Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani (2013)


Regan Humphrey

Sheltered and brainy Naina Talwar (Deepika Padukone) is impressive in all areas except when it comes to people. Having always kept to herself, she’s never made any friends. After running into Aditi (Kalki Koechlin), a college classmate, this becomes perfectly clear. To break out of her shell, Naina decides to act spontaneously for once and go on a hiking trip with Aditi and her two best friends, Avi (Aditya Roy Kapur) and Bunny (Ranbir Kapoor). The trip is one she will always remember, especially eight years later when the four friends reunite for Aditi’s wedding.
