Sushant Singh Rajput and Sanjana Sanghi’s Dil Bechara released yesterday and it continues to be in the news. The movie is a remake of The Fault In Our Stars, which is an adaptation of a book by the same name. The movie was one of the most awaited for obvious reasons and has worked very well.
However, what happens to be a matter of concern for some is how the ratings have been on a rise, but not rightly so. The movie has not received criticism per se, but netizens do feel that it is also not all that great. With an IMDb rating that is soaring high, it has raised some questions regarding viewers and their perceptions.
For starters, there is a comment about the film doing the rounds, which suggests that an IMDb rating like this highlights how the audiences are rather fake. In fact, since Dil Bechara is SSR’s last, people are also wondering where did all this love go during Sonchiriya.

Dil Bechara celebrates life, love, and so much more. However, the movie is as good as any Bollywood love story, and coming from the book that was such a hit, it has been doing well. None the less, it is also about the quality of cinema that we want to celebrate, in more ways than one.
This is to say how in an attempt to show our respects to SSR, Dil Bechara cannot be given more credits than it deserves. Anyone who watches the film will have this constant smile on their face, but it is for Sushant, and we all need to agree to it.
If we really want to celebrate quality cinema, we must do so by watching films, in theatres too (when that happens). Meanwhile, if we as an audience want to celebrate Sushant, it must be done by ensuring we respect artists. Moreover, it is also important to do away with the evils from Bollywood like nepotism, star power (Khans, for example) among other things.
