After Hello, 3 Idiots, Kai Po Che and 2 States, Chetan Bhagat's another novel is being adapted into a movie of the same name – Half Girlfriend. The film stars Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor playing the lead characters Madhav and Riya. The trailer of the movie is out and it gives us a glimpse of what the movie is all about.
It starts with Arjun Kapoor as Madhav, a Bihari boy, struggling to speak English in the entrance interview of St. Stephens College, Delhi. It seems that he gets through the interview as soon he falls in love with a Delhi girl Riya, who is way out of his league, in the college. Riya doesn't love Madhav back but proposes to be his half girlfriend.
The trailer also hints that the movie is about one of the most trending topics in the country and film industry – friendzone and one-sided love – and like all the stories that include these two elements, the relationship status of the film's lead pair is also highly complicated. While Madhav is not ready to give up because his mother has taught him so (little did he know that his mother never meant it in this context, but, anyways) and tries to find her in India and abroad, Riya doesn't look half as interested.
Shraddha Kapoor looks decent as a Delhi girl who is following her dreams above all but Arjun's Bihari accent is not up to the mark. Amidst all the chaos and complicated montages, the one thing that catches your eye is Vikrant Massey, who plays the role of Madhav's friend in college from his native place and makes Madhav aware of the tagline of the movie. The background score in the trailer promises prospective chartbusters, especially in the soft romantic genre. Looks like all the one-sided aashiqs and majnus are going to get their anthem of the season through this movie.
But more than the songs or the performances, the viewers and fans will be looking forward to checking if Arjun Kapoor's chemistry with Shraddha Kapoor will be as good or better than his chemistry with Alia Bhatt in 2 States.
We all are eager to know if Madhav will later be able to become Riya's boyfriend or not. But in the meanwhile watch the trailer here:
