Dil Bechara Trailer Review: Sushant’s Swan Song Brings Tears To The Eyes!

It is really  impossible  to be objective  about  Dil BecharaSushant Singh Rajput’s  farewell release,  the  final  curtain, before the parting. The  very nature of  the  release , the posthumous  goodbye, makes  it  difficult to keep  one’s eyes steady  on the  screen as  Sushant tries to cheer  up newcomer Sanjana Sanghi who is…well, dying.

Sanghi is cute. But I am afraid this  is Sushant Singh Rajput’s show all the way.

If you’ve  read or seen  the schmaltzy  The Fault  In Our Stars, you would know this is  a film about two cancer-stricken  youngsters and their  shared zest for love and  life. While I saw  some of  the  romantic  sequences between the couple to be straight lifts  from the original,  much of the material seems  a lot more happy and hopeful than the original.Which, given the  times  we are  going through, is a welcome departure from the original.

Also, the trailer  of Dil Bechara makes no mention  of  Sushant Singh Rajput’s character  being terminally  ill. So either they  decided to hide the fact in the trailer or they’ve changed the original film radically.  Either way the trailer is  heartwarming , and not necessarily for what we see  but for what we feel.

Sushant Singh Rajput plays such a  positive  character brimming with  joie de  vivre. It’s  difficult to  believe this lively actor with such an incurable  zest for  life is no more. Dil Bechara is  already a grand success  even before its premiere at the end  of the month.  Sadly debutant director Mukesh Chabra won’t be able to  celebrate this success.

PS Didn’t see Saif Ali Khan anywhere  in the trailer. Maybe he’s the  bandh mutthi. Heh heh.
