Immediate reaction when the end credits roll

Dangerous isn’t dangerous as a staple passionate thriller, the repeated tried and tested techniques of writer director Vikram Bhatt and Bhushan Patel is ‘dangerous’ for any other creative idea, influence to step in their school of cinema.

The Story of Dangerous


Young entrepreneur Aditya Dhanraj’s (Karan Singh Grover) life changes when his wife, Dia (Sonali Raut) gets kidnapped and what happens when his ex-lover Neha (Bipasha Basu) is sent on-ground to handle the case and find the kidnapper.

Dangerous review

Made as a movie but will be shown in episodic parts, Dangerous is a snaky mysterious whodunit fed on the staple Bhatt school of cinema diet. As far as it clicks and serves the purpose to entertain the loyal fans of the genre no harm.

Bhushan Patel (1920: Evil Returns, Ragini MMS 2, Alone – previous) narrates this tale which has its shares of predictability and known traits. A mansion, a death/missing case, a servant/maid, a cop with a past, the finger of suspicion moving from one person to another, some romance, some lust, some betrayal, some trust (as far as its rhymes it’s fun otherwise run). Fortunately, the mystery doesn’t take much time to set in the minds of the audience.

The performances are decently routine. Good to see Bipasha Basu on screen. Karan Singh Grover is nice and the chemistry between Bipasha and Karan is hot.

It’s a familiar turf for both Bhushan Patel and Vikram Bhatt and they don’t disappoint but some de noir elements would have done wonders.

Suyyash Rai makes an impression and Nitin Arora is decent. Natasha Suri makes her presence felt. Sonali Raut is fine.


Final words

Dangerous isn’t dangerous for the lovers of suspense, mystery and thrills. It’s snakingly mysterious enough with decent performances. Go for the chill, you won’t get killed.
