The excruciating wait finally ended last night, as we were treated to the first trailer for Dil Dhadakne Do. Though highly-anticipated trailers tend to disappoint, we’re glad to say that this is the rare exception to the rule!
A roller-coaster ride from start to finish, the first look gives us a glimpse into the life of a dysfunctional Punjabi family – one that we can all relate to. Kamal (Anil Kapoor) and Neelam Mehra (Shefali Shah) have a reputation to maintain… Which is a tad difficult because of their son who refuses to settle down (Ranveer Singh), and the daughter who wants a divorce (Priyanka Chopra). What happens when the family comes together on a luxury cruise? Secrets are unveiled, confessions are made and relationships change forever. Oh, and don’t forget the awkward moments!
The trailer is equal parts craziness, happiness and sincerity. But what makes it even better? Just how relatable it is. From overly concerned parents and snarky "aunties" to sweet sibling moments, there’s something everyone can relate to!
Ensemble films can make it difficult to connect to any of the characters. But if there’s one filmmaker in Bollywood who knows how to make the most of an ensemble cast, it’s Zoya Akhtar! We loved Luck By Chance and Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, and it looks like Dil Dhadakne Do is all set to follow in their shoes.
As for the cast? Well, we think it’s safe to say that this isn’t an ensemble that will disappoint. Between Anil Kapoor, Shefali Shah, Farhan Akhtar, Ranveer Singh, Priyanka Chopra and Anushka Sharma, we think they’ve got the acting bit covered!
We were already excited for the release of Dil Dhadakne Do, and this trailer has certainly piqued our interest! Let the countdown to June 5 begin! Until then, watch the trailer here, if you haven’t already:
