Overall Review:
Gauri Shinde took Bollywood by storm in 2012 with her first directorial venture English Vinglish and in current year she is back with a fresh perspective on life with her second film #DearZindagi. Film stars: Alia Bhat and Shahrukh Khan with other supporting actors: Kunar Kapoor and Ali Zafar. The plot of the film is absorbing which will take the viewers in a state of puzzle with lot of unanswered questions. #DearZindagi will take us through the simple moments of life, the life that most of us miss out due to our busy schedule and commitments. It is not the typical Bollywood romantic film where a man romances a woman, but a beautiful take on various human relationships. Film is brilliantly directed where you will not want it to end until the very end where it feels a little stretched. #DearZindagi is mainly targeted for young and the energetic audience who could get easily connected with the it. There could be no better option than Alia Bhatt for this movie and she she is impeccable. Shahrukh Khan’s role in #DearZindagi is more like an extended cameo and a narrator.The background score is exquisite. #DearZindagi is a slice-of-life film that deals with every kind of relationship that you might have.

Performance & Technical Review:
Alia Bhat is best choice for the role. Shahrukh Khan’s role is more like an extended cameo and a narrator. He had conveyed a lot of words of wisdom during the time play. He is quite careful with his life and knows to handle the truly tense situations. Both Shahrukh and Alia shares amazing chemistry on screen. Ali Zafar is playing the role of a good-looking, charming musician-singer. Kunal Kapoor is good in supporting role. The background score and music by Amit Trivedi is exquisite. Gauri Shinde is outstanding in her work. She had concentrated about even the minor details to make it happening.

PDF Verdict: #DearZindagi is joyride that celebrates imperfection in the most beautiful way. It’s a Wonderful Letter to Life that simply says: IF YOU WANT TO SOAR IN LIFE, YOU MUST FIRST LEARN TO F.L.Y (FIRST LOVE YOURSELF). A MUST WATCH.
