It is heartening to see the fair share of criticism Dear Zindagi is receiving, because the movie is making people probe and express their dissatisfaction - which is what it intends to do. There is nothing like negative feedback - it all helps us grow - and an art form is displayed to provoke, not to be praised. This is subtle cinema, and has done its job well.
Neeta inspires focus and bubbling joy. When she says "there can be nothing wrong in a drawing", she also subtly reminds us to be accepting of who we are, the way we are. When she shares her curiosity of knowing how a decision is made, she recommends a certain hunger to go deeper into the experiences we have. She inspires a liberating flight.
