Dhokha Round D Corner – Review
R Madhavan and Khushali Kumar are found betraying each other with so much Dhokha Round D Corner
Directed by Kookie Gulati and produced by Bhushan Kumar mystery and suspense thriller Dhokha Round D Corner marks Khushali Kumar’s debut.
As the name suggests the film is a parable lined with lies and harsh truths in every facet and the story revolves around a couple, a terrorist and a cop.
The wife is played by Khushali Kumar named Saanchi who is either delusional or just acting as if she is. And her husband Yatharth Sinha played by R. Madhavan. The couple has a sour marriage and is on the brink of a breakup.
Another role is that of an absconded terrorist Haq Gul played by Aparshakti Khurrana who has taken Saanchi into his captivity at the couple’s residence.
Darshan Kumar plays ACP Harishchandra Malik who is a smart cop and is devising a plan to rescue Saanchi from the terrorist.
The story is a turbulent plot where it is difficult to decide who is telling the truth and who is lying and that is why it keeps the audience in the guessing mode. All of this is covered in a suspenseful narrative that is thrilling to the sight and therefore the movie is spiced-up.

However, there are a few shortcomings in the movie like the movie lacks the gripping element which is necessary to keep the audience hooked. Also, the story is seemingly lacking proper common sense since there are many flaws like why is the lady instead of being frightened at the sight of a terrorist, flirting with him and doing storytelling?
While talking about acting, R Madhavan did ok when compared to his last release Rocketry: The Nambi Effect. Khushali Kumar’s acting has got mixed reviews from critics but I personally liked her as a delusional & desirable lady.
Darshan Kumar as always justifies his role as a cop Aparshakti Khurrana has played the role of the deceiver well as he is the one who got Dhoka in Dhoka Round D Corner.
The music by T-series doesn’t require any introduction. The movie has got romantic as well as disco numbers and that adds weight to the story.
