A memorable cruise trip
4 July 2015 | by ahegde3149See all my reviews

Zoya Akhtar's film tackle tackle human relations with great sensitivity and they are so vibrant that you end up liking it even if there are flaws. Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara is one of my Bollywood favorites. While Dil Dhadkane Do falls short of that level of greatness, it certainly a memorable and enjoyable ride. When the millionaire Mehra couples invite their family and friends over a cruise to celebrate their 30th anniversary, the love & trust between friends, families and partners are all put to test. Filled with gossips between different egos,misfits of high class families with grand celebrations and secret business plotting the cruise becomes thrilling, pompous and hilarious at times. With 170 minutes run-time the scripts hits rough patches at times and things may feel like a extravagant drag. The story is also mostly predictable, yet there many moments which will come as a surprise. Thanks to fine performances by the prolific cast that does justice to the vivid characters. My favorites were Shefali Shah as the caring and withstanding Mrs. Mehra and Ranveer Singh as appealing and goalless son of Mehras. Ranveer and Anushka on screen chemistry is simply dazzling and one of the highlights if the film. But one thing that steals the show is Aamir Khan's voice-over as the youngest member of Mehra family, Pluto the dog! The scenes where human relations are narrated through the eyes of Pluto stole the show. The music was energetic, set and costumes extravagant and the camera captures the cruise and Turkish locales gorgeously. Despite some of its shortcomings, Dil Dhadkane Do is one cruise trip that shouldn't be missed.

RATING: [3.5/5]
