Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara is a film about three young men who take a holiday that changes their lives. Kabir (Abhay Deol) is engaged to Natasha (Kalki Koechlin),the daughter of a rich hotelier. Before his marriage,Kabir decides to go on a three-week long road trip with his childhood friends Imraan (Farhan Akhtar) and Arjun (Hrithik Roshan).

Arjun,who is too tied up with his work,tries to backout. But after much emotional blackmail and cajoling,the three friends set off on a journey that they had planned to take four years ago.

Kabir,Imraan and Arjun meet up in Barcelona and set off on an adventure that not only helps them iron out their differences but also face their fears and alter their perceptions about life.

Katrina Kaif essays the role of Laila,a bohemian fashion student from London.

The Buzz:
