Half the fun

Half the fun
FILM: Half Girlfriend 

A film based on Chetan Bhagat’s book by the same name, Half Girlfriend is a romantic drama, directed by Mohit Suri and starring, Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor in the lead roles. Arjun Kapoor plays a non-English speaking boy from Bihar, while Shraddha plays the role of an elite English-speaking Delhi girl. On the outside, the two of them have nothing in common, but love blossoms in the most unexpected way when Madhav starts to woo Riya.

Nothing great

Neither did I like the film much, nor did I like the book by Bhagat. Arjun is not very convincing in his role and Shraddha Kapoor acts like how she acts in all films. Harpreet Singh, student

Stale affair

There’s nothing new or experimental in the film. It’s the regular ‘poor man falls in love with a rich girl’ story. I did not enjoy watching it at all, maybe because it was so predictable. Puneet Pannu, student

One-time watch

It’s a watchable film. I like the storyline of the film, but not the acting bit. It could have been treated in a better way, so that it could be an entertainer if nothing else. Kshitij Sharma, student

Lingual felicity

FILM: Hindi Medium

Directed by Saket Chaudhary, the film features Irrfan Khan and Pakistani actress Saba Qamar in the lead roles. Hindi Medium is a family-oriented story of a couple, based in Delhi, who is determined that their three-year-old daughter should study in an English medium school.

Relatable film

There’s something very relatable about this film. Irrfan, as usual, is exceptionally good; I have seen Saba acting in a few Pakistani serials that were earlier telecast on Zindagi Channel, so she is good too. Sahiba Singh, homemaker


It’s a good film. I like how the actors fit into their respective roles and the film is quite thought-provoking too. Vaani Singh, student
