dhadak movie review

The much-promoted film Dhadak has finally hit the screens today. The film is Sridevi’s daughter Janhvi Kapoor’s debut and also stars Ishaan Khatter. The film is official remake of hit Marathi film Sairat.
Comparisons with Marathi blockbuster #Sairat are inevitable… Viewed as a stand-alone film, #Dhadak has several dramatic highs, scintillating music and importantly, the young pair [Ishaan and Janhvi] is electrifying…

By Taran Adarsh Shashank Khaitan adapts “#Sairat wonderfully well… Retains the essence, but gives #Dhadak a different texture… Romance is fresh, pure and energetic… Tense moments keep you on tenterhooks… Culmination leaves you shocked, stunned and speechless…”

Ishaan is tremendous… Nails the part like a seasoned actor… Incredible talent… Janhvi springs a pleasant surprise and pitches in a confident performance… Watch out for the sequence when she confronts Ishaan in the second hour… #Dhadak

Ajay-Atul’s soundtrack deserves brownie points… The locales of Rajasthan and Kolkata have been captured beautifully… #Dhadak dips in the post-interval portions, has a few rough edges too, but the shocking finale makes you forget the hiccups.
