What happens on their trip? Do they get success in overcoming their fears? These are some questions which are answered in the rest of the film.

Acting

Hrithik Roshan is excellent in his role. His physique as well as his performance is good. He has maintained his weight and abs. He once again has proved through his acting skills that he is not only a good dancer but also a good actor.

Farhan Akhtar has improved in his acting skills and you will find him better than his earlier films such as ‘Karthik Calling Karthik’. He has tried to present himself in a bit comical way in which he has succeeded to great extent. His dialogue delivery is good and worth mentioning here. Abhay Deol is a natural actor. Though he doesn’t look as smart as Hrithik Roshan he appears to be innocent which people would like. He too has justified his role.

As usual Kartina Kaif looks beautiful and glamorous in this film. Her acting skills seem to be improved in this film.

Kalki’s acting is neither good nor bad; its average!

Cinematography

The DOP Carlos Catalan has taken some shots brilliantly which are admirable and which provide great look of the film and scenario.

Choreography

There are three choreographers in this film. Bosco-Caesar duo and Vaibhavi Merchant, who have choreographed their songs very nicely.

Lyrics

Javed Akhtar has written the songs of this film which are good, meaningful and up to date.

Music

Though the songs written by Javed Akhtar are good, they are not well composed which you can play repeatedly. Of course you would like to listen to the music of this film for a few times, but not again and again because its not so melodious and appealing despite the music composed by great music directors Shankar, Ehsaan and Loy.

Script

The script is written by Zoya Akhtar as well as by Reema Kagti. There are some loopholes in the script and becomes weak sometimes and you don’t feel the need of some scenes; yet overall script is good and contains inspirational messages. Zoya Kahtar being the daughter of a great film writer Javed Akhtar has proved that she has inherited some writing skills from her father.

Direction

Zoya Akhtar who has directed this film who is also the sister of Farhan Akhtar who has earlier directed may films of thriller and adventurous genre such as ‘Dil Chahta Hai’ and ‘Don’ (of Shah Rukh Khan). It seems that she had learnt taking from her director brother because her takings are perfect and some of her shots are excellent. She has shot exterior scenes and outdoor scenes excellently.

Conclusion

While watching this film of 3 friends you may remember ‘Dil Chahta Hai’ which Zoya’s brother Farhan had directed some years back starring Aamir Khan, Akshay Khanna etc. The film Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara contains thrill, romance and some visuals which you would love to watch on silver screen. Though this film is commercially not fully entertaining; it’s a well made film. No vulgar language or vulgar scenes are incorporated intentionally to attract the viewers.
