Suspense + Love Story + Communal Disharmony + Sucide Bomber
22 October 2007 | by (Middle Earth) – See all my reviews

If Daddy does a critically acclaimed "Zakhm", will daughter lag behind? Yes, "Dhokha" seems very much inspired by the former and tried to dish out a product which is a mix of suspense, marriage, communal (dis)harmony, pseudo-secularism and suicide bomber.

Muzammil Ibrahim is not too bad especially the script demands varied emotions. Can act, though woody at times... but hey – not too bad for a newcomer.

Tulip Joshi – one expression. The scene carrying a machine gun in her hand reminds you of a 1980's movie.

Aushima Sawhney – The story could have done away with her character. Does every product from Bhatt camp has to do with extra-marital relationships?

Ashutosh Rana , Anupam Kher, Gulshan Grover – reliable as usual.

Songs by M M Kreem are good.

Finally about Pooja Bhatt, I think she is good as a production controller for she seems to put more effort on bean-keeping thereby killing the creative force required to don the director's hat. Her fallout with the lead actor – is it a mere publicity stunt?

The story-line is very much predictable. While "Dil Se" had delved deeper into the psyche of suicide bomber, "Dhokha" deals the issue at a superficial level.

However it seems the project did initiate with an honest attempt to give an insights into the cause and effects.
