ZNMD Storyline: Three young men take a holiday that changes their lives forever. Kabir [ Abhay Deol] is engaged to Natasha [Kalki].

The only problem is Arjun is too tied up with work. After much emotional blackmail and cajoling, the boys set off on a journey they were meant to take four years ago. A fantasy holiday they had planned to take after college, which never happened. A road trip where each one gets to do the ultimate sport of his choice and the other two just have to do it with him. Whether they want to or not. Kabir, Imraan and Arjun meet up in Barcelona and set off on an adventure that not only make them iron out their differences, but also face their fears, alter their perception, unravel their fabric, force them to break out of the box and teach them to seize the day. This holiday changes their lives forever.


ZNMD Performances: Everybody is excellent, just the way the movie demanded. Hrithik Roshan , as always, weaves magic with his charisma. Farhan Ahtar comes up with very impressive performance and the film shows his Dedication. Abhay Deol is dependable yet again. He is so comfortable in light roles that even if he sleepwalks, he’d make you giggle. Katrina kaif gave a promising performance with this film. She looks beautiful in every frame and her figure compliments her role in a healthy way.Kalki has a very unique and different looks in ZNMD movie. Her costume, expressions and acting is really very appreciating in the movie. Ariadna Cabrol and Lolo Herrero complemented extremely well by playing their parts.


ZNMD Technical Aspects: The cinematography is too impressive as every frame wears a rich look and goes well with the narration, which in turn was supported by performances. The locales are also filmed exquisitely. The background music is mind-blowing and the songs are just rocking. Screenplay is just awesome and the storyline has been given a distinctive treatment so it does fall under the run-of-the-mill category.

Plot is simple but successfully grabs attention. All the scenes in the film helps to keep you amused. Director makes you feel that the film is a complete entertainer without much spins and curls. Every frame showcased is rich and healthy. Overall, technically the movie is of first rate.

The Best of Zindagi Milegi Na Dobara were the shayari‘s by Javed saab every shayari was an jewel to the screenplay..


Dilon mein tum apni bettabiyaan leke chal rahe ho toh zinda ho tum…

naazar mein khwaaboon ki bijiliyaan leke chal rahe ho toh zinda ho tum

Hawaa ke jhonkon ke jaise azad rehna seeko

Tum ek dariya ke jaise lehron mein behna seekho

Har ek lamhe se tum milo khole apni baahein

Har ek pal ik naya samaan dekhein yeh nigaahein..


was the one of the best shayari i remembered 🙂


The writing in the first half hits the high note but second half should also have been little more well integrated. Overall ZNMD,  A laugh-riot that talks about the most important of human pursuits self-actualization.

Final Word: Worth Watch Movie
