Dahaad Review: Sonakshi Sinha is looking for the serial killer of 29 girls

Dahaad Review: Sonakshi Sinha is looking for the serial killer of 29 girls, ‘Dahaad’ slowed down due to loose suspense

28 June 2023 by thefilmfact.com

New Delhi. Sonakshi Sinha has made her entry on OTT with Amazon Prime’s web series ‘Dahad’. Sonakshi has appeared in the character of ‘Lady Singham’ i.e. Policewoman in this series. Produced by Zoya Akhtar and Reema Kagti and directed by Reema Kagti and Ruchika Oberoi, this web series tells the story of a serial killer who is killing girls. Actor Vijay Verma has been seen in the avatar of this serial killer. This web series of 8 episodes has been released and let us tell you how this series is.

Story: This story is set in Mandawa, Rajasthan, where a brother comes to write a missing report of his sister. Meanwhile, a case of love-jihad has also come to the fore as Thakur’s girl eloped with a Muslim boy. Police gets involved in this high-profile case and taking advantage of this, this brother also tells the police that his sister has also eloped with a Muslim boy. The police starts searching for this girl and while searching for this one girl, the police come to know that not one or two but many such girls have run away from their homes and later the news of their suicide by consuming cyanide comes to the fore. Is. A total of 29 girls have died in the same pattern and gradually it is revealed that it is not a case of suicide but of a serial killer. SI Anjali Bhati (Sonakshi Sinha) of Mandawa police station is investigating all these cases. Her partner Pargi (Sohum Shah) doesn’t like her much, while Anjali’s station in-charge Devi Lal Singh (Gulshan Devaiah) keeps a soft corner on her and therefore gives all urgent cases to her.

‘Dahad’ has been jointly produced by Reema Kagti and Zoya Akhtar.

8 episode serial killer
‘Dahad’ is made in 8 episodes and each episode is of about 55 or 56 minutes. From the beginning, in 2 episodes, it seems that the matter is groping for the Hindu-Muslim love angle and the ‘love-jihad’ angle, but from the third episode, the whole story turns towards the serial killer. In this case of love-jihad and serial killers, talks have also been kept on the caste system in between. Even Anjali Bhati, who belongs to a small caste, is living by changing her surname. In the initial episodes, the story is cooking, the characters are flourishing, so the speed between these opening layers seems good. But from the 4th episode to the 8th episode, the story is just going round and round, the layers of suspense are reduced. Right from the beginning you know who the serial killer is, how he is working, so there is nothing like suspense or thrill. Rather, many times I feel sorry for the police that what they are doing.

Vijay Verma has once again played a negative shade after ‘Darlings’.

The biggest weakness of this series is its half-baked character. The journey of any character is not visible from beginning to end. In the first scene, Sonakshi standing tall wearing a pressed dress is seen in the same avatar till the last scene. There is no emotional journey of this character, which you can connect with. But it is not with the character of Sonakshi alone. Rather, the writer has not bothered to reveal the layers of any character. For example, why is Pargi (Sohum Shah) who himself is facing demotion for taking bribe, not happy about his wife getting pregnant for the first time? In the logic of this, he says, ‘The world is so useless, what kind of people are here. In such a situation where how to give birth to a child. There are many such scenes of the show which are unresolved or incomplete. The whole police station is saying Sonakshi Bhati sir, but there is a person who burns something and smokes as soon as he comes out.

Many metaphors have been used in the story of this serial killer. Under this, dowry, the family pressurizing the girls to marry, is a precise attack on the people proving them a burden. But all this is on the side which you will understand, but after all how will Anand Swarnakar be caught, you will have to wait for 8 episodes i.e. 8 hours which becomes a bit cumbersome. I think that if this story was tightened in 6 episodes instead of 8, then this series could have been even more intense. Another complaint I have with this story set in Rajasthani background is the ‘language’. Sonakshi’s Marwadi seems like Haryanvi again and again. The language of the rest of the artists also stumbles again and again. Vijay Verma has done the most fine work in the matter of dialect in the entire series.

Sonakshi has appeared in the role of a police officer in this series.

In fact, in the series, actors like Gulshan Devaiah, Sohum Shah, Vijay Verma have not been used to the level where they can do something new or amazing. Gulshan Devaiah, who himself played the role of a serial killer in the web series ‘Duranga’, keeps listening to Anjali’s theories in this series. Anjali, who is repeatedly being discriminated on the basis of caste, but she herself in her police station shouts at her senior Devi Lal, she calls Pargi by name. All these aspects of the story make it very weak. With this first ‘dahad’ on OTT, Sonakshi could give a speed to her slow career. But this ‘Roar’ could not bring any new style or aspect of him on the screen. This ‘roar’ did not resonate as much as it should have.
