Review of Dhamaka (2021 movie)

Year of release: Nov, 2021

Director: Ram Madhvani

Producer: Ronnie Screwvala

Lead Actors: Kartik Aryan

Even though terrorist organisations voluntarily come forward to take responsibility for various terrorist attacks, Bollywood would pooh-pooh these claims and continue pushing the “Hindu terrorist” narrative.

Dhamaka is a remake of the South Korean film ‘The Terror Live’ that tells the story of a news anchor who monopolizes the live broadcast of a terrorist attack following the explosion of a bridge. Bollywood changed the plot to the story of a radio journalist witnessing the explosion of Mumbai’s Sea Link.

But guess who is the terrorist in Dhamaka? A man named “Raghuveer Mata” using the same accent you must have heard only in the profoundly Hinduphobic web series ‘Mirzapur’.

Wonder when producer Ronnie Screwvala and director Ram Madhvani saw Prabhu Ram devotees from Hindi-speaking regions masterminding terrorist attacks in Mumbai. Do they not know that the groups that claimed responsibility for the various blasts in Mumbai (2006, 2008, 2011) were not Hindu organisations?
