The official longline states:
“When a cynical ex-TV news anchor gets an alarming call on his radio show, he sees a chance for a career comeback — but it may cost him his conscience.”
‘Dhamaka’ is based on the 2013 South Korean action-thriller, The Terror Live.
Kartik Aaryan wakes up to find his television playing a piece of news that says that he is kept under house arrest. He tries to laugh it off when suddenly, all his windows are closed and a voice on the television commands him to listen and adhere to what has been asked. There’s a digital clock ticking, indicating the time that ‘Kartik’ is left with.
The voice orders him to change his clothes and cuff himself to the chair. Next, Kartik is told to come into his role as Arjun Pathak, a journalist, and host of Bharosa 24/7. After Kartik repeats the ‘ordered’ dialogues, a bomb goes off and the fake wall comes off.
The crew member takes him to the sets of a news show, where he introduces himself as Arjun Pathak, and the lights dim.
In a first, Kartik is seen transitioning from his ‘lover boy’ roles to something more intense and mature.
