Romance comes easy to Saif Ali Khan. He slips into the romantic characters, playing the uber-cool, trendy, suave, metrosexual guy with elegance. Films such as DIL CHAHTA HAI, KAL HO NAA HO, HUM TUM, SALAAM NAMASTE and LOVE AAJ KAL only consolidated and cemented his status in this genre. Thats one of the prime reasons why COCKTAIL generates curiosity. But this ones about love and friendship. A tug-of-war of sorts.

Whip and fluff up the three and the title seems completely justified. Also, the three characters experience a cocktail of emotions: Love, lust, laughter and of course, all that comes with heart-break.
Homi Adajania, who made his directorial debut with BEING CYRUS, attempts a rom-com in COCKTAIL with effortless ease, handling a number of sequences with dexterity. Come to think of it, COCKTAIL is a complex film, which reflects the complexity and intricacies of human relationships.
