Here are 10 reasons why Dil Dhadakne Do is perfect for this weekend
1. Star-studded Cast!
The film has an eclectic cast starring Anil Kapoor, Ranveer Singh, Farhan Akhtar, Priyanka Chopra, Anushka Sharma and Shefali Shah and the film has power packed performances in store for audiences. Given that such heavyweight names have all come together for one film in itself has raised the bar for DDD.
2. Zoya’s magic again!
In 2011, she directed the critically and commercially successful film Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara and won her Filmfare Award for Best Director. The audiences loved ZNMD and cannot wait for the upcoming DDD to blow away their minds.
3. The cruise, the locations!
The film is about a dysfunctional Punjabi family that goes on a cruise to celebrate Anil Kapoor & Shefali Shah’s (aka Mr. & Mrs. Mehra’s) 30th wedding anniversary. The film is shot beautifully across the Mediterranean Sea. The team has extensively shot in Spain, Italy France, Tunisia and Turkey. Audiences have experienced a sneak peek into the film through the trailers and songs which has caught their imagination and hooked them intently.
4. B-town goes Gaga over DDD!
There was a special screening of star-studded film Dil Dhadakne Do held for Bollywood celebrities in Mumbai and after watching the film, these celebrities are going berserk! This is what our Bollywood celebrities have to say about the film-
Karan Johar: My mother just called to say that #DilDhadakneDo is the best film she has seen in years! You go ZOYA! Can’t wait to see it!
Amitabh Bachchan: Silences in a film allow the audience to enter the mind of the actor… rare… DDD does that in abundance! Well done Zoya!
Arjun Kapoor?: I feel on top of the world after watchin #DilDhadakneDo @ritesh_sid pls convince Zoya to make more films more often!
Shabana Azmi: Phone hasn’t stopped buzzing with overwhelming responses since previews of #DilDhadkneDo started. Excited and nervous. Standard reaction!
5. The buzz!
The film has created a wave on social media since it went on floors. It continues to create conversations and news. The cast members of the film have been sharing pictures and posting interesting videos from the sets and even now when they meet during the promotions of the film. This has increased the intrigue and interest of the audience two folds.
6. Ranveer- Anushka after a long time!
After winning hearts with their sizzling performances in Band Baaja Baaraat & Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl, ex-couple Anushka Sharma & Ranveer Singh are all set to repeat history with DDD. Reportedly, there is a long and intense kissing scene featuring Anushka & Ranveer in DDD.Their crackling chemistry in song ‘Pehli baar ’is already the talk of the town and looks like their fans are in for much more in the film.
7. Cool, urban flavor!
The style quotient of the film is very high. Everyone in the film has a unique character driven sense of style. While successful businesswoman Ayesha, played by Priyanka Chopra, has her own style, Anushka Sharma has an entirely contrasting style sense as she plays a dancer on the ship. Anil Kapoor is playing his age for the first time and Ranveer Singh sports a cool style.
8. Punjabi Tadka!
DDD is an urban family drama revolving around a dysfunctional Punjabi family- The Mehras. Who does not like the loud Punjabi family and their tactics in Bollywood films! Though the family has four humans dealing with their problems, there is one more character. The Mehra family’s pet dog, Pluto Mehra. It will be interesting to see what this little guy will do in the film.
9. The bonhomie between two leading ladies of Bollywood!
And we are not even talking about the on-screen comfort between Anushka Sharma and Priyanka Chopra. We are talking about the real life comradery between the two actresses and how they got along like a house on fire during the shoot of the film. In these times of cut-throat competition and insecurities, this picture gives a hint of the madness that the film has in store for its viewers.
10. Foot-tapping music!
The Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy trio has always provided a rocking soundtrack for all of Farhan’s films and just the trailer is enough to send our ears into a frenzy! The songs are already a huge hit. They are peppy and full of life. From the jazzy number ‘Girls like to swing’ to the peppy ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’ title song, you cannot help but match your feet with the beats of the songs.
These are just a few of the reasons and we are sure that you will find a lot more reasons to watch Dil Dhadakne Do once you see the trailer for yourself!
