Dhadak Movie Review, Rating, Story, Cast and Crew

Dhadak starts on a beautiful note and is thoroughly engaging. The essence of Udaipur, beautiful romance and the entertainment impresses the audience. New pair Ishaan and Janhvi will take you a different and new world of surprises. The entire first half has been racy, interesting and engaging. The songs have been shot well and they have been placed well. The real twist comes during the interval and the makers played a safe game without making many changes to the real film Sairat. 

The second half too stuns the audience and makes a decent watch. If one watches Sairat, they made not be thrilled as they know the shocking elements from the film. The drama has been extremely impressive and the narration has been tight enough. The pre climax episodes along with the top notch performances are the major highlights of Dhadak. The climax has been simple and the second half of the film has been impressive.


Ishaan Khatter delivered out a top notch performance and is a treat to watch. He has been natural and his expressions should be specially mentioned. He has been flawless in the romantic episodes. Janhvi Kapoor is sure a surprise. She is honest and delivered out her best in her debut film. She has been beautiful and nailed it in her role. Ashutosh Rana has been perfect for his role. Sridhar Watsar managed to entertain the audience throughout with this comic timing. All the other actors have been decent in their assignments.

Dhadak has been inspired from Marathi blockbuster Sairat and the makers played safe without making much changes for the script. The film has been set in the backdrop of Udaipur and the romantic scenes turned out really well. The music, cinematography and the background score are the major strengths of the film. The editing has been crisp and the film has been made on a lavish scale. Shashank Khaitan should be appreciated for his work.

Final Word

Ishaan and Janhvi have been outstanding in their roles which makes Dhadak a decent one time watch.
