Zoya Akhtar’s Dil Dhadakne Do has been wowing audiences all over and while the entire ensemble cast is terrific in the film, Ranveer Singh has been singled out for his outstanding performance. As Kabir Mehra, the boy man of the family who still wants his plane over anything else, he brings the right doses of innocence and maturity to the difficult part and is splendid in every scene he appears in.
The reviews from here and abroad have pointed out the same. We here at BollySpice said: “Ranveer is a pleasant surprise as the kid with a silver spoon who has had enough with his parents dictating his life for him. It’s a welcome change from his usually brattish Casanova roles.”
Taran Adarsh of Bollywoodhungama wrote: “Ranveer Singh has definitely taken a giant leap from all of his previous performances and delivers a crisp act here. He holds the film strongly on his shoulders and also prevents it from sinking.”
Rajeev Masand in his review of Dil Dhadakne Do said: “Ranveer Singh is effortlessly charming as the rich slacker, always ready with a clever quip. There’s an innocent, boyish quality to his humor and even his dancing. He’s terrific in one of the film’s best scenes, throwing caution to the wind, exposing his parents’ double standards with fiery intensity.”
In their review, The Guardian pointed out: “(Ranveer) Singh, meanwhile, is busy making playboy Kabir’s smirks and sniggers unexpectedly winning: they seem positively revolutionary when set against his straight- or sad-faced elders, those of a young man tacking away from grim obligation and on towards happiness.”
Ranveer’s performance has also been hugely loved and lauded by the audiences who have been flocking to watch Dil Dhadakne Do. Bollywood stars usually avoid ensemble films but even in a pool of talent Ranveer has stepped out and smashed it out of the park. And made hearts beat like never before.
