Dhokha: Round D Corner (2022) is really a movie with extraordinary visual capital. Unfortunately, this movie by Kookie Gulati has a lot of holes.
About a woman who is held captive by dangerous terrorists in an apartment. Khushalii Kumar is the one who choreographed the play which makes this movie more interesting and keeps the audience curious.
Unfortunately, the presence of big names like R. Madhavan, Aparshakti Khurana and Darshan Kumar seems less convincing. Their characters are underdeveloped, plus their backstory makes the plot even more predictable.
However, the plot twist shown in the film is quite promising and makes the audience surprised. Then how could this movie of terror invading civilians’ homes happen?
They say there is a dirty conspiracy behind this incident. For those of you curious about the plot, don’t forget to read the movie synopsis and review, only on Bacaterus!

Yaatharth Sinha (R. Madhavan) and Saanchi Sinha (Khushali Kumar) are a young couple. Having just started their life together, both are enjoying the beauty of a loving family.
Like most couples, this couple’s relationship is not always happy. Starting from a small dispute, their relationship is on the verge of breaking down.
That morning, Saanchi prepares breakfast in an unhappy mood. This woman again suggested that her husband talk to a lawyer about the divorce. It is true that this time Saachi was very tired of living with Yaatharth.
Not wanting to get involved in a bigger fight, Yaatharth decides to go to the office in a fit of rage. While focusing on the project he was holding, that morning Yaatharth was shocked by the news of a terrorist attack.
But what spooked him, the attack happened in the apartment where he lived. Even the wife became a prisoner of the terrorists. Concerned for his wife’s safety, Yaatharth rushes home and there he meets ACP Harishchandra Malik (Darshan Kumar).
The police chief says that the terrorist in his house is called Haq Riyaz Gul (Aparshakti Khurana). This man is known as a trained and insane terrorist. The police are worried that this man will do something reckless with Saanchi Sinha.
Yaatharth is also worried about his wife because Saanchi is said to have a mental disorder and can get mad at any time. Yaatharth also asked the police to enter the apartment or discuss with Gul. The reason is that the wife has to take medicine to prevent the disease from recurring.
Inside the apartment, Saanchi Sinha looks so calm, he even asks Gul to kill him. Saanchi’s words made Gul wonder, how could this woman not be afraid of having a gun pointed at her head.
Saanchi Sinha says she would rather die than live with her husband. She said that her husband had an affair with her psychologist. They even gave him drugs that made him throw tantrums and behave out of control.
Not only that, Saanchi is really a charming woman who is good at manipulating Gul. Saanchi teases the guy and says he wants to run away with him.
After planning, Gul pretends to take Saanchi as a Prisoner. However, his trick failed because the police were too careful to bring him back to Gul’s custody. Inside the apartment, Gul felt angry. However, the second time Saachi managed to manipulate him.
They plan to escape again, and Gul even asks the police to prepare a car and money for him. But when Yaatharth delivered the money, gunfire was heard from inside.
Saanchi Sinha was found dead in a pool of blood in her husband’s arms. Gul looks scared and says he is not the culprit but Yaatharth Sinha shot him.
On the other hand, ACP Harishchandra Malik calmly removed the terrorist Haq Riyaz Gul from the scene. Strangely, this man said something to Gul and smiled happily. Even Yaatharth Sinha looks very calm despite having just lost his wife.
Actually what happened between them? Is there really a conspiracy behind Saachi Sinha’s death?
Dhokha: Round D Corner movie review
Unique premise but unsatisfactory plot
Talking about the premise, frankly Dhokha: Round D Corner (2022) is a new nuance that I rarely find in Indian films. The story of an armed terrorist’s home invasion, it turns out, isn’t just about the authorities’ escape.
There are two unexpected plots, that is, the sheriff has an affair with the victim and the husband wants his wife dead. You can imagine that this premise is really extraordinary and has a surprising backstory, right?
Unfortunately, the conveyed plot feels empty because Kookie Gulati has forgotten the small details. Call it a way of connecting the stories of these four characters into one. Kookie Gulati exaggerates Gul with his various ambiguous desires.
I also think, there is no compelling reason why Gul should be in this mess. Not to mention the background story of how the relationship between Yaatharth and Saanchi has been damaged. It would have been better if the psychological character was given more stage.
The combination of three men with one woman should have been an enjoyable “D Corner”, but the wrong timeline caused the plot to fail.
Khushali Kumar and Aparshakti Khurana became saviors
Having a complicated plot, Dhokha: Round D Corner (2022) almost turned into a disaster. Luckily, this movie by Kookie Gulati was saved by Khushali Kumar and Aparshakti Khurana. Both play fantasy characters, Saanchi and Gul are two of the most interesting characters to follow.
Saanchi is a beautiful, graceful woman who seems to be very brave. He is capable of manipulating anyone, even Gul managed to trick him twice. On the other hand, Saanchi is a woman who is tricked and manipulated by her husband.
Meanwhile, Haq Riyaz Gul played by Aparshakti Khurana is a mad and delusional terrorist. It can be said that Gul is a character similar to Saanchi, only he is more vulnerable and out of control. Therefore, this man can be controlled by the police and Saanchi very easily.
However, the story of Saanchi and Gul is much more fascinating, because the real thrill comes from themselves. The story of the love and sacrifice of both is more interesting than the story of the husband and the police outside the apartment.
When he first debuted, Khushali Kumar looked very promising. He has managed to create strong chemistry with his three main actors, but his strongest relationship is with Aparshakti Khurana.
Without this couple, I don’t think this movie could have been saved. Khushali Kumar and Aparshakti Khurana are the most promising main producers and bring this film to life.
Cinematography is uninteresting, bad and flat
Like I said, the story line is a bit messy and less stressful. This is exacerbated by the way Kookie Gulati works with it. I will not lie, the work on it is very frivolous and mundane. You can see that this movie was made with a very small budget.
Even so, I like the story of Yaatharth and Saanchi’s family presented in an opening song. We can see what stages this couple went through until the wife asked for a divorce.
But what made me laugh, I think being locked in an apartment means that this happens at least on the 3rd or 5th floor. In fact, this confinement takes place on the 2nd floor, which can be considered as the floor. ground floor of an apartment, where the police would have no problem taking down a terrorist.
As for the cinematography, the footage was very flat and there were no images that surprised me. The camera angles are given at a mediocre level, the scoring is not interesting and the dubbing is sometimes slow. Indeed, there are no exaggerated hero scenes, practically everything seems amateurish.
Produced by T-Series Films, Dhokha: Round D Corner (2022) really has huge potential. It’s a pity that it seems that this movie is made in such a simple way that it cannot convey the important points in this movie. Even so, Khushali Kumar’s performance saved this film from destruction.
