"A Mundane Bollywood Cliché!"
21 July 2018 | by komalbaghavanSee all my reviews

Rating - 2.75/5

Positives: 1) Ishaan and Janhvi's Performances 2) Social Message 3) Music 4) Cinematography and Production Design

Negatives: 1) Clichéd and Formulaic Storyline 2) Mundane Screenplay 3) Unmenacing Antagonist

Summary: Overall, Dhadak had a significant message to share in the climax and the superstar kids Ishaan and Janhvi were a delight to watch. But, the generic storyline and the tedious screenplay made it nearly unwatchable as I found myself cringing and regret watching the majority of the film. Nevertheless, it's sad to see Bollywood still trying to beat a dead horse while South Indian Film Industry is busy exploring unorthodox love stories like Arjun Reddy.
