Tadap Movie Review
- Movie: Tadap
- Director: Milan Luthria
- Cast: Ahan Shetty, Tara Sutaria, Saurabh Shukla, Kumud Mishra
- Rating: 3.5 out of 5
The film Tadap, directed by Milan Luthria, is a Hindi remake of the superhit Telugu film RX 100. Ishana (debutant Ahan Shetty) and Ramisa (Tara Sutaria) meet in Mussoorie, with the worldly-wise lass pursuing the buff guy till the inevitable happens. Damodar Nautyal (Kumud Mishra), Ramisa’s indulgent but strict MLA father, can’t stand his family reputation being tarnished by his right hand man Daddy’s (Saurabh Shukla) adopted kid, no matter how amiable he is. Ishana doesn’t appear to have a stable employment, but he’s keen to discuss marriage after falling head over heals in love with the drool-worthy Ramisa.
Though the yo-yoing of the clock can be a little difficult to wrap your head around, the Milan Luthria directed film spans three years in the lives of the young romantics. Tadap is a wonderful launch pad for Ahan Shetty (son of Suniel Shetty): the ‘local darling’ gets to showcase his angry young man attitude and his muscular torso is a sight for sore eyes, and for a novice, he is very self-assured and has a dominating on-screen presence.
Tara Sutaria, while being a newcomer to the industry with only three films under her belt, is a confident performer who is picture-perfect for her role. She deserves praise for taking on a risky role that many other Bollywood actresses would have shied away from.
The story will give you a shock in the second half if you haven’t seen the original film which this is a remake of. The cherry on the cake of this film starts in the second half and then will keep you hooked throughout and you’ll be at the edge of your seat for all the twists and turns. The USP of Tadap is the performances by the brilliant actors. Ahan keeps his intriguing and fierce look throughout the film which makes it more interesting.
As every great love story needs a villain, I guess, even if here it comes in the form of an unexpected modern day beauty with a penchant for the high life.
If you haven’t seen the original, the poisonous love story in the second part of the film will shock you. The plot’s twists and turns appear complicated, and in an effort to kindly throw the focus on one of the characters, the other’s character suffers as a result. The makers may be attempting to wash their hands of the one-dimensional representation of a man’s blood-soaked narrative of one-sided desire by claiming the movie is based on a real person’s life. Tadap, on the other hand, benefits from sincere performances all around, particularly from the key actors, as well as some excellent dialogue. If only the female character had been given more screen time.
But, we suppose, every great love story needs a villain, even if it’s in the guise of an unexpected modern-day beauty with a taste for the finer things in life.
Tadap Movie Review : Summary
In a nutshell, Tadap is a tragic love story with profound passions. Tadap is the kind of love story we thought we’d forgotten about in the 1990s, but it’s back with a fury with plenty of songs which will actually stay with you for a longer period.
