Dhadak movie review
Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter’s debut film Dhadak is released and in the theatres now.
The movie is the remake of Marathi sleeper hit Sairat that was released in 2016. Although the location of the movie and certain characters have been changed the storyline still follows the same love angle.
The story is about the love between a rich girl, Parthavi played by Janhvi and a poor boy Madhukar played by Ishaan. How the romance blossoms between them covers the first half of the film.
However, unlike Sairat, the director fails to catch the innocence of the two lovers as they decide to fall for each other despite the differences in their family backgrounds. Dhadak seems to be overly glamorized as compared to the more realistic Sairat.
The story is set in Udaipur and then moves to Kolkata when the Parthavi and Madhukar run away and decide to make a life for themselves away from their families.
Since it is a remake, comparisons between the two movies will obviously be made. Sairat had a tragic ending that depicted the stigma in Indian society about inter caste and inter class marriages and Dhadak has a similar climax.
Janhvi looks radiant and beautiful in the movie and is sure to win hearts while Ishaan also impresses with his acting skills and energy.
Janhvi Kapoor is the daughter of the late actress Sridevi and Boney Kapoor and Ishaan is the half-brother of Shahid Kapoor. The movie is expected to make good money at the box office by Bollywood industry experts.
Sairat was a huge hit in Maharashtra and Dhadak is also expected to do a good business.
