While many of us adored Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani for its amazing soundtrack, dialogues and some relatable sub-plots, we realized how Bunny was a toxic character and Naina made a mistake choosing him. Recently, we stumbled on a Reddit thread that discussed why YJHD sucks and the responses made real sense.
1. Very Mediocre StoryLine
“I think the top-tier soundtrack distracted the audience from the mediocre/average story I won’t deny the chemistry but like u said the characters were weak AF.” – RokuAang625
2. Average Characters
“I never understood what Deepika has delivered there for which this is considered to be her one of best performance. She is good actress and have done so many better roles. Same for Ranbir.”- Outside_Cellist3740
3. Overrated Movie
“Even if we compare it with similar light wholesome movies wake up Sid is much better. YJHD is highly overrated. It’s not bad but I don’t understand why it is counted as one of the bests.” – Outside_Cellist3740
4. Ranbir’s toxic & manchild character
“Highly overrated. Ranbir’s character was so toxic. The girl chose wrong guy kind of movie for me.”– False-Train878“His behaviour in this particular scene, being extremely possessive and rude about Naina, while also not exactly wanting to commit to her is toxic.”– thriftoe“Movie was a fun watch. But if you see anyone like Kabir in real life, stay away. These kind of people are toxic af. They’ll sell you and your emotions, just to fulfil their small dream. They don’t care how their actions affect others.”– Newbie-investor-ind“That Kabir guy is a walking red flag! So overrated!” – AnybodyDesigner8343 “Popular or not, honestly found this movie a bore, and Ranbir’s man child character refusing to grow up, MEH.”– LoneWolfInCyberia
“Tum jaise ladkiyan flirting ke liye nahi ishq ke liye bani hain”🤡 Yes ofc because Lara is obviously not worthy of love and respect while Naina is pure and chaste and marriage material and shouldn’t be given bhaav while she’s still wearing glasses. Then there’s the engineer being a “ghochu” stereotype. I really excepted better than this from Ayan after Wake Up Sid. Aditi and Avi were the only likeable and believable characters. Real life is not Bunny whose issues are resolved at the end of the movie or Naina who gets to marry her crush whom she has interacted with just for a couple of times on two different trips.” – justshutupkaren
5. Selfish Characters
“I think the movie holds up, but I will say on re-watching, Ranbir and Deepika’s characters make their friend’s weddings all about themselves, which is pretty selfish.” – rnjbond
6. Overrated & Unrealistic Characters
“Gosh. I hated this movie when I first saw it in a theater, and to this day I hate it. Such over-rated unrealistic movie with misleading message. Just 1-2 songs were good. Nothing else.” – Gurgaon1234
