- Half Girlfriend is based on the popular author Chetan Bhagat’s best-selling novel by the same name.
- Madhav Jha (Arjun Kapoor) is a rural boy struggling to speak the “inglish” language.
- He aspires to get admission in an English speaking college to pursue his passion for sports.
- Regardless of his linguistic challenge, Madhav is a Prince of his own town in Bihar.
- He meets Riya Somani (Shraddha Kapoor) who’s the total opposite to him in every sense.
- Madhav falls for Riya but she doesn’t want to accept it and even when she does, it’s only half-done – the concept of “Half Girlfriend.”
- The film features dramatic and emotional scenes but you can connect with certain situations wherein Madhav exposes his vulnerability towards Riya.
- The second half is set in New York.
- The crackling chemistry of Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor is the saving grace!
- Arjun Kapoor has done complete justice with the role.
- His innocence and vulnerability make you fall in love with him.
- Mohit Suri creates stand out scenes blending with the plotline is perfect.
- Shraddha Kapoor looks good as a typical “urban” girl.
- Vikrant Massey in the role of Madhav’s roommate is commendable.
- The first half has a better structure and seems more cohesive as compared to the second half.
- Big climax revelations are too bumpy.
- Some over the top moments ruin the subtlety of a love story.
Go and watch out Half Girlfriend for Arjun Kapoor’s STUNNING & STELLAR performance!
