Watch the ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’ Trailer Here
There are many things to love about Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, Zoya Akhtar’s new film which should be in theatres this July. First, the trailer was officially launched online, rather than in theatres, which shows a friendly attitude towards the Internet that is rarely glimpsed in Bollywood. Second, the title is spelt normally instead of numerologically or with SMS spellings. Third, it’s as though the director sat down and thought, “Must have eye-candy for all women”. Consequently, the film stars Bollywood’s über-hunk Hritihik Roshan, the cerebral movie watcher’s darling Abhay Deol and Farhan Akhtar, who isn’t as buff as Roshan or as indie as Deol but, being a happy medium of the two, has an endearing combination of musculature and goofiness. Fourth, for the gents, there’s Katrina Kaif who gets drenched in tomato sauce at some point in the movie. She’s also a diving instructor, which doesn’t mean a bikini but it does mean a skintight wetsuit. Finally, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara is about a holiday that three friends take just before one of them gets married. Whereas some Indian men are allowed a bachelor party, Deol gets a three-week long bachelor trip to Spain before his wedding. Lads should be taking their girlfriends and fiancees to see this movie in droves, just to turn this fiction into a tradition.
