Shubhra Gupta The Indian Express Kartik Aaryan film feels like a set. And everyone feels like they are acting out set-pieces in this Netflix thriller. Rated: 1/5 Nov 20, 2021 Full Review Anupama Chopra Film Companion Kartik Aaryan stretches himself as an actor in Dhamaka but the scenario is too outlandish. Nov 19, 2021 Full Review Jason Flatt But Why Tho? A Geek Community Dhamaka is over-exaggerated and bloated by its mediocre secondary characters. Still, its action, drama, and main character carry it strong enough to warrant a watch Rated: 7.5/10 Jan 16, 2023 Full Review Sukanya Verma Dhamaka doesn't always hit the right buttons and Kartik Aaryan is a puny choice for a role of enormous calibre and incessant focus. Rated: 2.5/5 Feb 12, 2022 Full Review JK Sooja Common Sense Media A decent effort with some big names almost saves this rehashed thriller. The problem with Dhamaka is largely that it doesn't do anything that new or entertaining beyond the genre's expected tropes. Rated: 2/5 Dec 16, 2021 Full Review Shah Shahid Split Screen Podcast "The Acting is the least offensive part of whatever Dhamaka was trying to be." Nov 30, 2021 Full Review Read all reviews

Sohaib S Great movie .best Actor Ravi teja 🔥🔥 Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/23/22 Full Review Henry B So predictable and so stupid how things act in the movie. Like the police who has counter terrorism experience says that it will take 3 hours to locate the terrorist who is just near 10 km from the media building... And he says that he's keep changing his IP address...🙄 Anyways then the media anchor who has zero experience says that the terrorist can see the building so he must be near .. like with... Couldn't the "counter blah blah " find out🙄🙄 Next... The acting of the deputy minister is so unreal... They could have make it realistic... It was so stupid to watch the movie where the dialogues were so lame. Kartik Aryan is better in marketing videos where he looks cool ... Not in movies... His voice modulation is so bad... All the emotions look the same 😑... So that's it...✌️ Rated 1 out of 5 stars 09/18/22 Full Review Audience Member Not as good as I would expect. Story was weak. Acting was good though. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member Poor dialogues, poor acting poor direction. Story has no direction there is no connection throughout the movie. Storyteller has tried to build emotional connection but has failed terribly. Dialogues delivery of actors is very casual and without any preparation. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member The movie tried to address a very interesting and important topic but the script was very sloppy. I am sure many actors rejected this movie after seeing the script. The director should have been smart enough to now mix a serious topic with a love story is showing the ignorance of understanding the topic in the first place. In terms of acting, more focus was given to the hairstyle of the actor than his expressions. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Why wont they depict a little realistic terrorism / hostage situation handling? People are creating Interstellar, and we have this rubbish that assumes its audience to be idiots. I want my time back. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/15/23 Full Review Read all reviews
