“The artist is gone but the art lives on.”
There is no better way to describe Dil Bechara.
So the wait is over! The entire nation today watched Dil Bechara on Hotstar. The love from people for Sushant Singh Rajput came pouring in with such intensity that according to director Hansal Mehta, Hotstar seemed to have crashed.
John Greene must be happy with this adaptation of his book The Fault in Our Stars. It was almost flawless. We were lost in the worlds of Manny and Kizzie. The charm that Sushant exudes, made it difficult to even look away. Sanjana was wonderful and sure has a lovely career ahead. Saif Ali Khan’s cameo was like a cherry on the cake. But what made the movie one of the best we have seen this year is AR Rehman’s music. First time director Mukesh Chhabra delivers to perfection in this Sushant Singh starrer
The last half an hour of this beautiful movie was like a reflection of the real world we live in and we are sure there was not a single dry eye then.
Love from people have been pouring from whole country which shows in the IMDb rating of the movie as well. It is at 9.8 with 20k votes.
According to a Mid-Day report, a representative for the firm, Ormax Media, believes the numbers are comparable to viewership figures of the massively popular HBO series Game of Thrones, although he didn’t provide any further data.
“If one wants to, comparisons could be drawn [between the viewership] of Dil Bechara, and that of [the much-acclaimed series] Game of Thrones, and this was possible even though the latter had a pre-existing viewer-base, while the film [did not]. Then again, Hotstar promoted Dil Bechara from the onset, marketing its release date and time well in advance. Viewers showed up in unison to watch it.”
Some critics have even decided to not review the movie
All we can say is well done Sushant! Your parting gift to us all may just be the best one.
Friyay’s take: Leave everything and watch this.
We leave you with some tweets from some celebrities praising Sushant, Sanjana & Mukesh Chhabra. Dil Bechara will stay in our hearts forever 🙂
