What is the truth ? What is the lie? Who is Double crossing who? Watch Dhokha: Around the Corner discover –
What do we think?
Dhokha: round corner in D lives up to its name – with new shocks and surprises at every turn.
Aparshakti Khurana steals the show here – displaying various shades of vulnerability, desire and desperation. He emotes masterfully with his eyes. And his work on perfecting the Kashmiri accent is commendable.
He has a very busy role in Dhokha show off his acting skills. His chemistry with Khushali Kumar is also of convincing quality. Of course, there are few times when you have to suspend your disbelief to enjoy the thriller.
Khushali Kumar is believable as a sexy siren and manipulator, but in scenes requiring more emotional depth, she falls a bit short. However, Dhokha made for one good start for Khushali.
R Madhavan is reliable as always, but here Aparshakti surpasses it. Darshan Kumar is a stellar actor and his dynamic with R Madhavan keeps things interesting. The ending might seem a little corny, but overall the plot is engaging enough to keep you entertained throughout!
