Dil Bechara Verdict
As a whole Dil Bechara is a heart touching romantic tragedy with a predictable storyline. The initial 20 minutes of the movie is slow and the romance happens easily between the couple. The director has rushed up things a bit. Therefore, the film is good but the flow of emotions is not proper. However, Sushant Singh Rajput, through his magical acting and killer personality has nailed the movie and kept his audience hooked. The movie is worth the watch at least once to enjoy his screen presence one last time. On a scale of 5, Ibgerd has rated this movie a 3!
