Story

Half Girlfriend is all about Madhav Jha (Arjun Kapoor) who hails from a royal Bihari family. He gets admitted in Delhi’s St. Stephens College under the sports quota where he meets Riya Somani (Shraddha Kapoor) and falls for her. Basketball is the common thing that bonds them and Riya turns to be his half girlfriend after Madhav gets a clear note that he doesn’t fit in this English medium world. An unexpected incident makes Riya walk out of the relation after which she gets married to Rohan. The rest of the film is all about what happens next.

Half Girlfriend has a half baked plot which spoils the entire film. Half Girlfriend is better as a novel than to be made as a movie. The first half has been filled with characters which are mostly confused. Most of the episodes look faked and the love story too has not been well narrated. The interval episodes have been well showcased and the songs have been just ok. On the whole the first half of Half Girlfriend looks passable with lot of flaws and unwanted episodes.

The second half of Half Girlfriend dips down completely because of the slammed screenplay and the poor narration. The emotional episodes lack interest and the songs turn barriers. The pre-climax episodes irritates the audience completely and a simple, predictable climax makes Half Girlfriend a massive debacle.

Performance :

Arjun Kapoor has been decent and he tries his best to save the film with his performance. The actor needs to work on his expressions and Arjun did his job well. Shraddha Kapoor is okay and can do a lot more than just thigh show for sure. She has the potential of doing better. Vikrant Massey and Rhea Chakraborty have been quite decent in their supportive roles. All the other actors delivered out their best.

The story of Half Girlfriend has interesting to make it into a feature film. The screenplay and dialogues make the film a silly tale out of a predictable and boring plot. The cinematography work has been extremely decent and the songs looked good on screen. The editing should have been good and the production values have been lavish enough. The director fails in all the available ways in churning out Half Girlfriend as a decent emotional entertainer.

Final Word

Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor try hard to pull out the movie but Half Girlfriend ends up as one of the biggest debacles in the recent times.

    Bareilly Ki Barfi Movie Review

    Bareilly Ki Barfi has been inspired from a French novel 'Ingredients of Love'. The movie has been adopted as per the nativity of Uttar Pradesh. The first half of Bareilly Ki Barfi has been entertaining however most of the episodes look dragged and some of them spotted unnecessary. The performances by the lead actors and the songs have been decent which makes the first half of Bareilly Ki Barfi passable. The second half of Bareilly Ki Barfi struggles as the director misses the major plot. Focused much on unwanted issues, the second half of Bareilly Ki Barfi is an utter disappointment. Once again, the lead actors top the show and it is the entertainment which makes the film sound decent at times. The climax looks simple and on the whole, the second half of Bareilly Ki Barfi fails to live up the expectations.

    Toilet: Ek Prem Katha Movie Review

    Toilet: Ek Prem Katha starts on a slow note as it takes enough time to reveal about the behavior of the characters. The first half of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha has been packed with hilarious entertainment which come along with the plot. Some of the songs have been forcefully injected into the plot however some of them have been shot well. On the whole, the first half of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha looks decent with packed entertainment. The second half of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha too has been interesting and reveals a strong social message. Some of the episodes have been dragged too much and the songs are huge barriers for the film. The film has many interesting episodes which strike hard about the problems faced by women across many villages of the country. On the whole the second half of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha has been ok which has been balanced with good and bad episodes throughout.

    Jab Harry Met Sejal Movie Review

    Jab Harry Met Sejal has many layers and some of them have been well narrated. The entire first half has been passable but it is the slow plot and some unwanted episodes that kill the film’s flavour completely. The songs look decent and they have been shot well. The quirky comedy and the narration makes the first half of Jab Harry Met Sejal passable. The second half of the movie looks dragged and some of the episodes have been hurried which are quite crucial. Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma have been extremely impressive in their roles. The locations and the cinematography are the major highlights of the second half. The climax has been shot well and impresses the audience. On the whole, the second half of Jab Harry Met Sejal disappoints.

    Mubarakan Movie Review

    Mubarakan is completely based on comedy and is a hilarious laugh riot right from the first frame. The story has been framed well and the songs have been placed and shot well. Anil Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor carried the film well and they are the major highlights of the movie. Their comic timing has been simply superb and the entire first half has been filled with loads of entertainment.The second half of Mubarakan too has been laced with enough entertainment however the film dips down at times. Some of the episodes look dragged and some of them have been hurried. The entire second half looks predictable and the climax has been simple, rushed. On the whole the entire second half has been ok.

    Indu Sarkar Movie Review

    Indu Sarkar has many interesting and realistic episodes and the film showcases the struggle of a woman. Each and every character has been well written and well presented. With an interesting twist, the first half convinces the audience and Madhur Bhandarkar works hard not to miss his mark. The dialouges are the major assets of the film. The second half of Indu Sarkar has been completely focussed on the struggle and Indu Sarkar may not appeal to all the sections of audience. However the gripping narration and the power packed performances lead the film completely. The pre-climax episodes heat up the film and the climax has been well presented. On the whole, Indu Sarkar has been decent but it may not appeal to all the sections of audience.

    Munna Michael Movie Review

    Munna Micheal starts on an interesting note however the film loses the grip. Most of the episodes look fake and the characters have not been written well. The songs and the performances by the lead actors have been impressive and lot of time has been wasted for the major plot to be unveiled. There is no strong purpose, but Munna shifts his base to Delhi suddenly. On the whole the first half of Munna Micheal has been below the average line and makes no impact.The second half of Munna Micheal has been completely half baked and it makes no sense. The performances by the lead actors has been completely impressive but the rest of the movie is a huge misfire. The songs have been shot well and Niddhi has been presented in a glamorous way. The second half looks confused and clumsy. The climax looks like everyone in the film along with the audience have been lost. On the whole, Munna Micheal is a complete misfire in all the available ways.
