Dhoom 3

As soon as Dhoom 2 hit cinema halls in 2006, it gave new height to the franchisee and a re-birth for Hrithik Roshan.

Everybody was anticipating a grander Dhoom 3, and after an absence of 7 years, Yash Raj Films presents a sequel that is worth all the wait, and with Aamir Khan joining it could only get better!

Dhoom 3

Set in the busy city of Chicago, the Dhoom mean machines are back and with a cool circus-like theme as seen in trailers; you will see breathtaking bike stunts as well as mind blowing acrobatics and magic tricks putting up a great show.

An enormously skilled and ambitious thief carries out near-impossible robberies, outsmarts supercops and begins a game of chasing with his reputation at stake.

Review Scores by Saurin Shah.’]

Get ready to be surprised when suspense unfolds towards the interval and how the tale progresses when Abhishek weaves conspiracy rather than just police and detective curiosity into his theories.

Find out what happens when the circus wizard makes the whole city his stage and performs death-defying acts.

Acharya who has been closely associated with the Dhoom series gets to direct this time and does a fabulous job.

Everything from story, screenplay and direction is sharp, edgy and very stylish. He glues us to our seats and keeps us guessing the next move and throws in each new twist at the right moment.

His portrayal of the circus is world class, and all the chasing sequences in Chicago are thrilling. The slow motion shots especially are taken with excellent cinematography and all the circus tricks are made to look so real.

The South Indian action-style influence is so evident in Hindi films that even Vijay couldn’t help putting some spice in one of the opening scenes of the film.

The entire cast have given good performances, and Mr. Perfectionist – probably the main reason for the third installment taking so long – is a class apart.

Aamir definitely lacks the charisma of the handsome heartthrob Hrithik but compensates by his immaculate acting and the hard work put in to create the character he lives on screen.

Abhishek is better compared to previous parts and looks impressive and in control. Katrina who looks scorching hot in the ‘Kamli’ promos does a lot of dancing and circus acrobatics and little romance.

Uday with the responsibility of adding comedy on his strong shoulders is routine and tries to romance with a blonde this time, a tacit American cop called Victoria. Jackie plays a small but important role.

The credits begin with Aamir Khan’s tap dance and the amazing acapella on the title theme. ‘Malang’ and ‘Kamli’ are choreographed very well and provide a visual treat for audiences.

Overall, Dhoom 3 ticks all the boxes for a good film and provides the long awaited wholesome entertainment with Action, Style and Trapeze. Go watch it!

Saurin loves watching movies strongly believing each movie is worth a watch for the sheer hardwork and passion. As a reviewer he is hard to be pleased and his motto is 'A movie must take you to a different world, a world with more beauty, colour, thrill and a lot of sense'
