First Impression

Bloody Daddy, a 2011 movie adaptation of Sleepless Night, has mediocre dialogue and action sequences. We receive an unfinished and boring Bloody Daddy, whereas sturdy crime series and movies featuring drug syndicates have preserved us engaged on the big screen and streaming platforms.

This Ali Abbas Zafar-directed movie makes you speculate if he surged to create, modify, and release it, lacking in each phase of filming. It has a thin story, unclear characters with no backstories, a script that unfolds like a jumbled-up puzzle, and a conclusion that anyone without NASA brains can figure out.

Story of the Movie

Bloody Daddy tells the tale of NCB agent Sumair Azad (Shahid Kapoor), who visits drug lord Sikander Choudhary (Ronit Bose Roy) at his club to deliver a bag of the drug in return for his abducted teenage son. A “bloody” fight then breaks out because things don’t go according to plan.

Sumair gets the bag back from the NCB office, but NCB shortchanges him on several levels. He gets into altercations with Sameer Singh (Rajeev Khandelwal), a senior, and Aditi Rawat (Diana Penty). The climax is obvious, and it’s easy to predict how the story will end up playing out.

Review of the Movie

It has a two-hour runtime and is fast-paced and well-edited, but it never goes beyond being a chase and fights between cats and mice. The action thriller that Zafar, Aditya Basu, and Siddharth-Garima co-wrote starts strong before quickly degenerating into a dull series of developments that doesn’t provide an exciting rush.

The shoot of the movie Bloody Daddy takes place during the Covid-19 pandemic in just 36 days. It begins with cautionary statements regarding the lockdown, second wave, unemployment, crime rate, and people accustomed to the new normal. However, aside from flimsy scenes of people in masks, testing of wedding guests, and criminals discussing how the pandemic ruined their hotel and drug operation, there is nothing of this in the screenplay.

The biggest joke in the title is that Shahid and Rajeev’s characters are always covered in blood after an action scene but are then blood-free at the next moment.


Shahid Kapoor has a winning screen presence, but his recent casting decisions—angry men—have left him wanting in the acting stakes. It might be because he chose to play irate men lately in Kabir Singh, Jersey, and Farzi.

Diana Penty isn’t too bad, and Atharva, the young actor who portrays Shahid’s on-screen son, is excellent and novel.

Ronit Roy, Rajeev Khandelwal, Sanjay Kapoor, Ankur Bhatia, and Vivaan Bhatena are the only actors who get to show off their acting skills in the film, which is disappointing given that they are all supporting roles.

Final Verdict

In conclusion, Bloody Daddy succumbs to its clichés and tropes, even if the only thing that keeps you interested is the sheer thrill of watching Shahid perform action and stunts on screen.
