As we talk about performances, Ishaan who is just 1 film old has the energy of a newcomer while his performance shows the cool confidence of an actor. While Jahnvi who marks her debut in Bollywood catches the eye with her beauty and performance. As it is her first movie, she is still rough at the edges but it’s definitely a good start. Further, Shridhar Watsar who plays the role of Ishaan’s vertically challenged friend is a laugh riot. Meanwhile, Ashutosh Rana who plays the role of a terrifying political figure is perfectly intense.
Meanwhile, Dhadak which shows some deep-rooted prejudices and shocking truths about our society is a must watch.
