But this spark of love does not flare up immediately, they say that ‘hate is the first step of love’, this story grows like this. Jaggi tries to woo Kartika in every way possible. Director Kunal Deshmukh tries to enthrall us with love stories from the 90s, given a modern set-up as of today. However, it is a bit disturbing to see a lover surrounded by unrequited love who is obsessed with a girl. He can’t hear ‘no’. In the 90s, not only such stories were seen in abundance on the cinematic screen, but it was also celebrated on the silver screen in the form of songs and dance. ‘Shiddat’ seems very close to it. But the good thing is that writers Sridhar Raghavan and Dheeraj Ratan have given full chance to the girl in the story. She is of today’s era. is independent. Knows how to make decisions for herself. ‘Shiddat’ is an obsessive love story, which is primarily woven according to the story’s hero Jaggi. His passion is like madness and enough time has been given to take this to the hearts and minds of the audience. The first half of the film is completely focused on campus romance. There is flirt in it, there is a lot of dancing and singing. However, the one thing that keeps you in check is the curiosity as to what is going to happen next in this love story. There are not many characters in ‘Shiddat’. But whatever they are, they are well prepared. There is a lack of faith in the story of Mohit Raina and Diana Penty. He is just around the main story of the film as a support. The complication in Sunny Kaushal’s character is that he is an obsessive lover, around whom there are few boundaries. Still he gives his best to prove himself. However, his character graph is so fluctuating that it becomes difficult to believe him after some time. Radhika Madan falters in showing Kartika’s inner struggle on screen. His struggle is clearly visible. The casting of Mohit Raina in the character of Gautam is good. He plays an immigration lawyer. Diana Penty looks beautiful in her character. However, his character could have been refined a bit more. As a love story, the music by Sachin-Jigar in ‘Shiddat’ is above average. It entices you while watching the movie. Amlendu Choudhary’s cinematography also impresses. The biggest problem with ‘Shiddat’ is that while it may sound exciting on paper, it looks dragged on screen. Especially in the second half, the film feels slow. The story goes far away from reality at times and seems absurd. However, there is a suspense that keeps you hooked as a spectator. By the way, it is also a fact that in today’s era where realistic films are in trend, we rarely get to see such passionate, crazy and slightly raw love story. Shiddat may not impress you much, but it does leave an impression.
