Rating for the movie Dil Dhadakne Do is 3 out of 5. (Three Star)
Director: Zoya Akhtar
Star Cast: Farhan Akhtar, Ranveer Singh, Priyanka Chopra, Anushka Sharma, Anil Kapoor, Shefali Shah
Positive: The Mehra’s are classy with their tastes and it is fun to unlearn the warped problems of this dysfunctional family. The performances are good enough to sail this cruise.
Negative: A not-so-perfect plot that drags for two and a half hours with not one chart buster to enjoy.
Watch or Not?: Dil Dhadakne Do is not a massy film and that is where it may lose a good chunk of its audience. The film has a distinctive approach towards familial bonds and that may not go well with everyone.
The story mainly turns around the Mehra family. A dysfunctional relations helmed by Kamal (Anil Kapoor) whose family business is going under big loss and in order to lift public reliability in his company AiKa, he and his wife, Neelam (Shefali) organize a cruise trip and invite all their rich buddies.
Their daughter, Ayesha (Priyanka Chopra) who runs a winning company, an online travel gateway, organizes the whole trip but is not given credit for by her parents. Their son, Kabir (Ranveer Singh) wants to be a pilot but the bossy parents insist he take over the family business.
