Sushant Singh Rajput’s Dil Bechara was released on Disney+Hotstar on July 24 at 7:30 pm. The OTT platform made a decision of making this film accessible for everyone, even the non-subscribers can view the movie. The OTT officials and makers made this decision as a tribute to the late actor.
In spite of making it free for everyone, the movie has been leaked on the torrent sites.
According to a report in Pinkvilla, the leaked version of the film is also available in the HD quality. The movie was available on torrent websites like Tamil Rockers within few hours of its official release.
Sushant Singh Rajput and Sanjana Sanghi starrer Dil Bechara is also a directorial debut of the casting director Mukesh Chhabra. The movie was opened to decent reviews. Hindustan Times review said: “Dil Bechara is a celebration of Sushant and the deep love that brought him to Mumbai, and made him a star. The film is about the millions of fans who are bidding goodbye to their loved one, beyond the hostility and bitter primetime debates.”
“Adapted by Shashank Khaitan and Suprotim Sengupta, the script loses the novel’s acerbic humour and its hyper-verbal but self-aware leads. If The Fault in Our Stars was a YA cancer drama about two people who refuse to take any of the platitudes seriously, Dil Bechara is primarily a romance of two star-crossed lovers,” it adds.
The late actor’s fans loved the movie and started pouring out their love on social media platforms.
One Twitter user wrote: “Just finished watching #DilBechara. Sushant shines in every frame as he always did and the film reminds us again of the humongous loss. I don’t recall the last time a film made me cry but then again he always succeeded in making the audience feel what he wanted. Thank you,Sush.”
