The ease and class with which she carries off the glam look is fantastic.She's like a whiff of fresh air and you actually wonder, is she the same girl from Saawariya and Delhi 6?Before starting her career off as an actress, Sonam and Ranbir Kapoor worked as assistant directors under Sanjay Leela Bhansali in 2004, and assisted him during the making of his film, Black which was released in early 2005.Taran Adarsh of Bollywood Hungama commented saying, "Sonam Kapoor is an average actor.With this role rendered so perfectly, Sonam has proven herself to be an actor to watch out for, capable of belting out an entire range of emotions".NDTV Movies also gave a positive review as they wrote, "But the film belongs to Sonam Kapoor, make no mistake of that.Ranbir Kapoor is celebrating his 35th birthday today and the who’s who of Bollywood reached his house last night to wish him.
Her huge eyes portray her emotions and her confidence is personified in every frame; whether she is playfully fooling around with Ranbir or anxiously looking out for her Imaan (Salman Khan) to return. The chemistry between the two is awesome." Naresh K. of said, "Sonam, though undoubtedly gorgeous, seems ill at ease with her part.In fact, I Hate Luv Storys will only multiply Imran and Sonam's fan base manifold." Kapoor also received mainly positive to mixed reviews for her performance.Film critic Sonia Chopra of gave a favourable review stating, "Sonam Kapoor gives an ace performance as the somewhat nasty-sometimes angelic Aisha.Her make up in Thank You is just not right at all, she sometimes looks glamorous and sometime pale on-screen." Her second film of the year was the romance film Mausam, in which she and co-star Shahid Kapoor had four different looks representing each of the four seasons.The film received mixed reviews and was a failure at the box office.
