Entertainment Value: 5/5
Family Friendly : For the most part (except one heavy duty kissing scene)
Artistic Value: 3/5 (if you want Kurasawa-quality, skip this and rent some depressing flick where everyone dies.) 

This is one movie that is going to appeal to pretty much every demographic in India, although I think it holds special appeal for the urban/NRI junta. Ayushman Khurana is just as good as he was in Vicky Donor. Directed by Rohan Sippy, this movie reminds you of Bluffmaster with it's slick direction, earthy comedy sandwiched between hip urban situations, and his trademark catchy music. The biggest laughs, with due respect to the phenomenal script, come from Kunal Roy Kapoor who was also seen as one of Imran's room-mates in Delhi-Belly (remember the guy that eats fried chicken from a filthy street vendor). Here, he is a suicidal loser  and is totally convincing as a bumbling, down-on-luck, small-town Maharashtrian. The actresses are all drop-dead gorgeous, again, another Rohan Sippy staple. The Marathi and Gujarati dialog bits interspersed in the movie are a very sweet touch. The music is amazing for the most part - I especially loved the "Dhak Dhak karne laga" remix. I say, don't miss this one !
