Dear Zindagi - Preview

wogma rating: Watch when on TV (?)
quick review:

Such a shame that a warm, cushy ambiance with interesting characters don't blend together to make an engaging film.

The charm is inescapable, surely. Despite Shah Rukh Khan's character being played by Shah Rukh Khan. But the question is, when does charm become too much? Is it possible to watch 2+ hours of it? We could've blamed Alia Bhatt's cuteness for the OD, but not after Highway and Udta Punjab, right?

I am all for romance and the “aawwww” that comes with the honemoon period and the “aawww shucks” that goes with the heartbreak thereafter. But, this one sounds too upbeat even when Alia Bhatt's character asks, “Why are romantic relationships so irritating?”

The brightest lining around this skepticism is that these are exactly the thoughts I had when I first saw English Vinglish's teaser. So, fingers crossed
