Writer Director Gauri Shinde's #DearZindagi is a delightful take on getting to terms with your life with a little help 4m friends of course. Considering Alia's character is a cinematographer turned filmmaker I'd b keen to find out how much #DearZindagi is Gauri's own life story.. #DearZindagi is non compromising,breaks conventions,abundant usage of English n scoffs at what's regularly acceptable,follows its own pace Sum films make u part of their paradigm n start owning u.Everyone may not identify with it but then #DearZindagi never pretends 2 b 4 every1 The layered writing of #DearZindagi gets u emotional,makes u romantic,makes u laugh.. Dialogues r amazing.. So what if they r in English!! Alia Bhatt is such a gifted artiste.She's pretty n v young but there's a volcano of talent that explodes wid herculean ambition #DearZindagi Alia's idiosyncrasies,the temper tantrums,the beautiful romanticism n thn d outburst b4 parents.What a bundle of brilliance #DearZindagi Shah Rukh Khan,d superstar takes a backseat n SRK d incredible theatre actor takes over.Theraav,quirky humor,poise,Grace. Uff! #DearZindagi Age is not a barrier for people to fall in love.. People fall in love with beautiful attractive human beings not their age #DearZindagi Ali Zafar is a delight in a cameo.. He sings n romances n kisses.. There's an amazing vitality that he brings to the table #DearZindagi Kunal Kapoor is a damn good looker n a v fine n underutilised actor.. #DearZindagi will get him noticed in a big way... The actress who plays Alia's friend Jackie is a riot.. She brings in some really entertaining moments in the film #DearZindagi Amit Trivedi's music aids n caresses the narrative forward.. Wonderful songs, nice lyrics n u take back the music home #DearZindagi Goa has been presented beautifully n u become a part of the laid back Magnificence... The night sea shots r too inviting #DearZindagi The pace of the film is slow but the overall impact gives you a high that a great movie does.. Caters 2 a select class audience #DearZindagi If grt performances,superb writing,enriching music n a wonderfully directed film is wat u r in search of,Don't miss #DearZindagi It stays!

Can relate to so many of Kaira's struggles & emotions @aliaa08 @iamsrk @iamsrk Seriously, there needs to be a sequel or spinoff with Jug's character. You just want to know more about him ❤️ #DearZindagi @gauris @iamsrk Seriously, I need a Jug in my life #DearZindagi @iamsrk Some of the things you said were profound.
