Tadap Movie Review

3 / 5.0

Tadap is a romantic action thriller written by Rajat Arora and directed by Milan Luthria. It is the remake of the hit Telugu film RX 100. Sajid Nadiadwala produced the film in association with Fox Star Studios. Aahan Shetty, Tara Sutaria, Saurabh Shukla, Kumud Mishra, and Sumit Gulati are cast in Tadap. Ragul Dharuman handled the camera and editing is by Rajesh G Pandey. John Stewart Eduri composed the score, and Pritam composed the songs.

Plot

Ishana is a youngster from Mussoorie. He falls in love with Ramisa, the daughter of a politician. Ramisa is a London-return girl. Both were in love and enjoying their romantic life until their families knew about their relationship. Soon, they get separated. Ishana comes to know that Ramisa had never loved him but used him for her purpose. Soon, he becomes aggressive, as he was cheated. What happens next? The rest of the story deals with it.

 Star Performance

Ahan is impressive in his debut. Yet, the makers shouldn't have over projected him as a romantic-action hero. Tara is good with her performance. Saurabh Shukla is impressive as Daddy, Ishana's father. The rest of the stars are okayish with the given roles.

Analysis

The film is a genuine remake of the Telugu version. Yet, if the writing had been better, the audience would have connected well in some emotional scenes. Ahan has done an excellent job as a debutant. The casting team has done a good job in picking up senior stars like Saurabh Shukla. The dialogues given for Ahan should have been a bit light. The heavy dialogues didn't match the story. The second half comes with twists and turns. The action scenes are well-choreographed, and the hero is neat in stunt sequences.

What's There?

  • The performance of the stars are neat
  • The second half comes with surprise elements

What's Not There?

  • The writing should have been better

Verdict

Although the film has a few drawbacks, the artists' performances and the technical values are much impressive. Tadap, the commercial cinema, is watchable once!
