Most of the Bollywood movies today are either centered around weddings or life before and after marriages. Love Breakups Zindagi falls in the second category and it revolves around the complications of relationship and how we urban people handle our relationships and what we might go through. Directed by Sahil Sangha, Love Breakups Zindagi stars Zayed Khan, Dia Mirza, Cyrus Sahukar, Tisca Chopra, Satyadeep Mishra, Vaibhav Talwar, Auritra Ghosh, Umang Jain, and Soni Razdan.

The plot basically revolves around the two main characters Jai (Zayed) and Naina (Dia). While Jai is already busy with Radhika (Pallavi Sharda), Naina is already in relationship with Dhruv (Vaibhav Talwar). On the other hand, they both have a common friend Govind (Cyrus) who is already divorced but now he is getting married again with Sheila (Tisca) and that is where Jai and Naina both meet. This is the moment where both the characters feel that they are made for each other and that they are not really happy with their current relationship and they decide to make things work for them.

On performance level, both Zayed and Dia perform well enough but there is nothing much in the plot that they can handle. Zayed does look very sincere in his performance and Dia is strikingly good but that is the only good thing in the movie. Tisca Chopra and Cyrus Sahukar are good when they are on screen and they keep the audiences happy whenever they deliver some funny dialogues. However, the rest of the cast is just okay and nothing much to watch. Technically, the cinematography by Aseem Bajaj is brilliant and one can see some really nice shots from different angle. This is the reason why movie looks good to watch because the camera work is brilliantly done. The music by Salim Sulaiman is not bad as well. Rab Rakha is the best song of the lot along with Rozana and Main se Meena Se. However, there are some drawbacks as well in the movie. The story and screenplay by Sahil Sangha is not up to the mark and audiences are well aware of what is going to happen next. With very predictable story line the audiences get bored very quickly. The pace of the story post interval is very slow and that can put some viewers to sleep and boredom. The climax of the movie actually ruins the entire movie experience and the story writer should have worked hard on getting some different climax rather than keeping the same old passable climax.

To conclude, Love Breakups Zindagi is an average movie about life and about relationships but there is nothing new that this movie has for the audience. The movie takes some scenes from Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and other family drama movies but it does not work well. If you love emotional family dramas then this movie is for you, or else you can skip this one.
