4 Stars (out of 4)
Serial heartbreaker Raj (Ranbir Kapoor) gets a taste of his own medicine when he falls for Gayatri (Deepika Padukone), a beautiful, independent woman who’s not ready to settle down. The cast members, including Minissha Lamba and Bipasha Basu as Raj’s jilted ex-girlfriends, give authentic emotional performances in a romantic comedy that draws from classic Bollywood love stories and more recent Hollywood films. Stunning locations, lavish dance numbers, and a charming story help make Bachna Ae Haseeno the most polished movie to come out of India this year.
