Summing it up, Bachna Ae Haseeno does have those bits and parts that make for engaging viewing. But these parts are few and far between. Whenever Ranbhir shares the screen with Hiten Paintal and Bipasha Basu, we are treated with some endearing moments.
As a movie, the director takes no risks with the treatment, the story does have a unique idea set for the second half, but it ends up looking silly. Those who are used to formula may just say," Not bad." A predictable plot with new faces, Bachna... can be watched once and forgotten. Vishal-Shekhar's music may stay with you though.
Hiten Paintal as Ranbhir's friend is the best of the lot, Bipasha puts in her best performance to date, Minissha is engaging in the first half, Deepika disappoints - just not getting under the skin of the character. Ranbhir carries on the uncanny knack of being a Kapoor and being a talent that can only bloom, depending on the roles he may choose.
Yash Raj Productions took the risk with Chak De! India, why are they hesistant to take the risk again?
