Under the direction of Gauri Shinde, the drama genre film, Dear Zindagi got screened yesterday on November 25th, 2016. Since the launch of its first trailer, the movie had rekindled enough curiosity among the viewers. Undoubtedly, the movie director has invested enough spunk in the project. Because, the movie concept is more of a soul centric, the director had to have a great deal of intellect to maintain the connection with audience.
If we talk about the story, Kaira (Alia Bhatt) is a zealous filmmaker, who is an unusual blend of talent and right amount of passion. She is positive towards her work and profession and is quite bohemian towards her relationships. The real change begins, when she meets Dr. Jehangir Khan (Shah Rukh Khan), who is a renowned therapist and helps her enter into her fearless self.
The story starts with showing kaira, completely mingled in her profession and doing great work with it. At that point she is enjoying a prospering fellowship with the producer of her current project, Raghuvendra (Kunal Kapoor). She appears with overflowing confidence, but deep inside is ridden with some undefined insecurities, because of which she hardly shares her true feelings and ends up hurting her boyfriends.
She meets Dr. Jehangir Khan at a most tangled point of her life, and decides to give a try to his therapy sessions for her ongoing insomnia problem.
The therapy sessions not only solved her temporal complications, but eventually she could untwist some of the really vague and ingrained question points in her life. Moving with that flair, the movie plays on the unconventional grounds and reveals some most common yet disregarded truths of life.
Dear Zindagi has tried to unwrap a heavy concept of emotional intelligence. Yes, the script seems witty and they have tried to keep things away from either black or white standpoints.
If you enjoy Alia on screen and is a diehard Shah Rukh fan, you would not want to miss the therapist-patient soul-feeding conversations. Even, if you are harsh critic of the Bollywood cinema, the story may snuggle in your thoughts well.
