Review of the movie Bloody Daddy: From shaky characters with no back stories to a flimsy premise, the movie seems to have struggled in many areas.
We are given a half-baked and boring Bloody Daddy while well-made crime dramas and films based on drug mafias have been keeping us engaged on the big screen and on streaming platforms. This Ali Abbas Zafar-directed film makes you wonder if he rushed to make it, write it, edit it, and release it, basically faltering in every aspect of filmmaking, starting with sketchy characters with absolutely no back stories, a wafer-thin plot, a screenplay that unfolds like a scattered puzzle piece, and a climax that takes no NASA brains to decode.
It has a two-hour runtime and is fast-paced and well-edited, but it never goes beyond just a chase and fight between cats and mice. The action thriller that Zafar, Aditya Basu, and Siddharth-Garima co-wrote starts off strong before quickly degenerating into a dull series of developments that doesn’t provide an exciting rush.
Overall, Bloody Daddy succumbs to its own clichés and stereotypes, yet it can keep you interested just for the pleasure of watching Shahid do action and stunts on television. Jio Cinemas is now streaming the movie.
