“There’s Ranaut, who has become the equivalent of a pre-teen storming out of the playground, carrying her bats and wickets, because the match didn’t suit her whims. In a desperate attempt to stand out (and make a statement), she’s helmed a spate of recent forgetful films, all coaxing her narcissism and arrogance. The results are evident. “

“Dhaakad is a showreel for Kangana Ranaut’s action heroine skills. Like all her post-Queen projects, she dominates nearly every one of its photogenic frames, flaunting her swift moves and desire to load a gun… She ticks off all the boxes of the poker-faced spy model… But it’s the movie that needs real rescuing.”

“Torture porn… Filled with natural-born killers who maim and slay for the heck of it, the film exists as a showcase for its heroine’s fighting spirit.”

“Ranaut is back with another female-led conquest of a male-dominated action template… Yet, by the end of Dhaakad, all the prosthetics and wigs, bombs and bullets amount to little more than an identity-less B-grade blur.”
