Dum Maaro Dum - Movie Review

High on Gloss, Low on Dum
By Naresh Deoshi

However, credit to Sridhar Raghavan for the way he’s structured the screenplay. The story unspools non-linearly, often flitting into flashbacks. The tracks of Lorry, Kamath and Joki are separate until they converge at the Goa airport. Credit to Rohan Sippy as well for making a film that’s high on style, gloss, and with piecemeal doses of entertainment. Granted that there’re no wheels-within-wheels or peels-after-peels of layers in the rather shallow plot, but the movie ends up as a one-time watch.

Among actors, Prateik Babbar stands out as the wide-eyed juvenile who sees his dream turn into a nightmare overnight. Rana Daggubati is doubtlessly a hunk girls would swoon over but is ill at ease in lip-synching Hindi. No wonder the camera captures him more often from his back rather than front. Abhishek Bachchan once again does his signature stuff -- glower and grin -- without delivering anything exceptional. Bipasha Basu, likewise again, sticks to a few expressions and Deepika Padukone’s Mit Jaye Gham too isn’t the screen-scorcher it’s touted to be.

All in all, a film with more gloss than Dum.

Rating: 2.5 stars out of 5
