Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara

Reviews for ZNMD, Zoya Akthar's new movie from Excel Entertainment, look great across the board. Since the dialogue, written by Zoya's brother Farhan, is noted in the reviews I'll have to wait for a subtitled version. The Hindi will be too nuanced for me.

Excel shook up the masala formula at the turn of the century with Dil Chahta Hai, another film about three young men finding themselves, and did another great road movie, Honeymoon Travels, a few years ago. Despite the similarities in theme, the three films are radically different. Produced by Ritesh Sidhwani.
