Half Girlfriend is an upcoming romantic film based on the novel of Chetan Bhagat. The film has been directed by Mohit Suri who was earlier delivered films like Aashiqui 2, Ek Villain and Hamari Adhuri Kahani.
The trailer follows the love story of a small town boy who falls in love with an open minded Delhi girl. Dost Se Zyada, Girlfriend Se Kam is the tagline of the film. The trailer looks half-baked, especially in the first half. Shraddha Kapoor becomes a singer from a basketball player. On the other hand, Arjun Kapoor is searching for Shraddha in the streets of London. Probably the makers did not want to reveal the suspense.
Arjun Kapoor is the perfect misfit as a Bihari boy. He fails to impress especially in the emotional scenes. Considering that it is a love story, there should have been a better actor in the lead. Even Varun Dhawan did a pretty decent job in Badrinath Ki Dulhania. Shraddha Kapoor looks sweet in romantic scenes. Though we would love to see here more in the promo.
The chemistry between the lead pair is missing. Also the drama and romance looks too forced. The trailer’s USP is the music. Mohit Suri has a good ear for music and Half Girlfriend seems to be no exception.
From the trailer, it looks like a mixture of Mohit Suri's all films. There is nothing new or fresh in the promo.
From the box office point of view, the trailer is good. It will attract the audience in masses especially if the music becomes a hit. Shraddha and Arjun also has core following in masses. Our business rating is 3/5.
