Dhamaka Movie Review: Kartik Aaryan delivers a dhamakedaar performance in Netflix film

Netflix’s new film, Dhamaka, starring Kartik Aaryan, Mrunal Thakur and Amruta Subhash, starts off with a blast but ends in a dud, says our Dhamaka Movie Review.

Movie Name: Dhamaka
Cast: Kartik Aaryan, Mrunal Thakur
Director: Ram Madhvani

Every now and then, we come across a film where an unassuming actor is entrusted with the task of pulling off a role that’s seemingly larger than their cinematic persona. More often than not, director Ram Madhvani is known to throw such googlies at us. Cue: Sonam Kapoor in Neerja. In Kartik Aaryan’s Dhamaka, Ram does it again. He picks a man infamous for his monologues, known for his unruly mane and a toothy smile endearing to many, and places him as his prime-time news anchor – Arjun Pathak – with terrifying bombs exploding on the Bandra Worli Sea Link in Mumbai in the backdrop – both figuratively and literally. And he manages to squeeze a dhamakedaar performance out of this Kartik Aaryan.

Kartik’s Arjun, at the start of this Netflix offering, is a radio anchor, demoted from his prime-time television anchor role despite a five-year successful run. He’s also sitting at his corner radio studio, in a whirl of smoke from his cigarette, going through a divorce draft, reminiscing the life that was. Eventually, we learn about the conflict and how his personal and professional life came to what it is today. He goes on air, starts off with some traffic update – the Sea Link will be shut between 9-10 am due to some construction work, so avoid it – and then he gets his first caller. A man, who identifies himself as Raghubeer Mhate, declares, “Main Sea Link udane wala hoon.

At this point, you know that Dhamaka is taking an A Wednesday (2008) turn, also available on Netflix, if you want to give it a watch. The events that follow are predictable, yet adrenaline-pumping. A common man, a labourer who actually helped build that bridge is now hellbent on destroying it, to get attention. To get an apology. Three workers were killed one rainy day in Mumbai while patch-repairing that bridge. The compensations promised never reached the families. The news never made it to prime time. Everything was forgotten. But not forgiven. Sarkar ko maafi mangni padegi, he says.

The angst of this common man is not hard to identify. You empathise with him, while you ask yourself if a blast, that puts the lives of other innocent people in danger, the way to do it. Ram Madhvani keeps the conflict very basic here, almost not challenging the viewers enough. In all this, there’s the negotiation of an “exclusive”. Arjun bargains his prime-time news anchor position claiming this as his big exclusive and promising the channel higher TRPs. But the game he plays is dirty, and even though he might want to wash his hands off, there’s blood there, the blood of those three labourers, that connects him intrinsically to the main plot.

Neerja was a true story, and despite creative liberties, we knew how it would have ended. Dhamaka ends on a dud and that’s a flaw we cannot overlook. In a hurry to wrap things up, Ram Madhvani takes the righteous path out, that’s not only easy, it is also borderline ridiculous.

Kartik Aaryan does his best as Arjun Pathak. Though he gets ample scope to deliver those monologues that have become synonymous with him, simply by virtue of being a news anchor, they are not grating. Amruta Subhash as Ankita, the boss, is flawless. She owns the screen while she’s on it. Mrunal Thakur as Soumya Mehra Pathak, Arjun’s estranged wife, gets one romantic montage at the start and an emotional tugging-at-your-heartstrings scene on the bomb-affected bridge. Just not enough to decide her impact. We needed more of her.

Bunty Aur Babli 2 Movie Review: Rani-Saif shine, but you will miss Abhishek Bachchan

Bunty Aur Babli 2 is enjoyable when the camera is on Rani Mukerji and Saif Ali Khan. And yes, you will miss Abhishek Bachchan.

Movie Name: Bunty Aur Babli 2
Cast: Rani Mukerji, Saif Ali Khan, Pankaj Tripathi
Director: Varun V Sharma

Bollywood’s original heist duo is back. However, this time, with a makeover and a new team. The original Bunty and Babli – Abhishek Bachchan and Rani Mukerji entertained the audiences in 2005. Abhishek and Rani’s instant charm and impeccable chemistry contributed big time to the film’s success. Flash forward 16 years, and we have a Bunty aur Babli redux, jazzed up with a makeover and two new entrants. Directed by Varun V Sharma, the film has Saif Ali Khan replacing Abhishek Bachchan as Bunty, Rani reprising her Babli act, and two new faces – Siddhant Chaturvedi and Sharvari Wagh giving the franchise a younger fresh appeal.

The plot is pretty simple. The original Bunty and Babli face their biggest fear of being redundant and their brand being tarnished by two youngsters using their names to con people in the city. Now-retired Saif and Rani are happy in their family life until Inspector Jatayu Singh (Pankaj Tripathi) lands at their doorstep to arrest them for a robbery they didn’t commit. Now, the original B and B not only have to defend their brand but also hunt down the impostors and protect their legacy. Sounds fun right?

Bunty Aur Babli 2 has a lot that works in its favour. The writing is crisp, the dialogues laced with dollops of witty humour and Pankaj Tripathi is at his best. Also, the pace and length of the film work in its favour. It’s tight and doesn’t drag its feet in important scenes. Rani Mukerji as Babli is a major highlight. Her comic timing and humour are quite a revelation, and showcases a side we haven’t seen before. The over-the-top outfits and garish makeup only add to the caricature that is Babli – and what we love about her.

Amongst the youngsters, Sharvari exudes confidence and has immense potential. Even beneath the prosthetics and makeup, she has a spark and looks like this is what she was born to do. Siddhant uses his charisma to his advantage and goes full throttle when it comes to playing up his Casanova image.

The big elephant in the room is Saif Ali Khan replacing Abhishek Bachchan as Bunty. Those are big shoes to fill. Though the comparisons are unfair, there is an issue is with the casting. As the bumbling Bunty from Fursatganj, he feels out of place and a bit lost. Oddly enough he looks the most comfortable in his designer suits in the second half. You can’t help but think of Abbas-Mustan’s Race when you see a good-looking Saif Ali Khan donning stylish shades.

The songs and music in Bunty Aur Babli 2 are forgettable. That was one of the biggest reasons why the first one worked, with foot-tapping tracks like Kajra Re, Chup Chup Ke and the catchy title song. In fact, this one has a scene with the original Kajra Re playing in the background, which serves as a bleak reminder of how bad the music in the second part is.

Bunty Aur Babli 2 is enjoyable when the camera is on Saif and Rani. There is a chase sequence between the original Bunty-Babli and the newbies, which is a major highlight and is well shot. Overall, the film is entertaining and worth a watch. Yes, you will miss Abhishek and Rani’s chemistry, but don’t let that not be a reason for you to skip the film.
