Meanwhile, Dr Sanjay Rudra, the CEO of SR Pharma Pvt. Ltd. and Krishna Das’s lookalike, invents a miracle drug to cure cancer. However, Sanjay dies in an accident before introducing his medicine to the market. Sanjay’s uncle brings Krishna Das in place of Sanjay to save the company. The film explores what happens next and how it changes Krishna’s life.
Vishwaksen’s performance is commendable and effortlessly fits into the commercial hero role. He shows tremendous variation for both characters, and his comedy timing is on point. The first half moves briskly, and the comedy and entertainment factor works well, especially in the scenes involving Vishwaksen, Hyper Aadi, and Jabardast Mahesh. Nivetha Pethuraj looks glamorous and has sparkling chemistry with the male lead.
However, despite the hype created around it, the second half fails to impress as the story is simple, and the twists lack conviction and appear forced. The endless twists continue until the climax, and the abrupt editing confuses the audience. The cancer drug angle is poorly handled, and the item number at the end seems misplaced. Technical aspects such as background score, cinematography, and production values are good.
Das Ka Dhamki entertains partly with a decent first half and a below-par second half. Vishwaksen shows potential as a director, but the twists needed caution and substance. The film is worth watching, but expectations should be kept in check.
