Story

Dear Zindagi is all about Kyra (Alia Bhatt) and her life style. She breaks up with Sid (Angad Bbedi) and then with Raghuvendra (Kunal Kapoor). Kyra dreams big and she thinks that they seem to be sinking because of her breakups and love life. That is when she happens to meet a renowned psychiartist Dr Jehangir Khan (Shah Rukh Khan). With Khan interacting with Kyra in various sessions, things start changing and the rest of Dear Zindagi is all about what happens next. Watch Dear Zindagi to know about the film.

The first half of Dear Zindagi rarely has something to express and it looks completely clitched. The screenplay has been hammered enough that it makes no difference. The entire first half has been wasted without revealing anything to the audience. Some of the episodes impress the audience but they make no impact on the whole. The visuals have been fresh and the interval episodes looked simple. On the whole the first half of Dear Zindagi is a disappointment.

The second half of Dear Zindagi has been decent however it tests the patience of the audience. Some of the episodes have been dragged without any need. Once again the songs looked decent and the cinematography is the major highlight of the film. With many unusual episodes, Dear Zindagi looks slammed on the whole and the second half has been better but it too falls short of the expectations.

Performance :

Alia Bhatt has been extremely stupendous in the role of Kyra and her energetic performance is the major highlight of the film. She performed the assigned role with utmost ease and her performance is the major relief for the audience. Shah Rukh Khan looks super cool in the new role and he kept the audience completely engaging. Kunal Kapoor, Angad Bedi and Ali Zafar have been decent.

The story of Dear Zindagi has nothing new to reveal. The screenplay and dialogues lacked interest. The music and the background score have been apt and the cinematography is the major highlight of the film. The production values looked lavish and they have been decent. Gauri Shinde fails to make a huge impact with her directorial abilities after an impressive film like English Vinglish.

Final Word

Dear Zindagi fails short of the expectations and the movie’s dragged narration, dipped plot makes the audience surprised.

    Rangoon Movie Review

    The first half of Rangoon starts with a bang and all the three leading actors thrive to perform to their best. Especially Shahid and Kangana have been outstanding. The movie has a predictable plot but it is the narration of the characters and their performances which lead the show. The entire first half has been decent and the songs have been extremely colorful. The performances by the lead actors make a strong impact across the audience.The second half of the film manages to stand convincing but it is the slow pace and dragged episodes that disturb the audience. The songs have been shot well and the backdrop of Second World War has been extremely convincing. The pre-climax episodes make the film interesting and intense. The climax has been decent and on the whole, Rangoon is quite convincing if one ignores some flaws.

    Raees Movie Review

    The first half of Raees has been extremely perfect and starts off explaining the character of Raees. Each and everything has been taken huge care. The film shifts from action to romance and then to politics without any flaws which will sure entertain the audience of all the classes. The interval episodes make the film quite interesting and the songs have been shot extremely well. On the whole the first half is a package of perfect commercial drama.The second half turns dull at parts and it dips down however the film picks up again at the much needed time.

Once again the songs have been extremely well shot and placed well. The climax looks dragged however the second half of Raees makes a perfect watch.
