The film’s title and promos suggest the protagonist is an overprivileged Boy-Without-Ambition. No surprises there.

Wake Up Sid can’t match Dil Chahta Hai, which even eight years later remains Bollywood’s gold standard for coming-of-age movies. I’m going with a generous three stars and recommending Wake Up Sid with reservations.

Having said that, a superlative Ranbir makes it too darn hard to notice.

Mukerji has mentioned that his film is a little like Dil Chahta Hai (Farhan Akhtar, 2001) and Luck by Chance (Zoya Akhtar, 2009) and he’s not wrong. Wake Up Sid - like these films - has a youthful feel to it, a knack for character development, humor and a

While "Wake Up Sid" would of course raise Ranbir's stock in months to come it would be noticed in a major way for Mukerji's script sense and direction. He makes the kind of debut that made Farhan Akhtar hot property after "Dil Chahta Hai".

Shankar Ehsaan Loy changed the way Bollywood music sounded with the seminal Dil Chahta Hai -- a film about a bunch of laid back city boys growing up and finding love.
