Movie Verdict

Dhokha; Round D Corner starts off slowly, but picks up the pace after a terrorist enters the protagonist’s home and takes his wife hostage. All the scenes that come up after the hostage situation are very well written and executed which will hook us to watch the movie without any deviations. Though there are a few dull moments in the 1st and 2nd half of the movie, interesting plot points and twists keep us engaged till the end. There are a few unexpected twists in the movie that should only be watched in the theatres.

While it comes to the performances, Madhavan once again shows his mettle as an actor, though the character is regular and has nothing new to offer. Aparshakti Khurana has seen in a serious role unlike in his previous movies and the actor did a decent job in the role of a terrorist with a hidden past. Khushali Kumar looks beautiful on screen and shared good chemistry with Madhavan, but the actress is not impressed with her overall performance in the movie. Darshan Kumar suits the role of the cop perfectly, but the character is so simple and has less scope to perform. All other actors in the movie did their part as required.

Technically Dhokha: Round D Corner looks okay. Songs composed by Tanishk Bagchi, Bappi Lahiri, and Rochak Kohli are not up to the mark but look apt for the proceedings, but the background score composed by Amar Mohile adds the required thrill to the scenes. The cinematography handled by Amit Roy looks okay with some good shots. The production values of the movie are good.

Director Kookie Gulati, who failed to impress the audience with his films ‘Prince’ & ‘The Big Bull’, was partially successful in entertaining the audience with a thriller this time.

Overall, Dhokha: Round D Corner is a watchable thriller with few flaws in the narration that can be ignored.
