The last time Indian crowd flocked the theatres as late as 3AM was when Marathi hit Sairat ruled over the halls. The sairat frenzy caught up like wildfire. How could Filmmaker Karan Johar, have missed this opportunity? Hence...Dhadak.

Dhadak, Bollywood’s version of Sairat is a love story smeared with blood. Addressing the evils of honor killing, the movie follows the life of two young people falling in love and eloping. But there is more to this cliche. Dhadak brings forward the inane human need to judge and destroy anything beautiful. It captures the feeling of the first pangs of love on the reel and ends in a mindless feud that results in bad blood.

Ever since its first poster release, Dhadak has focused on being star kids Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khattar’s debut movie rather than a remake of Sairat. Twitterati went crazy with mixed reaction. From funny memes to a thousand heart smiley emojis Dhadak was all over social media. Dhadak is set to hit the big screens on 20 July 2018.

In one of the posters, the couple is seen brooding over their ill luck and deaths looms at large ( see “revolver”).

Dhadak Story & Trailer:

Seems like the filmmakers did not experiment much as Dhadak’s plot doesn’t stray a lot from that of its parent movie Sairat. Set in the scenic backdrop of Udaipur, the movie follows the love and life of Parthavi and Madhukar. The love-smitten couple decides to marry against their families’ consent and elope together. The vulnerabilities and sweet restlessness of young love render the movie a tender touch, which, the filmmaker has beautifully captured. Their happiness is however short lived as their new life as a couple bedazzles them and they come to regret decision the later. The movie, no doubt is a festival of colors but, with more streaks of blood red than ever.

Dhadak Budget, Prediction & Box Office Collection:

Ok, let`s talk numbers now. Dhadak movie budget is well within an upper limit of 30 crores as against Sairat’s 4 crore budget which is way….yyyy below than that of Dhadak. Speaking of numbers, wanna have a peep at Dhadak actor’s salary? Well, not exactly salary (lol!). Dhadak movie actors Ishaan Khattar and Janhvi Kapoor have decided to stay on the safer side and signed up for 60 lakhs respectively. Ashutosh Rana who plays the villain has settled for 80 lakhs for the movie.

Dhadak cast has been extensively promoting the movie and audience is loving it! People are herding up at malls just to watch the lovely Janhvi Kapoor oblige fans with a step or two from Zingaat 2.0. Naturally, Dhadak movie expectations are at an all-time high. Although it would be quite unfair to compare the remake with Sairat, already, critics and experts suggest that Dhadak Box Office collection from worldwide might even cross the 100 crore benchmark. Collecting 12-14 crores on its first day and 30-45 crores in its first week, the movie has a fair chance of entering the 100 crore club in its lifetime.

Dhadak Review & Hit or Flop:

Sairat was a movie unanimously praised by critics and audience alike. Again, excuse us for bringing up the comparison every time but you really can`t ignore the fact that, the remake of a blockbuster eternally hangs on the edge of a sword. Although critics have not yet opened up regarding how well the movie might perform, extensive publicity and all the buildup is making the audience curious, as to how the story might unfold. Endless dimensions and possibilities as always. Dhadak Movie review is expected to be a positive one with loads of critical acclaims. Bollywood is making a gradual shift from ‘cliched’ to ‘chancy’ and nothing could be said as of now. Disclaimer: We do not swear by blood and bones, but its a yay! from our end.
