Magical 8 Years—8 Things That ZNMD Taught us


“Dilon Mein Tum Apni Betaabiyan Leke Chal Rahe Ho Toh Zinda Ho Tum

Mein Khwaabon Ki Bijliyan Leke Chal Rahe Ho Toh Zinda Ho Tum”

Let’s just be honest. After watching ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’ (ZNMD), weren’t you too excited about the next trip with your best friends? You must have taken out that old dusty diary from your cupboard and made a bucket list. Zoya Akhtar changed Bollywood’s vision by giving us our beloved ZNMD. But apart from giving us some major travel goals, the movie definitely hit us with some life inspiring lessons. On its eight anniversary, we bring you eight things that ZNMD has taught us. 


1. Face Your Fear

Remember how Arjun is scared of water and Imran has a fear of heights? You might not be able to overcome your fears in one day, but once you face it you will at least gather strength to face it again.

2. It’s Okay To Be Unsure

So you are not sure about the person you are going to marry. IT IS OKAY. This decision will affect your life and if you don’t choose your partner with all your heart, it is meaningless.

3. Balance Is Important

You can’t spend your life just working. Or by only making jokes all around. You need to pave a path which is a mixture of both work and fun. Give yourself a reality check and make yourself happy.


4. Seize The Day My Friend

Neither what happened in the past nor what will happen in the future should matter at the present moment. If you keep juggling your life, you will miss the present and regret it later. Remember, “life is too short to live with regrets”.

5. Go With The Flow

Who thought a person like Arjun would be dancing and singing in the streets of Spain. It is very important to let go of your tension and enjoy the moment freely.

6. Learn To Forgive If You Want To Move On

You cannot expect yourself to live in peace without forgiving people who hurt you. By holding grudges, you are only going to hurt yourself.


7. Take A Break

Adult life is tough. There are so many things to look after⁠—job, salary, marriage, family, kids and future planning. But between these struggles, don’t forget to treat yourself once in a while. Pack your bag, book your tickets, and take a break to make yourself happy.

8. Friends Are FLAB

Isn’t that obvious? Kabir, Imran and Arjun taught us how you friends will fight, say mean things about each and other, slap each other if needed, make fun in front of strangers; but above all, you will have each other’s back. They will stick by you no matter what.


This film is one of the most amazing films Bollywood has given us. So, if you still haven’t watched it (which is impossible), WATCH IT NOW. In the end, there’s only one thing left to say,
“Thoda Ghum Hai Sabka Kissa, Thodi Dhoop Hai Sabka Hissa

Aankh Teri Bekaar Hi Nam Hai, Har Pal Ek Naya Mausam Hai

Kyun Tu Aise Pal Khota Hai, Dil Aakhir Tu Kyu Rota Hai”
