While The Indian Express film critic Shubhra Gupta had given the film a negative review. She wrote, “Sairat was set in rural Maharashtra, and takes its young leads to a slummy outpost in Hyderabad. Parshu and Archi learn the hard way that you can run, but not hide, and lead us to one of the most wrenching climaxes in the movies. Dhadak gives us Udaipur and Kolkata and glossed-up grunge, and provides Madhukar and his ‘oonchi-jaat’ love Parthavi some tough times via her snarly father (Rana), which they ride over so easily that the end is not earned enough.”
The film released on 2791 screens out of which 2235 were in India and the rest overseas.
Well, the film has been getting a great response from the buffs, so let’s wait and watch how it performs in the coming days.
On Sunday, the collections should see an even bigger jump and it will be Monday onwards when the film’s real test will begin.
Dhadak is the Hindi remake of Marathi blockbuster Sairat which starred Rinku Rajguru and Ankit Thosar. The Hindi remake is directed by Shashank Khaitan and bankrolled by Karan Johar. While it is Janhvi’s debut Bollywood flick, Ishaan made his Bollywood debut with Majid Majidi’s Beyond The Clouds.
