Dhadak review: Janhvi, Ishaan’s air-brushed drama
Dhadak is the Hindi remake of Marathi hit Sairat. Director Shahshank Khaitan has set his film in Rajasthan’s Udaipur. The film starring Ishaan Khatter and Janhvi Kapoor lacks depth and doesn’t delve deep into the problems induced by the caste system. The film also has Ashutosh Rana, but he hasn’t been given ample screen space. There are good tunes thrown in between but they don’t serve the purpose as Dhadak, overall, barely skims beyond the obvious. At 137-minute duration, it’s not as powerful as the original, but could be a good watch for audiences looking for decent fresh faces. In our movie review, we have rated Dhadak 2.5 out of 5.
