Review by: Russel D’Silva

If Bollywood has been adept at brewing our high-quality cinema that has also been big hits in a particular genre, then it must be thrillers. And among the pantheon of great thrillers that the Hindi film industry has also produced, some like Kaun and Ittefaq (the 1969 original) stand out for the way they nail that claustrophobic milieu, which heightens the tension in any plot filled with suspense.

Dhokha Round D Corner, directed by Kookie Gulati, and starring Khushalii Kumar, R Madhavan, Darshan Kumaar and Aparshakti Khurana tries something similar, but with an undercurrent of sensuality throughout. Does he also take his place in this pantheon? Well, it almost is, and it’s as pleasant a surprise as anyone could have hoped for, with a dearth of really good Bollywood since AndhaDhun. So, are you excited about what to watch this weekend or what to watch this week and wondering if Dhokha Round D Corner is worth your time? Scroll down for my full Dhokha Round D Corner movie review below…

What is it about

The facade of a happy marriage between Sanchi (Khushalii Kumar) and Sinha (R. Madhavan) crumbles when terrorist Gul (Aparshakti Khurana) enters their apartment and takes Sanchi hostage. The more Detective Malik (Darshan Kumaar) tries to resolve the situation, the more he and the audience are drawn into differing perspectives of what is really going on.

what is hot

Full credit to Kookie Gulati and Neeraj Singh for the many twists they weave into their storyline and for how none of them stray into over-the-top territory, keeping you on your toes until the very end. Another credit to Kookie Gulati for steering the heck out of this script – a narrative from multiple perspectives with the twists and turns balancing on a tightrope could so easily have fallen tails, but it weaves it all together in a taut and addictive. Of course, that wouldn’t have been possible with great performances, with Khushalii Kumar leading the way, taking a good path between sultry, vulnerable and devious, while Madhavan and Darshan Kumaar provide good support in their truncated screentime. Camera work by Amit Roy, editing by Dharmendra Sharma, and background music by Amar Mohile also combine well to enhance the mysterious atmosphere.

What is not

The biggest disappointment is Aparshakti Khurana, who tries hard but just couldn’t crack her part. Plus, the production values ​​could have been a lot better as well because they kind of derail all the good work from other departments. Some of the subplots don’t work either and only manage to slow the pace.

BL Verdict

With little to complain about, Dhokha Round D Corner is a tense, edgy, claustrophobic Bollywood thriller well done after ages, with twists that keep you guessing and performances to pack them. Definitely an engaging watch for thriller lovers. I go with 3.5 out of 5 stars.
