Like Homi Adajania's Cocktail trailer? Tell Us!

Raja Sen in Mumbai

It's been quite a while since we heard from Homi Adajania since his quirky directorial debut Being Cyrus, and now the director's back with a film that's already looking very fresh.

Saif Ali Khan stars and produces, alongside his Love Aaj Kal leading lady Deepika Padukone and debutant Diana Penty, and the film is written by Rockstar director Imtiaz Ali.

The three characters look clearly delineated. Saif's Gautam is a flirt and a bit of a cad, Diana's Meera looks to be curious but conservative, and Deepika's Veronica is an alcohol-fuelled party animal with an aversion to clothing.

The film's feel is glossy and fun, and Gautam looks to have lucked into the middle of two very pretty roommates. Padukone's character is casually scandalous while Penty's just striking. The trailer has a vibrant, bouncy energy, and Saif seems to be having more fun than he has in a long, long time.

There are some fun moments with Dimple Kapadia and Boman Irani, and enough lines to ensure our smiling curiosity.

Here's to Homi turning out to be a good bartender.
