Wake Up Sid is a 2009 coming-of-age romantic-comedy movie that portrays the life of a spoilt and carefree young man named Siddharth 'Sid' Mehra. The movie revolves around how Sid transforms from an irresponsible, dependent adult into a responsible, mature and self-dependent individual, with the help of a practical, independent and motivated young woman, Aisha Banerjee.

The movie is set in Mumbai and starts with Sid, a lazy college student, who is having the time of his life, partying and enjoying with his friends, oblivious to the responsibilities of the adult world. He lives with his parents and relies on them for everything, including his pocket money. Despite having no definite aim in life, Sid is content with his aimless existence.

The movie takes a dramatic turn when Sid fails in his final college exams, and his parents reprimand him for his irresponsible attitude towards life. As a result of his parents' wrath, Sid leaves his home and his privileged life to stay with his friend Aisha Banerjee, who is making ends meet in Mumbai by working as a freelance writer. Sid is amazed by Aisha's practicality, independence and hard work. He starts helping her with her work, and during this time, he starts to understand the importance of hard work, commitment and responsibility.

The movie is a journey of Sid's transformation from a dependent, lazy individual to a self-dependent, confident young man. It is also a portrayal of an unconventional romantic relationship between Sid and Aisha, who comes to his rescue during the most challenging phase of his life. Sid's character is portrayed by Ranbir Kapoor, who captures the essence of Sid's transformation beautifully. The character of Aisha is played by Konkona Sen Sharma, who effortlessly portrays the role of an independent, practical and ambitious young woman.

The movie's background score, music and cinematography beautifully capture the essence of Mumbai and its fast-paced life. The relationship between Sid and Aisha is portrayed with subtle nuances and moments of humor, making it a refreshing addition to the romantic genre of Bollywood movies. The movie also has its share of heart-warming moments, which make the audience root for Sid's transformation.

The supporting cast of the movie is equally impressive, with Supriya Pathak playing the role of Sid's caring mother, and Anupam Kher playing the role of Sid's stern but supportive father. Rahul Khanna also appears in a prominent supporting role as Sid's brother-in-law.
