The setting is dreamy: a super rich family on an ultra-luxurious cruise trip. Yet, all the luxe and gloss can’t hide the cracks in the relationships. When the trailer of much-awaited Dil Dhadakne Do (DDD), directed by Zoya Akhtar, played out on a big screen, Mumbai’s Lightbox theatre, for the first time on Wednesday evening, it was impossible not to be overwhelmed by its sheer scale. The top-view of the cruise line with expansive ocean as the backdrop, stunning foreign locales and beautiful people in their stylish best make for compelling visuals. But scratch the surface, and you find a dysfunctional family trying hard to act normal to the world.

Let’s talk about the last scene of the trailer first. An agitated Ranveer Singh (Kabir Mehra) questions his family members — father Anil Kapoor (Kamal Mehra), mother Shefalee Shah (Neelam Shah) and sister Priyanka Chopra — why they always talk about superficial things and never address the real issues? Irritated with him, when Shefali Shah asks him to spell out what he wants to discuss, an awkward silence follows. Bewildered, they look at each other. Even Singh, who was raving and yelling his lungs out seconds ago, he seems at a loss. This moment sums up the story that writer-director Zoya Akhtar is trying tell in her forthcoming movie.

In less than 3 minutes, the audience gets to know the relationship problems dogging the family.
