Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara Movie Review – India’s First Road Trip Movie Rocks

Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara Movie is a refreshing film in terms of treatment and visual grandeur. As India’s first road-trip movie, ZNMD has its heart in place and manages to make us smile and move in equal measure. Subtlety is a trait that is not exemplified properly in our films, only a few films manage to pass that muster. This year, there have been some successful movies, but most of them have been pedestrian in content and treatment. ZNMD,a movie about male bonding, fighting out innermost fears and dealing with our innermost fears, is a refreshing take on various aspects of a subject that has already been seen before.

Story of Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara:

Kabir (Abhay Deol) who has been engaged to Natasha (Kalki Koechlin) decides to invite his school friends for an extended road-trip to Spain. Though the three meet, one can sense that all is not well between Arjun (Hrithik Roshan) and Imraan (Farhan Akhtar). As the three haul up for a road-trip, they indulge in friendly banter and find out more about each other; and their fears. Arjun who has a phobia for deep sea-diving gets friendly with Laila (Katrina Kaif) and they begin to develop feelings for each other. Imran has a phobia of heights and he is eventually able to overcome It. Kabir is not really 100 percent happy about his marriage, his to-be-wife is increasingly possessive and does not give him space that worries him. Through this movie, one is able to take a look into oneself and draw parallels with the characters of Imran, Arjun, Kabir and Laila.

What works for Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara:

The characterizations are real-like; there is nothing filmy or over-the-top. The cheerful conversation and friendly jibes are as realistic as possible minus the ovedose of abuse that we are prone to see these days. Europe never looked so beautiful in a Hindi film, Spain looks incredibly gorgeous. The director Zoya Akhtar shows that there is no need to delve into a character’s background and certain references are enough to make the audience understand the trappings of a character. The story of the film may not exactly be different, we have seen coming of age and buddy movies before but the freshness that is injected in this one, surely hits you like a whiff of fresh air.

What does not work for Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara:

One feels that there could have been more interesting lines and dialogues in the film in addition to everyday lingo used. The first half is a little slower than the second half

Best scenes in Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara:

  • The confrontation between Naseeruddin Shah and Farhan Akhtar.
  • The romantic scenes between Katrina Kaif and Hrithik Roshan (wonderful chemistry)
  • The paragliding scenes
  • The wonderfully choreographed “Ek Junoon” song.

Performances:

The performances of everyone in the cast has been appreciable While Abhay Deol is understated, Farhan Akthar gets to show his confident, effervescent side. As a character, Farhan gets to emote a range of emotions. Hrithik seems to have a permanent scowl in the beginning but he is quite effective in the second half of the film. Katrina Kaif is likeable; Kalki gets a short but impactful role.

Conclusion: Zidagi Na Milegi Dobara is indeed a fantastic watch devoid of errors. Go for it!

Ratings: ***1/2
