ZNMD was one of the most anticipated films in Hindi in recent times and I had liked the earlier work of its director Zoya Akhtar a lot. Given that the film released a week later in Singapore vs. other countries, there was already a lot of word of mouth going around about it and people seemed to have loved it. So I too, was really looking forward to this one.
And it didn't disappoint. Sure, it is not the best Hindi movie ever made or anything like that, but it was definitely a very fun watch thanks to the dialogues and performances, even though I am not really a huge fan of the entire premise and storyline.
More than the film itself, I thoroughly enjoyed the experience of going for it. The nerve wrecking anticipation of whether we would get tickets or not, the rounding up of friends to go for it, the pre-show Starbucks Chai Latte, the dinner before, the review conversation after etc. etc.
It made my Sunday pretty relaxed and nice, and a welcome change from the hectic week behind as well as the hectic Saturday (albeit being a fun one, several hours of auditions did drain me out).
So yes, found this Sunday pretty nice as well...!
387 more to go.
