Movie Review: Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara

'Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara' is a story of three friends. 'Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara' has done very good promotion for Spain Tourism.

Kabir (Abhay Deol) is getting married and he is planning to celebrate his long bachelor party in Spain with his two friends Imraan (Farhaan Akhtar) and Arjun (Hrithik Roshan). All of them are on a road trip in Spain where they go different spots and meet different people. How this trip changes there thinking and changes the way they take their life, we will see in Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara.

The Cast:

If I ask any hero in Bollywood who looks Truly International then answer is Hrithik Roshan. After a truly international look and feel films like 'Kites' and 'Guzaarish' he is back with 'Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara'. His last movie 'Guzaarish' could not gather audiences at Box Office but it has earned him lots of awards for his mind blowing performance. Keeping up the same pace he is back as a Arjun, with this truly International movie 'Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara'. His character portrays a money minded Stock Broker whose only focus is money. He does well as usual but there aren’t any shades to his character.

Farhaan Akhtar Plays the role of Imraan in the movie and among all of the three, he shares best character, because his dialogues are funniest among all. And with Hrithik and Abhay he shares very good chemistry. But his role is has too many shades and tries too hard. Though competent actor that he is Farhaan does well, his voice over reciting poetry too is very well used.

Abhay Deol has already proved himself as a “King of Small Budget” films, but when it comes to Big Budget movies he hasn’t got really well due, like in his last film Aisha. In 'Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara' he has not much scope to do because main characters are not very well edged out. And talented actor like Abhay is simply wasted in the movie. But still his sincerity stands out in the movie.

Katrina Kaif’s role is very short in 'Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara' and she doesn’t have much to do. As always she looks very beautiful but because of his short role, she doesn’t have platform to showcase her talent. I would have loved to see more of this lovely actress and I feel like Katrina is not used effectively enough. Even his screen case with Hrithik lacks the sizzle.

Kalki is playing Abhay’s rich fiancé. She plays nagging in love girl who begins to suffocate Abhay. She did very good job but she doesn’t have much scope of performance. However, her role is not enough in a Male dominated film.

The Music
Like every time, Tridev Maestro Shankar, Ehsaan and Loy has created magical music. Music is young, peppy and fresh and the songs go well with the movie. 'Senorita' and 'Ek Junoon' are superhit songs of the movie. Like movie, songs are also beautifully shot. My personal favourtite is slow and sweet song, “Khwaabon ke parindey”. Overall music is very good.

Zindagi na milegi dobara, is Zoya akhtar’s second movie after Luck by chance. She has shotted beautifully and even chunky roles for his male actors. She tried to created 'Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara' like a Hollywood movie. But apart from Exotic location, film’s slow pace is dragging the whole movie experience. Scenes are too long and length of the film is too much.

But director has managed to capture the beauty of Spain very well. There are some superb moments from the stars as well. But the movie appears to lack substance due to its length.

Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, is this year’s most awaited movie. But unfortunately it falls below expectations. The films basic premise, of three youngsters and a roadtrip to indulge in adventurous sports and face their fears is very good. But the execution of the story, lacks the pulsating throbe needed for a Testosterone heavy film. Performances are competent but Plot is slow. Movie is very much lengthy. At least 25 minutes could be eructed, because in some scenes it gets slow and boring. Spain tourism would be delighted for this superb promotion for their country. Still for a first of its kind attempt of an exotic and adventurous cinema I vote for below ratings for Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara.

Ratings: 3 (Good) / 5 (BollyBoozoomBaa)
