Actress Sonakshi Sinha made her digital debut with Reema Kagti’s Dahaad which recently got released on Amazon Prime Video. In the crime thriller, she plays the role of a fearless police officer who set out to nab a mystery serial murderer on the loose in a small Rajasthani village. The series also features Vijay Varma, Sohum Shah and Gulshan Devaiah in lead roles. Since the show was released on OTT a few hours ago, fans who binged on it, have been sharing their reviews on Twitter and it is mostly positive.
While a section of people gave big thumbs up to Dahaad, others called it a propaganda movie. Talking about the performances, Twitterati was captivated by Vijay Varma’s powerful acting. Gulshan Devaiah and Sohum Shah were equally appealing on the screen. “Dahaad is one of the finest shows to have come out in the Indian digital space...great performances, tight script and very engaging. Must watch! @primevideoIN! #DahaadOnPrime @excelmovies @tigerbabyfilms.” Another reacted, “#VijayVarma will simply leave you spellbound.. his menacing glare is enough to make one feel scared.. a must-watch!”. “@MrVijayVarma is so scary in #Dahaad! In such a good way! I want to watch the show but I am scared of watching him at the same time,” added another.
On the other hand, some Twitter users were disappointed with the show. “Dahaad- What a Hinduphobic web series! Glorifies conversion of Hindu girls & Love Jihad openly show Hindus in the worst light possible and rest you can imagine…I was all in for complete n absolute freedom of OTT but no I think @ianuragthakur ji must look into this now!#dahaad,” stated one of the users. “Just 10 minutes into #Dahaad all the usual tropes are on display. Bollywood you are incorrigible,” read one of the comments. “An orgasm too delayed is an orgasm denied. Dahaad is a classic example of that. An interesting plot is rendered rather ineffective by an unnecessarily lengthy runtime. @MrVijayVarma, @gulshandevaiah and @s0humshah make it a bearable watch,” read another comment.
