 Ratings:3.5/5 Reviewer:Rajeev Masand Site:IBNLive
Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara takes the light-hearted tone of a fun, all-boys road trip through Spain to give you a deep and heartfelt message on why we should live life by seizing the moment and following our hearts. What makes Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara that much more enjoyable are the performances. But a quibble I have with this film is that it takes too long to reach its destination and gets sidetracked by a couple of sentimental detours. It lingers too long in certain scenarios, and this sucks some of the fun out of the ride. Yet, I’m going with three-and-a-half out of five for Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara.

Ratings:3.5/5 Reviewer:Taran Adarsh Site:BollywoodHungama
ZINDAGI NA MILEGI DOBARA is real and can be rightly termed as a slice of life film.  In ZINDAGI NA MILEGI DOBARA, Zoya chooses an attention-grabbing story and garnishes it well with moments that may seem straight out of a person's memoirs. In fact, it's a completely novel take on comrades and camaraderie. While the first half has several wonderful moments  the post-interval portions -- right till the well-thought-of culmination -- keeps your attention arrested. On the whole, ZINDAGI NA MILEGI DOBARA has its share of plusses and minuses, highs and lows. It's definitely not for ardent fans of kitsch or those with an appetite for typical masala entertainers. This one's more for spectators with refined tastes and sensibilities.

Zoya Akhtar's Spain odyssey demands just one thing from you: that you slip into adventure mode and then go with the flow.... Rest assured, you're in for a merry ride, with loads of thrills, emotional banter, romance and camaraderie between a host of characters who seem to be having as much fun as you. There seems to be one small little snag however. The first half of the film is low on drama and proceeds as a touristy piece on Spain.It's the second half of the film which emerges as a scintillating insight into friendship, emotional growth and bonding.

 Ratings:3/5 Reviewer:Saibal Chatterjee Site:NDTV
Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara has a simple enough narrative core that revolves around the three male protagonists seeking to breakfree from the confines of their respective boxes. Their struggles yield many charming moments although one cannot avoid the sneaking suspicion that this cheerful ode to life, love and friendship is as much about telling a story as about a selling a country to prospective tourists. Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara does exude pronounced traces of the spirit of Dil Chahta Hai, but its essential rhythm is its own, stemming from the dynamics of a full-fledged road movie shot through with intelligence, emotion and, above all, humanism.

  Ratings:1.5/5 Reviewer:Raja Sen Site:Rediff
The threadbare story is about a bachelor trip in Spain, gorgeously shot by cinematographer Carlos Catalan..Zindagi Na Mile Dobara doesn't earn our laughs. So fixated is the film on trying to appear 'cool', even 'minty-fresh,' that the emotional connects all seem like afterthoughts. Especially the flashback each boy has, and their subsequent, convenient epiphany. It's all so surfacial and unnecessary, even when well-performed.Maybe what Zoya really meant by the title is her attempt to cram absolutely everything into a movie in the case that she never gets to make another one.

DCH was a film about a certain kind of privileged young, displaying a certain kind of privileged angst, but it spoke to us. Zindagi Na Mile Dobara is a well-shot road trip, which strings together a series of pretty picture card snapshots, whose characters do not spark or crackle except in stray moments. ZNMD is designed as a feel-good bromance.This could have been a `DCH’ with a bite; it ends up being a good-looking but bland touristy delight.

Watch the flick for some light moments full of fun and laughter. The flick is packed with guy jokes and boys will surely love the humour. There's a feeling of freshness in the movie, thanks to the never seen before cast, definitely something to look out for. The road trip is bound to entertain you to the hilt.The first part is little low on drama, as most of the time the stars are seen checking in and out of the hotels.Barring that, the movie is a very good watch.

Witty dialogue (credited to Farhan himself), playful chitchat and the camaraderie between the friends personify Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. However, the lack of chemistry among them in the first hour cannot be ignored. ZNMD has so many silent moments, it's likely to put you to sleep.Now if you take DCH as the benchmark, it's up to you how slow/polished/boring/unnecessary/pretty you find ZNMD.For those (which, I assume, is a lot of us), who may not be able to afford a holiday in Spain for any time soon, go catch ZNMD for good performances, music, Spain and of course, Farhan Akhtar in his element.

