Cocktail starts off headily enough, and bubbles along till half time; post that, the sips get diluted, and the swallows take much longer.

This cocktail is more virgin than bloody Mary.

Cocktail is a fun, romantic romp.

Okay, so this film might have its flaws, I hear you. However, the film has a lot which makes it just right for when you need a break: the breezy, first half; the early 2010s, Bollywood pop; and fantastic performance from debutante Diana Penty...

A heady blend of terse dialogue, slick cinematography, an electric soundtrack and engaging characters, Cocktail will appeal in particular to the margarita-swilling members of the audience.

Despite a predictable plot, director Imtiaz Ali gives this run-of-the-mill love triangle a fresh makeover.

Audience Reviews for Cocktail


A great entertainer and a certain winner among the youth. The story lacks penetration but the actors do an OUTSTANDING job of not making us know that. Deepika Padukone is fantastic as Veronica while Saif Ali Khan does very well as Gautam. Diana is great (if considering that its her first film). All in all its a great film, full laughs and love. Could have been a little shorter and certainly could have had a more dramatic ending (with the story that was being told in the 1st half) but it is still is a great entertainer and decent enough love story after long, long time (since Jab We Met).
