Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara


Zoya Akhtar has opened a new chapter of dosti with ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’. The film tells one to enjoy life to the fullest, don’t set any limit, take unlimited risks and enjoy the success. Generally, films in the past were made about simple theory of colleges, canteen fun, friends, friendship, love and jokes but ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’ is a totally different from the usual track, and it is executed in an interesting manner. Not a single moment of the movie is boring. It is joyous ride with three guys, enjoying their bachelorhood.

The minute incidents that happened in day to day life among friends have been given an interesting twist. The film is like a gentle blow. The plot is well executed and the bonding of male figures is shown convincingly. There is no dull point in the movie and the story keeps you engrossed.

The story encircles around three friends, Abhay Deol, Farhan Akhtar and Hrithik Roshan and speaks in length about their work-life, their family and their love life. The film actually starts from the day when the trio headed to Spain for a trip. It was not just a trip but a lesson for them. From this trip, they have gained various experiences which changed their perception towards life.

Kabir’s (Abhay Deol) family runs a construction company. Imran (Farhan Aktar) is a copywriter and also writes poems in spare time. Then there is Arjun (Hrithik Roshan), a stockbroker who lives in London. He is in a disturb state of mind due to his trouble commitment. The guys meet Laila (Katrina Kaif ) who is half Indian and half British on a beach in Costa Brava. She taught them deep sea diving. Her lively nature impressed Arjun so much that he gradually falls for her.  

Their trip to Spain was planned impromptus one day when Abhay has been engaged to interior designer Kalki Koechlin, a family friend.   

Lots of manly funs are shown in the movie, loitering on the beech bare chest, drinking around, raising toasts, motivating each other to challenge their fears, night-outs, involved in mockery.

The film has many touchy sequences but what touched my heart when the three boys are sitting together on their last day, drinking and singing the Doordarshan theme song.

Screenplay by Reema Kagti and direction by Zoya Akhtar was mind-blowing. When you watch the film, it will take you to a different world. It has a rare taste which hardly found in movies. Humor is out of the world, emotions is at high pitched, friendship is wordless, love in indefinable.

Speaking about performances, all the three guys are at their best. Their friendship is well lifted and they too have done justice to their roles. Hrithik Roshan gets into the soul of the character of Arjun and enacted his part flawlessly. Abhay Deol as a rich guy is highly commendable. He has made his mark in mainstream cinema. Farhan Akhtar was like never before. He has done serious role as well as funny role very convincingly. Katrina Kaif was a treat to watch. She acted beautifully and also looked pretty.  Kalki was impressive.

In the nutshell, ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’ is a fun filled ride. The film will bring good return to the box office. The metro guys will definitely love the movie. Good offering from Zoya Akhtar. Recommended.
