The charm behind the 2012 film, Student of the Year was that it was completely fresh – in fact, it almost smelled citrusy. The stars were new, thanks to the pre-Instagram generation, we didn’t know much about them. Alia Bhatt became Shanaya, Sidharth Malhotra was Abhimanyu – the kukkad kamaal da and Varun Dhawan was Rohan through and through.

The thing with the SOTY 2 trailer is that while it is peppy, hip and seems fun, it’s nothing we’ve not seen before. Are we expecting too much? Not, really. Ananya Panday as the bitchy princess seems almost miscast – the role would have perhaps suited Tara Sutaria better. Tara Sutaria seems to be doing a good job, from what we can see in the trailer. Tiger Shroff has a good body but its nothing that we’ve not seen plastered all over our Instagram feed.

Here’s hoping the movie will be better because God, we are truly looking forward to this movie. Work your magic, Karan Johar.
