Dil Dhadkne Do

If you take fermented actors like Hrithik, Farhan & Abhay, distil their talents in the creative stills of Reema Kagti & Zoya Akhtar & put them in the lyrical cask of Javed Akthar, you get a brilliantly blended Zoya experience called Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. And now take this ‘experience’ & add sugar-like Ranveer Singh, lemon-like-sour Anil Kapoor & a dash of interesting flavour like Shefali Shah. That’s right! you get a “Zoya Sour”; commonly known as Dil Dhadkne Do. You don’t compare these two because they have their own place in the party. Ranveer Singh is like that student who is expected to score 90% & does it deftly. But its the old stager Shefali Shah who ushers a germane feel in the plot & that too in a neat organic mode. The plot does seem to ‘skid’ a bit & rushes through some “favourable plugins”. For eg, a flashback sequence between Anil Kapoor & Farhan OR Farhan & Priyanka Chopra would have propelled even more relevant emotions & would’ve expanded the cultural horizon of the Mehras for the audience. That being said, the presence of the looking-in-charge Farhan Akhtar & the naturally crafted comic timing of Anil Kapoor have overridden the gaps. The indispensable Zoya-Reema/Farhan-Ritesh combination might just have “over-invested” a bit but that does not take away the reason for these splendid film-makers to celebrate a magnificent production. With a feel-good storyline, innate direction & Carlos Catalan’s visually appealing feat, let your heart sail with Dil Dhadkne Do!
