Zoya Akhtar is a maverick filmmaker. Her debut Luck By Chance might not have set the box office on fire, but the inward look at Bollywood has aged really well. She followed that up with Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, a heartwarming tale of friendship and travel that felt like a refresh button on her brother’s modern classic Dil Chahta Hai.
Apart from her track record, here’s why we’re booking ahead for Dil Dhadakne Do!
Anil Kapoor’s salt-and-pepper hair make him a truly dapper daddy!
They’ve got the sibling rivalry/love equation pat down. Priyanka Chopra plays a sister seeking a divorce…
…To brother Ranveer Singh, who doesn’t want to marry until he gets a plane.
Anushka Sharma has sizzling chemistry with Ranveer Singh AGAIN!
While Farhan Akhtar plays himself in his sister’s film AGAIN!
Zoya Akhtar gets travel films.
This time, it’s set aboard a gorgeous ship!
Speaking of talent, Shefali Shah plays a firecracker of a mother.
The dialogues are on target (unlike your group project or sales report).
It’s about “delicate” issues like marriage and family, which merit more discussion.
Let us know your reasons for watching the film (which releases this Friday) in the comments’ section below! 😉
