Dear Zindagi

Dear Zindagi

Starring Alia Bhatt, Shahrukh Khan, Kunal Kapoor, Ali Zafar and Angad Bedi, Dear Zindagi is Gauri Shinde’s second directorial venture after the Sridevi starrer – English Vinglish. Her first flick had an excellent story and some fantastic acting by Sridevi. It was a movie that had soul and appealed strongly to the heart. Does this one work the same way?

The story goes like this –

She seems like a determined and career oriented woman who is doing all it takes to succeed starting from ads and short films. But as life goes on, she meets a lot of different men like Angad Bedi, Kunal Kapoor, Ali Zafar and Aditya Roy Kapur each of whom make a mark in her life in a different way. 

A chance encounter with Dr Jehangir Khan (Shahrukh Khan) turns her life upside down. She starts seeing life from a different lens. The rest of the story deals with what all she does to get her meandering life back on track.

Movie Review – No One Killed Jessica

Less than a year has passed since his punishment has been converted into life imprisonment despite Ram Jethmalani’s (a lawyer who fights only for the big and corrupt) vehement protests. Links of an interview of his with Karan Thapar in Devil’s Advocate and Sagharika Ghose in CNN IBN are given here for the benefit of those who don’t know much about the case.

The movie brings back to life Jessica Lall (Myra) and Sabrina Lall’s (Vidya Balan) simple story which was one day stopped in its tracks when Jessica was shot dead in cold blood by Manish Bharadwaj (Mohd Zeeshan Ayub) in party by Bubbles Sabharwal (Mallika Sehgal). This happened despite the presence of Vikram Jai Singh (Niel Bhoopalam) and 300 other guests. As the guests turn hostile one after another, Sabrina loses her mom as well as her hope.

The rest of the movie deals with the way Sabrina gets justice.
