Shahid Kapoor and Diana Penty starrer Bloody Daddy is streaming on JioCinema from today onwards. The action entertainer is directed by Ali Abbas Zafar. The film also features a stellar supporting cast such as Rajeev Khandelwal, Ronit Roy, and Sanjay Kapoor among others. Check out our Bloody Daddy Review!

Bloody Daddy Review:


Bloody Daddy narrates the compelling tale of a determined officer’s relentless pursuit to rescue his own flesh and blood. Within the bustling cityscape of Delhi, Sumair Azad (portrayed by the enigmatic Shahid Kapoor) operates as an unwavering narcotics agent. Teamed up with his trusted colleague, Jaggi (masterfully portrayed by Zeishan Quadri), they orchestrate a daring heist, brazenly pilfering a staggering sum of 50 crores from a clandestine drug operation.

Simultaneously, two incorruptible anti-corruption officers, Sameer Singh (exquisitely portrayed by Rajeev Khandelwal) and Aditi Rawat (embodied by the captivating Diana Penty), meticulously trail every move made by Sumair. The ensuing events unfold as an enthralling and unpredictable narrative that shapes the remainder of the film.

Bloody Daddy stands as the official adaptation of the critically acclaimed 2017 French film, NUIT BLANCHE. Crafted by the ingenious minds of Ali Abbas Zafar and Aditya Basu, the storyline captivates and entertains.

Regrettably, the writing falters during the latter half of the film, failing to sustain the momentum established in the initial stages. Nevertheless, the dialogues crafted by Ali Abbas Zafar and Aditya Basu, with additional contributions from Siddharth-Garima, are imbued with wit, sharpness, and occasional levity.


What truly ignites the screen is the undeniable presence of Shahid Kapoor, who delivers a tour de force performance as the complex protagonist, Sumair. Kapoor’s portrayal exudes a remarkable blend of authenticity and effortlessness, captivating viewers at their very core. With exceptional finesse, he breathes life into Sumair, skillfully capturing his multifaceted nature: kind yet mischievous, sensitive yet resolute, and above all, unyieldingly determined.

Kapoor’s nuanced portrayal unveils the intricate machinations of Sumair’s mind as he navigates a treacherous landscape, perpetually striving to tip the scales in his favor.

Ronit Roy, in his portrayal of the menacing drug lord Sikandar, commands the screen with his inherent charisma.

Sanjay Kapoor and Mukesh Bhatt, portraying an engaging duo, inject the narrative with a fresh twist, accompanied by a plethora of witty remarks that leave viewers in stitches.

The presence of Rajeev Khandelwal on screen is a sheer delight for his ardent fans, and his electrifying scenes alongside Shahid Kapoor serve as a feast for action aficionados.

Diana Penty delivers a commendable performance as an honest and principled police officer. Vivan Bhathena, in his portrayal of Ronit Roy’s younger brother, leaves a lasting impression, leaving viewers yearning for more of his talent. At the heart of the narrative lies Shahid Kapoor’s portrayal of a father, resonating deeply with audiences through his raw and emotive expressions of helplessness, sensitivity, and unwavering love.

Surprisingly, Bloody Daddy incorporates elements of humor, tastefully intertwined within the fabric of the story. Rather than force, the comedic punches emerge organically during casual conversations, striking a chord with the audience.

The action sequences within the film avoid gratuitous theatrics, opting instead for a realistic and crisp portrayal, earning gratitude from viewers seeking authenticity.


Although the soundtrack fails to resonate, fading into the background, the track “Issa Vibe” manages to capture attention with its infectious melody. Furthermore, Julius Packiam’s captivating background score enhances the overall cinematic allure.

VERDICT: 4 Stars

Bloody Daddy demands multiple viewings, as it rises above the current wave of Bollywood remakes, defying expectations and delivering an exhilarating rollercoaster ride. By the film’s conclusion, viewers will find themselves wholeheartedly applauding, eagerly joining the queue for yet another thrilling experience.
