. This is a rich chocolate truffle of a movie – extravagant with its emotions, and ending on a sweet note. It’s that term we bandy about so often – feel-good cinema. these are the problems of rich people. Not to say that rich people don’t have real problems – just that in Dil Dhadakne Do,And yet, there are choppy waters in this journey. I’m going with three out of five for Dil Dhadakne Do. It’s easy and breezy, and packed with terrific actors who appear to be enjoying themselves.

Watched #DilDhadakneDo. Loved the film! Very few directors can tackle relationships with such sensitivity as Zoya Akhtar. That's a fact! Zoya juxtaposes humour, drama and emotions with élan in #DilDhadakneDo. The highs & lows of relationships are finely captured on celluloid.Every actor is splendid in #DilDhadakneDo, but the ones who shine the brightest are Anil Kapoor, Priyanka, Ranveer and Shefali Shah.

On the whole, Dil Dhadakne Do is a good entertainer for the multiplex-frequenting audience. It will be liked by the youngsters and the classes more than the mass audiences. Business in the cities will be good on the strength of audiences of multiplexes and premium single-screen cinemas. However, business in smaller centres and in lesser single-screen cinemas will be dull. All in all, it will fetch some profits.

it’s glossy, it’s picturesque, everything on board costs far more than it ought, there are some pretty people, a few of whom make a scene, a family shakes a leg quite memorably, there is some motion sickness and -- for something that ends up precisely and predictably where it started -- it takes a helluva long time going nowhere.Despite its flaws, I find myself looking back at Dil Dhadakne Do and smiling.

Hindi cinema history has seen one big film about "loving your parents". Dil Dhadakne Do is about "hating your parents" and in the process compelling them to change their ways. Yawn! Dil Dhadakne Do is a snoozefest and a surefire cure for insomnia.

Dil Dhadakne Do goes behind the glossy grins of Indian family life, presenting screaming, sobbing dysfunction, heart-ripping extramarital affairs, bitter gender discrimination and heavy parental control. Yet, it has a light hand, not preachy but breezy while sensitively making modern points.With her quirky third, Zoya Akhtar further sharpens her oeuvre - the stylish ensemble tale, where journeys take over destinations. On this ship, a few bolts could be tighter.

It’s feel-good factor gets the time to dissipate, while in keeping with Zoya’s usual insistence on bubbly and bright, it’s characters do not cut and bleed, just burble and weep. By the second half, the film starts to stretch over the horizon. In all this, my heart developed a big beat for Mr and Mrs Mehra, was attentive to Ranveer, skipped a bit for Farhan, and kind of floated over the rest. Yeh dil maange more. Two and a half stars.

There is hardly any takeaway from Dil Dhadakne Do and its characters are not likely to stay with you for long. Also, it would be hard for you and me to identify with the doubts and troubles of the morally ambiguous Mehra family. However, the film has a good starcast and that can dictate the game at the box office.

DIL DHADAKNE DO is a film that is targeted primarily to the multiplex audience and would resonate well with today's youth. On the other hand, the single screen audiences might find it difficult to comprehend the film's proceedings. On the whole, if you want to understand the nitty-gritty's (read 'the do's and don'ts) of a complex family relationship, then, do yourself and your family a favour by taking them to meet the Mehras this weekend. In simple words, DIL DHADAKNE DO makes for a decent watch.

This is a classic example of how when a pertinent, contemporary story meets a stellar star cast and near perfect direction, it results in a wholesome film good enough to be taken home to mum. Even while holding our hands to take us through some of the most interesting parts of the world, Zoya Akhtar sometimes subtly and at times with a bulldozer aggression drives home certain bitter truths typical of most Indian families, but those we choose to avert our collective gazes from.

Dil Dhadakne Do is not everyone’s cup of tea. It is a high society drama that may tackle regular family issues too but may not suffice as entertainment for all. I am going with a 3/5 for this niche family drama. 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.

    Parents, O Parents! A long family affair! [3.5/5]

    An ideal family is a myth. Issues like gender discrimination, forceful implementations of the patriarchy power, constant manipulations over fake morality, compromises for the sake of saving relationships and a flair of hypocrisy even in the most sober looking character do lie in every family. It’s only a matter of time to experience what will surface and when. A dysfunctional family as they call it is nothing
    but an elaborated term for any family out in this world. Zoya Akhtar's DIL DHADAKNE DO offers you a chance for a paid visit to one of these 'dysfunctional' families.

