The count is four now! Confused? Well, don’t be. We are talking about the teaser promos of Gauri Shinde’s upcoming Bollywood movie, Dear Zindagi. The filmmaker has adopted a unique way of introducing her film. Instead of a full theatrical trailer, a series of teasers are being released that keeps up the curiosity for the film. Four teasers are out and Kaira and Jehangir (Alia Bhatt and Shah Rukh Khan) have successfully managed to excite us. We are sure, the director who enamored us with her English Vinglish won’t fail to do the same this time as well.
Now, that we can’t wait any longer for Dear Zindagi to hit the theatres, here’s a quick cheat sheet for you before heading to the cinema near you to watch the film on 25th of November. Here you go.
1. Take 1: Life is a Game
The introductory promo leave us with a bright smile on your face. We get a glimpse of Alia’s and Shah Rukh’s characters and personalities in Take 1. Alia plays a Cinematographer and Shah Rukh Khan as a “Maverick” Therapist. Shah Rukh’s unusual way of treating his patients and Alia’s laughing and dancing on the roads makes you fall in love with these two characters. And not to forget the refreshing song, “Love You Zindagi” playing in the background.
2. Take 2: Always Recycle
This 1-minute- 15-second teaser takes you through the wonderful equation Alia and Shah Rukh shares in this upcoming Bollywood Drama movie. Their fun, light-hearted conversation (especially Alia’s terrible jokes) is bound to bring smiles to your faces again. Their chemistry is just amazing!
3. Take 3: Love. BreakUp. Repeat
In this promo, the heartbroken Kaira seeks Jugs (Jehangir) advice on romance. While take 1 and 2 capture the adorable chemistry between Kaira and Jugs, take 4 gives us glimpses of Kaira’s love life and her frustration with relationships. Kunal Kapoor and Angad Bedi also make small appearances with Alia in the promo.
4. Take 4: Set Free
“Express freely to set yourself free” – this is what Shah Rukh preaches Alia in this promo. Shah Rukh quotes Albert Einstein and says people who do the same thing every day and expect different results are insane. Kaira and Jehangir are now telling us the truth behind why it is so difficult to express ourselves after growing up. Take 4 is worth a watch.
After Shivaay and Ae Dil Hai Mushkil failed to impress the audiences at the box office, let’s hope Gauri Shinde’s Dear Zindagi give us something to cheer for this November.
