The king of bollywood Shah Rukh Khan and cute Alia Bhatt show an irresistible spark but the film needed a plot to hinge the performance which was missing as per the movie critics.
There are too many dialogues in the movie which say very little. And definitely it takes away the real essence of the movie.The movie resides on to the shoulders of some very strong actors from B-Town namely Alia Bhatt, Shah Rukh Khan, Yashwasini Dayama, Ira Dubey, Kunal Kapoor, Ali Zafar and Angad Bedi which was a brownie point for the not-so-happening weak storyline of the film.
The film introduces Alia Bhatt as Kiara who is a working young lady. She is introduced on a set looking at the world through a Len, capturing beautiful pictures.
And soon we get to know from colleagues and her smile that she is good at what she does.
In this modern era, having a female independent professional women is also a big step taken by Bollywood. And we feel appreciative towards this significant step taken by B-Town.
And then within few minutes of movie starting, the director Gauri Shindhe manages to have us intrigued.
So far, we want to know more about Kiara, her aspirations, her desires and her dreams.
And then suddenly, we feel movie stops moving, it gets becalmed.
Next we get to know is that confident and self loving Kiara is just a sorry mess and underneath all that bluster lives a frightened little girl who constantly deals with her childhood trauma and abandonment issues.
Then she learns life lessons from Dr. Jahangir Khan played by aka SRK.
He helps her understand life and enjoy it.
‘Dear Zindagi’ comes off as a film which could have done better with less preciousness, and more plot.
All in all, Dear Zindagi is a one time watch entertainment with depth but not-so strong storyline.
Stay tuned in for more.
