DIL DHADAKNE DO: 4/5

     "Dil Dhadakne Do" was very much awaited after watching Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara- the previous film of Zoya Akhtar. How can you think a movie could go bad if it has Zoya and Reema kagti as its writers, Zoya as the director, Farhan Akhtar as the dialogue writer, Javed Akhtar- another dialogue writer for one character i.e. a pet dog, and Aamir Khan giving voice to that dog and over that, Anil Kapoor, Ranveer Singh, Priyanka Chopra, Anushka Sharma and Farhan Akhtar as its 5 star cast out of 6?
   

           DDD is an absolute winner. You may not find many people talking good about it as it isn't for mass audience. Definitely made for multiplex audience and that too of PVR evening shows. Haha! It is about the problems that even super rich people face in their life and how even they aren't satisfied and content with their life. And these aren't small minuscule problems but some big social issues that do not allow them living the way they want to. 

            DDD is a movie about Mehra family where Anil Kapoor is playing father who is tensed because of the heavy losses in business, Shefali Shah who is playing mother and wants to keep her marriage going as she knows about her husband's flamboyant image, Priyanka Chopra as the daughter not happy in her married life in which her parents threw her forcibly and Ranveer Singh as a son who is expected to be the future CEO of the company but he is keen about aviation. 

            DDD very intelligently talks about various issues about gender inequality, how son is considered as family and daughters aren't, how marriages are planned in our Indian society, how woman even after being an entrepreneur couldn't speak her choices and opinions at home because the man have the authority to allow her for anything etc. There's a scene when Rahul Bose aggressively asks Priyanka to leave with him. Another scene where Farhan and Rahul Bose gets into a conversation related to gender equality. I am not disclosing what happened next but these scenes will stay in your mind for a long time as you wish these things start happening in our daily lives too.

           Performances by everyone including these 6 main star casts and all the other characters are superb and excellent except the girl who played Noorie. Anil Kapoor and Ranveer Singh are the highlights of this movie. Whenever they are on the screen, you know something magical is about to happen. Similarly, Priyanka Chopra and Shefali Shah have also played their characters superbly. Farhan Akhtar, Rahul Bose and Anushka Sharma have also justified their roles wonderfully. 

           Unfortunately, the songs aren't very catchy and therefore, you won't hum any of them after leaving the theater. Similarly, climax is too simple considering how the whole movie is scripted and executed. Yes, the very last scene is great but I wished climax to be little more effective like ZNMD. Also, 1st half could have been edited properly and 20-25 minutes could have been easily adjusted. 170 minutes is a long time to sit in a movie these days. But at last, this movie deserves 4 stars out of 5 for the effect it creates in your heart. You want your heart to beat for the choices and desires of your own and not of your parent's or society's. Movie has been successfully in preaching what it wanted to. This is just little less better than ZNMD but it has the same magic, of course. GO FOR IT!

 Thanks.
