and dont have anything "feel good" to watch. And like today, I was just channel surfing, came upon this movie and stopped.

I love it every time I watch it. Why you ask - I dont know. Its so refreshing a movie. Maybe in some parts I identify with the independence Konkona displays.. the cooped up feeling that Ranbir talks about.. the idea of being with someone with certain particular traits that all of us dream about and realise that in real life, things are so different.

I like it for the portrayal of love they show in the movie - the warmth and comfort. It is so nice!! Makes me feel very happy..yeah, this movie does.

I take back the critique I wrote 2 years back. This movie should have got and gets 5 stars from me!!!

It is a nice movie. Though I did not like the Ranbir-Konkona pairing. Konkona is a far better actor and Ranbir a better looker.

I didn't like it all that much. Found it OK for a one-time watch. And Ranbir-Konkona's pairing WAS quite off.

@Knife factual issues? What are they?

@Gobri Ranbir is also quite a good actor actually.. Konkona definitely better though. :) It is quite a feel good movie!!

@Scarlett Thats what I thought the first time I watched it.. but now I quite enjoy it!!!

I quite like Wake Up Sid too. Its so understated and warm at the same time. When I had first heard of it I had found Ranbir-Konkona pair a little weird but after I saw the movie, I realized how right they were for the parts and therefore together. But the highlight of the movie for me - Iktara. Love that song; it instantly takes me to a long walk on the beach, while the sun sets.

@melee The pairing was weird for sure!!! But a lovely movie..

@bluestocking Iktara is a rocking song. So beautiful and definitely timeless.

Wierd pairing and quite unimaginable prior to the release...but after watching it, i think, the wierdness, or rather the stark contrast of the characters, was meant to be....
and i so so related to konkona's character... loved the movie
