Dhaakad Cast: Kangana Ranaut, Divya Dutta, Arjun Rampal, Saswata Chatterjee
Dhaakad Director: Razneesh Razy Ghai
The place to Watch: In Theatres
Assessment by: Russel D’Silva
Kangana Ranaut has been waddling via a protracted stretch of disappointing movies, together with I Love NY, Katti Batti, Rangoon, Simran, Manikarnika, Judgementall Hai Kya, Panga and Thalaivii, which have failed each critically and commercially. Now, Dhaakad comes alongside, which is hardly going to change her fortunes regardless of showcasing her in a never-before-seen avatar, which she nails to the T. Sadly, her action-packed avatar is available in a movie for which it’s going to hardly strike a footnote, when it deserves to go down as one of many defining motion roles in all of Indian cinema.
So, are you enthusiastic about what to look at this weekend or what to look at this week and questioning whether or not Dhaakad is value your time? Scroll down for my full Dhaakad film assessment…
What’s it about
Tremendous-spy Agni (Kangana Ranaut) is tasked with infiltrating and bringing down a global flesh-trade operation, with its roots in India, however double crosses, an surprising ambush and a pair of exceedingly formidable foes compels her to reevaluate her methods.
Watch the Dhaakad trailer under:
Kangana Ranaut seems, strikes and breathes the a part of a no-holds-barred, tough-as-nails, high-octane, death-defying, lean, imply, badass, kickass, daredevilry personified agent in Dhaakad, pulling off each motion sequence like an precise professional on the battlefield with years of expertise. Divya Dutta and Saswata Chatterjee add good help as one in all her adversaries and mentor respectively.
As compelling as Kangana Ranaut is together with her motion chops, she’s terribly let down by extraordinarily weak and jumbled-up motion choreography, a lot in order that a number of the fight scenes seem like an entire joke. Additionally, there’s a lot about her character’s graph and the remainder of the plot that is all too handy simply to take the plot ahead. Arjun Rampal, strive as he would possibly, simply cannot make an impression due to how inarticulately his character has been sketched. Even the massive reveal in the long run may be seen from miles away, ans when it is revealed, it is as if writer-Director Razneesh Razy Ghai and his co-writers, Chintan Gandhi and Rinish Ravindra, ran out of a script given how instantly issues wrap up. And when Dhaakad just isn’t slowed down by plot contrivances or lazy writing, it both retains pushing the boundaries of incredulity to present us a hearty unintended giggle or exams our endurance by getting somebody to sing the identical lullaby (actually talking) for the umpteenth time.
Kangana Ranaut goes all out as a badass spy in Dhaakad and pulls it off, too. If solely the remainder of the movie was even of what her character is. I am going with 2.5 out of 5 stars.
