The trailer of Sushant Singh Rajput and Sanjana Sanghi’s much-awaited film Dil Bechara is out, and it promises to take viewers on an emotional journey, involving two hopelessly in love youngsters. Dil Bechara, which was previously titled Kizie Aur Manny, marks the directorial debut of casting director Mukesh Chhabra. It will premiere on Disney Plus Hotstar on July 24.
Dil Bechara revolves around Kizie, suffering from cancer, and a cancer survivor Manny, who meet at a support group. The trailer, at the outset, hints that this isn’t going to be a regular love story. Kizie is a nerd who has accepted her short life, expecting little adventure, but that’s only till she meets Manny, a flamboyant guy who is everything Kizie would want in her mundane life. Cupid strikes, and Kizie begins to dream the impossible. Soon reality comes calling, but her efforts to keep away from Manny go in vain. They are inseparable now.
The trailer’s high point is how Sushant Singh Rajput gets into the skin of Manny who is charming, funny and caring. His efforts to woo Kizie are some of the most adorable moments here. From ensuring she laughs her heart out to making her heart beat faster in love, Manny tries to fulfil everything Kizie wants before their love story ends. Even if it means accompanying her to the hospital or taking her to Paris.
Sanjana Sanghi, who makes her debut as a lead, looks promising. The other high point is the film’s music by Oscar-winning composer AR Rahman. It is youthful and something to watch out for.
Dil Bechara is the official Hindi adaptation of John Green’s 2012 bestseller The Fault In Our Stars. The Hollywood film with the same name was helmed by Josh Boone, and starred Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort. It received worldwide recognition for showcasing a sensitive and unique love story. Writer John Green had earlier said he found it amazing that his piece of work was being made into a film in India.
Dil Bechara, which was shot in the summer of 2018, also stars Swastika Mukherjee, Javed Jaffrey, Milind Gunaji and Sahil Vaid, and features Saif Ali Khan in a cameo. It is being presented by Fox Star Studios.
The fact that Dil Bechara would the last time that audiences will get to watch late actor Sushant Singh Rajput on screen is leaving fans excited, yet heartbroken.
