Dil Dhadakne Do is a 2015 Indian romantic drama film directed by Zoya Akhtar and produced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani. The film features an ensemble cast that includes Anil Kapoor, Shefali Shah, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Ranveer Singh, Anushka Sharma, and Farhan Akhtar. The film revolves around a dysfunctional Punjabi family who go on a cruise trip.

The film starts with Kamal Mehra (Anil Kapoor), a wealthy businessman, celebrating his 30 years of marriage with his wife, Neelam (Shefali Shah). The couple is seen posing for a family photograph with their children, Ayesha (Priyanka Chopra Jonas), and Kabir (Ranveer Singh). However, as the initial credit rolls, it’s immediately apparent that this is not a happy family.

Kamal is shown in the opening scenes, lying in bed with his wife next to him, scrolling through pictures of women on his phone, while Neelam sullenly peruses home decor magazines. Their children resent them — Ayesha wants to divorce her husband, Manav, because he’s disrespectful to her and her family and Kabir, who’s a carefree artist, feels that Kamal forces him to take up the family business.

To celebrate their 30th anniversary, Kamal and Neelam invite their friends and family on a luxury cruise to Turkey and Greece. The trip becomes a catalyst for addressing long-standing issues within the family as the characters confront their fears, insecurities, and high expectations.

Ayesha meets Sunny (Farhan Akhtar), a journalist, and discusses her marriage problems with him. She hopes to find a solution to her dilemma. Kabir, on the other hand, falls for Farah (Anushka Sharma), a dancer on the cruise, but her blunt and direct nature doesn’t make it easy for him to pursue her. Meanwhile, Kamal tries to maintain his wealthy persona in front of his friends, even if it means putting his family in difficult situations.

As the trip progresses, relationships are tested, secrets are revealed, and the characters finally confront their deepest emotions. The film captures the intricacies of family dynamics and the role of social status in Indian society.

As a movie, Dil Dhadakne Do is visually stunning, featuring breathtaking locations combined with high-end fashion and sophisticated cinematography. The film has a compelling storyline and cleverly injects humor into serious topics. The dialogue is crisp, engaging, and realistic, and the cast delivers brilliant performances that make the characters relatable and compelling.

One of the movie’s main themes is the plight of women in a patriarchal society. Ayesha is struggling to break free from an unhappy marriage as she is expected to put up with the challenges of a patriarchal family. Similarly, Farah, the cruise dancer, speaks out against misogyny in entertainment, telling Kabir that female performers are just seen as a distraction for the male audience. The movie handles these themes deftly and with sensitivity.

The music of Dil Dhadakne Do is by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, with lyrics by Javed Akhtar. The movie has some unforgettable, foot-tapping tunes, including the title track “Dil Dhadakne Do,” “Gallan Goodiyaan,” and “Pehli Baar.”

Overall, Dil Dhadakne Do is a heartwarming family drama that is well-written, well-acted and has a unique perspective. The movie teaches us about the importance of family, love, and acceptance in today’s society. It’s a must-watch for anyone who is a fan of good storytelling, impeccable performances, and breathtaking locations.

Dil Dhadakne Do is a 2015 drama with a runtime of 2 hours and 51 minutes. It has received mostly positive reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 7.0.
