Story: Kamal Mehra (Anil Kapoor) and his wife Neelam (Shefali Shah), one of the most influential families from Delhi, plan a cruise trip to Europe to celebrate their 30th wedding anniversary and invite their relatives and friends for the same.To the world, they paint a rosy picture. But in reality, things are far different. The happy Mehra family is just a mirage. Kamal is heading to bankruptcy with his company AYKA and can hardly withstand his wife. Their daughter, Ayesha's (Priyanka Chopra) marriage is on rocks. Things further get complicated when her ex beau and best friend Sunny Gill (Farhan Akhtar) enters the picture. Their son, Kabir (Ranveer Singh) is supposed to marry a girl from a wealthy family to save the Mehra's sinking business. Instead he falls for a free-spirited Farah Ali (Anushka Sharma) who works as an entertainer on the cruise. Will this dysfunctional family sink or swim safely to the shores forms the plot of the film.


Performance: Anil Kapoor as the self-made, suave businessman is a complete show-stealer! The actor is like that bottle of old wine which just seems to be getting better with age. He pulls off the portrayal of Mr Mehra with such ease. Ranveer Singh with his boyish charms manages to bring a smile on your face everytime he appears on-screen. A bundle of energy, he adds the right comic elements when required. Watch out for the scene where he confronts his parents! Priyanka Chopra is an absolute stunner. In fact, she and Ranveer are completely adorable as siblings. Shefali Shah is brilliant in her role and has some crucial scenes where she completely owns it. Farhan Akhtar is an absolute delight to watch. Anushka Sharma and Rahul Bose are good in their parts. The supporting cast of Ridhima Sud, Vikrant Massey and Zarina Wahab are well suited for their roles. And of course a huge shout-out for Aamir Khan too, the surprise package of the film!


Direction: Zoya Akhtar's fascination for travel stories continues with 'Dil Dhadakne Do'. Together with Reema Kagti, she has penned down yet another tale with some life-lessons for the viewers. An eye-opener, it holds a mirror to the hypocrisy that still exists in certain Indian households irrespective of the class. However, the film has a more urban appeal due to its high style quotient. The dialogues written by Farhan Akhtar are witty and crisp. Carlos Catalan's cinematography is a pure visual treat for the eyes. Don't be surprised if France, Spain, Tunisia, Italy and Turkey end up in your to-travel list!


Combo-on-Offer: Humour + Emotions + Drama


Verdict: We give the film thunderous Claps for Anil Kapoor and Ranveer Singh's power-packed performances, dialogues and picturesque locations.
