Kangana Ranaut in Dhaakad delivers exactly what was promised: a high-octane, high-decibel action thriller.
The film doesn’t make you wait: as it is driven by a story that starts off well but gets a bit preposterous along the way.
Special Agent Agni (played by Ranaut) is a fearless field officer of the International Task Force, a fantasy unit of the Indian government.
She has been assigned to find information and eventually, eliminate Rudraveer (Arjun Rampal), an international human trafficker, and a coal mafioso along with his muse Rohini (Divya Dutta).
Debutante director Razneesh Razy Ghai, who has co-written the story, tries hard to break the clutter, and somehow, the film impresses and falters in parts.
With edge-of-the-seat moments, it doesn’t digress into needless subplots or song and dance sequences.
But the weak screenplay and a bit of a confusing narrative let the film down.
