Yeh Jawani Hai Diwani: Tech portrayal gets accurate


A few quick thoughts on the movie that I watched last Friday:
– Canon is really going all out in India given the number of photographers portrayed in recent movies, and all use Canon gear obviously
– Nice touch (intentional or not) with the Windows XP PC and Internet Explorer 6 being used by Deepika Padukone in the flashback, plus no smartphones either
– The present day of course has our hero Ranbir Kapoor using a MacBook, plus smartphones in the hands of the entire gang
– The MacBook did seem to be a tad outdated though with an older version of iTunes, but it did have Firefox installed
– The movie plot itself was pretty staple stuff as numerous reviews have noted, and Bollywood ladies as usual are a lot less sensitive to the cold as evident from their attire in the freezing Manali weather
