The movie begins with a lot of promise. But for a lack of script falls flat on its face. Despite boasting of actors of the caliber of Anupam Kher, Satish Shah, Satish Kaushik and Gulshan Grover, you can endure the movie for just 40 minutes. After that, not even the actors know what they are doing with four youngsters (Shaad Randhawa, Samir Dattani, Shama Sikander and Aarti Chhabria) screaming all over Bangkok.

The film opens with the All Asians Bhai Meet in Bangkok. The sensex of the underworld is supposedly dipping and Godfather (Jackie Shroff) is shuffling portfolios. In the bargain, the plot at Alibaug is given to Phursat Lala (Gulshan Grover) who wants to make it the best entertainment destination this side of the globe. Mungilal (Anupam Kher) is slighted because he was looking forward to that plot to build a hospital for the people of the place. A few flashbacks later, we learn that his father had died in a blast for lack of medical attention. Hence, the desire. But Godfather gives the plot to Phursat because he has an heir to take things forward but Mungilal is a bachelor. However, he lies that he has an heir and will produce him within a month at the same place.

Turns out, he had a sister who has a son. This fact is unearthed when his partner Jignesh (Satish Shah) rummages through the drawer for a letter written 25 years ago by Angoori (Bhavna Balsaver) Anupam's sister. Angoori and Mungilal had parted ways. She wrote many letters to her brother who never read them. But Jignesh did note the contents of the letters and saved them for a day like this. So begins the hunt for Kamal, Anupam's nephew.

It's really sad that director Shashi Ranjan has assembled a talented star cast and is not able to handle their talents. On the other hand, I wonder what the talented quartet saw in this film to make them sign on the dotted line. C'mon guys, use your talent to educate through films, if not entertain. It's such a powerful medium and you guys are such stalwarts of the screen. It's really sad to see you do buffoonery on screen, which has no link to a script.

TO GO OR NOT: Theres no Dhoom in this Dhadaka. It's only gloom!
