It is said that most female names end with vowels, while male names don’t. Trashing that trend is Tadap, where the hero, Ahan Shetty who is making his debut, is named, unusually, Ishana.
A remake of the Telugu film RX 100 (2018), Tadap is set in Mussoorie, Uttarakhand. Ishana falls head over heels (literally, with his bike gymnastics) with foreign returned Ramisa played by Tara Sutaria. A kissing montage amidst the forests lays the groundwork for some sleek action, for Ishana transforms from sad boy to bad boy, muscled, angry, and pummelling.
The Pritam-Irshad Kamil composer-lyricist duo is back with this film directed by Milan Luthria (Once Upon A Time In Mumbai, The Dirty Picture), written by Rajat Arora, and produced by Sajid Nadiadwala. Tadap releases theatrically on December 3rd.
