Dhadak opened to mixed reviews last Friday. In his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee wrote: "Dhadak transports the story to Udaipur, gives the two principal characters new names - Madhukar Bagla (Ishaan Khatter) and Parthavi Singh (Janhvi Kapoor) - and reduces to near-irrelevance the class and caste divides that the plot of Sairat swivelled around. This takes the sting out of the film's shocking climax."
Dhadak has been produced by Karan Johar, who has launched several star kids in the past. The film broke a record, which was earlier held by Karan's film Student Of The Year.Dhadak surpassed the opening day collections of Student Of The Year, which featured Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan and Sidharth Malhotra.
Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter's Dhadak is the Hindi remake of Marathi film Sairat, which released in 2016. The film featured Rinku Rajguru and Akash Thosar.
