When I saw Kajol do a cameo jig in the song Disco Deewane my mind went back to 1998 and to Kuch Kuch Hota Hai in which she said “mera pehla pyar adhura reh gaya riffat bi" and the song Tujhe yaad na meri aayi kisise ab kya kehna. that film for me has always been about that line and that song. Everything else was glossy entertainment. It was fresh and for a 21 year old me highly romantic.

Cut to 2012. Karan Johar is back with a youthful film introducing newcomers in the lead for the first time as a director.

Set against a backdrop of a world that reminds you of the still fresh Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander, Soty is less a love story and more of a comment on the education system in India. It's a story about friendship and the competition of life.

So you have a rich spoilt brat Rohan (Varun Dhawan) and an ambitious poor boy Abhi (Sidharth Malhotra) fighting over the trophy of student of the year getting their love life triangled for Shanaya (Alia Bhatt) along the way.

Shahrukh Khan produced a youth film on his own and failed. Yashraj tried too with several films and got it right with Mujhse Fraandship Karoge but Karan Johar proves it that to give the audience a fresh batch of newcomers you have to give them in larger than life doses.

It takes time to warm up to the newcomers but at the end they succeed at leaving a good first impression on your mind. Sidharth Malhotra shines the best amongst all but my favorite performance was by Boman Irani's son Kayoze Irani as pseudo.

Give me a Karan Johar of Soty over him doing a My name is Khan or Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna and I have no complaints.

he film doesn't speak to my generation which I realized after chatting with an 8 year old girl who is a big fan of this film. Especially it's songs and Sidharth Malhotra.

Word of mouth - If you can't get Kuch kuch hota hai out of your head while watching Soty, stay away. But if you can enjoy the film for what it is go ahead and enjoy escapist cinema at its best.

Rating - 3.5 (good)
