Dharma productions launching pad yet again featured two big Bollywood clan’s children Janhvi Kapoor daughter of Late Sri Devi and Boney Kapoor and Ishaan Khatar brother of Shahid Kapoor and Step-son of Pankaj Kapur. Dhadak is based on Sairat, a blockbuster Marathi movie which stirred its audiences across the globe by its powerful story and raw acting by young Marathi actors.
Karan Johar took the risk and it paid well in terms of box-office result but, as we all know when its Dharma productions things will gonna mould into a glamorous masala flick with tons of Bollywood dancing numbers and lavish costumes on a big scale budget. Coming towards the story, it’s same as the original Marathi movie about caste, custom and honour killing.
Madhu played by Khattar and Parthavi played by Janhvi belongs to two different backgrounds in terms of class and they fell in love. But, the problem in their relationship arises when the girl’s father being a politician and influential figure caught them red-handed and later this movie takes an emotional, action-packed U-turn about their surviving and struggle to start over a new life.
Talking about songs “Zingaat” sung by Ajay Gogavale and Atul Gogavale is the highlight and before the release of this movie this song crossed over a million views on youtube. Coming towards the flaws of this movie is the female protagonist, who still needs to sunk in the character and made it more relatable, though it’s her debut I am sure being a daughter of such a legendary actress Late Sri Devi she will pull this through. Secondly, the innocence which Sairat shows is somewhere lost in Dhadak, the producers have made this movie commercialized rather than a simple realistic movie which touched hearts of those who have gone through same in this cruel society.
I would rate this movie 6/10, like this a debutant movie and they have still got a long way to go.
