Dhamaka Review: Despite Karthik Aryan's punch, the demise of Indian journalism is more of a sensation than an Dhamaka .

Dhamaka Movie Review:

What's good: Karthik Aryan, the music and you will get both in promos which are much better than the final product (besides comedy, Karthik is good and so is the music).

Arjun Pathak (Kartik Aryan) is our mentally disturbed radio jockey who has just been introduced after a song that will make you laugh when you are single. The song is a fault and the reason it makes you feel so single is this flashback montage of Arjun living a happy life with his wife Sumia (Maronal Thakur). He is now sitting in his office with divorce papers in hand and he got a call to give advice about the Bandra Worli Sea Link bombing.

He simply ignores the call to watch a section of Mumbai's Rs 1,600 crore 'Golden Gate' bridge explode. Arjun gets a call again which he uses to reclaim his place on prime time television but he knows very little about what is in store for him. No, seriously, he knows very little because there is so little in store for him.

Blast, an RSVP production now running on Netflix, is a faithful remake of the 2013 South Korean thriller Deo Tereo Raibeu (The Terror Live). Unfortunately, the result - a film that emerges from a conversation between a television anchor and a man in a deep, destructive funk within the confines of a Mumbai news studio - is more sensational than an (Dhamaka ) explosion.

This is unfortunate because Blast is a well-crafted film that makes the right noise about the news 'business' (if at times a little too loud) and, more importantly, about the underclass. Who works hard to build our bridges and heights. - Gets up but goes unrecognized and goes without a reward.

With so much to do, why isn't the Dhamaka as explosive as it should be? Much of the plot's promise goes to smoke, like a bridge that is under attack by terrorists. The reason is that there is a lack of meticulousness in filming modern Indian journalism. It comes back to a lot of verbal clashes with the preachers of sensationalism and leaves nothing.

Truth (truth) is a word that is used freely during filming in the face of all the noise that is attempted to convey as news from the studio space in which the film plays. But even after this important point, the ad is rubbed off, the script insists on continuing the harp on it and in the process loses its way in a sympathetic loop.

The 'hero', Arjun Pathak (Kartik Aryan), a young prime time news anchor, is at the end of his teaching career. His career has taken a hit - the reason for his decline is revealed much later in the film - and his field reporter-wife Sumia (Marunal Thakur in a special form) has filed for divorce. Professional decline and personal crisis are intertwined.

When everything seems to be getting lost, Sunday morning presents itself with an unexpected opportunity as usual. Arjun grabs her with both hands knowing full well that he has no way of believing the consequences of his action.

A man threatened to blow up Mumbai C-Link and called radio show host Arjun Pathak to tell him what he was going to do. Yes, the ambitious man, after losing his prime time TV slot, is now RJ. He dismisses it as a joke. That's wrong. The bomb exploded on the bridge, just as the caller had threatened.

Arjun realizes that he has a special breaking story in his hand, so he persuades his boss (Amarota Subhash, playing a role outside his comfort zone) to send a camera unit to the radio station level. , Becomes a TV news anchor again, and starts a conversation. With the terrorist - a disconnected voice that identifies itself as Raghubir Mehta, a helpless construction worker shortened by the nation - live on air.

"I will tell the truth whatever I say (I will tell the truth and only the truth)," Arjun joins whenever the show resumes after a break. You almost expect him to go ahead and say nothing but the truth, his hand is on a holy book.

It's a threat - no matter what the world thinks or needs, the news is aimed at a captive, pointless audience with the hype presented by fast news readers. And get ready to buy Hopla. The terrorist who believes that the television anchor is someone who will speak on his behalf and help him reach the people in power. He is no different from the users Arjun Pathak addresses: he has full confidence in the face in the studio.

Arjun's superior, who himself is striving for a better deal in the company and hopes to score big on this front with the latest breaking story, wants to lead the way towards "elimination of emotional patriotism", and counter A man from the terror unit (Vikas Kumar) should continue firing on Arjun Pathak until it is enough. Pushed to the sidelines, he decides that it is better not to pay attention to anyone's orders.

The man who set the city on fire for ransom is not your average terrorist. He is not fighting against the majority community and security forces. It has been wronged by the system and left to its own devices. He only wants the nation to stand up and take notice of the plight of its citizens: powerless and silent. She has a personal problem.

Dhamaka Movie Review: The Last Word

Everyone said that if it had been released 10-15 years ago, it would have been an acceptable film, but not in a world where there are better films of this kind.
