Zoya and Farhan Akhtar have given us a taste of Indie cinema packaged in a shiny Bolly-wrapper more than once. Take, for instance, Dil Chahata Hai, Luck By Chance, Zindagi Na Milege Dobara, and most recently the short film in Bombay Talkies. Seeing yet another indie-bolly-flick from this sibling duo with its offbeat theme – Punjabi dysfunction at sea is offbeat! – doesn’t surprise me.
I’d venture forth and say that a dysfunctional Punjabi family (with kutta) on a cruise is worth one watch at least. From what I can see in that poster, the movie does pique my curiosity. After all, how often do you see Bollywood on a cruise? And full marks for giving us Sheefali Shah and Anil Kapoor as the Punjabi mum and dad! Clearly Anupam and Kirron Kher were starting to get a bit annoying.
For a creative, fresh, and unique vibe, Dil Dhadakne Do is making my heart beat just a little bit faster. Here’s hoping the story is just as innovative.
Till we meet for a review.
