Dhaakad Movie Review : Kangana Ranaut, Arjun Rampal and Divya Dutta starrer film ‘Dhaakad’ has been released today. Kangana Ranaut is seen doing a lot of action in this film. This special agent named ‘Dragon Fly’ alone is enough to get rid of the sweat of the good. In front of Kangana Ranaut, there are not one but two strong villains Arjun Rampal and Divya Dutta and both of them have created a lot of difficulties for Kangana in this film. Action films have a different audience in India and the biggest kick in ‘Dhaakad’ is that Kangana Ranaut is seen doing this action. Kangana has worked hard for this film, from reducing her weight to doing great action. Now know whether this film can make Kangana’s hard work successful or not.
Story: Agni (Kangana Ranaut) is a special agent who breaks the syndicate of women trafficking in Europe and saves many girls. Meanwhile, he is brought to India to catch the real mastermind of all this wrong business. Although she has some memories of India that she does not want to come here, but then she comes to India and she has to find Rudraveer (Arjun Rampal) and Rohini (Divya Dutta) who run the business of stealing coal and women trafficking. This is the story of this film.
Talking about the story and the screenplay, the first 10 to 15 minutes are quite boring. In the very first scene, Kangana, who became Agent Agni, is seen doing action, but why is she doing this, what is happening, you will not understand anything. It is very difficult to connect to the story. The screenplay of the film is very slow and cumbersome too. It is an action film and the problem is that you will be watching only baseless action. My complaint will also be with the editing team because although this film is only 2 hours 13 minutes, but when you go to the cinema halls, you will find it difficult to even cut these 2 hours. Many scenes have been dragged to create a panic image of Arjun Rampal. Also, the film has a lullaby and some scenes, which come on the screen again and again. It starts getting boring after a couple of times. Keep in mind, listening to this lullaby, you can also sleep in theaters.
Direction has been taught to Kangana by Hollywood’s action director.
Why flat-faced Kangana?
In Dhaakad, Kangana Ranaut has been introduced as an action heroine, but while doing action like any other Bollywood action film, Kangana is also not acting here. In many places, the robot ‘Krish’ starts appearing again with Kangana Blank Face. When Kangana shoots, many goons fall together, but when Kangana’s bullets run out and the goons fire, Kangana bows down and escapes from the bullets. The lighting of the film, the set is also so dark and low mood that you will feel cumbersome again and again. Yes, Sharib Hashmi becomes Kangana’s agent, whenever you come on the screen, you feel a little relaxed and normal. But apart from this, everyone is busy just doing ‘dishoom-dishum’ with a flat face. The first half of the film is quite boring.
After the interval, a little emotional side of Kangana Ranaut is also visible. She looks a bit emotional, cries too, is seen doing everything to save a girl child. But to reach this second half, you have to see the entire first half. There is no suspense in this film at all. You already know what is going to happen in the story. Not only this, it is known for some time in advance.
Divya Dutta has acted wonderfully in this film.
Divya Dutta will win hearts in Kangana Ranaut’s film
It is said that the hero is as big as the terrible and dangerous villain in front of him. Whether you lift the Gabbar of Shoal or the Mogembo of Mr. India… this is the strategy adopted in Dhaakad. In front of Kangana, who became Agent Agni, two terrible villains like Arjun Rampal and Divya Dutta have been erected who create fear in the heart. In between, these two make you look like psycho villains, who enjoy killing.
Some scenes of Arjun Rampal are so creepy that what to say, while you cannot remain impressed by Divya Dutta’s acting. Divya has done wonders in some scenes. Actually, Kangana Ranaut, who became Agent Agni, is fighting a lot, but Divya and Arjun have done the work of acting on the screen. Seeing a scene of Arjun Rampal, you will remember that Khilji of ‘Padmavat’, who gives a speech to fight his hungry soldiers and talks about the motherland and Mughalia Sultanate. Arjun is also doing a similar scene in this film, and is explaining the young boys to theft of coal.
After all, you must have understood that watching this film in theaters can prove to be a tough task. If you want a reason to watch the film, then it is the acting of Divya Dutta and Arjun Rampal and the action of Kangana. Don’t be too hopeful about the story. 2 stars to this movie from my side.
