On its second Friday, Half Girlfriend clashed with the much-awaited Sachin: A Billion Dreams, the biopic on Sachin Tendulkar. Half Girlfriend is also to compete with Hollywood release Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales this week onwards.
The film, which is based on Chetan Bhagat's novel Half Girlfriend, casts Shraddha Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor as students of a Delhi college, who are also basketball enthusiasts. In his review for NDTV, Raja Sen explains the title of the film though a summarisation of the story. "Riya is visibly fond of Madhav and loves being with him, but, at 19, is wary of the girlfriend tag and what it may entail. All systems seem go: She's making him meet her folks, she's using the word 'us' to describe them, she's initiating the first kiss, she's singing lovesongs to him across a crowded lawn. This warmth is countered by bewildering bouts of insecurity from the otherwise devoted but semantically obsessed Madhav, who disregards her affectionate requests to take things slow by manhandling her, and snapping that she should bed him or buzz off. She chooses the latter," writes Mr Sen.
Half Girlfriend marks Shraddha and Arjun Kapoor's first film together.
