Rohan Nanda (Varun Dhawan), scion of the Nanda Group of Industries, a rockstar in the making, he is the top contender of the ‘Student of the Year 2012’ title at St. Teresa. Shanaya Singhania (Alia Bhatt), rich and popular, is the best looking girl in school. Enters Abhimanyu Singh (Sidharth Malhotra), the new admission and the only one who is promising enough to beat Rohan and grab the trophy. Talking about the story, there actually is no novelty in it but Karan Johar’s direction and the screenplay takes it notches higher. The film has emotions in abundance and that’s what every person in a theatre will relate to, be it a school-going kid, a Teenager in love, a mid aged middle class man or your loving grand mom. Nostalgia is what the film hugely banks on and that works quite in its favour.