  6. To me and for most, who are in the filmbiz, the reviews of Taran Adarsh & Nikhat Kazmi matters the most. By the way who the hell is Raja Sen?

  11. another disappointment !!!

    There is an old hindi saying "nakal ke liye akal chahiye" (you have to be wise to copy), this exactly fits on this movie..

    The movie is frame by frame adaptation of another hollywood movie but director failed to present it for indian audiences.. the bad part is unpredictable body language and the western jokes, which doesn't connect to Indian audiences..

    It seems like Rithik Roshan is still trying to make a fortune in European cinema (he already experimented with hair colours, regional dubbings,, etc, etc)

    dont go with bogus reviews, its a sheer wastage of time watching this crap.

    my ratings -> 2/1

    ReplyDelete
  12. the movie should not get a rating above 1.5, as this is a plotless garbage movie.

    painful to watch more than 30 minutes.

  13. ZNMD is a poetry on celluloid..a must watch..infinite times better than crappy Ready

    ReplyDelete
  14. no soul in the movie ....zoya lacks skills only delight was nazzeruddin shah steals the screen for a moment and suddenly u realise dat u r watching some ameature performances

    ReplyDelete
  15. ZNMD is total crap. Just 'coz you put in a group of good actors (excluding Katrina) and good looking outdoors (loved the way Spain was shot by the cinematographer), you can't make a good movie. Zoya ain't any good but who cares? As you're the sister of Farhan Akhtar, there will always be someone to finance your crap projects. Pity that there are super talented directors like Bejoy Nambiar who can't get a producer for a brilliant movie like Shaitan which has none of the so called big stars in it.

  16. i can't believe i wasted 2 and a half hours of my precious time for a horrendous movie like this.... Its better you watch discovery travel and living... That'll be more interesting...

    ReplyDelete
  17. Yet another 3rd class garbage movie.. strictly not recommended to be seen with family.

    this is story of 3 freaky rich friends seeking adventure in life and they do many crazy things including visiting nude beaches .. idiotism beyond imagination..

    I feel pity on director as she was certainly not having any script at all or was simply thinking of making a soft-po*n movie and the results are obvious.

    dont waste time on this idiotic nonsense crap.

    rating should be 2/10

    ReplyDelete
  18. IT IS A MASTER PIECE....HRITHIK RULES AS ALWAYS.. FARHAN AND ABHAY ARE GOOD TOO....GO AND WATCH IT WITH YOUR FAMILY......WE WILL LIVE LIFE MORE THAN EVER AFTER SEEING THIS FILM...MY RATING...8/10.

  23. i think all critics except nikhat kazmi and taran adarsh can be trusted.yet not seen this movie.taran idiot gave double dhamaal 4 stars.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Its pretty lame on part of Indian film makers when they attempt to showcase westernization and end up making such crap.The movie should be a reflection of society and the story should be such that the common mass can relate to it.But makers like karan Jauhar,Siddharth Anand etc. try to showcase irrelevant plots as if every Indian is well to do.Delhi belly was pretty ok though.The filth is part of language and it apperas natural.don't compare yourself to hollywood coz when u try to do so u always fall million inches short.

  25. The whole urban indian population seem to be behind this. How thirdrate a movie is this..Frahan Akthar is become an SOB now..Pathetic Indian Audience.. It feel shame to be a part of this people..

    ReplyDelete
  26. garbage movie, dont waste your time.

    ReplyDelete
  27. the problem with present film-makers is that they lack good scripts and are simply copying western movies and trying to sell them to Indian audiences..

    these nonsense movies are only targeted to Urban Metro population and are like fast food.. you never see them them liked at other places except metros.

    these insane film-makers will not be able to fool the indian masses for a long time, very soon even multiplexes will avoid screening of these nonsense movies..

  28. raja sen is a totally shit reviewer. he can never make a good movie in hsi life. i dont think he even knows abour cinema. ZNMD rocks.

    Raja sen is speaking all this shit only to seek some attention, but he fails. Whatever he may say, ZNMD will be a hit.


