wogma rating: Buy the DVD already (?)
quick review:

It is an amazingly mature film. Who would have thought that could be said about a 100% family drama?

Anything with Alia Bhatt intrinsically seems like it brings a breath of freshness with it. And then you have the stunning makeover for Rishi Kapoor. Off late, he hasn't disappointed with his performances and the rest of the cast looks like they are one with their characters too. Beyond that thought, the trailer becomes a combination of any ol' love triangle and family drama that you might have seen in real life.

The heavy promotion on social media goes with the 'young' feeling the film has. But, beyond that it has a Yeh Dillagi feel to it – two brothers fall for the same woman. However, there is an angle of brothers fighting over her rather than sacrificing with each other – which a pleasant (because it seems more real) contemporary air about it.

The music too sounds modern. However, doesn't feel like it will overstay a one-time listen. Let's hope it goes better with the film and adds to the experience.
