The year 2020 has not been so good till now but one of the bitter sweet movie made many of the hearts ache as the story proceeded, Sushant Singh Rajput and Sanjana Sanghi starrer Dil Bechara is streaming on Disney Plus Hotstar. The movie has shown the capabilities of the late actor Sushant Singh Rajput who played the protagonist in the movie named Manny, but unfortunately we don’t have the actor to celebrate with. While watching the movie one couldn’t help appreciating Sushant's acting. A huge credit goes to Mukesh Chhabra for such a great casting as his debut, where each and every character fits perfectly in their roles.
The story mainly focuses on the relationship that blossoms between Manny and Kizie, both of them suffering from terminal illness, Kizie was going through Thyroid cancer and Manny had Osteosarcoma. Still how love between them was abundant and the actors really showcased their flawless acting.
It shows how crazy a person can become to fulfill the wish of his/her love, the dialogue is real highlight in this movie has to be appreciated for such a natural and light realistic dialogues.
The chemistry between Manny and Kizie really brought tears in eyes, the story is an adaptation from a novel 'The Fault in our stars' by John Green in 2012 after which A Hollywood movie was made by the same name. In the movie Dil Bechara, Kizie is shown as a huge fan of Abhimanyu Veer played by Saif Ali Khan who made a song 'Mai Tumhara' which was incomplete for some reason, which Kizie worries about. The cameo of Saif was icing on the cake and made the movie even beautiful. The movie falls in the category where the End is not happy and will make you cry, especially the last 30 minutes of the movie was really well presented, the pauses, the dialogue delivery and the end that we all saw coming and couldn’t stop even if we wanted.
I really wanted the movie to last bit more so I could enjoy the realistic and heartbreaking performance of Shushant Singh Rajput and this movie is by far the most heartwarming film. Imdb gave 9.8 ratings out of 10. My takeaway from the movie is to be happy of what we have and to look forward and to have faith in myself in the hardest time in my life and face it.
