It’s like watching paint dry… only, inside a palace
Baradwaj Rangan, BaradwajRangan
If this film looks like an entertaining, escapist film at the outset, it is, but it is also much deeper than that. Watch it for sure
It’s easy and breezy, and packed with terrific actors who appear to be enjoying themselves
Rajeev Masand, Rajeev Masand
Dil Dhadakne Do' is like having a Pani Puri in a five star hotel, which is totally healthy and looks visually appealing, lacking a bit over the spices.
Divya Solgama, Moviez Adda
Yawn! Dil Dhadakne Do is a snoozefest and a surefire cure for insomnia
What is also commendable is the fact that the plot, the dialogues and the actors devise the perfect symphony
Rummana Ahmed, Yahoo India
Dil Dhadakne Do unravels like an entire season of soap opera condensed into a nearly three-hour movie

Dil Dhadakne Do is like a really long episode of Sarabhai Vs Sarabhai where Satish Shah doesn’t show up
Raja Sen, REDIFF
Apart from the spectacular performances and stunning locations ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’ has its moments of fun, laughter, drama, tears and romance. So go on, plunge in.

Dil Dhadakne Do - All Reviews

Anil Kapoor is decent as a responsible father and Shefali Shah provided good support. It was Ranveer Singh and Priyanka Chopra, who are the strongest subjects of the film and who also has an every scope to draw the audience, with their star image. They are again terrific in this flick too. Specially, Ranveer’s dialogue delivery and freaking style, deserve a huge applause.
Aravind, Andhra & Telangana Wishesh
Though it lacks the ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’ punch, Zoya Akhtar’s ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’ is a fun cruise
Having said that, DDD is great timepass, and it’s a beautiful, visual story interspersed equally with laughter & introspection. Watch it for the family & the truism of dysfunctional relationships. You will be entertained.

Dil Dhadakne Do carries depth and fun throughout. Don't miss it.
India TV News
Like Zoya Akhtar’s previous film Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, Dil Dhadakne Do is also about a trip that changes the travellers’ perspective towards life.
But these are fleeting clouds on an otherwise beautiful sea, hosting a cruise which hilariously combines butter chicken with bruschetta while searching beyond Bollywood's emotional Botox for a family's warts - and its heart.

Thumbs Down: Ending, duration
rachnasrivastava, Chirtamala
This high society family drama where there is no place for emotions is super entertaining and is a must watch. A high energy movie that should not be missed, so book your tickets fast!
Priyanka Prasad, Filmi Beat
This is a classic example of how when a pertinent, contemporary story (Reema Kagti, Zoya Akhtar) meets a stellar star cast and near perfect direction (Zoya Akhtar), it results in a wholesome film good enough to be taken home to mum.
Watch it for the ensemble cast. And of course, Ranveer-Anushka.
Ananya Bhattacharya, India Today
Dil Dhadakne Do movie evolves around a dysfunctional Punjabi family on a cruise trip. In an Interview Ranveer Singh said, "His name is Kabir, he was born
Filmi Beat
Dil Dhadakne Do is not everyone’s cup of tea. It is a high society drama that may tackle regular family issues too but may not suffice as entertainment for all
Surabhi Redkar, Koi Moi
Dil Dhadakne Do might be a flawed family comedy-drama, but the flawed family at its center is so relatable and the issues that it confronts are so relevant, that the film will end up being a fond if bittersweet memory.

Every step falls in place! DIL DHADKANE DO may not find its audience with the typical, commercial, Bollywood masala filmgoers, but with the metros and the urban crowd, it's sure to be a monster hit. Go on, let your heart beat!
Martin D'Souza, Glam Sham
DDD would've been a lot of fun had it been shorter, crisper and less indulgent.
Sarita A Tanwar, DNA India
It’s exotic, but not rejuvenating.
Gayatri Gauri, First Post
For that alone, its razor sharp wit and its bubbly charm which masks quite a few pertinent issues in society, Dil Dhadakne Do is worth your while and the perfect weekend watch. Thank you Zoya for not letting us down!
Jay Mamtora, Bolly Brit
Watch 'Dil Dhadakne Do' for the beauty of it rather than the story.
Dil Dhadakne Do certainly lacks a universal appeal, and while it will best be appreciated by the Anglophone urban audience, anyone who is not particularly uninterested in rich people's problems can afford to give it a try.
Murtaza Ali, A Potpourri of Vestiges
But from what we get to see, chances are, this one could do for Istanbul what Dil Chahta Hai did for Goa.
Kunal Guha, Mumbai Mirror
This is Akhtar’s weakest film yet, because she tries to tell too many stories at once and tells none entirely.
They also offer slice of life but with them it is the slice of a buttered toast.
Anuj Kumar, The Hindu
Ranveer, Priyanka steal the show in this tissue-thin story full of flat characters
Deepanjana Pal, First Post
‘Dil Dhadakne Do’ is a spirited drama about a rich family in which people are not in a position to enjoy the simple emotions of life
DDD manages to state a point which many Indian kids struggle to explain to their parents – that every relation in addition to love also needs space to grow. In spite of the faults, DDD will definitely manage to bring a smile to your face when you walk out of the theatre. Do watch.
Prateeksha Khot, BollySpice
Ranveer and Priyanka's Dil Dhadakne Do is subtle, classy and hilarious
Films of India
If you ignore the dragged out and lengthy first half, you will surely enjoy this cruise which is a lot of fun.

जिंदगी न मिलेगी दोबारा' से फीकी है 'दिल धड़कने दो'
On the whole, Dil Dhadakne Do is a good entertainer for the multiplex-frequenting audience.

Priyanka Chopra and Anil Kapoor save this ship from sinking faster than the Titanic!
Bollywood Life
Dil Dhadakne Do' is a gorgeously shot overstuffed eager to please family drama that excels more in acting and less on story and storytelling.
Vishal Verma, India Glitz
It is very easy to get carried away when your star cast is filled with such gems. However, the director has done a great job handling every character. Ranveer Singh’s comic timing and witty dialogues keep you entertained throughout the film. Special mention to Pluto Mehra. Believe it or not, the dog is the only character that connects with you till the end. A little stretched and dragging, the movie could have done better if the redundant parts were taken out. Overall, you should watch this movie at least once!
Vishal Kadam, BookMyShow
DIL DHADAKANE DO Is Combination Of Style And Usual Entertainment Elements
DDD is essentially about the Mehras - Kamal (Kapoor), Neelam (Chaya), Kabir (Singh) and Ayesha (Chopra), an ultra-rich Delhite family out celebrating the 30th marriage anniversary of the parental unit
Amodini, Planet Bollywood
On the whole, if you want to understand the nitty-gritty's (read 'the do's and don'ts) of a complex family relationship, then, do yourself and your family a favour by taking them to meet the Mehras this weekend. In simple words, DIL DHADAKNE DO makes for a decent watch.
