Thumbs down Wake Up Sid - Audience dozes off and requires waking up at the end!

Wake Up Sid. Hmmm.. So our film makers thought of naming a film like a Hollywood teen flick.

Well, the story in two lines -
1) Rich spoilt aimless kid has no sense of responsibility
2) Father throws out of house, kid gets sense, audience goes to sleep.

The story is the oft repeated formula where the young, rich, care free, spoilt kid does not finish up college, does not make a career, has no aim. So father throws out the kid. Magically kid gets a understanding of what life is. Movie ends.



The movie is pathetic. I dont know how anyone can tolerate that Ranbir Kapoor's long horse face for so long. Konkona Sen looks like a Savita Bhabhi out to have her way with Ranbir Kapoor.

Extremely boring, insipid and seen too often formula. The best rendition of this oft repeated formula was Lakshya. Same concept but the story was much better as it showed Kargil and our brave soldiers.

Laskhya had Kargil war and it made for some very good viewing. Priety Zinta and

Hrithik were both stupid and boring, but Kargil made up for these two dumb morons.

Re: Wake Up Sid - Audience dozes off and requires waking up at the end!

I totally disagree with you on this... movie was quite watchable and I had a good time. Nine bucks not badly spent although a six pack of heineken or stella artois would have been better.

I think Ranbir acted quite well...(first time I liked his acting... BTW methinks this is the only genre he can ever do) they should have added some hot scenes and faster pace to make the movie better. I would surely give at least 3/5.

Thumbs up Re: Wake Up Sid - Audience dozes off and requires waking up at the end!

hehe, cha pai to jaha karan johar ka naam dekhate hai, form mein aa jate hai

This is one of the better movies of 09. The story might be old, but the narration is effective, though predictable at times, yet the movie is enjoyable overall.

The movie has contemporary looks and treatment to the subject. Presentation is a gripping, with nice blend of fun and emotions. Some of the scenes are picturised with extreme sensibility like the one when Ranbeer is photographing mother and child Music too blends very well with the movie Performances are top notch as well

Overall worth watching
