“Kangana Is A Showstopper In Dhaakad” – A Subhash K Jha Review

“Kangana  Is  A Showstopper In Dhaakad” – A Subhash K Jha Review
Dhaakad

Starring Kangana Ranaut, Arjun Rampal, Divya Dutta, Saswata Chatterjee

Directed by Razneesh Ghai

Don’t let those pouty reviews about no-substance-all-style discourage you. Dhaakad is a killer of an actioner. Its fights are so furious I could feel the bone crunching and the teeth smashing against righteously aggressive fists of fury.

And besides what substance did Hum ….Aapke Hain Koun boast of? Not that I am comparing the two. But Dhaakad too relies almost entirely on treatment and execution. And kudos to debut director Razneesh Ghai for making the violence look so dirgefully dynamic; the bloodshed feels like a blizzard of remorse showered on an unrepentant conscience.

Gory? Yes! Violent? Of course! We live in a violent world where an eye for an eye is not enough. It’s more like a limb for an eye. Seeing Kangana in the killer mode is reward enough for all the time
