Movie Review: Dhadak (2018)

★★★☆☆
Box Office: Hit

Set in the picturesque city of Udaipur, Dhadak is the story of Madhukar, the 20-year-old son of a lakeside restaurant owner, and the 19-year-old daughter of Udaipur’s renowned politician, Parthavi. Madhukar’s infatuation for Parthavi was all one-sided until they come face-to-face at a village fair. From the moment they set eyes on each other, Madhukar and Parthavi feel something familiar, something pure.

Despite the warnings from their respective families, they both fall in love. But as their love blossoms, so do their problems. Torn between society and their families, their fate becomes uncertain. Dhadak is a simple, passionate story about first love.