    Trana Adarsh, Rajjev masand and Nikhat kazmi are genuine critics who give their reviews only on genuine merits. they are not biased like this shit person Raja Sen.

  29. bakawas film hai..
    just wasted time and money...
    if any one want to see adventure or thrill just switch on discover channel or some sport channel..
    you can experience real adventure not fake one...
    I rate the move -5000..

  30. totally copy movie of The Hangover...

  31. How can some one give 1.5 to a movie like this.This raja sen must be some drunk,doped wannabe critic completely out of his mind.Or may be the idea of movie is beyond the understanding of his bong mentality.

  33. Indian cinema has lost its class! Where are the days when cinema used to be a fine art! We need actors man, no po*n stars, plz! Vulgars and sexual contents are the most useful assets to attract the audience to cinema halls, now a days!! And themeless stories which Indian viewers can't even relate to! Wer r we going? And y r we encouraging this sh*t???

  42. Nice movie. Worth watching twice, will remind of your missed chances & pranks that u left back & still can do with friends. Star power is there which gives it a must watch.

    ReplyDelete
  43. how on earth people liked this movi... comeon it was boring.. first half was relatively better.. overall its hard to say its a good movie

    ReplyDelete
  44. it is not a copy of hangover, not a bogus, crappy movie.. it is not a movie for general masses.. if you loved dhobi ghat and are a big fan of classy, witty cinema (and not salman chhap bakwas comedy), if u love emotional journeys than go watch it.. the saddist reviews above are given by anonymous mostly (i wont be surprised if all have been written by one person). However if you love watching masala, dhinchak, tadak bhadak types of movies and plz don't go... i would surely sit and watch this movie atleast two more times. made me laugh like hell, made me smile a lot and made me think in plenty amount... go watch it for awesome performance by farhan akhtar!!

    ReplyDelete
  45. good movie... go for it guys...

    ReplyDelete
  46. why you people are wasting your time discussing this nonsense crap which is already declared a FLOP..
    No one is even interested in watching this 3rd grade movie on pirated DVD,s.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Big flop of 2011, people rightfully rejected this plotless directionless garbage movie.

    ReplyDelete
  48. The movie had a potential to become a philosophical and poetic movie but the director has squandered the possibility. She tried to be too smart and fell down. Good enough movie but could have been great. Ch ch ch!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Most disappointing film as far as story is concerned. No story at all it is just like a documentary. The director & producers have cheated the audience. The 70% of the film is used in showing the famous sports world over like sea diving, sky diving, tomatino festival and bull race. Hritik looks good. No story nothing. The story line is just a spoon full of Dil Chahata hai.

  67. Indian film watcher...August 3, 2011 at 12:05 AM

    such a lame movie..... script writer himself is confused about the story and doesnt even know what should be the screen play..... one of the third class movie/ story/ screen play. Why would some stupid want audience to show different adventures the actors are doing....no logic at all. I would suggest to watch National geographic channels adventures films instead of this movie. Just full of crap!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  68. super film man, just watch it.......................

  69. What a load of crap this movie is.....this movie is for the people who don't have enough friends....

    This movie was a waste of time!!!!

  73. The concept is good but the film takes such a long time unravelling that it actually gets quite boring - except for the beautiful cinematography and the magic of Spain. It was great to see the running of the bulls and the flamenco captured authentically in the film (although the tomatino festival fun the gang of four had was definitely not in the spirit of Spain, more Bollywood iishtyle) ...all said and done, its a good effort on the realistic subject of the confusions and the challenges of our urban folk...and the actors did a great job with what they had, besides being so good looking as to give the handsome Spaniards a run for their money...but a lot of the scenes could definitely have been shortened.

  74. It's an awesome movie..i just loved it while watching..and the best part of the movie were the poems of Farhan ! Also not to forget Hrithik's acting..just superb!!

  75. ******** JUST ONE COMMENT *********

    Those who said this movie is a CRAP, are those who never loved or never being loved or doesn't have any real life or doesn't have real good friends or Those who are envy on other who has these.

    Just ASK yourself, Your ego may never let you to admit.
    BUT YOU CANNOT LIE TO YOUR SOUL. ITS JUST IMPOSSIBLE.
