5 Excellent

The impeccable performance of Alia Bhatt (her best till date) and the irresistible charm of Shah Rukh Khan as an actor and not as a superstar plus the slice of life cache that cuts its path to the urban heart strings manages to stir the soul of the multiplex audience, although appeal may not be as deep or long-lasting as Gauri Shinde's magical debut ENGLISH VINGLISH.

Director Gauri has brought out facets of SRK’s personality never seen before. Can’t wait for them to come together again. We can safely assume there r now 2 Gauri-s in SRK life.#DearZindagi
Dear Zindagi will take aliaa to the next level & SRK no need any level

Once he’s there in #DearZindagi, srk is all there. He takes over the show, as only he can. He is in almost every frame. what a delight to see him shed his habitual mannerisms, to give a completely natural unaffected gentle & moving performance.

Anyways Gauri's narration is free flowing like water and absorbing though the script gets more talkative in the second half and gets locked in the indoors failing to explore the exotic beauty of Goa to its full potential.

DEAR ZINDAGI is a film of top acting powers and phenomenal Direction. Must Watch
