Reasons why will it is a Double Dhamaka!
Why is the movie worth watching?
Well the answer to this question lies everywhere, a perfectly action packed thriller movie which will never miss to shock you in every single scene. The plot of the movie revolves around a phone call which threats the whole city by stating to blast off the ‘sea link’. The whole struggle in finding the person, the media role, the twist turns etc make an adrenelin rush in your body. The excellent performance by the actors make it more intensifying. The tension in the movie will never left you feel bored.
How the movie was put together?
The movie was all kept together in a very short time period. The movie was shot for 10 days in a singlr room itself. There was a lot of end moment jobs, edits, setups which were definitely not an easy job to be pulled out. However, movie dosen’t seems that it has been put all together at the last moment. It never felt like a last minute hack job at any stance. All the scenes have been preety well kept one after another and no rush is found. It copes to a good excent with all the other thriller movies.
Excellent roleplay and direction.
The role play in the movie was very well executed by every single character. The lead role of Arjun Pathak, enacted by Kartik Aryan is one of the hot topic of gossips nowadays among the casting community of bollywood. He payed justice to the intensity, feelings and the mental state of the character keepin in mind about his past life struggles. Event the actors other than Kartik has done a pretty well job in their scale. You can feel the intensity, stress and tension while watching the movie. You can fell every scene of the movie and never feels like scripted or boring
Mirror to the society.
Dhamaka has played a significant role in showing the harsh side of the society, especially the media. Soon as the protagonist tells the boss about the phone call the boss directly starts the orders to go live. This scene justifies that the news channels are blindly runnig behind the views and the rating, they don’t care wether the truth is shown ore not, all they care about is the ratings and ultimately Money. If the content shown by the media, which is blindly trusted by a lot of Indians is not true then how can we believe that there is a proper functioning of the government to make country stable.
Importance of True Media in growth.
Media is an very impotant part of communication of the government to the people. By the means of media the citizens get aware of every single thing taking place in in the country. They trust their media to such an excent that they can trust it blindly. This increases the burden up on the media to telecast only the truth. Seen in the movie that Arjun only shows the truth despite that his boss wanted to go live without any investigation or proof. But Arjun’s honest pays off at the last in finding the person. Now who was he? To find that out you need to watch the movie yourself.
Significance and power of media.
Dhamaka purely displays the power of the media in the country like India. It was observed that the person who plot the bomb called Arjun Pathak, who was a news anchor in a news channel named as Bharosa 24/7, to convey his demands. He wanted apology from the minister for an past incident. This signifies that the power, significance and reach of media is so high that it can influence the minister himself, despite of being an VIP.
Best in the class performance.
The story of the past of the main character Arjun Pathak is very dramatic and struggleful. The pain, struggles he faced in his life were really harsh upon him and he still is not completely out of it. The pain which was in need to be justified with excellence is very well pulled over by Kartik Aryan. Kartik Aaryan made a double dhamaka by his acting and excellent performance. His actions, reactions, emotions etc build a complete connection with the audience. There isn’t any single point in the whole movie where you would feel disconnected or bored.
Excellent Screenplay, Script-writing and Direction.
The most hot topic about the movie is that it has been shot in only 10 days and that too in only one single room. There was a great pressure over the screenplay team and the camera crew to get the best shots possible But the end results are amazing. The direction of the movie is very well assigned off. Ram Madhvani is the director of the movie, who is already known for his excellent works in the past. He is very well known for his mind-blowing films such as Aarya, Neerja etc. The cinematography of the movie is very well carried along with the scene and the expressions. Overall a very well executed job done by the whole team.
The whole movie has been shot in 10 days that too in a single room. Can you believe it? How is this even possible to make such a masterpiece in just 10 days. Well this only possible if one has a very firm dedication towards the work or the art he is involved in. Despite of all the difficulties the team might have faced the end result is very amazing and is very well appreciated also loved by the audience. Its clear that nothing is impossible in the artistic world if there is need to create something amazing.
A must watch movie for thriller seeking audience.
The movie is a completely packed thriller with bars of expectations which it fulfills as well. Everything about the movie is very well planned, executed and whether it be direction, performance or pulling the whole movie together. This is a pure masterpiece which is a must watch experience.
We wish Kartik Aaryan a Dhamaka on his birthday along with Dhamaka on the Netflix! A double Dhamaka for the Dhamakedar Actor!
