After months of anticipation, Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter starrer Dhadak released on Friday (July 20). The film, which marks the debut of late Sridevi and Boney Kapoor’s elder daughter in Bollywood and Khatter’s second venture, was expected to do well in box office. But a quick look through the Internet shows how many found the movie not up to the mark and in fact, wished to see Sairat again instead. Accompanying this, are the sarcastic memes and jibes on nepotism and Karan Johar’s launch-pad for star kids that have been the rounds of the micro-blogging site ever since he movie got into post-production stage.
Nevertheless, Khatter’s performance managed to garner scattered praises on the Internet, even though many happened to give a thumbs-down to the couple’s on-screen chemistry in the Shashank Khaitan directorial. Here are some of the hilarious (and equally sarcastic memes) on Dhadak doing the rounds of the Internet.

While fans were disappointed and said it failed to capture the innocence and rawness of Sairat, critics feel Dhadak doesn’t work even as a standalone Bollywood romance.
