Verdict - One feels sorry for Arjun Kapoor , he gave his all to this drag movie !
Half girlfriend !
There are a few good things in Half Girlfriend .Arjun Kapoor and Shradha Kapoor have put in a sincere effort. The music is good enough , particualrly "main phir bhee tum ko chahoonga" is hummable.
Shradha Kapoor is fast becoming the current generation of Bollywood makers answer to Meena Kumari. "ek villain" , "aasiqui2" , "rockon2" and now "half girlfriend" - they are only giving her roles where every possible tragedy on screen visits her. Now that is not the problem, its her and director's prerogative as to how she is put across on screen. Only it is becoming repetitive and boring as Emran Hashmi's lover roles and Govinda's "number one" acts in the past.
The other problem of "half girlfriend" is trying to push across too many plot objectives to us. The movie talks romance, tragedy, women's right to education , english-hindi class divides etc. It does have some well written dialogues and good screen moments BUT it reaches nowhere.
A simple small city guy arrives in a posh college and a good earthy love story evolves. For about half an hour the moment holds your attention.Then the movie gets lost in multiple directions.
The other problem of "Half Girlfriend" is that the climax is a bit similar to "Ae Dil hai mushkil" we have seen a earthy sincere boy trying to give good moments to a dying complicated head strong girl there too.
Frankly post "kalyug" , "murder2" and "zeher" I expected better from Mohit Suri , hope he gets back to those crime dramas soon. This half girlfriend is worth just one star that too for Arjun Kapoor.
