Tadap marks the debut of Ahan Shetty who romances Tara Sutaria in this intense love drama which released in theaters today.
Tadap tells the story of Ishana (Ahan Shetty) who falls in love with a local politician-London-returned daughter, Ramisa (Tara Sutaria). The so-called-poor-boy-meets-rich-girl story has actually dramatic twist and turn which turns out to be better than expected.

Directed by Milan Luthria, who has made films like Kacche Dhaage, Taxi No. 9211, Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai and The Dirty Picture, Tadap starts off as a typical boy-meets-girl romance. In fact nothing much changes till the first half with love blossoming followed by song and dance routine. However, it is the second half where the film gathers the steam with good writing that bounces back with more drama which unfolds, making the film an interesting watch.
The action drama suffers from unwanted scenes which could have easily been trimmed to make it more entertaining and engaging. A remake of Telugu film, RX 100, Tadap has music by Pritam but none of songs are chart bursters otherwise good to hear. The city of Mussoorie is well-captured in this Sajid Nadiawala produced film while sets are just about fine.
Coming to the performances, Ahaan Shetty makes a solid debut as he emotes expressively while at the same time, performs well in the action sequences. Tara Sutaria looks gorgeous but still needs to get a role to prove her mettle as an actor. Talents like Kumud Mishra and Saurabh Shukla leverages the film for a better watch.
Overall, Tadap has the right ingredients with strong performances, interesting plots and stunning visual. Good 3/5
