Movie Review of Dear Zindagi
Alia Bhatt and Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Dear Zindagi, which was released on Friday, November 25, has received overwhelming reviews from critics. Directed by Gauri Shinde, Dear Zindagi has been making a tremendous buzz as it has a unique star cast combination of Shah Rukh and Alia. This is the first time the two actors will be sharing screen space. The movie has impressed critics and audience alike. They claim it to be a refreshing and light-hearted film with a positive message.
The storyline and Alia and Shah Rukh’s power-packed performances have wowed the viewers. With such massive response, the film will surely make movie-goers throng into the theatres despite the demonetisation drive. Dear Zindagi revolves around a budding cinematographer Kaira (played by Alia) who meets Jehangir Khan or Jug (played by Shah Rukh). Jug is a psychiatrist and helps a heartbroken Kaira gain a new perspective on love and life. Produced by Red Chillies Entertainment, Dharma Productions and Hope Productions, Dear Zindagi also stars Kunal Kapoor, Ali Zafar and Aditya Roy Kapur.
We bring you some critics’ verdict for the movie. See the comments below in the Dear Zindagi review round-up:
Manjusha Radhakrishnan of Gulf News said: “The tale of a twenty-something cinematographer, Kiara (Alia Bhatt), who’s undergoing a crippling quarter-life-crisis, is joyously entertaining. If you are looking for a heartwarming, sensitive film about troubled twenty-somethings, then make a date with Dear Zindagi. You won’t live to regret it.”
