With Dhamaka, which will be released on Netflix, Kartik Aaryan will make his OTT debut. The film is directed by Ram Madhvani and is an action thriller. The film is based on the Korean film The Terror Live, which was released in 2013.
Kartik will play Arjun Pathak, a journalist with Bharosa TV who receives a threat after conducting an exclusive interview with a terrorist. The attacker had detonated a bomb on a bridge. When a terrorist contacts him with a bomb threat, he is granted another chance to go live on prime-time television, according to the synopsis. He has no idea that this phone conversation will change his life and put him into a fast-paced game of deception, compelling him to choose between his future profession and his humanitarian side.
A new mood video featuring Kartik in an intense mood was presented during Tudum, Netflix’s global fan event. This has piqued the interest of fans, who are eagerly anticipating the film’s premiere on the OTT platform.
Apart from Kartik, Mrunal Thakur and Amruta Subhash play important roles in the film. Netflix has not yet set a release date.
