A glimmering school campus filled with kids busy in flaunting their 8 packs than going for their lifelong dream of making it to a ivy league college, a poor kid who doesn't own a ferrari (poor guy only had designer clothes,branded sunglasses and a bike :( ) and chics that would bring Fashion week models to shame i.e a perfect setting for a KJO movie.Its not the setting that hurts as we are used to KJO-genre-movies,what hurts it beneath that gloss and makeup there used to be a story,emotions and some genuine hillarious scenes in his earlier movies which were completely missing from SOTY. Their isn't much of a story but treatment could have been better.Out of debutants varun dhawan steals the show with a confident performance,allya bhatt looked natural,siddharth malhotra looked charming but needs to work a lot on his acting.The only positive was a couple of good songs and a splendid performance by rishi kapoor

A one time watch with a cute experience.
Just when you read the director's name as KJo, you must make note of that the movie comprises of all the glamour in the world. The movie depicts three debutants in the lead roles Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt and Siddharth Malhotra. They all study in a school where girls are seen wearing mini-skirts and beating even the fashionistas and guys coming to college in a Ferrari with designer clothes and astonishing look.
Yup, you see all this in a Karan Johar movie. This movie lacks the uniqueness when it comes to script and the screenplay. The school holds a competition for the Student Of The Year with almost all aspects of talents being tested. It takes an epic turn when the movie is torn apart with the two different acts are being overlapped that is the competitiveness among the students and the love triangle between the lead actors.
Even though, the director manages to combine everything in an interesting manner, what it leaves out the common sense and logic behind the procedural of the plot. Music is one of the exciting packages of the film with many of the songs topping the charts. Altogether, it lacks reality and logical sense, it provides an awful experience with Varun Dhawan and Siddharth Malhotra delivering a hot performance. Alia looks to be over-doing things at times.
A 3/5 for the direction and the cast making the movie a decent one in the recent times.

It was curiosity about Varun Dhawan, who has been cast as a lead in the Bollywood remake of Fault in Our Stars (with Deepika), that led me to check out this Karan Johar film. SOTY is set at a junior college where the gay dean (Rishi Kapoor) has an annual contest for, you guessed it, the Student of the Year to win a scholarship to an international college. And this contest is not just academic, there is a triathlon, a scavenger hunt AND a dance contest. The film begins with the group of former students gathering at the hospital bedside of the dying dean, and then flashes back 10 years in the past.

Evidently, it was quite notable that Karan Johar debuted several young actors and actresses in this film, rather than matching one unknown with an established actor/actress. Of the students, only the college vamp is played by a familiar face, Sana Saeed albeit when she was a child actress in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai as little Anjuli.

This film reminds me of John Hughes films of the 80's with the rich kids pitted against the scholarship kids from the Indian equivalent to the wrong side of the tracks. Or Gossip Girl or The O.C., etc. Karan Johar is just SO good at setting up melodramatic love triangles. Varun is the rich kid and Sidharth Molhotra the scholarship kid, and Alia Bhatt plays the rich girl that they both love. I had not seen any films with these three young new actors, and while all are good, Sidharth Molhotra's performance is the standout. (Seems like all the Indian awards agreed, nominating him for best male debut.) Very Ben MacKenzie (a la O.C.) silently pining over the rich girl while trying to act all tough.

Also notable was a supporting role by Kayoze Irani who gets a big "Go to Hell Dean" speech near the end, who it turns out is Boman Irani's son. Huh, fancy that, a child of a Bollywood star getting a role in a KJo film. ;) Boman, Kajol and Farah Khan all have cameo appearances.

Fairly predicable plot with the Bollywood emphasis more on the bromance of the two male leads than on the romance of Sidharth and Alia's characters. Karan Johar is masterful at taking you on that emotional journey, and I tip my hat to him. Very entertaining and enjoyable.

Cutest movie ever!!!
All three stars are sooo cuteee.
But sidharth malhotra is a guy to die for. That song kukkad kamaal da, he is actually a very kamaal da munda!
He just needs a little dancing classes but yes he is tall handsome everything a girl would ever want.
Alia Bhatt looks like a choti bachi but cute bacchhii.
ANd Varun Dhawan is equally good..do watch humpty sharma
The movie is a good threesome!
