Dhadak has been the talk of B-Town ever since the film was announced. The movie is a remake of blockbuster Marathi movie 'Sairat'. 'Sairat' shot to fame with a rustic story unfolding the fate of two lovers. It also ended up being one of the musical hits with the song 'Zingaat' composed by duo Ajay and Atul. Karan Johar announced 'Dhadak' in November last year introducing his lead pair Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter. The movie directed by Shashank Khaitan, we're all hoping is a masterpiece given the picturesque backdrop of Rajasthan. Here are a few things to look forward to other than the lead pair.
Director Shashank Khaitan has wowed us in the past with films like 'Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania' and 'Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya'. Both of these movies received great reviews from the critics and have done really well
at the box office.
'Humpty Sharma ki Dulhania' was his directorial debut and he managed to win all our hearts with it. He then brought back his lead pair with 'Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya' and made us go 'Tama Tama'.
The promising director now has a challenge with 'Dhadak' where the lead pair is a pair of newcomers, but all seems well in this film's paradise.
Late actress Sridevi's eldest daughter Janhvi Kapoor is all set to make her debut with Dhadak, and we must say she is the spitting image of her mother.
As one can see in the trailer, Janhvi seems as promising as her mother and has this natural calling towards cinema.
She is a package of both, simple yet elegant which compliments her character in the movie. Janhvi was very professional when it came to handling herself during the schedule of the movie when the demise of Sridevi shocked the industry. It was reported that she resumed work as soon as she could without further delaying the last leg of the shoot.
The Marathi (original) version of the song was an instant hit, not just amongst the regional audiences but also most of the urban people.
However, there are mixed reviews about the Hindi version of 'Zingaat'.
A lot of people are comparing it with the original Marathi version, and bashing the Hindi version. The music is the same and so are most of the grooves, but let's face it, an original is an original!
The Hindi version of the song has been composed by ace music director duo Ajay and Atul who had composed the original version of it in 2016.
Unlike 'Sairaat' which had a rustic feel to it, 'Dhadak' has been shot in the beautiful land of the Royals, Rajasthan! The palaces, the lakes, the architectural beauty, 'Dhadak' has it all. The movie also focuses on Holi, the festival of colors and leaves no stone unturned in showcasing the traditional Rajasthani culture. If you love the visuals
and are fond of the ethnically rich culture, it is one movie to look forward to.
Ishaan Khatter's dance moves are really something. It reminds us a lot about his step-brother Shahid Kapoor. Ishaan proves his versatility in terms of his dance as he grooves to an energetic song like 'Zingaat' and gentleness in other comparatively slower romantic tracks. He is very expressive through it.
'Dhadak' releases in cinemas on July 20, 2018, and we wish them all the luck for the movie. Comparisons with 'Sairat' are expected, but we hope 'Dhadak' manages to take our breath away with the elegantly romantic simple tale of love.
