Dil Dhadakne Do

Some pretentious Delhi-ites (and every other city-ites) are about to burn up in their PJs. Zoya sarcastically pokes into all the ‘problems of the richie richs’ and peels away layers and layers of their fake lives. Masked emotions are uncovered scene by scene until they get to a raw family screaming and unveiling match which is one of the many very honest scenes in the movie. Lots of spades are being called spades which is hopefully going to be a balancing force to the “Log Kya Kahenge” in Indian society soon. If you can ignore the futile attempt at comedy during the last 10 minutes you’ll find yourself entertained by this uber rich Punjabi family event narrated through a dog’s perspective. Certainly no Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara but you’ll be left star-struck with good performances by everyone, especially Anil Kapoor and Shefali Shah, and some really nice camera work. (6/10)

  1. They sure were great but the magic of a ZNMD was missing. There were quite a few stories happening at the same time which didn’t allow any single one to be treated in depth and the songs were plain boring. Let alone the entire lifeboat episode in the end.
