'Dhanak' Tweet Review: Nagesh Kukunoor Weaves A Heart-Warming Tale
Will Nagesh Kukunoor's directorial film be able to strike the right chord? Kriti Tulsiani from is inside the theaters to find out.

Ever since the trailer of Nagesh Kukunoor's 'Dhanak' was released, it managed to tug at the deepest corners of the heart. Starring Hetal Gadda and Krrish Chhabria as the two children, the film revolves around the lives of eight-year-old visually impaired boy Chotu and his 10-year-old sister Pari.

Pari, who had promised her younger brother that he'll be able to see before he turns 9, sets out on a magical journey with Chotu to meet their reel-life hero Shah Rukh Khan who is apparently promoting an eyes donation campaign.

Considering the fact that the film has already garnered worldwide acclaim and won several international awards, it'll be interesting to see a film being carried solely on the shoulders of two children. Will Nagesh Kukunoor's directorial film strike the right chord? Kriti Tulsiani from is inside the theater to find out.
