Naive, childish and absurd screenplay
CyniLogical24 December 2018
And ridiculous leading characters arrangement. The over the top beginning scene that a man could simply kick an overturned vehicle back so easily and made it crash into the assault mob was just ridiculous, and the slow motion to show how he hit and kicked those guys and made them fly into the air and crashed all over the place was just an early sure sign of how bad this movie could become later. Then his wife, his chief of police and him played another cartoon-like absurd scene was another chip fell badly to further prove the failure of this lousy movie. Lot of unnecessary slow motioned scenes then suddenly back to normal were just stupid. The lame screenplay was just laughable that was further ruined by the brainless non-talent directing, making the childish shallow movie totally unwatchable.

Dassehra Review
Magow-Intermean26 October 2018
Warning: Spoilers
Honest inspector Aditi Singh (Tina Desai) and hard-boiled cop Rudra (Neil Nitin Mukesh) investigate a multiple suicide case. They stumble upon a darker truth revolving around the corrupt politician Yadav (Govind Namdeo) and Shankar (Manish Vatsalya). The political nexus forces Rudra to become the angry-young-man and one-man-army all rolled into one.

Review: An honest man fighting against the corrupt political system is a concept that's nearly done-to-death in Hindi cinema. Yet, the formula of a quintessential hero fighting a gang of bad guys, always holds promise for an action film. Dassehra, working with the age-old metaphor of good winning over bad, looks like a film that you've probably seen a hundred times before. The Rohit Shetty-style over-the-top action sequences, with baddies flying off in different directions, looks good in slow motion, but it feels jaded, too. For viewers seeking a movie with action, item numbers and paisa-feko dialogues, Dassehra has the right amount of masala. It's just that the formula-driven narrative of the film feels like it's older than the Ramayana itself.

Aditi Singh (Tina) and Rudra (Neil) are honest to a fault. They love each other with the same passion that they uphold the law in their profession as cops. When the suicide case of four college girls looks like it's actually cold-blooded murder, they stumble into the dark and deceitful world of corrupt politicians and their muscle-men. A tragic twist puts Rudra into Singham-meets-Dabangg mode and he beats the bad guys into a pulp. The writing by Saurabh Chaudhary and Varadraj Swami is uninspiring. The film is also overly generous with item and dance numbers like Maee Re and Joganiya, which only end up adding to the length of the film.

In a brief role, Tina Desai plays the modern, independent girl with ease, while Neil Nitin Mukesh pulls off the larger-than-life hero with gusto. But the baddies, played by Manish Vatsalya and Govind Namdeo, are just not convincing enough. Even though, Dassehra is a quick watch, the dated content and the loud background score turn it into a real hotchpotch.

Excellent film with great message
Parthiv32126 December 2018
It is a type of crime mystery thriller which is rare in Hindi cinema. The movie is filled with twists and turns, which are completely unpredictable. The film has led me to appreciate Director and writer.. Bravo..
