Kartik Aaryan leads an explosive show in 'Dhamaka' trailer
Netflix India released the trailer for Kartik Aaryan's much-awaited thriller Dhamaka today and we are truly blown away! Featuring Aaryan as a disgraced television news anchor who receives a tip-off about a bomb blast in Mumbai, the Ram Madhvani directorial focuses on modern-day corrupt news reporting, the greed of attaining high TRPs, and a lot of thrill. Here's a breakdown of the trailer.
The clip begins with Aaryan's Arjun Pathak conducting a radio show where a caller tells him he will be bombing the Sea Link. Pathak naturally thinks it is a joke until an actual blast rocks the city. With the power of the scoop with him, Pathak demands his Prime Time seat to be returned and finds him back on the seat to glory.
But the professional gamble does not playoff well as the bomber has his cards ready. The bomber points out that Pathak and his channel must fulfill his demands otherwise he will be blowing off an entire bridge, on which Pathak's wife (Mrunal Thakur) is currently stationed to report on the incident. The booming music intensifies the blasts onscreen, creating an overwhelming feeling.
Another actor who gets a prominent mention in the trailer is Amruta Subhash, who leads the channel Bharosa 24/7 where Pathak is employed. Her line, "We don't report news. We sell it," is a direct attack on current mainstream media houses. The fast pace and hurried camera action create a sense of urgency, a feat that would really click if replicated throughout the movie.
