‘Dhaakad’ Teaser Revives Memories Of Hollywood Flick: Lara Croft: Tomb Raider

The 45-second Dhaakad teaser full of blazing fire, bloodshed and gunshots has been released online by the film makers, last Friday. And those who have seen Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, they cannot refuse to acknowledge the similarities between both.

Dhaakad is helmed by Razneesh ‘Razy’ Ghai’. He is the same person who co-founded VH1 in India and at present he is associated with Asylum Films, who are the producers for Dhaakad in collaboration with Sohel Maklai Productions. Qyuki Digital Media is also a party when it comes to producing the film.

Coming back to Dhaakad teaser details. It begins with a shot of construction site and animated water and bloodshed, which is right when Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut enters the scene with a machine-gun. The blazing fires are a major attraction in this 45-second teaser.

Kangana gets right into the action, when she begins firing with the machine gun in her hand. Following which she could be seen tasting blood from her face. Razneesh’s direction sure appears to be interesting for sure and has left us all wondering what more we will get to see when the movie arrives on our nearby silver screens. The director has also presented the Dhaakad logo in the form of flames, which has left us all curious.

Have a look at the teaser below:

It’s story writing is done by the Trio: Razy Ghai, Chintan Gandhi and Rinish Ravindra. While screenplay is done by the director himself with Ritesh Shah also accompanying him on the job.

Dialogues are penned by the Ritesh Shah and the movie is set for a Diwali release next year. The film will compete with Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan starrer: Lal Singh Chaddha a Bollywood version of Tom Hanks: Forrest Grump.

Both these flicks are inspired by two different Hollywood flicks. While one is an official remake and other is copying the idea in anonymous mode, it remains to be seen that this is an intentional doing or just a mistake. But with social media giving even the regional cinema a global platform such mistakes cannot be done without the fear of being caught.
