Dil Bechara – An Honest Review

The first time I read ‘The Fault In Our Stars,’ my heart skipped a beat with each page turn. This was before the book became popular. I always enjoyed books and music before it the bestselling charts.

Hazel Grace and Augustus Waters are one of a kind. They were burdened by cancer and their loved one’s hidden emotions. Until they found each other, they were alone amidst the crowd. They were each-others safe havens.

Hazel Grace’s grenade dialogue scene was heart-breaking and

When the Hollywood movie came out starring Ansel Elgort and Shailene Woodley, I was slightly disappointed. Like every other book made into a movie, it lost its touch.

I felt the same way when I watched Dil Bechara. The Bollywood make was a lot different from the book. They changed the book to a song, the author to a musician, Amsterdam to Paris. More than any of that this movie was so different than the book itself. Instead of creating a new identity for itself, it was just a loose compilation of scenes.

I understand that the movie was made for the Indian youth to relate to, but in the heavily social world, we are more modern than before.

Kizie was introduced attending strangers’ funerals to share her pain realizing that she too might die soon and her loved ones would go through the same. That unexplained scene gave the movie an edge. It was a beautiful scene. She, herself didn’t realize the reason she was drawn to funerals.

Manny’s funeral scene was heartbreaking and my friend described her want to crawl into the screen and give Kizie and Manny a tight hug each.

The songs weren’t that great, commercial success wise. But A. R. Rahman’s composition was peaceful and I loved them.

However, the new comer Sanjana Sanghi, playing Kizie did wonderful on her part. She was perfect when she needed to be stiff, stubborn, emotional and in love. She has an amazing career ahead of us and will be worthy of all the opportunities to hone her skills.

Sushant Singh Rajput, as Manny was as gracious as ever. He had his charming smile and adorable personality throughout.

I would have loved if both the great actors were playing their parts in a different plot. Stirring clear of John Greens book.

The movie had 95 million views in the first 24 hours. It was a tribute to Sushant Singh Rajput. Many shed tears, not with the characters but for the actor himself.

The slideshow tribute for Sushant in the end was comforting and warm. It was sweet and made a million people shed tears for him and his premature death. We loved Sushant and he will always have a special place in our hearts forever.

In the weeks after his death, many speculations were made, cases filed, trending hashtags. But it felt good to switch off from social media and watch his last movie. Hotstar and Disney+ did a great job letting viewers stream the movie for free.

You can watch the movie on Hotstar and Disney+.

You can stream all songs of the movie on YouTube and on any other music app.
