Dhamaka Movie Review: From Pyar Ka Punchnama, Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety to Dhamaka, Kartik Aaryan has proved his versatility. Ram Madhvani has highlighted the other side of journalism through the most anticipated thriller. Mrunal Thakur's act brought an emotional and romantic angle to the story.

Ram Madhvani, a filmmaker who is known for films like Neerja and a web series like Aarya, brought Dhamaka to mount a tenable attack on what most news channels dish out in the name of journalism.

Kartik Aaryan Film 'Dhamaka' Lands Netflix Deal - Variety

The unfolds in the confines of a Mumbai news studio with a conversation between a television anchor Arjun Pathak (Kartik Aaryan) and a man in a deep, destructive funk, who is also termed as a terrorist but he is just taking revenge.

The film a well-crafted, making the right noises about the news 'business', about the underclass that works hard to build our bridges but goes unrecognized and unrewarded.

Moreover, Kartik Aaryan has laden the weight of Dhamaka with confidence, and he does his best to attract the audience. There's a dialogue from the film, "Who is an Anchor? An anchor is an actor. What does an actor need? An actor needs an audience." Aaryan got his audience!

The 'hero', Arjun Pathak (Kartik Aaryan) is a young prime-time news anchor whose career and relationship with his field reporter-wife Saumya (Mrunal Thakur) have hit the skids.  When all seems lost, an unlikely opportunity comes itself on a routine Sunday morning and Arjun grabs it with both hands.

Dhamaka Movie Review: A must-watch thriller as Kartik Aaryan has perfectly played the role of a news anchor. His romantic and emotional angle with Mrunal Thakur is adding an emotional angle to the film. The film is all about revenge against the high-profile minister for neglecting the lives of laborers who work hard to build bridges.

Cast: Kartik Aaryan, Mrunal Thakur, Amruta Subhash

Director: Ram Madhvani
