Okay, I had some really high expectations from the trailer of Mohit Suri’s Half-Girlfriend. Two reasons behind that- First, the director knows how to portray a Love Story, be it the supremely successful Aashiqui 2 and Ek Villain or the vociferously vilified Hamari Adhuri Kahaani. Second, Shraddha Kapoor. She may not have delivered a powerful or poignant performance but surely has a certain piquancy and vulnerability that make her likable.
Alas, all the expectations have been shattered into smithereens. The trailer just released on social media and the only word to describe it can be Underwhelming. The biggest disappointment here seems to be the leading man, Arjun Kapoor. As a protagonist who struggles to communicate in English and falls head over heels with a college hottie, Kapoor fails to strike a chord, at least here. His pain and anguish never really piercing your heart.
As for Kapoor the leading lady, she looks luminous and has a delightful screen presence, too early to say anything about her acting. All in all, the trailer is not even half as exciting as what was expected.
Based on the Chetan Bhagat’s best selling novel of the same name, the film is all set to arrive at the cinemas on the 19th of May, 2017.
Watch the trailer and decide whether you want to experience Madhav and Riya’s love story or not.
Emotion, romance and drama, ‘Half Girlfriend’ trailer offers everything a moviegoer wants. #HalfGirlfriend
