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.
