Among the few choices for the weekend movie, the needle shifted to ZNMD (Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara) and we watched it on Sunday. The morning schedule is shrunk a bit to make room for the movie and we headed for the morning show. Got positive feedback on the movie from the coworkers and relatives who watched it already, but the movie really exceeded expectations.
I like several aspects of the movie. Good visuals, simple story, catchy songs, refreshing background score, bundles of humor and to beat them all, superb performances by the key cast. Hrithik and Katrina top the performers list, even though you can’t give any lower marks to Abhay and Farhan. The adventure sports, the heart of the story, are filmed very well in the movie. The funny one liners got really good response in theater – the audience got good exercise for their ribs for at least half the length of the movie.
After the movie, I kept wondering how the storyteller could create such a good feel for the bonding between three schoolmates, without even showing a single scene of their school days.
Time well spent on a Sunday!
