Dil Bechara is an emotional and romantic drama in the Hindi language. It is an adaptation of John Green’s 2012 novel The Fault in Our Stars, which was also adapted into an English Hollywood film.
Dil Bechara centres on two young seriously ill patients, a girl and a boy, both afflicted with cancer. The two meet at a get together of a cancer support group. Gradually, their mutual hobbies and interests bring them together, and they fall in love.
The boy’s cancer turns terminal, but before he dies, he leaves the girl with hope and a will to live. The story is about hope, the joy of living and finding happiness in small things. It is also about giving up petty and mean behaviour, and being kind and giving – because you only live once.
