2. "My lehenga has to be more expensive that the cousin's lehenga" says Alia in the movie.
3. There's absolutely no need for Indian men to be good at studies or have a good career. All our girls prefer here are boys-next-door. Guys who go blackmailing the professor to pass them in the exams (like varun in the movie) , get our girls turned on much more than a suave and sophisticated Doctor (poor Sidhartha Shukla in the movie).
4. Best friends, in India, have no other work to do than follow you around wherever you go and get things sorted for you. I wonder what would poor Poplu and Shonty in the movie do once Alia and Varun settle down. Their life would become meaningless and job-less as all they seem to be doing in the entire movie is circling around Varun and doing things for him and have absolutely no life of their own.
5. No matter how much we develop, patriarchy still rules at our homes. Our mothers shall hardly have any roles in making decisions and always tell daughters like Alia's mother does in the movie "ye papa ka faisla hai, ye hi final hai" .
