Introduction to the movie
‘Dil Bechara’ establishes itself in Jamshedpur and introduces us to the Basu family. Kizie Basu (Sanjana Sanghi) suffers from thyroid cancer, which has now affected her lungs, requiring her to support oxygen almost all the time. With rock-solid support from her parents, Kizie lives as she arrives, even visiting several hospitals daily in her stride. But what she longs for is a normal life like any girl’s age – with regular problems like boyfriends, Crush et al.
Instead what she is doing involves the funerals of those she does not know, to feel a connection to the inevitable that lies ahead of her. She meets Emmanuel Rajkumar Jr. or Manny (Sushant Singh Rajput) in a cancer support group before and after college. And gave him a calm, introverted nature, first of all, he is wary of his high energy, over-excitement, and ego. Manny has his own story – he survived osteosarcoma and has a case of cancer currently.
The two form a beautiful bond as the two strike a beautiful bond, which manages to penetrate its way into her heart, though Kizie was trying to break a heart for him, after all.
When Manny decides to go out to fulfill his long-standing desire to meet his favorite musician, Abhimanyu Vaid (Saif Ali Khan), he realizes that she has fallen for him. But does she know that a sad twist awaits her in the story?
Given its poignant premise, Dil Bechara ‘makes for a very emotional timepiece. Even as the underlying message of the story, celebrating life despite knowing the inevitable, injects it with tremendous infectious energy. Especially as Manny’s character, who really wants to grab every moment of the day.
Performance of Sushanth and actors
Sushanth Singh Rajput, understanding the depth of his character, shines with brilliant acting that is sensitive, intense, vibrant, and sensitive. It is with a heavy mind that one sees her effortlessly under the skin of her character and exudes a natural allure. With this, it is well that the actor gets involved in the legacy of his commendable work in a short time. And watch out for his brilliant moves in the one-shot title track, choreographed by Farah Khan.
Sanjana Sanghi who makes her debut in a lead role in Dil Bechara gives an assured, benevolent and confident performance. Supporting actors, especially Swastika Mukherjee and Saswata Chatterjee, such as Kizie’s parents are brilliant and Saif Ali Khan is notable in a cameo.
The soundtrack of Dil Bechara (written by AR Rahman and lyrics by Amitabh Bhattacharya) is introduced to some superb, foot-tapping music – particularly Khulke Jeena Ka, Taare Gine, and the title track, Dil Bechara. The chemistry between the lead pair is refreshing to see, especially in the beautiful shot (Satyajit Pandey’s cinematography) in Paris.
The Team behind the movie
Director Mukesh Chhabra and writers Suprotim Sengupta and Shashank Khaitan ensured the narrative flow, through some tenders, touching the moments between Keiji and Manny and Kizie and her parents. And be prepared for some heart-wrenching scenes and dialogues that will definitely make you tear up.

Watch this film to see the last acting of Sushant Singh Rajput. A brilliant one at that.
