Dear Zindagi Take 4: SRK's voiceover and Alia's emotional turmoil make for an intense teaser


Love. Heartbreak. Rage. We've always been encouraged to maintain status quo rather than expressing ourselves with abandon.

This is what `Take 4’, the new teaser of Dear Zindagi, hammers home. The teaser begins with the voiceover of Shah Rukh Khan and Bhatt’s character displaying diverse range of emotions. The inhibitions have stayed with her and crippled her ability to love freely.

As soon as Khan’s voiceover ends, Sunidhi Chauhan’s vocals infuse the viewers with energy and renewed hope with her rendition of the song Just Go To Hell, Oh Dil. Bhatt translates the essence of the song appropriately on the screen as she dances, devoid of any restraint.

What works for the trailer is Khan’s articulate voice, Bhatt’s nuanced acting that allows the viewers to peek into the deep emotional turmoil within her, the undeterred vocals of Chauhan and the simple yet catchy lyrics written by Kausar Munir. Amit Trivedi's music adds to the appeal.

The teaser ends with Khan quoting Albert Einstein in one of his life lessons to Bhatt.

This is the fourth teaser released by the makers Gauri Shinde, Karan Johar and R Balki. They had decided to release four 'takes' of the film, instead of a full fledged theatrical trailer, since Bhatt plays a budding filmmaker. The four 'takes' consist of four life lessons that Khan’s character explains to Bhatt’s character.

Dear Zindagi is slated to release on 25 November.
