Bloody Daddy Movie Review: Shahid Kapoor 2023

Bloody Daddy is a movie available on JioCinema that tries to recreate the 2011 French thriller Nuit Blanche. It has a lot of violent scenes, many deaths, and well-choreographed gunfights and fights. However, it falls short of being an outstanding action film.

The movie looks visually impressive, but that doesn’t make up for its lack of substance. It struggles with becoming repetitive, and the action scenes feel too predictable to be truly exciting. The numerous plot twists and turns also feel forced and don’t add much to the overall experience.

Bloody Daddy, a remake of the French flick Sleepless Night (2011), serves up a dose of average dialogues and lackluster action scenes, leaving us craving for more depth and excitement. Even Shahid Kapoor’s heroic screen presence couldn’t save the day as he disappoints in the acting department this time. Perhaps it’s time for him to break free from the brooding, fight-picking, and eccentric roles he’s been taking on lately. We’ve had our fill of that crazy streak in Kabir Singh, Jersey, and Farzi. So, when Bloody Daddy came along with the same old stuff, it didn’t exactly roll out the red carpet of anticipation.

The movie kicks off with our fearless protagonist engaging in a daring drug heist in Delhi’s Connaught Place, leaving one unfortunate soul dead. The stolen bag contains a whopping 500 million rupees’ worth of cocaine.

From there, the action unfolds over the course of a single day. Sikandar Chaudhry (Ronit Roy), a drug dealer who owns the bag, kidnaps Sumair’s son Atharv (Sartaaj Kakkar) in retaliation and holds him captive in a luxurious hotel in Gurugram.

As Sumair embarks on a mission to rescue his son, he soon realizes that Sikandar isn’t his only adversary. Two undercover cops, Sameer (Rajeev Khandelwal) and Aditi (Diana Penty), are hot on his trail for reasons that initially remain unclear.

If dealing with these two wasn’t challenging enough, Sumair crosses paths with a gangster named Hameed (Sanjay Kapoor), who arrives at the hotel with claims to the stolen bag of cocaine. The problem? Sumair has lost track of its whereabouts.

Amidst all the chaos, Sumair desperately searches for the missing cocaine and his kidnapped son. Meanwhile, the hotel guests are enjoying themselves without a care in the world, as the recent end of the second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic has lifted the lockdown restrictions. However, Sumair’s sole focus remains on rescuing Atharv.

Bloody Daddy combines music and mayhem, with bloodshed unfolding to the rhythm of background songs. But even when it’s Badshah’s turn to unleash his vocal talents, the performance is rudely interrupted by a sudden power outage.

I had such high hopes for the casting in this film, but boy, was I disappointed! It feels like every single actor has been reduced to a mere sidekick, without getting a chance to showcase their true acting prowess. Ronit Roy, who usually mesmerizes on screen, seems to be caught in a limbo between playing a good cop or a bad cop. And poor Rajeev Khandelwal, bless his heart, struggles to look convincing in the action sequences. It’s like he’s one step away from shouting, “Cut! Can we try that again?”

Then there’s Sanjay Kapoor, who swoops in as a stylized villain, only to vanish into thin air once his part is over. Talk about an exit stage left! Ankur Bhatia and Vivaan Bhatena, as the bad guys, do a decent job, but let’s be real, they’re given so little to do, it’s like they’re playing a never-ending game of hide and seek.

But amidst this male-dominated cast, we have Diana Penty, holding her ground like a true champ. She brings a calm and balanced energy to the chaos unfolding on screen. Kudos to her for not going overboard and giving us a breath of fresh air. And can we take a moment to appreciate the young boy who plays Shahid’s onscreen son, Atharva? He’s a shining star in this sea of disappointments.

Now, let’s talk about the biggest joke of Bloody Daddy – the title itself. After each action sequence, Shahid and Rajeev’s characters are covered in bloodstains, right? But hold up, the next moment, it’s like they stepped into a magical laundry machine because poof! All the blood is gone. It’s as if they have a personal stylist on standby to ensure their faces and clothes are spotless for the next round of action. Talk about continuity breaks that are harder to digest than stale popcorn!

So, my friends, if you’re craving some Shahid Kapoor action and stunts, Bloody Daddy might keep you hooked for the sheer thrill. But beware of falling into the trap of its own clichés and tropes. Grab your popcorn, stream it on Jio Cinemas, and get ready for a rollercoaster ride that’s equal parts engaging and head-scratching.
