A Well-Made & Well-Acted Film!
5 June 2015 | by namashi_1See all my reviews

Zoya Akhtar's 'Dil Dhadakne Do' is A Well-Made & Well-Acted Film, although its not without its share of problems. Its overtly long & also not always sharp, and yet it gives us moments of pure emotion & the performances are stellar by its solid ensemble.

'Dil Dhadakne Do' Synopsis: A dysfunctional Punjabi family go on a cruise, where they egos & problems clash. Chaos Follows...

'Dil Dhadakne Do' tells the tale of a dysfunctional Punjabi family, with loads of humor & emotion. Akhtar & Reema Kagti's multi-plotted Screenplay is definitely lengthy & concentrates on too many characters, which at times acts as a deterrent, but overall, the madness works for the most of it. The primary characters are interestingly diverse & their on-going disagreements on issues, are fun to watch. While the first-hour is slowly paced & also loose, the second-hour is emotionally heavy. However, the usage of narration in the form of a dog, is a bit too much. Although Aamir Khan nails it in the voice-over, in terms of Writing, it seems as a lazy move. Nevertheless, The Screenplay is fairly decent. A Special Mention for the wonderful dialogue.

Akhtar's Direction is excellent & she deserves credit for churning out such terrific performances from its large ensemble cast. After 'Luck by Chance' & 'Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara', she has emerged with another impressive fare with 'Dil Dhadakne Do'. Carlos Catalan's Cinematography is stunning. Each & Every Moment has been captured beautifully. Editing is slightly loose, as the film goes on for nearly 3 hours! Some trimming, especially in the first-hour, was needed! Art & Costume Design are fabulous. Music by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy is energetic.

Performance-Wise: Every Actor delivers in 'Dil Dhadakne Do'. Anil Kapoor takes the lead, enacting the money-minded businessman with effortless ease. Shefali Shah as his Wife, is extraordinary. She's so natural all through. As their children, Priyanka Chopra displays sincerity as a women torn between a shaky marriage & society issues. Ranveer Singh, on the other-hand, is simply awesome as the young blood who has a passion for flying. Ranveer also contributes to the film's funniest & best bits. Anushka Sharma lends adequate support as Ranveer's lady-love, while Farhan Akhtar is nicely restrained as Priyanka's ex-flame. Rahul Bose as Priyanka's annoying husband, is in super form, yet again! Zarina Wahab leaves a mark.

On the whole, 'Dil Dhadakne Do' isn't enjoyable entirely, but its still got merit & is superbly acted! Go, watch it!
