    The film is a telling tale on how the ‘haves’ live life- Complete with yacht cruises, designer vacation wear and the ultimate status symbol on display- a pet which has its own eccentrically adorable identity. The film is about an upper class family wherein the head of the household, Kamal Mehra(Anil Kapoor) is a businessman who is now bankrupt. His wife Neelam(Shefali Shah) is lonely and frustrated, while their children Kabir(Ranveer Singh) and Ayesha(Priyanka Chopra) have their own battles to fight. Kabir wants to be a pilot but his father coerces him to inherit his business as he is their only son. On the other hand, Ayesha who is married to Manav(Rahul Bose) is unhappy with her married life and is inclined towards being a successful entrepreneur. Sunny and Farah played by Farhan Akhtar and Anushka Sharma respectively play love interests of Ayesha and Kabir. The film’s plot is pretty interesting, as it showcases a crazy messed up family of the Mehras. The film’s first half is gripping and engaging while in the second half the film seems to drag a bit. The end according to me was abrupt and didn’t make any sense. For me the star of the show was Shefali Shah as Neelam Mehra, who played her character effortlessly and in a convincing manner.
