Dhokha Movie Review

Dhokha Movie PosterDhokha is Pooja Bhatt’s third directorial venture (after Paap and Holiday). The movie tackles a serious issue that plagues our world. Dhokha brings to light the issue of terrorism that threatens life day and night and portrays the mindset of people who get influenced and involved in the criminal and cruel act.

Zaid Ahmed (Muzamil Ibrahim) is a dedicated Police officer in Mumbai known for his integrity. He was respected and looked upon high by his colleagues and community. He and his wife Sarah (Tulip Joshi) had idyllic life together and everything seemed and worked just perfect for the couple. Zaid was always under the impression that his relationship with his wife was crystal clear and believed that there was nothing unknown about each other. But one fateful day proved it all wrong.

A massive bomb blast in New Century Club, Mumbai that claimed a number of lives shattered not just his life but his belief too. His wife Sarah’s body was also found among the dead. To add to his grief and pain, the police officer (Gulshan Grover) revealed that his wife had injuries that were typical to those of fundamental suicide bombers and that she was responsible for the catastrophic bombing. Zaid was torn between his past beautiful memories with his wife and this glaring truth about his wife. He was terrified to his soul because of this deadly betrayal.

What will it be like when you realize that the one whom you share your life with and claim to know very well has a secret identity?

Dhokha speaks for no religion. For, terrorism has its own religion. It criticizes terrorism and the people who spread terror in the name of religion. Dhokha hits you right and clearly convey as to how people get influenced and turn into jehadis.

Pooja Bhatt excels as a director. She has handled the issue with utmost maturity and precision. A lot of scenes are executed with confidence that they leave a strong impact on our minds. Like the one when Zaid watches the video where his wife’s holds herself responsible for the blast. Screenplay and dialogue by Shagufta Rafique is first-rate and is influential. Cinematography is excellent.

Muzamil Ibrahim makes a great start. The debutant doesn’t let you down a bit. He delivers a terrific performance and leaves you stunning. Tulip Joshi is equally competent and her performance is commendable. Her expressions are just right and very convincing. Ashutosh Rana is ominous; effective performance delivered. Aushima Sawhney lends a good supporting hand. Anupam Kher is outstanding and carries his role with ease and consistency. Gulshan Grover’s performance is very good.

Overall, Dhokha is one of the finest and powerful product of the Bhatt’s stable. For entertainment seekers this would be a disappointment. But for those who like to have a taste of reality, this one’s the right choice. Don’t miss it.

The movie was well acted by all in it. But dealing with issue of terrorism arrising out of injustice and attaching it to Muslims only shows the hatred of anti-Muslim people and forces. They are teaching the world that they are good despite doing injustice and the affected people who retaliate are wrong in the strategy. Whereas the number of people who do such cowardly acts are not Muslims (even by names) but they are anti-Muslim fanatic forces (may they be jews, christians, hindus or atheists) and put the blame on Muslims and Islamic teachings seeing their own injustice. Thus they depict to the world that Muslims are mad people seeking heaven through such cowardly acts.

I just ask one question to the so called learned thinkers who is responsible for the suicide and time bombing in Pakistan for the last 5-6 years. Is here too Muslims were involved to kill Muslims or those forces under American umbrella who want to destablize Pakistan. Baghal mein churi moohn mein ram ram.

So please think over it. You cannot befool people by drawing one aspect of whole scenario and hide others for long. The truth always protrudes out. Islam is peaceful religion but also teaches to resist the tyrants and those who want to weaken Islam and end its propagation by all unfair means. It also teaches not to harm those who are not involved in opposing Islam.

I invite all that if you want to know reality and truth about Islam and its teachings, just go and get a valid authentic copy of the Holy Quran with translation and read it. Your mind will be clear of all doubts that have been created by anti-Islamic forces through propaganda and continuous falsehood/ lies. Be unbiased and impartial for the sake of yourself and all mankind. Love to all human kind.

Religions were made to show people light and give discipline in life. As different languages developed in different parts of the region, similarly different places had different saints and noble people.

All religions preach peacr, frin=endship and good health

The religion which means I Surrender to the will of God and which fasts for a month for betterment of mankind is one teaching love, friendship. ” Bhalaai kar, buraai se dar”.

So there is no question of who belonged to which religion. Some anti-national people make use of religious sentiments and mislead people.

Misled People do exactly as what is not told in the holy books. And this movie has put the point well. Religion is very sacred and personal attribute.

So, using it for developing hatred and violence is anti-religion. Whether Hindu, Muslims, Christains or any one who uses religious sentiments of people to gain their personal motives are sinners. They will burn in hell.

This movie is an exaggeration of issues. Such type of incidents which are shown in the movie never happens to Muslims in India if it ever happened it would be a big Minority issue. The torture of innocents of minority type of incidents happens in Pakistan over Pakistani Hindus, Sikhs and Christians. Perhaps the director and script writer have forgot that a Muslim was the president of India, the chief of all the three armed forces..

The movie justifies terrorism that if a person is victimized then it is quite clear that he would follow the path of terror. If that is true then the kashmiri Pundits would have follow terrorism.

It is just another example of Bhatt & family’s Muslim affection (since mahesh bhatt’s mother was a Muslim). But if you have affection to a special community for that reason only you should not raise sensitive issues with this much of exaggeration.

I have heard many Muslims telling that Islam is a religion of peace but why the people hate muslims.My question is, is there any religion of hate in the world. A religion is respected and judged by the activities of its followers. Because in the world of rate race the people has no time to read what is written in other religions and whether the other religions are for hate or love.
Many Muslims I have
