Netflix India has dropped the first trailer for its upcoming thriller ‘Dhamaka’ starring Kartik Aaryan who plays the main lead as a television news anchor negotiating with a terrorist. The film is set for streaming on November 19, only on Netflix.
Set in the city of Mumbai, the action-packed ‘Dhamaka’ (Translation: ‘Blast’) is based on the South Korean action-thriller ‘The Terror Live’ (2013). Ram Madhvani (‘Neerja’) directs this suspense thriller and co-writes the script with Puneet Sharma.
This remake Indian version of the Korean film follows a journalist named Arjun (Kartik Aaryan) who on his radio show gets a call from a terrorist who threatens to blow up the Bandra-Worli Sea Link. Arjun sees this as an opportunity to negotiate with the channel head to return as a news anchor, assuring high TRP. However, he finds himself in a mess when the terrorist demands him to call a minister and tell him to apologize, otherwise, he would blow up the entire Sea Link and kill everyone there, including Arjun’s wife.
Mrunal Thakur features as Soumya – Arjun’s wife, and Amruta Subhash as Ankita – the news channel head.
