Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara – A Review!

Aug 4th, 2011 | By | Category: Movie Review

Zoya’s brother, Farhan, had made his directorial debut with a similar movie, Dil Chahta Hai, which presented the life of three male friends, their life and tribulations. ZMND is also an out an out male bonding film, with a slightly different take. The three are school friends, who go for a Bachelor trip to Spain, right before one of them is getting hitched.

There were lots of visitors at all the memorials, but what struck me instantly was the composition of the crowd at these places. There were only three kinds of people: Foreigners, school children and local tourists, the percentage of each group, lesser than the last one.
