had a lot of expectations through this motion picture..and it hardly disappointed.... Don't be shocked if you discover Ranbir Kapoor becoming 1 of the greatest actors of bollywood history in 10-15 years..he can do any variety of roles and do without breaking a drop of sweat.. This was RK's best performance till date..Priyanka Chopra portrayed her part brilliantly however it was pleasantly shocking to see a south girl generating so awesome..Ileana was the soothing factor amidst the madness of Barfi n Jhilmil!Good to discover Saurabh Shukla back.. Pritam comes back with a bang..all his songs are cool towards the ears n fit the movie as well.. last however not the least we talk about Anurag Basu..after Kites's disaster i thought he can be lost..he just nails this one
