The trailer of Sridevi's daughter Jahnvi Kapoor's debut and Shahid Kapoor's brother, Ishaan Khattar's commercial debut film Dhadak just dropped in today. The two starlets had already kept us excited with their off-screen chemistry. With a cute on-screen presence as well, the trailer of Dhadak promised a typical Bollywood romance.
For starters, the film shows a rich daughter of a politician, Parthvi, played by Jahnvi and a poor boy, Madhukar aka Madhu played by Ishaan Khattar fall for each other. There is the initial nok-jhok, the aankh-micholi, and the cute and sweet young love all around.
But as can be understood in the trailer, the girl's father will turn the villain. So the powerful politician, played by Ashutosh Rana, will use his position to jail the boy madly in love, keep the girl locked in a room until she runs and saves her love.
In fact, they even elope.
So would this be a regular love-story, where the two will elope, get married, live happily, but would finally have their happily ever after by reconciling with their family? Well, most likely no.
The film is the remake of the Marathi film Sairat. The film has been remade in a number of languages already like Punjabi, Kannada, Oriya and even Bangladeshi Bengali. And if you have already seen Sairat, you will know what might follow beneath the seemingly happy and fun film. Expect a dark undertone beneath the mirth and glee of adolescent love.
Well, Sairat dealt with the evil that is still prevalent in the society- that of caste differences. Like Nagraj Manjule's debut film Fandry, Sairat too showed how the differences based on caste can take a very grave turn.
And if Dhadak follows Sairat, which it will because it is the official remake of the film, it will be about honour killing. In the original film, the parents of the girl kill the two and the film ends in with their son seeing his parents hacked to death in a gruesome way!
Well, we have to wait till 20th of July to see if Dhadak will have the same ending! Check out the trailer of Dhadak here:
