Dhamaka isn’t a bad film – I don’t think Ram is capable of making one. But neither does it match his previous work – the brilliant Neerja and the series Aarya. Dhamaka is passable, which coming from Ram, feels like he was slumming it.

Ram Madhvani’s direction is good but the same cannot be said about the script co-written by him and which is the base of any film. Because of the weaknesses in the script, Madhvani has not been able to make a tight and taut thriller which would get the viewers on the edge of their seats. Vishal Khurana’s music and background score are fair. The background music ought to have been better. Puneet Sharma’s lyrics are alright. Manu Anand’s cinematography deserves praise. Manohar Verma’s action and stunt scenes are quite thrilling. Nidhi Rungta’s production designing and Richard Viagulam’s art direction deserve mention. Editing (Monisha R. Baldawa and Amit Karia) is quite sharp.On the whole, Dhamaka is too ordinary a fare and will, therefore, not find much appreciation.

Ratings:1/5 Review By:Shubhra Site:Indian Express

Even the worst TV channels in real life with their shrieking guests and poisonous debates have more drama than the goings-on in this fictional Bharosa 24/7. Hard to believe that this comes from Ram Madhvani, whose ‘Neerja’ and ‘Aarya’ worked so well with creating believable characters, interesting scenarios, while keeping us on the edge. Here’s a man teetering on the edge of sanity, and here’s another who is confronting his demons, and their lives are hanging by a thread. And we don’t buy a thing.

Ratings:2.5/5 Review By:Sukanya Verma Site:Rediff

I wasn’t too thrilled by the extreme turn of events of A Terror Live’s conclusion, which diluted the impact of individual tragedy for mass scale destruction. With Dhamaka in its title, the remake was hardly going to be any different.

Dhamaka may not be explosive enough to change the narrative but, it is engaging. It also dares to remind the media why they are called the fourth pillar of democracy.

Ratings:3/5 Review By:Narita Site:India Today

Kartik Aaryan does his best as Arjun Pathak. Though he gets ample scope to deliver those monologues that have become synonymous with him, simply by virtue of being a news anchor, they are not grating. Amruta Subhash as Ankita, the boss, is flawless. She owns the screen while she’s on it. Mrunal Thakur as Soumya Mehra Pathak, Arjun’s estranged wife, gets one romantic montage at the start and an emotional tugging-at-your-heartstrings scene on the bomb-affected bridge. Just not enough to decide her impact. We needed more of her.
And what we needed was a better ending. But we’ve already addressed that.

Ratings:2.5/5 Review By:Saibal Site:NDTV

The film does throw up a few tense moments and some surprises along the way but, despite what is at stake, is overall a rather tepid affair. The surface veneer of Dhamaka does not quite percolate any further.

The 104-minute minute film is packed with nervous energy, convincing visual effects and serviceable performances from the cast. Aaryan is cleverly cast as the smarmy and jaded journalist who is forced to find the spine that he didn’t know he still had. Despite going overboard in the crucial scenes, Aaryan makes the most of a largely unsympathetic character.

Ratings: Review By:GAUTAMAN BHASKARAN Site:News18

In a thriller of this sort, one does not expect any great performance, but Mrunal is expressive and interesting in portraying the joys of marriage and, later, distress as she stands on the collapsing sea link. Dhamaka is pacy, and it may seem that there is never a dull moment. But it is does go overboard with some of the scenes. Those between Arjun and Ankita hardly look plausible. Do employees behave with their bosses the way Arjun does with his? I suppose writers and directors do not care as long as they attract footfalls or eyeballs.
