Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara: Just what the Doctor ordered!

“There are two ways to live: you can live as if nothing is a miracle; you can live as if everything is a miracle.”-  Albert Einstein

Similarly, there are two ways to look at this movie. One way is to say “oh it’s slow”, “it could have been shorter” etc. and there is the other way, the one that involves riding along the beautiful and dreamlike pace the movie takes you on. It’s got soul no doubt, if you’d care enough to feel it, not just watch it.

After a flurry of toilet humor comedies/tragedies, ‘Zindagi….’ is a refreshing change. It’s inspirational, funny and deep yet frivolous. It’s THE movie for the 25 something’s who were bowled over by ‘Dil Chahta Hai’ 10 years ago. It’s amazing how the Akhtars’ have a knack for tapping into the heartbeat of the NOW generation (and I don’t mean the MTV and UTV Bindaas generation), I mean the one with some class still intact.

So, Imran (Farhan), Arjun (Hrithik) and Kabir (Abhay) are childhood friends on a bachelor trip. Kabir is about to tie the knot with Natasha (Kalki). And in the beautiful shot trip to Spain, many emotions are realized, some good, some bad and some great. Turns out to be the trip of a lifetime for these 3 completely different individuals. Katrina is the free willed diving instructor they meet on this adventure sports centric vacation.

The amazing fact here is that all 3 of them are in situations that each one of us has been in, at some point. From the workaholic who doesn’t know how to live life to the poet who is not serious about life, we have all been there and seen that. It’s identifiable because we all want to see the world, but then LIFE HAPPENS and we get bogged down by daily hassles. “Zindagi…” is the film that will make you go on that trip and do those things you always wanted to.

Musically, it’s subtle and not overpowering. Again, some may say it lacks fire, but there are strange powers in subtlety. Performance wise, Farhan looks in great form, displaying immense talent and Abhay is by far the most natural actor the industry has seen. He carries the film along without making us realize that he did. Hrithik as usual is sincere and likable and so is Katrina.

Verdict: “Zindagi…” is one of those films …. You either get it or you don’t. It either touches a chord with you or it bores you to death. For those who do get it, it will, in most parts be breathtaking, just like Imran’s (Farhan) poetry that punctuates the film.
