Sushant Singh Rajput’s last film Dil Bechara released today on Disney Plus Hotstar. After almost one and a half months after his demise, when you watch this film, you’re ought to get emotional.
The story of the film revolves around Manny (Sushant Singh Rajput) and Kizzie (Sanjana Sanghi). Both are cancer patients and are fighting with death. The film is based on the book and film written by John Green, which are both titled “The Fault In Our Stars”.
Manny loses his leg in the film and still manages to stay lively and happy in life. On the other hand, Kizzie, who carried oxygen cylinder with her all the time, is sad with her boring life. When Kizzie meets Manny, he teaches her how to overcome sadness with all a beautiful thing called life. Thus, Kizzie’s life changes completely.
The chemistry between Sushant and Sanjana is cute and fun. Being a phenomenal actor that Sushant proved in his earlier films, he aced his performance in this one too. Every detail of his character makes you fall in love with him. His liveliness in the film will touch your heart and wet your eyes at the same time. After MS Dhoni and Chhicchore, Sushant left one more outstanding performances of his life with this film.
With the fact that Sushant is no more with us now, every dialogue that comes out of Sushant’s mouth makes you emotional. You go into dilemma with the fact that how a person who’s smiling all the time and teaching you to live your life to the fullest left us all with so many questions unanswered.
Sanjana Sanghi’s performance in the film is mediocre. Being her debut film as a lead, she doesn’t leave any mark on us with her character. Saif Ali Khan’s cameo is barely for a minute or two, but watching him was a treat to our eyes.
Sahil Vaid as JP and Manny bestfriend was perfect at his part. Saswata Chatterjee as Kizie’s father & Swastika Mukherjee as Kizie’s mother were adorable as parents.
Mukesh Chhabra made his directorial debut with Dil Bechara and failed miserably. Nothing out of the box was offered by him in the movie. Some shots including the one where Manny takes Kizzy for the first time could have been better but weren’t. Although, the production design was impressive.
AR Rahman‘s music in the film is a treat to our ears. Except for the song Mera Naam Kizzie, all other songs were a perfect fit in the film.
Please watch the film to remind yourself how phenomenal was Sushant as an actor.
Undoubtedly, I can say it loud that from Manav TV par aa raha hai to Manny Ro raha hai, this man lived both the worlds with style and grace. I wish we could see more of his successes.
Watch it for Sushant Singh Rajput and we can’t belittle this moment by rating this, a sacred emotional occasion.
