Sushant Singh Rajput’s last film ‘Dil Bechara’ is available for streaming on Hotstar from today. It is an adoption of John Green’s novel ‘The Fault in Our Stars’. Here’s our review of the film.
Immanuel Rajkumar Junior aka Manny(Sushant Singh Rajput) meets Kizie Basu(Sanjana Sanghi), a gril with thyroid cancer and tries to woo her. The duo eventually develops feeling for each other as they enlighten each other’s lives. But a drastic development changes their lives forever. Related proceedings are narrated with a whole lot of emotions.
How about on-screen performances?
Sushant Singh Rajput leaves the viewers emotional with a stunning performance in his last film. He shoulders an intense role with utmost ease. He makes you laugh, cry, and feel intense pain. Sadly, this is the last time we get to see him in action and there are no second thoughts in saying that he is one true SUPERSTAR in Indian cinema.
Sanjana Sanghi is very impressive in the role of a girl with thyroid cancer. She emotes very well. She did particularly well in emotional episodes.
Sahil Vaid as protagonist’s friend does a good job. Saswata Chatterjee delivers a natural performance and carries his role with great command. Saif Ali Khan makes a brief cameo.
How about off-screen talents?
Mukesh Chhabra is making his directorial debut with this film and he gets the basics right. He succeeded in extracting the right emotions from the characters. But he should have come up with a more elaborated climax in order to sustain the emotion till the very end.
AR Rahman’s music adds an additional emotional layer to the film. It elevates the vibe of the proceedings. The background score towards the end of the film is splendid.
Sushant Singh Rajput’s performance
A couple of patchy sequences
‘Dil Bechara’ is an emotional tribute to Sushant Singh Rajput and there are a couple of occassions when we can relate his role to his off-screen personality. He excelled in his role and so did Sanjana. The journey of the lead pair is a rollercoaster of emotions. The climax feels a bit rushed and a couple of sequences seem incoherent.
Watch or not?
Do watch the film for its philosophical storry and even more so, to enjoy the performance of Sushant Singh Rajput for one last time.
We can enjoy his cheerfulness!
We can fee his pain!
We can connect to his emotion!
