What has worked in the favour of the film?
The content of Dear Zindagi has been appreciated widely. With its universal appeal, the Gauri Shinde directorial touched the right chord among the audience. While a few mentioned issues with its slow pace, the subtility, and the positive attitude that it tried to preach remain the most connecting part. Also, with Force 2 and Rock On 2 being the victims of demonetisation at the Box Office, Dear Zindagi seems to be bringing back the audience to the screens. This, in lieu, is a good sign for filmmakers as audience appears to be giving the response that a rich content-based film like Dear Zindagi deserves to be at the Box Office.
