It’s no secret that Dil Bechara is a special film and watching it will always be more than just watching a movie. Seri? Seri! This film marks Sushant Singh Rajput‘s last film and it makes an already emotional film even more emotional.
Dil Bechara is an adaptation on John Green’s book The Fault In Our Stars, which has also been made into a Hollywood film with the same name. This film stars Immanuel Rajkumar Junior aka Manny (Sushant Singh Rajput), a happy-go-lucky boy who will charm the socks off anyone with his stupid smile and rhyming dialogues. It’s love at first sight for him when he meets Kizie (Sanjana Sanghi), a girl who is battling thyroid cancer. We soon come to know that Manny too battled cancer in the past and lost a leg to it. If anything, his experiences make him want to live life to the fullest. As time progresses, Manny is able to woo Kizie and finally, this raja gets his rani and fulfills her greatest desire, which is to meet her favorite musician in Paris.
It’s not fully sunk in!
Watching Sushant Singh Rajput play a jovial and charming character is heartbreakingly beautiful. This would have been another tremendous performance he could’ve added to his list of accomplishments. In one of his dialogues in the film he says, “Janam kab lena hai aur marna kab hai, hum decide nahi kar sakte. Par kaise jeena hai woh hum decide kar sakte hain.” SSR has left us way too soon but he certainly lived his life well and left us with a legacy of his masterpieces.
The debutant shines!
Dil Bechara marks Sanjana Sanghi‘s debut in a lead performance. She plays her introverted character very convincingly and her transition from a timid girl to someone who begins to live, smile, and appreciate life thanks to a certain Rajkumar, is very sweet. It’s certainly difficult to view this film from an unbiased point of view, simply because Dil Bechara is more than just a film, it’s an emotion.

Without even giving it a second thought, watch this beautiful movie. You will laugh, smile, and even shed a few tears. P.S. Keep a box of tissues close by. Also, in order to honor SSR, Disney+ Hotstar has made this film free for everyone to watch. So don’t miss it!
