Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter’s Dhadak is getting an encouraging response. While many are applauding Janhvi’s debut performance, others are comparing it to Marathi blockbuster, Sairat, yet liking the film.
Talking bout moolahs, it has earned Rs 8.71 Cr on its first day and it’s Day 1 collection is higher than Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan and Sidharth Malhotra’s debut film Student Of The Year.
Trade analyst Taran Adrash tweeted the collection and wrote, “#Dhadak takes a HEROIC START... Rarely does a film starring absolute newcomers open so well... Day 1 is higher than #StudentOfTheYear [₹ 8 cr]… Fri ₹ 8.71 cr. India biz.”
SpotboyE Editor, Vickey Lalwani, rated the movie 4 stars and wrote, “I have not seen Sairat. I felt I should see it before I venture out to review Dhadak. But then I thought: Why not see Dhadak as an independent film? Does it engage me? Does it entertain me? Haven't we all, me included, compared all star kids to their parents in their debut film itself and given them lesser marks? Haven't we seen remakes and 10 out of 10 times said that the original was better? Enough was enough, so I entered Dhadak having taken care that it was a virgin territory for me. Janhvi Kapoor is the No.1 reason why you all are going to see this film. Live in denial, I don't care.”
He also lauded late actress, Sridevi's daughter, Janhvi's debut performance and said, “Now, for Janhvi's performance. Let's keep it simple: She is good. She has an innocence on her face, which is a bit rare these days. She can emote. She has a typical way of talking, no effort made to imitate anybody. Mind you, it's a 21-year old's first tryst with acting. In fact, Sridevi had told Janhvi, 'no matter what they will compare you in your 1st film to me in my 400th'. Please do NOT compare her to Sridevi. Don't forget the 70s when Sridevi was taking baby steps in South; she stormed into Bollywood only in '83.”
is definitely an encouraging figure for the young talents- Janhvi Kapoor and
Ishaan Khatter. Let's hope weekend brings a bigger smile on their faces.
