Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara - Preview

wogma rating: Pride of your DVD shelf (?)
quick review:

Life is one long vacation, if you can dare yourself to think of it that way. We are a generation that can afford to live life moment-by-moment. So, why aren't we. Go watch the film, before all the people who've loved it get you so excited about it that you are left disappointed.

It's raining "guy" films, Pyaar Ka Punchnama, Delhi Belly, and now Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. Given the track record of the earlier two and the promos of the latest addition, there is a lot to look forward to.

Cinematography that promise to justice to the exotic locations. Crazy adventure sports. One long bachelor party. What's there not to like. Also, this promises to be much cleaner than the other two films on this list of bachelor fun.

But wait, there is something and some more for the girls too. A chiseled Greek god statue disguised as Hrithik Roshan, a good actor in Abhay Deol who has picked some of the most interesting scripts and just cho-chweet-how-can-you-not-like-him Farhan Akhtar.

It is also interesting that the promo has already set up the characters and their situation. There seems to be no conflict to pull us to the theaters, only the fun and "cool" factors. The dialogues, however, are pretty disappointing already - both in terms of the actual lines and the off-timing in their delivery. Hopefully, it is just a case of bad promo editing and they will work just fine in the film.

I have faith in both the writers, Reema Kagti and Zoya Akhtar. Same cannot be said though about Farhan Akhtar's dialogue writing, though. My fingers are crossed that if the dialogue is as lame as it looks, hopefully, it won't take away too much from the story.

Similarly, the choice of the lead ladies could also go either way. I somehow wouldn't have imagined either Katrina Kaif or Kalki Koechlin in a film by Zoya Akhtar. Nice to see a break from preconceived notions and the underlying stereotypes.

Meanwhile, from what I hear and read, the music is what one would expect from Shankar, Ehsaan and Loy. Here's more -
milliblog - " Nuanced, mature and engaging soundtrack from the trio!"

music aloud - "7.25/10"

Bollyspice - "4/5"

Bollywood Hungama - "3.5/5"

HappySing - "ZNMD is something to celebrate"

Planet Radiocity - "3.5/5"
