Dhak Dhak Movie Review:-
Is it the destination or the trip that matters? Here’s a motorcycle adventure that demonstrates that there’s more to a journey than these, both on the road and in life.
Tarun Dudeja and co-writer Parijat Joshi begin the story on a routine note, introducing the audience to the protagonists. Sky (Fatima Sana Shaikh) is a motorbike reviewer and influencer who is attempting to break free from her inadvertently scandalous social media image and storm the masculine bastion in order to forge her own identity.
Manpreet, or Mahi (Ratna Pathak Shah), is a grandmother, while Uzma (Dia Mirza) is an unloved housewife. Manjari, a Mathura girl, is about to marry a foreigner chosen by her mother. The rest of the novel follows their adventures, misadventures, and interactions as they embark on a transforming journey.
While expertly narrated, the first part of the film occasionally lags as it depicts biases against female drivers or passengers, a lack of safety for women, and how they are taken for granted. However, once they are on the road, the story shifts gears and amps up the excitement. Sreechith Vijayan Damodar’s cinematography perfectly portrays the mountains, whether it’s a calm trip on gorgeous roads or through dramatic terrains, landslides, flooding, and so on.
The film depicts folks who teach life lessons through simplicity, presented through memorable language, much like a true-blue voyage. ‘Apni problem mein tension lena aur doosre ki problem mein solution dena, yeh insaan ki fitrat hai,’ a truck driver encourages Manjari to look at difficulties objectively. Is khudke padosi ban kar dekho.’
The story’s twist of events is refreshing, just like when you’re traveling in real life and you know where you’re going but can’t predict what will happen along the way. The film also makes you giggle, thanks to Mahi and Manjari’s antics. The soundtrack by Rishi Dutta is cheerful, notably the folk-rock title track Banjara Re.
Ratna Pathak Shah, who plays a loving, shy, and cheeky Punjabi grandma, Fatima Sana Shaikh, who plays a firebrand girl struggling with her problems, Dia Mirza, who plays a jugaadu mechanic with buried desires, and Sanjana Sanghi, who plays the klutzy and overprotected simple daughter, all excel in their roles.
The heartwarming story of the four storm ‘Dhak Dhak’ ladies will make you want to saddle up and embark on an adventure, whether on the road or following your heart. This one is a must-see for its storytelling and visual appeal, and the dramatic experience is best enjoyed in theaters.
