3 Good

Dil Dhadakne Do

The good things:

- Visuals of Mediterranean cities, cruise, sea etc - Some good performances by Anil Kapoor, Shefali, Anushka and Priyanka

What didn't work:

- Story: When you make a film about the riches, the only to way to make it resonate with the not-so-riches is by showing primal, human limitations or challenges or problems. Not by highlighting the problems which are a function of them being rich at the first place - threat to status in the society, priority to money making over family etc. We have enough of our own problems to deal with, thank you!

- Lackluster screenplay: Narrating a film like this from a dog's point of view makes it look silly from the word go. Pushing in a song in the second half when you should be having the audience gripped in attention. Less than convincing character arcs.

- Too many characters: Adding more characters just for the sake of it does not compensate for a lame script. It just puts pressure on the audience to keep a track of who's who and how they even relate to the main story.

All in all, it looks and feels like a film made by the riches for the riches, with no clue about the real problems of the world. If you have money to throw, go with family. If you have just got a bonus, go as a couple. If you are not so well off, wait for it to hit the TV screen, and watch alone, with headphones on.
