Netflix’s most expensive custom-made feature film directed by Ram Madhvani of Neerja fame is a desi adaptation of the Korean thriller Terror Live. However Dhamaka moves far away from the original.
Madhvani,I am told, has created his own space,ironed out the rough edges in the original, and made the plot far more taut. Kartik plays a ruthless newshound, the star reporter called Arjun Pathak of a news channel named Bharosa 24 negotiating with a terrorist to save the city from attack.
This one is going to be a game-changer for Kartik Aaryan. Director Ram Madhvani has extracted the best out of the young star. Dhamaaka will take Kartik to the next level of stardom.
Kartik Aaryan plays a star-news-anchor who negotiates with a terrorist to prevent the city from being blown up, is a far more exciting beast than Kim Byung-woo’s Korean 2013 action thriller Terror Live. Once you see Kartik Aaryan playing the shrewd news anchor you will forget Ha Jung-woo in the original.Expected to stream in September.
