Special Agent Agni (Kangana Ranaut) is a courageous field officer of the International Task Force, an Indian government fictional organisation. Rudraveer (Arjun Rampal), an international human trafficker and coal mafioso, and his muse Rohini (Divya Dutta) have been sent to acquire information and eventually eliminate them. When Agni finds a secret that links her to Rudraveer, things get personal.
Debutante director Razneesh Razy Ghai, who also co-wrote the narrative, works hard to break through the congestion, and the movie succeeds in it. It doesn’t waste time with unnecessary subplots or song and dance sequences, keeping the audience on the edge of their seats. The plot and writing are another USP of the film. The camerawork of Japanese cinematographer Tetsuo Nagata deserves special praise for creating a stunning world of blood and gore.
The film does not keep you waiting because it is driven by a tale that begins good but quickly becomes absurd. Despite this, it succeeds, particularly as a star vehicle for Ranaut, who looks lovely and kicks all kinds of ass. The actor plays a gender bender, and we might pause here to reflect on the sexist reality in which an action film can only star male performers.
The screen is ablaze with Kangana Ranaut. Which she does with such ferocity and audacity that you can’t take your gaze away from her, especially while she’s fighting. While we never lose sight of the fact that we’re seeing Ranaut, she thoroughly immerses herself in the part. She is the only actor we can think of who deserves their own pulpy action franchise.
Apart from her, Rampal seemed to be on a roll, adding a crazy energy and an incredible swagger to his character and even stealing certain scenes from Ranaut. As Rampal’s business partner, Divya Dutta delivers a strong performance. Sharib Hashmi and Saswata Chatterjee provide excellent assistance.
In Dhaakad, Kangana Ranaut goes all out as a badass spy and gets it off.
