Film critic Anupama Chopra says, like a typical Indian family what bothers the Mehras most is "Log kya kahenge?". But, she finds the set up in the first half to be "dramatically inert to the point of being boring." She rated the movie three and a half stars and recommended it as a much watch
The team of Dil Dhadakne Do spoke to NDTV about the film's USP. Ranveer Singh and Anushka Sharma dwelled at some length on their 'on-screen' chemistry. Zoya and Farhan Akhtar talked about the similarities between the film's leading family, the Mehras and the Akhtars. Shefali Shah revealed that the humour was very 'wicked and tongue-in-cheek'. There was also a revelation about their canine co-star Pluto, the film's 'wisest' Mehra.
In an exclusive conversation with NDTV, Ranveer Singh and Anushka Sharma, Dil Dhadakne Do's Kabir Mehra and Farah Ali, share their experiences of working together. Anushka says,"Ranveer just wants to prove to me that I have the best on-screen chemistry with him." Ranveer promptly responds, "Koi Shak?"
Actor Ranveer Singh had earlier refused the film as the makers were not ready to take his hairdresser along with him for the shoot.
