A Tribute to Sushant Singh Rajput
Dil Bechara……Well, this movie is a big tribute to the versatile actor Sushant Singh Rajput. Dil Bechara is an emotional saga between a lovely couple who are determined not to let the sense of mortality weigh them down. Manny (Sushant Singh Rajput) is a bubbly boy in the city of Jamshedpur who tries to make every light of his disability caused by cancer. He brings zest to his life with a beautiful bond with a terminally ill Kizie Basu (Sanjana Sanghi) who is confined to her oxygen cylinder Pushpinder.
The movie is all about the fear of losing each other. Every moment is captured brilliantly. Manny and Kizie meet in college and as they strike a lovely rapport, they bring out beautiful emotions in their sparkling passages infused with warm humor.
Kizie is in search of her favorite singer and wants to know more about his unfinished song. While Manny wants to make a movie for his best pal Jagdish Pandey (Sahil Vaid) another cancer patient. Manny wants to play the role of Rajnikant and make Kizie as the heroine.
Convincing Kizie makes Manny understand her desire to meet her favorite singer and this path also leads them to a deeper attachment with their catchword “Seri” which means OK.
Manny and Kizie become the two inseparable souls, together who try to make the most of the limited time they have. They travel to Paris to meet Kizie’s favorite singer and figure out why he has not finished his last song. And, well the reclusive singer Kizie adores a man (Saif Ali Khan) who is a psycho battling his own weirdness. But Manny completes the song for her with his killer smile with his delicate medical condition.
In the end, when Kizie pays a teary-eyed tribute to Manny, it is hard to detach the sequence from Sushant Singh Rajput’s reality, where it is much more moving than fiction.
So, in your favorite Rajnikant (Thalaiva) style would like to say hey Sushant hope you are “Seri” wherever you are.
