The first half breezes through, but post interval proceedings hang; in tandem with the hangdog expression worn by the hero. Arjun is sincere, but seems too urban for an ideal `Bihari’ fit. And Shraddha, who looks her loveliest here, lacks gravitas.

Is a girl who keeps giving a guy a little hand-out, but keeps pulling back when asked for more, a ‘half girlfriend’? The film taps into, and speaks to the half-cooked, confused desires of a certain kind of male (in this instance North Indian/ Bihari) when he gets Madhav’s roommate at St Steven’s College, yes, modeled on that College which uses the capital c with dead seriousness, without a shred of irony, to say: ‘yeh aadha, pauna, chauthai kya hai’?

There is an absolute lack of intensity between the lead actors and everything is so clichéd. India’s dominating, high society father to Bharat’s strong and silent mother, you have seen it all.

And then, there is an escapist Riya Somani whose logic sounds as funny as Jha’s Hindi. Brand placements and advertisements of ‘beti bachao, beti padhao’ make Half Girlfriend even more discreet.

In the end, it remains the story of a friend-zoned Arjun Kapoor who doesn’t know how to wriggle out of a destructive relationship. I can ignore his accent, but how can I not see his unwillingness to do justice to his role?

Half Girlfriend is confused, forced and takes the audience for granted. In one word: disappointing.

I  would recommend going to a restaurant or café, chatting with friends, reading a good book, getting a spa done or whatever, just whatever that makes you happy and keeps you occupied during the weekend rather than watching this boring, silly tale. If you are indeed planning to watch Half Girlfriend, don’t tell me that I didn’t warn you before! I couldn’t rate it more than a single star.
