Ever experienced heartbreak? It could be for various reason: loss of a job or relationship, or death in a family, among other things. But it's the sinking feeling in your stomach that doesn't let you sleep, eat or make sense of anything.

This exact feeling is the basis of Alia Bhatt and Shah Rukh Khan's next song from Dear Zindagi, 'Just Go To Hell Dil'.

Alia's character is seen having various interactions (of the romantic kind) with Angad Bedi and Kunaal Kapoor, and yet as the song plays out, she is shown pacing around her home, get angry, vulnerable, upset and frustrated. This song addresses the feeling of things not working out your way, especially matters of the heart.

More than the song, Alia's portrayal of what heartbreak feels like is excruciatingly accurate. She goes through a mix of emotions, and once that's done she's seen exercising, mingling with people and then finally meeting Shah Rukh Khan (her life coach) in order to make some headway.

Through the song, we see how Alia deals with the process of letting things go, and it resonates with each one of us who has been in this place before.

The song itself is rather average and forgettable, and we'd wish for a song like this (based on Alia) there were a fresher voice involved. While there is no doubt Sunidhi is a stellar singer, Alia deserves a more intense, a more unique voice.
