Rohit Vats | Hindustan Times: 2.5/5
Janhvi Kapoor, Ishaan Khatter’s film doesn’t go beyond the obvious. Set in Udaipur of Rajasthan, Dhadak barely touches the depths of caste politics ... Full Review

Rachit Gupta | Times of India: 3.5/5
With all its strengths and weaknesses, Dhadak attempts to highlight some shocking truths about our society and for that it makes a worthy watch ... Full Review

Shubra Gupta | The Indian Express: 1.5/5
The Ishaan Khatter and Janhvi Kapoor film has neither requisite drama nor authenticity. Dhadak doesn’t work, not as an official copy of Sairat, nor as a standalone Bollywood romance ... Full Review

Rajeev Masand | News18: 2.5/5
Dhadak is ultimately a homogenous Karan Johar production that offers comfort in the familiar...for those seeking it. For the rest of us, it’s just baffling why the folks involved would choose to remake a film about the horrors of caste supremacy, but erase practically every mention of caste from the film ... Full Review

Saibal Chatterjee | NDTV: 2/5
Janhvi Kapoor And Ishaan Khatter Can't Enliven Comatose Film. The film gets neither the love story nor the socio-political context of Sairat right ... Full Review

Sukanya Verma | Rediff: 2/5
As a remake of Sairat, Dhadak is a travesty. As a standalone, Dhadak is standard Bollywood boy-meets-girl drivel. As a showcase, Dhadak is a promise that will take some more effort to fully fulfil ... Full Review

Anna MM Vetticad | FirstPost: 1.5/5
Janhvi-Ishaan are so-so in an insipid Sairat remake that is afraid to discuss caste ... Full Review

Samrudhi Ghosh | India Today: 2/5
With everything so glossed up, the climax does not hit you as hard as the original, even though it is literally delivered with a thud. If you are satisfied with a pale, insipid version of Sairat, go watch Dhadak ... Full Review

Rohit Bhatnagar | Deccan Chronicle: 2.5/5
The Shashank Khaitan directorial might be a much anticipated film of the season, but it is nothing more than a launchpad for two star kids ... Full Review

Anupama Chopra | Film Companion: 2.5/5
Director Shashank Khaitan remakes Nagraj Manjule’s landmark 2016 film but those of us who’ve enjoyed the richer, more gutting experience will have a hard time making peace ... Full Review

Shibaji Roychoudhury | Times Now News: 4/5
Overall Dhadak is an excellent piece of filmmaking with captivating performances from Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter. It is Bollywood commercial cinema at its best ... Full Review

Ankita Chakravarti | Zee News: 3.5/5
Above all the Janhvi-Ishaan starrer makes for a good romantic watch which definitely has its own flaws but the film would be relished more if it is approached like a new film without any biases and comparisons in mind ... Full Review

Shalu Singh | India TV: 2.5/5
Janhvi Kapoor, Ishaan Khatter's forbidden love saga lacks soul and it's not Sairat, film has omitted the social aspect. A typical Bollywood remake of Sairat, don't call it Hindi adaptation ... Full Review

Nandini Ramnath | Scroll: 3/5
This watchable remake stands on its own but lacks the punch of the original ... Full Review
