Heart Develops a Big Beat on the High Seas- Dil Dhadakne Do Movie Review
The never-ending scope of the movies has led the filmmakers to the sea. Just a few movies have been made by heart and Dil Dhadakne Do is one of those movies. DDD is a beautiful visual story interspersed equally with laughter and introspection. The movie offers a star-studded cruise ride. Dil Dhadakne Do is a story of a dysfunctional Punjabi family who celebrates the parent’s 30th anniversary on a yacht and invites friends and family on a 10-day cruise. It is the celebration of three decades of marriage to the meekly loyal Neelam and what better than to celebrate other than a communal jaunt on a luxury yacht.
High society hi-jinks on the sea! The sea excursion is intended to foster a spirit of togetherness away from hectic life amid mounting the business tensions. The movie stares at Kamal Mehra- a self-made businessman who presides over a successful company Ayka. The Philandering patriarch has two children Ayesha and Kabir. On the yacht, Ayesha and Kabir find the love of their lives. Ayesha meets her first love Sunny Gill, the son of her dad’s trusted manager while her drifter brother falls in love with dancer Farah Ali and engages in a romantic relationship with her. After many troubles and complications, everything gets fine and Mehra family is seen happy in each other’s presence for the very first time on the cruise.
It is the movie that is beautiful to look at. It’s not a typical movie based on love story but so endearing. A family set out on an adventure in search of togetherness. Dil Dhadakne Do is a lavish fix with visual grandeur and extravaganza of the cruise. Heart skips a beat or two when six Bollywood stars are stared embark on a cruise ship. The slow going story of the movie may not skip your heartbeat but the visually appealing views and luxuries and lavishness of the yacht will take your breath away that seemingly opposite to the title of the movie Dil Dhadakne Do. So, hold on your heart and let it develop a big beat instead of on the sea by indulging in the comfort and luxuries of the yacht charter.
