Billed as an action thriller, the ‘Queen’ of Bollywood, Kangana Ranaut star Dhaakad is set for release. The film directed and presented by Razneesh Razy Ghai will be released in theaters on Friday, May 20, 2022.
The already high-profile film created a lot of buzz following the release of its powerful trailer in which Kangana can be seen in full avatar action as Agent Agni performing an action sequence with excellence and confidence.
The trailer also shows the dashing Arjun Rampal as the deadliest villain Rudraveer, taking on the role of a coal mafia. The film is produced by Deepak Mukut and Sohel Maklai and holds the banners of Sohum Rockstar Entertainment, Sohel Maklai Productions and Asylum Films.
Number of Dhaakad Screens
The film is out on 2200 screens nationwide, KGF2 is already playing and another Hindi release Bhool Bhoolaiya is getting more buzz so screens are distributed accordingly.

Dhaakad Box Office Showdown
Kangana star Ranaut will face a direct clash with highly anticipated Kartik Aryan star Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2TB, which is the sequel to Khiladi Akshay Kumar’s 2007 horror comedy-drama Bhool Bhulaiyaa.
To avoid clash with other biggies like RRR, BB2 has been repeatedly postponed, however, it will eventually deal with Kangana’s action-packed thriller. Well, the hype for both movies is on par and it will be interesting to see which movie out of two can push more and more people into theaters.
The star of Kangana Ranaut, Arjun Rampal and Divya Dutta is said to be made up of a Rs. 70 to 80 Crore and in our opinion, the film must gross the gross amount of Rs. 100 Crore to be called a hit film.
Salman Khan, Ram Gopal Varma as famous names in entertainment industry are supporting the film:

Dhakkad Day 1 Prediction
Although recently released Bollywood movie films have failed to perform well at the box office except for Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri’s The Kashmir Files which brings Tsunami to the box office and crosses Rs. 30o crore , expectations are very high for Kangana’s Dhaakad.
One thing that could be a big hurdle and may affect the film’s revenue is Bhool Bhulaiyaa’s team’s ticket price reduction strategy, which is seen as a smart move by the film’s makers to incentivize more and more viewers to watch their film.
But, we can’t undermine the mighty Dhakkad, Kangana’s performance is already stealing the show and the thing is, he’s going to give the other biggie good competition. In our opinion, Dhakkad is going to witness a decent opening and can fetch some raw rupees. 8-9 crores at the box office on day 1.
Popular film critic Sumit Kadel also appreciated the response to both the movie’s trailer and also predicted a decent opening for the film.
The film was also certified A by CBFC on June 17, 2022 and will run for 2 hours, 11 minutes and 34 seconds, film critic Taran Adarsh shared on social media:
