Ram Madhvani: 'Dhamaka' was a special milestone in my journey as filmmaker

Acclaimed filmmaker Ram Madhvani is known for his unconventional directing style . His National Award-winning biographical drama Neerja (2016) and the International Emmys-nominated crime thriller series Aarya (2020) are part of the works he’s done. Exactly a year ago, Ram caused a Dhamaka in the Indian streaming scene .

Released on Netflix last year, Dhamaka featured a career-defining performance from Kartik Aaryan as a cynical news anchor who interviews a suspected terrorist live on air. Touching on themes of hustle culture and the price of ambition, this gripping drama was shot in just 11 days during the pandemic, with 90% of the shooting happening inside a Mumbai hotel ground .

Suffused with tension, thrills and high emotions, Dhamaka received a lot of love from audiences and was both a popular and critical success.

Reminiscing about the film on its first anniversary, Ram Madhvani says, “Dhamaka was a special milestone in my journey as a filmmaker. Given the restrictions, during the pandemic , we invented a completely new method of shooting based on my 360-degree approach, sometimes using as many as 10 cameras. As Dhamaka completes one year, I would like to thank the millions of viewers who have watched and admired the film around the globe and our entire team led by Co Producer Amita Madhvani , and also thanking all our actors led by Kartik Aaryan , Amruta Subhash, Mrunal Thakur Soham Majumdar , Vikas Kumar and Vishwajeet Pradhan . And Ronnie Screwvala and the RSVP team and the team at Netflix.

Ram is presently working on ‘Aarya 3’, for which he’s the creator and co-director and co-producer and also developing a web-series based on the Jallianwala Bagh massacre.
