Sairat remake Dhadak fails to match the original chartbuster. B-town celebs are all praises, but twitterati is not pleased with Janhvi Kapoor-Ishaan Khatter starrer Dhadak.
The much awaited and talked about film ‘Dhadak’ has finally released. Karan Johar produced and Shashank Khaitan directed movie has introduced two starchildren to Bollywood—Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter. Now, the pressure of belonging to influential filmy families plus helming the remake of a National Award winner movie is not easy. We are sure Janhvi and Ishaan can vouch for that!
Previously in an interview Janhvi confessed that she feels bullied because of the family she belongs to and wishes that fans would give her a chance.
While Bollywood is praising the critically acclaimed Marathi film Sairat’sHindi remake, twitterati have had a mixed experience.

However, the twitterrati have a different tale to tell.
Many have called the film a cheap knock off of the Marathi masterpiece ‘Sairat’. Some have even accused ‘Dhadak’ for using the tested poor versus rich angle in the ‘Romeo and Juliet’ fashion. Whereas mostly fans of the Marathi film are disappointed that the central conflict of ‘Sairat’ was not present in ‘Dhadak’. But some have praised the film and congratulated the actors on their stellar acting.
Sakit hati!! They just recently got married,have 1 kid and their own house her brother no feeling ke?? Kill her husband and her son just like that this story exactly like romeo and juliet 😭😭 #Dhadak

#DhadakReview Comparisons are bound to happen when @KaranJohar takes the rustic #Sairat and remakes into a glossy #Dhadak. In finality, it has all the grandeur befitting a @DharmaMovies film. #dhadakmovie | #Bollywood | #BollywoodMovie | #JanhviKapoor | #IshaanKhattar

Remember one thing. It’s sin to touch some Masterpieces and #Sairat was one of ‘em. There’s no reality in the movie. The only thing you can see in the movie was introducing the late Sridevi’s daughter to the industry. And to do that, they’ve remaked the classic. #DhadakReview

Guys plz avoid watching #Dhadak in theater. It's a wast of time and money. Flagship bearer of nepotism @karanjohar should be taught a lesson that you cannot ruin a masterpiece just to launch some star kids.!

Just came back after watching the movie I've been waiting for the longest time. The first half of the movie is not engaging enough although the second half is interesting! #IshaanKhatter is brilliant in the movie & #JahnviKapoor is great as well. A decent weekend watch #Dhadak

See sairat and you will be wowed by everything in the movie. See dhadak and you will realise what a waste of money!

A predictable crap packaged so that a bunch of braindead socialmedia upstarts can create a halo as if Bollywood has found Sridevi's replacement in her non-actor daughter#DhadakReview

If Dhadak earns more money than Sairat, talent loses to money

Clearly, ‘Sairat’ remake ‘Dhadak’ has garnered mixed reviews from the audiences.
Now let us crunch numbers. As per trade analyst Taran Adarsh, Dhadak has released in 2,235 screens in India and 556 screens overseas, including Pakistan. Reportedly, ‘Dhadak’ has received nearly full occupancy with 90% pan India. The movie opened the strongest in the states of Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh and Bihar.
According to several trade analysts ‘Dhadak’ is expected to do well in its first weekend as no major Hindi or English movies pose any threat to the remake. ‘Dhadak’ is expected to mint over Rs 25 crore on the box office during this weekend.
However, as per trade expert Akshaye Rathi the movie’s box office collection may suffer when Marvel’s ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’ hits the theatres and if the rain continues to persists.
