Janhvi and Ishaan are the utterly-butterly-cute pulse of the film
Dhadak is one such heartbeat that runs in every Bollywood movie we see, a heartbeat of love.
What makes this heart beat unique is the Zingat pairing of Janhvi and Ishaan.
Ishaan’s expressiveness and Janhvi’s innocence makes a simple story come across like a darling.
An atypical Dharma film so you should watch it for that too!

Read Detail Review
This is Shashank Khaitan’s third outing with Dharma and it isn’t just a launch pad, it’s a film with characters, just like his previous films.
Ditching the Dharma glamour, the director comes up with tried and tested classic Romeo Juliet in Bollywood style which rarely goes wrong.
Alekh (Story) – Patkatha (Screenplay)
Adapting/Remaking the Marathi blockbuster, Sairat, the soul of the film is the same, but the heart beats are different.
If you think of it, the story of all classic-Romeo-Juliet adaptations are more-or-less the same, right from Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak to Ram Leela to Dhadak. So, the story may or not be identical, but Dhadak has its individuality and relevance. Though the relevance part should have been a bit more highlighted but then it would have added tension to this light-hearted script so yeah we take our words back.
It is treated differently and in doing so the film leaves behind all comparison to the originals. Treated and knitted in a way to make it entertaining, light-hearted, funny and even engaging towards the end. The film sure had flaws of dragged scenes and slow-paced moments, but the cute couple is there to snatch and run away with those flaws, making us see nothing but just delight.
Udaipur’s feel is beautifully shown, and there is love and innocence even in the most tensed scenes.
Janhvi looks like a doll onscreen. Many a times resembling the young Sridevi ji, a mix of traditional and modernity, she is just adorable with a capital A. She showed both strong and vulnerable emotions perfectly and we lied how her character was more flamboyant than Ishaan’s, it made their pair catchier.
Ishaan stunned us with his debut act, but this high-on-energy innocent-eyed boy with a tinge of mischief will just win your heart this time. Full of expressions, he is just effortless in his act. Talking about innocence, Janhvi is synonymous to the word, what a debut. And what chemistry they both shared.
Must mention all the supporting characters right from Ashutosh Rana whose fiery eyes does all the talking, Kharaj Mukherjee, Ankit Bisht, to Sridhar Watsar who plays Madhu’s friend Purshottam wonderfully.
Geet Sangeet (Music)
Music is lively and befitting to the film’s backdrop of Udaipur.
Nirnay (FilmyCurry Verdict)
If you have seen the original Marathi version or the adapted Punjabi Version, you will still love Dhadak for its own approach (and climax). But more than that, you must watch it for the two new stars in Bollywood galaxy, Janhvi and Ishaan.
The question is, is it an art to copy, and the answer is yes it is 😊 Watch Dhadak to know what we mean!
