Alia as an inspiring filmmaker and her relationships with four different men, and how these influence her life, and the film she is working on. Alia's love interest(s) will be played not by Shah Rukh, but by Aditya Roy Kapur, Ali Zafar, Angad Nedi and Kunal Kapoor. Shah Rukh Khan portrays a life coach who Alia approaches for help.
Alia is the star around whom the story revolves. She has already shot for a song called 'Love you Zindagi", of which Shah Rukh isn't a part. If you are looking for a heartwarming, sensitive film about troubled twenty-somethings, then make a date with Dear Zindagi. Shah Rukh Khan's style of acting, body language, mannerisms and character will impress all his fans. Shah Rukh as an actor is back after doing lots of commercial mainstream movies. The way he portrays his emotions and conveys the hard hitting feelings is just 'wow' ! Alia Bhatt too has matured as an actress. Maybe, after Kapoor and Sons, she has got the right channel to expose her talent as an actress.
Ted Chilies Entertainment has made the distribution and production values on a large scale. The cinematography work made by Laxman Utekar has done an extraordinary work. The editing part was also done aptly and made with perfection. A grouse is that Bhatt’s relatives come across as stock characters that intrusive aunt or uncle who’s always pestering the single women to marry quickly could have been eliminated.
Dear Zindagi is something that a doctor might prescribe if they want you to have a good time and it is not a bitter pill. hasn’t had a real relationship with a man in a long time and her ties with her parents are strained. Gauri has proved that if anyone can present an unusual pair like Shah Rukh Khan and Alia Bhatt to the best advantage. A good entertainer where Alia and Shah Rukh Khan's acting deserves a big round of applause.