    Anil Kapoor plays the ‘self-made’ millionaire Mehra, who’s celebrating his 30th marriage anniversary with Mrs. Mehra [Shefali Shah] on a cruise. The daughter Mehra [Priyanka Chopra] losing her surname now to her husband’s after marriage is irked with the invitation-card not carrying her name as a family-member. The son Mehra [Ranveer Singh] is trying his hard to fit in his father’s shoes. Along with some close friends and relatives, Mehras are out on loose on the cruise. Everything looks perfectly planned, well-designed, glossy, shiny and desirable until the real issues within the family start melting down all the plastics on the most beautiful looking faces on earth. The daughter Mehra wants to move in life and is now asking for a divorce. The son Mehra is blackmailed emotionally to marry the daughter of one of the possible business partners. The catch for the son Mehra is a private jet he finds his true love in. Parents, O parents!

    Zoya Akhtar with Reema Kagti presents to you a gorgeous looking family you might wish to have in your next life but with the short and sour problems chances are you’re already facing in this very life. Who haven’t been preached all his life hearing the same-old struggle-story of his father from the horse’s mouth? Do mothers ever fail in ‘baby-ing’ the son even if he’s started dating hot babes? And then, there is this epic scheming side of the parents who are alive only to see their sons/daughters getting married. The best part is the Zoya-Reema duo doesn’t try to sink you in the murkiness of the situations but saves you with the quirk in dialogues and a flasthe hy wit in the nature of the characters. Despite a certain kind of dreariness in the plot and the slacken off duration, film manages to keep you smiling for the most parts.

    With a picturesque star-cast that looks like coming to a special edition magazine cover photo-shoot, DIL DHADKANE DO never actually has a dull frame. Even the brigade of supporting actors like Divya Seth Shah, Parmeet Sethi, Vandana Sajnani, Ridhima Sud, Vikrant Massey and Manoj Pahwa charmingly finds its place to rise and shine. Also Farhan, Priyanka, Rahul Bose and Anushka are branded names to come up with performances you can’t crib about but eventually DIL DHADAKNE DO finds its acting-giants in Anil Kapoor, Ranveer Singh and Shefali Shah. All of these three names have rediscovered themselves in their own way. Anil Kapoor’s performance as a suave, money-driven, self-centered, crude, controlling and calculative patriarch is terrific. Ranveer Singh surprises as well. Probably for the first time, he has brought something called subtly in his performance and it’s totally rewarding. Move over his ‘ever ready’ charged up energy assurance, here is an actor a lot more yet to be explored. Shefali Shah is brilliant and makes you wonder why Bollywood hasn’t given her yet what she deserves. Well done, Ma’am!

    To conclude, DIL DHADAKNE DO suffers two major slipups. One being the length of the film of course and the other is the narration given by none other than Aamir Khan lending his voice to the younger Mehra of the family; a dog! Yes, you heard it right. Now, this can be an ‘Aww’ moment for puppy-loving beauties but for the film, it does throw a fit of boredom on you. Watch out for some real ‘surprising’ performances and dialogue-driven humor! [3.5/5]

    1. @gaurav i am very disappointing on your reviews all character a and seen are predictable

  2. Read full review at justbollywood.in

  3. Finally Bollywood comes up with a much needed dysfunctional family story which is new in itself for Bollywood and a perfect answer to Hollywood's dysfunctional family stories. Power packed performances. funny yet realistic.. good thing i liked is it was to show richness it not over styled like karan johar's high class Punjabi family. it shot on a cruise still movie is all about the story rather than showing u places n ship n songs and u still love it which shows how good the story is. Songs could have bee little better. Still one of the finest entertainer for the year. Being first of its kind dysfunctional family movie and for the super start cast it deserves to been seen and appreciated.. I would rate it 4/5.. Must watch

  4. My review:

  5. half of the movie was a snooze-fest.... it's a worthy movie....thoroughly enjoyed my sleep in the multiplex. To be honest, there were few hilarious moments in the movie...but FEW!

  6. Movie is super flop one, try to make hit artificially on social media

  7. Well Zoya Akhtar once again proved women's power by making a movie like "D3".The movie is a good family entertainer.My rating to this movie will be 3.5 stars.
