Review: Dil Dhadakne Do

Dil Dhadakne Do

  Dil Dhadakne Do

Genre: Romance, Comedy, Drama
Duration: 170 minutes
India Release Date: 5th June 2015.

Plot:
On a cruise to celebrate their parents’ 30th wedding anniversary, a brother and
sister deal with the impact of family considerations on their romantic lives.

Review: Skip this Royal Cruise tour as it does not deliver what it’s promised to.
The glossy sitcom is waste of time barring few dialogues & performances (Anushka,
Ranveer and Kapoor).

Overall: Zoya Akhtar’s film is too repeatative and this melodrama does not provide
any insights. Film is loaded with screams, extra-marital affairs, dominating control
on children etc etc. Loaded with ensemble cast, film delivers the heart attack rather heart beats (as the movie theme says)...
