Plot

This Friday, it’s all about MAGIC! Directed by Gauri Shinde, Dear Zindagi features Alia Bhatt (Kiara) and Shahrukh Khan (Jehangir) in the lead roles. Dear Zindagi is that one fresh film which stands out of all in Bollywood. Alia Bhatt plays the main protagonist in the movie and shows how great and talented as an actor she is. Alia’s extraordinary performance just melts our hearts. Dear Zindagi is a life time experience and Gauri Shinde’s story telling works yet again! Each and every actor in the film nail their respective roles! Shahrukh Khan undoubtedly is the soul of the movie until the very end.

The script of the movie is simple and has a very meaningful subject. Dear Zindagi is the kind of movie which offers an important message that happiness is all about finding comfort in life's imperfections. The movie is all about Alia Bhatt and she has done justice to her role. The first half of the movie is bit outstretched but the funny and clever one-liners keep you gripped. Alia in the movie romances Kunal, Angad and Ali and is shattered after her broken relationships. Alia Bhatt is shown as a talented cinematographer who is jumbled-up in her past relationships and seeks help from SRK who is a therapist (Dimaag Ka Doctor). Alia understands the magic of life only when meets SRK (Jehangir or Jug) and both of them share an extremely effortless relationship. The movie has a soul-searching theme and Shahrukh Khan does justice to it.

 

Direction

 

This Gauri Shinde’s directorial celebrates the imperfections of our lives in a most beautiful way. Shahrukh has been seen in a new avatar after so many years and he is actually the soul of the movie till the end. Dear Zindagi is the most engaging film we’ve seen in the past few months. This sensitive and heart whelming movie will make you laugh, cry and feel every moment of it beautifully. The movie belongs to Alia Bhatt on the whole; she is the one who takes our heart away with her amazing performance and charm. Shahrukh Khan on the other hand steps out of his comfort zone and delivers a serious, mature, and a riveting performance.

Gauri Shinde is such an amazing director and her direction and storytelling technique does wonders. Gauri Shinde, just take a bow for this simplistic charm of film making. The screenplay, the cinematography is simply superb and the entire movie has been shot nicely in the beautiful locales of Goa.

Bollypedia Ratings - 3/ 5 Stars

  • Oscars, or the Academy Awards 2017 have just ended, and it was one hell of an event. After the Oscars award night, we thought of taking a satirical take on the academy awards by presenting the BAS KAR awards to the worst performances or appearances in Hindi cinema. The winners have been selected keeping in mind the ‘Tumse Naa Ho Payega’ tag line. LOL! Take a look at the winners…
  • Bollywood is known for its thoughtful stories and plots. Over the years, we have seen many women-centric roles, which have impacted our society in a large way. And, we are expecting the same in the year 2017, because it’s going to be a year full of superb movies, especially emphasizing on the womanhood. Here’s presenting to you all those spectacular Bollywood 2017 movies which will celebrate the very essence of a woman.
  • When we recall the hottest buzzword of the century “Feminism”, many people confuse it with “Male Bashing” which is absolutely rubbish. It is more to do with a genuine status quo and not looking low at the men. By default, India is a misogynist country and most of the men here do not respect the womanhood because yes, the country has a patriarchal set up which really needs to be set right. Hence, the influential women have to come-up and voice for all the women out there to drill some sense into the Indian system. Right from Neena Gupta to Kalki Koechlin and Priyanka Chopra, every Bollywood actress has opined for the female emancipation which has to be heard by all.
  • What if some of the Bollywood celebs were put into the various characters from the schools! Well, go through our hilarious take on them and enjoy! (P.S. - it is strictly funny, nothing personal!)
  • Bollywood is known for its drama and romance; and the directors always very creatively choose their on-screen couples! So, we thought, this Valentine’s Day let’s grace the Director’s chair and pair-up some Bollywood jodis who we’d want to see together in real life! Of course, many actors have worked together in n-number of films and after seeing them on and off the screen, we predicted some love affairs which should happen for real.
  • 2016 was a bundle-full of good movies and we enjoyed them a lot. So, here’s a good news for all the Bollywood fans, 2017 is said to hit the bar in an amazing way because there are many movies lined-up for you. Movies like SRK’s Raees, Salman’s Tubelight and Hrithik’s Kaabil are set to release in 2017. Let’s take a quick look at all those movies which are slated in 2017.
