My Gut Feel and
We are supposed to enjoy the good
stuff now, while we can, with the people we love. Life has a funny way of
teaching us that lesson over and over again - Sheena Easton.
Above seems to be the case if we evaluate the story line of Dear Zindagi where Alia Bhatt seems to be in a mess and then met Shahrukh Khan who changes her perspective of living life right way.
The USP of this film is its director itself, Gauri Shinde who presents a story is a very simplistic way which audience
do able to relate to in sweat way. Alia
bhatt is looking superb , supporting cast seems appropriate and even Shahrukh has been projected understated, away from his shadow of typical larger
than life character is generally plays. I liked him in Swadesh and Chakde where he played quite realistic characters.
Chances of this movie going wrong are minimal so one can expect a
good movie which would be appreciated by multiplex audience for sure.
I would give this
movie 3.5 star out of 5 stars, two days before the release.
