We see a car hit another shortly after Covid’s second wave in Delhi’s Connaught Place, resulting in two individuals stealing an important bag containing cocaine worth crores. Sumair (Shahid Kapoor), one of the thieves, comes from NCB. The medications that got busted are of Sikander (Ronit Roy), the miscreant and very much like each bad guy, he captures the legend’s child to coerce NCB into returning his Cocaine.
Following Sikander’s directive to reach Dubai in Gurugram, Sumair (Shahid Kapoor) agrees to sacrifice the cocaine for his son. Sumair’s team follows him to his five-star hotel, and he now has to deal with two different groups of people before getting to his son. The basic premise is established by what transpires next and how he manages to reach his son.

To reach his son, Sumair must confront not only the criminals but also the narcotics bureau officers who are following him. The kidnapping of his son makes the high-functioning, alcoholic, rogue cop act like an assassin who can kill anyone who gets in the way.
Shahid Kapoor is on a roll with Farzi, Bloody Daddy, and now Farzi. Shahid is having more fun than any commercial Hindi film star on the OTT. The actor has clearly let go of his concerns or his status in the industry in order to unleash his wild side, which gives him the freedom to let loose. As Sumair enters wearing a black blazer resembling that of John Wick and intending to kill, you can almost hear Kabir Singh’s “Wada wao wao wao wao” in your head. Watching the actor have fun with the eccentric alpha male character is extremely satisfying. He owns every aspect of his outrageously witty but violent character, despite his diminutive stature or appearance as the attractive boy next door.
The neo-noir action thriller that Ali Abbas Zafar adapted from the 2011 French film Nuit Blanche (Sleepless Night) is a hypnotic ride from beginning to end. The entire film is centered on the delivery of drugs and a duffel bag that contains them, and it was shot during covid in a hotel in Abu Dhabi that is portrayed as Gurugram. Diana Penty and Rajeev Khandelwal, two additional police officers, are keeping an eye on Sumair’s activities and their own mission. This madness of cops vs. cops, cops vs. criminals, and criminals vs. criminals engulfs the unwitting hotel staff and guests. The story is formed by who is corrupt and who is playing the bigger game.
Similar to how you might have enjoyed Brad Pitt’s action comedy “Bullet Train” or the Coen Brothers’ distinctive dark comedies, you will enjoy Bloody Daddy. It is absurd, irrational, dramatic, and funny. You’ll be wondering why this isn’t a theatrical release due to the sharp camerawork and well-choreographed stylized action (knives, guns, fistfights, etc.). Given the covid setting, the unintentional humor is effective and contributes to the pace. The second half, on the other hand, is a little stale due to the emphasis on action over humor. Additionally, the plot is fairly predictable.
Bloody Daddy isn’t too serious about itself. It’s a brutal and brave action-crime thriller with absurd humor and no pretense.
Bloody Daddy Movie Review: Script Analysis
This is co-written by Aditya Basu and Ali Abbas Zafar, and Siddharth–Garima keeps the script’s skeleton as generic as it can get. We are not hearing the storyline that “a drug mafia kidnaps the child of the police to recover his busted drugs” for the first time. This is a one-time watch because of the difficulties Shahid’s “Bloody Daddy” faces in reaching the villain.
Ali brings back his trusted cinematographer Marcin Laskawiec (Tiger Zinda Hai, Jogi), who excels in a few action scenes, particularly one in the kitchen of the five-star hotel where Sumair uses all of the cutlery and crockery to fight the bad guys. The usual plot is pushed to its limits by the dialogue and strong acting.
Bloody Daddy Movie Review: Star Performance
This is Shahid Kapoor’s audition for the role of “Desi John Wick,” and he does very well in some areas. Despite the fact that he gets his hands bloody, his undeniable charm wants you to be with him and support him.
Ronit Roy’s wicked smile makes Black even more evil than the gray characters he plays. By playing Mr. Bajaj on television to Sikander in this one, he demonstrates his versatility as an actor by switching from being a good guy to a very good bad guy.
Despite the fact that Sanjay Kapoor only gets a small amount of screen time, he gets some of the funny lines that provide the best comedic relief amid the chaos. Rajeev Khandelwal is yet another television star who manages to strike the perfect balance between being charming and hilarious at the same time. Royal waste is Diana Penty.
Bloody Daddy Movie Review: Direction, Music
This was a project in which Ali Abbas Zafar could have bared it all, as action has been his home ground for some time. Certainly, the mid-level budget could have been a problem, but Ali limits himself.
Themes from Mission Impossible and Don 2 are interestingly combined by Julius Packiam to form an odd combination. I adored the bold decision to switch between a rap song and melancholy slow music in the same scene, but they are too few to discuss.
Bloody Daddy Movie Review: The Last Word
When everything is said and done, Shahid Kapoor’s transformation from Bollywood’s Chocolaty Boy to Bloody Daddy demonstrates how amazing an actor he has become.
