He is as brilliant as superstars like Hrithik and Ranbir were in their first films!
- Rahul Nanda (Filmfare) – No one makes you fall in love like Karan Johar. An awesome breezy, flick he has sculpted. Emotions and moments are pat in place. 3 stars are born! What a canvas Varun, Aalia and Sid have and they make the most of it at every level. Reminded me of Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. I’m in love. Ishq wala love, radha and disco deewane had me dancing in the theatre itself. Also Kajol’s guest appearance was super! Left me wanting more. The supporting cast is also the heart of Student Of The Year. Sana Sayeed u little beauty. Lifted the film with no expression out of place. Also Kaizo.
- Tanuj Garg (CEO Balaji Motion Pictures) – An emotional and entertaining take on friendship.. enjoyed ‘Student of the Year’.. well done Karan Johar! I luv my school friends even more! The debutants are stars.. supremely confident.. Varun, Sid and Alia shine and how! Needless to mention, our good ol’ Rishi Kapoor!
