“Perhaps, the difference between what is miserable, and that which is spectacular, lies in the leap of faith”. – Sushant Singh Rajput 

Blank screen, that smile and this quote. The movie starts with a heavy heart. 

‘Dil Bechara’ based on John Green’s best-selling novel ‘The fault in our stars’ is a love story between two people who have lost all hopes from their lives. The story of love – the story of connection and how death is not the end, ironic isn’t it! We can technically see that the story SSR wanted us to see, ALWAYS. 

Dil Bechara is narrated in the backdrop of Jamshedpur where Kizzie Basu (Sanjana Sanghi) is a cancer patient and fights for her life every day. Being brought up in a typical Bengali family under an overprotective mother, she somehow wants to be just a normal girl. Her life takes a turn when one fine day she meets Manny aka Emmanuel Rajkumar Junior (Sushant Singh Rajput) – a jolly, fun loving- irritating guy whom she cannot stand.  As the story moves ahead, they both find ‘their home’ in each other. From doing silly things together to fulfilling Kizzie’s that one dream, we can’t help but drool over their love story. But lastly, destiny plays its role and surely the audience will be left in tears relating with the current scenario.  

An epic love story portrayed elegantly: 

Mukesh Chhabra, who made his directorial debut with this movie surely did justice to the script and portrayed the story beautifully. Shot in elegant locations, every prop made us feel the essence of that scene. Though there are few loopholes, the emotional strains of the movie make it go un-noticed. AR Rahman’s music with Amitabh Bhattacharya’s lyrics surely will make us feel the emotions behind each line. From the title track to that four line of ‘Mein tumhara’ song, we will keep on humming it.

Sushant-Sanjana weave magic on screen! 

Now, coming to the acting part, Sanjana Sanghi just like a fresh breeze of the morning portrayed Kizie Basu elegantly. As a newcomer, in some places she even overshadowed Sushant. Saswat Chatterjee and Swastika Mukherjee who played Mr. and Mrs. Basu on screen just nailed their roles. Saif Ali Khan made his unexpected cameo as Abhimanyu Veer and Sahil Vaid was there for the comic timing. And last but not the least, Sushant, yet again created magic on screen by getting into the skin of the character, for the last time. From ‘Kai Po Che’ to ‘Dil Bechara’ the audience will drool over his eyes, smile, priceless moments and we can sense his powerful presence in every scene and that’s the true trait of a brilliant actor. This movie is definitely worth the watch, not for anyone but Sushant! 

Just one more thing, just the way Manny’s friends were watching his last made movie on screen the same way we did, as if they all are representing us that’s the climax that’s going to break us. Lastly, the word ‘Seri’ got its new definition and we will remain in our hearts. 

We will miss you Sushant Singh Rajput forever! Seri!
