Bloody Daddy starts with Sumair (played by Shahid Kapoor), a Police Officer, and his associate riding a car in Cannought Place, New Delhi. The film begins by telling about the COVID-19 pandemic and how it affected the country. Introducing the angle of the pandemic, I thought that there would be some innovative element added, but apart from the usage of masks and taking nasal swabs, there was nothing else. After acquiring 50 kilograms of cocaine from the goons for their personal use, Shahid receives a call that his son has been taken hostage by the owners of cocaine seller, Sikander (played by Ronit Roy). The cocaine was acquired by Sumair so that he can sell it and take the money, however, things didn’t go as he planned them to be.

Many rats in the Police Department itself are also after that cocaine. Rajeev Khandelwal plays the role of a corrupt officer. His character had so much potential but the makers rather chose not to use it. The same goes for Dianna Penty whose talent was wasted as Aditi. Both could have added quality content to the film as they were also officers still, I especially felt bad for Dianna considering that she features in very few projects. The majority of the time has been utilized in showing Shahid fight the goons when it could have been used to show more interesting things or even give other actors good and equal screen time. Sanjay Kapoor as Hameed did a good role, but he also deserved more scenes. It feels like the makers only wanted Shahid Kapoor and Ronit Roy to shine.

Atharv (Sumair’s son) always complained to his father that he doesn’t give him adequate time. After the incident, a bonding develops between the father and son. A small twist has also been included in the end, but it can not make up for the wasted 120 minutes. To be precise, Shahid has been overused which makes his performance rotten. The police badge in Bloody Daddy has been misused a lot, and I wonder if that happens in real life too.

Bloody Daddy has a duration of 121 minutes and it is a complete waste of your time. Nothing is entertaining to watch in this movie and I would recommend you to rather skip it. With such a good cast ensemble, they could have done wonders, but rather they chose to stay with a stale plot which can be guessed within the first 20 minutes. A lot of expectations were from Shahid Kapoor and Ronit Roy, but nothing worthwhile is there. Bloody Daddy is the title of the film because he became a bloody hunter to save his son Atharv.

With the kidnapping of his son, they had a lot of options to mold the story as they desired instead we watch a highly predictable story. There are very long fighting scenes which at some point feel overdone. While Sumair was busy saving his kid, his expressions were too much for being a father. He was behaving like a maniac teenager whose iPad or a chocolate has been stolen from him.

Final Score – [4/10]
