Critic Reviews for Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara
This is defiantly old-fashioned, high-value entertainment with a glamorous, talented cast. You used to see this sort of thing all the time from Hollywood.
A smart, relaxed, and understated character-driven seriocomic entertainment whose poignance sneaks up on you.
Audience Reviews for Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara
It was quite apparent from the promo what I was supposed to expect from the movie: Yet another friendship flick. But as I sat down to watch it, boy was I surprised!!! Yeah, "boy was I surprised" part in the previous sentence ain't true. As expected, ZNMD turned out to be a run-of-the-mill friendship saga which had a handful of favorable moments. Except for the beauty of Spain, the package hardly consists of anything worthwhile. The best thing about the movie is the casting of protagonists (Abhay, Hrithik, Farhan, Kaitrina, Kalki). They perform well enough in this film which has an apology for a script. Worst is the emotional quotient. Although it doesn't occupy much of the runtime, they're thrown in. Probably, they ran out of options for fillers. The sequences which were supposed to stir up emotions & moisten my eyes were terribly written. None of them were remotely touching, let alone moistening my eyes. There's a sort of mystery woven w.r.t. Imraan's father, but when it's unveiled, it lacked the punch I was expecting. And a small surprise thrown in towards the ending, while surprised me, didn't make the movie any more effective. I felt as if the writer had pulled off random events, some good, some bad, from here & there and assembled it into the script anyhow. What a messy journey!!! It's surely not the worst I've seen till date, but I don't find it any recommendable.More
Despite a familiar plot revolving around coming of age friends, and an over-eagerness to be hyper-cool, movie does have its moments with its warm humor and exotic locations.More
Although the characters aren't very well etched out, it does have its moments and the camaraderie shines through. Acting is sincere and cinematography, splendid, nothing over the top here. The real star of the show, though, is Spain, always breath taking, always splendid. The scenes where they just take in the moments with Farhan Akhtar reciting Javed Akhtar‚(TM)s poetry, is worth all the money you pay for your ticket.
Zoya Akhtar, after a super ‚Luck by chance‚? shows that she is a directorial talent to reckon with.
When we talk among friends, even little things cause big laughs. Its a very difficult thing to narrate that to somebody else and generate laughs. Zoya and Farhan Akhtar totally nails it. ZNMD is a lighthearted film which effortlessly delivers situational humour. Its a cool film worth watching.
PS: Its very difficult to eclipse Hrithik Roshan, but Farhan has done it.
