Meera (Diana Penty) is stranded in London after her husband Kunal (Randeep Hooda) refuses to take her home. She meets Veronica (Deepika Padukone). Veronica takes Meera home and allows her to live with her,the two females start staying under the same roof in London.
Gautam, who gets a dream job in London, too moves in with them, under the same roof. Initially, Meera cannot stand the sight of Gautam but manages to bear him as he is her best friend’s boyfriend. When Gautam’s mother (Dimple Kapadia) lands up at their door, he puts up a show of Meera being his girlfriend (rather than Veronica of whom his mother would definitely disapprove). Gautam’s mother immediately approves of the shy, homely Meera and has great plans for their wedding back in India.
Forced to hang out together, Gautam and Meera start liking each other and sparks fly between them. On cue, Veronica decides that she loves Gautam and wants to spend the rest of her life with him.
 Now Gautam has to chose between Meera and Veronica. Unable to decide between the two, he removes himself from their lives but unlike his intentions,this sudden emptiness in both Meera and Veronica's life worsens living for both.
The film beautifully defines enjoyable, entertaining and entangled friendships, these three are perfect friends, staying under one roof. They all have a blast, until love happens. The perfect friendship turns confusing, and love becomes complicated. 

Saif Ali Khan, even at 40, carries his boyish charm effortlessly, and woos the two hotties in the film. Saif Ali Khan looks absolutely well-groomed,. Though he looks a little older as compared to the two young ladies. Saif Ali Khan is very good as the playboy Gautam and equally cute when he tries to win Meera.
Deepika Padukone plays her part of the confused-spoilt-brat-with-a-heart-of-gold quite well. Diana Penty surprises with an apt performance as the subdued Meera (though she didn’t have much of emoting in the film). BomanIrani is really enjoyable as Saif’s uncle. Dimple Kapadia is good as Saif’s mother.
Homi Adajania’s direction is alright. While he has chosen a bland story, he’s handled it quite well. Much of the credit also goes to cinematographer Anil Mehta. 

Music: Music is just 'WOW'. The foot tapping, peppy number 'Tumhi Ho Bandhu' is fast becoming an anthem for youngsters. And, 'Daru Desi', an innovative desi friendship number is already a rage. Pritam's music is captivating, that leaves you refreshed.

What’s Gud: 
  • The screenplay and dialogues are good.
  • Pritam’s music is highlight of the movie.
  • The performances of lead actor and actresses is mind blowing.
  • Camera work is good

What’s Bad:
  • The story is really predictable and the second half brings the movie down.
  • There are unexplained parts in the movie that confuse the viewer.
  • Movie is specially made for multiplex and big cities audience,small city audience would not like the movie.
  • Most of the people would not like climax of the movie.

Verdict: Cocktail is a nice and enjoyable movie for the dialogues, songs, and performances. But the second half is boring.

Watch or Not? Watch it for the enjoyable and funny first half and for the performance of the lead actors.
