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.
