Acting

Now who can I say about Robert De Niro. His expressions ruled the entire Scene!
He didn't even need to say the dialogue and you can literally feel the emotion.
Anne Hathaway was also good at her job.Coping up with Robert De Niro is however a big deal. 
90/100 for actors
  


Direction

Nancy Meyers has done an excellent job in terms of catching each and every emotion of the characters.
But however we have seen similar movies in terms of direction so nothing extra ordinary here. 
70/100 for direction

Dialogues

The lines written here were upto mark. There were moments in the movie where the dialogues makes you laugh and cry at the same time!
60/100 for the dialogues.


Screenplay

Scenes where written such that every part of the movie would touch your soul.
Screenplay supported actors very much.
90/100 for the screenplay writer.

Editing

The job could have been much much better .
Some scenes though nicely written felt a drag for the movie.
40/100

Story
The movie revolves around two characters viz.
1) A senior citizen (Ben) ,bored of life,finding something new and exciting for his age.
2) A workoholic girl (Jules) CEO of a successful online shopping website who face a lot of issues from her investors on one side and from her husband on the other .
Her investors find her inexperoanced and so suggest her a new CEO to help her out.
The husband is a full time father and seeks time from her, saying that he starts cheating on her and later realizes his mistake.
The story is quite unusual as this man in his 70s opts a job at this firm as an intern.
But doesn't even know how to use a computer.
He helps this girl to manage all her problems in quite  traditional ways.
And...thats your story....
60/100 for the story

Overall

A nice emotional movie which touches your heart leaving tears of joy at the end.

Verdict

My rating is 3/5.
