Dharam Sankat Mein Movie Review – Rajeev Masand, Taran Adarsh and more!


Dharam Sankat Mein Movie Review – Rajeev Masand, Taran Adarsh: A new film is introduced this week, which will let the audience distinguish the religions in many different ways. On the concept of religion and belief, there were already few films produced in the last few years such as “Oh My God” and “PK”. Even though, these movies did an outstanding Box Office business (domestically).

This niche has attracted the attention of many directors & producers from the industry, and everyone sees it like a business opportunity. Another new film is released today called “Dharam Sanket Mein” (religion in danger).

Would the movie do the same business as its predecessor did? The truth about religion is present in a more entertaining way. Let’s see how the movie performed!

Story Line

The film stays in Ahmedabad where Dharampal Trivedi (Paresh Rawal) lives who is a Hindu. He lives with his mother, their life goes pretty smooth on the line. But everything changes when Dharampal’s mother dies. One day, he is in need of some cash, he goes to the bank locker where he got to know about this true religion. He belongs to a Muslim family, he had been adopted from an orphanage.

After knowing about the truth, he tells nobody about this, not even his own family. He, then, confronted by some Muslims and Hindus like Nazim Ali Shah Khan Bahadur (Anu Kapoor), sometimes Neelanand Baba (Naseeruddin Shah). How he solves the implication of himself being a Hindu or Muslim? This is what the movie focuses on!

The cool part of the story is that it contains some well performed sequences in comedy as well as drama. You will die laughing at some scenes. The cinematography is done very well with the director’s team. The character of Neelanand Baba is much funnier than of Dharampla or Nazin Ali.


The movie observes perfect comic timings by Paresh Rawal, and his acting is fabulous. At the same time, you will see Anu Kapoor speaking Urdu often times, which will sometimes get you start scratching your head. As said above, Naseeruddin Shah is playing a funny character in Dharam Sankat and probably the one which could have been improved a little bit.


Fawad Khan has recreated the entire story with his skills. He tried to present movie in a different way from previous releases. And ended up making an above average movie, which would definitely worth the money. The film has an emotional touch. Whether story wise or direction wise, it deserves an applause.

What’s Hot & What’s Not

The film’s dialogues are quite interesting to listen, sometimes you will see Anu using some hard Urdu words which you probably wouldn’t have heard before, some of them are Gusalkhana, Jahil, Fitnagiri, Iljam, Istkabal, Tasreef etc. At the other end, you will see Neelanand Baba speaking a dialogue “Tum Mujhe Jehar Do, Mai Tumhe Aanand Dunga”. You will laugh at some scenes, even after it passes, you will turn back and laugh harder.

The film starts looking harder at you after a specific period of time. Especially the songs will distract from the actual story, as many songs are used than usual, and it definitely did hard to the viewer experience. Though it is a remake of ‘The Infidel’, a Hollywood movie based on the similar concept. And Fawad Khan tried his best to recreate it, and ended up making an above average movie as told earlier.

Few movies like Oh My God, etc. are already released in the market, but this would be a different approach to the audience and they’d love to see it.
