First thing first, Dil Dhadakne Do is no Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. Zoya Akhtar explored a lively and energetic road movie giving a beautiful view of Spain to Indian audiences in her previous outing that followed a critically acclaimed movie Luck By Chance. When it comes to Dil Dhadakne Do, Zoya has been successful in getting a long list of ensemble star cast but the filmy experience is just watchable and above average and nowhere close to the two films that are mentioned above.
DDD at no point sinks or stoop to a low level but the almost three hour cruise in a luxury ship of family drama exploring a dysfunctional family’s efforts to cover up the path holes in their life turns out to be too much of extravagance, extramarital and stuffs leaving the content without much of a substance.
The Mehras, Kamal and Neelam (Anil Kapoor and Shefali Shah) with a hidden agenda decide to celebrate their thirtieth wedding anniversary in a cruise and for this grand trip, they invite their friends as well as foes in their business circle. For company, the Mehras have their son Kabeer (Ranveer Singh) and Aisha (Priyanka Chopra). Also on board are son in law (Rahul Bose) and his mother played by Zareena Wahaab. The film basically cover all the drama that unfold in the luxurious cruise on how the relationship of the stakeholders of Mehra family settle down for the best.
The film is watchable and has moments here and there to make the experience smooth. Initial time to get things settled is tad too long and hence we have a first half that doesn’t offer much but the second half has enough drama in it that at least take the film forward without much of a disappointment. What we see more is some extravagant and hi fi life style of the upper class that has been given more prominence than the plot itself.
As far as performances are concerned, this is one area the film has done quite well. No surprises here as the makers had with them some good actors who could solidly perform the characters entrusted to them. Anil Kapoor is one actor who have not disappointed me before and the character of Kamal Mehra was safe in his hands. Shefali Shah as his better half also lived up to her billing.
Ranveer Singh, Priyanka Chopra, Anushka Sharma, Rahul Bose, Zareena Wahaab and Vikrant Massey and a long line up of actors form part of DDD and all of them performed really good. One cannot forget the extended cameo played by Farhaan Akhtar.
Cinematography was nicely handled while cuts could have been better by chopping some unwanted scenes to make the film a shorter one from the current running time. Coming to the music scene, I was not that impressed with Shankar Ehsan Loy this time. Overall, Dil Dhadakne Do is a pretty decent one with cool glossy looks and feel and the rating is three out of five.
