The Dhoom Movie Review

By Nitika Desai
Rating: 3/5

When the Bollywood kitsch is wrapped in a glossy package and peppered with something still unseen (in Hindi films) as nail-biting chases on superfast bikes, a viewer is obviously going to get tempted to spend the money worth a ticket to see John Abraham, Uday Chopra and Abhishek Bachchan in their speed-thrilling acts on some of the fastest mean machines in the world.

Director Sanjay Gadhavi's Dhoom is an action thriller that has been shot very stylistically and presented in a sleek way with the use of fast editing and suitable background music. But the movie doesn't have a story that can keep a viewer glued for its entire duration.

Storyline: A gang of four 'helmeted and leather-suited' bikers has confounded the police. The audacity with which the four conduct their robbery, and the quicksilver speed at which they flee from the scene of crime on their superfast bikes, has made it more difficult for any cop to catch them.

The leader of the gang is Kabir (John Abraham) who keeps a Suzuki Hayabusa 1300 cc bike. He is a man with controlled temperament and unquenchable thirst for money. The usual modus operandi of the gang is to commit the robbery, flee from the scene and then change into innocent pizza boys.

The responsibility to catch the gang falls on the shoulders of an 'iron-willed' cop Jai (Abhishek Bachchan). Jai is a married man with a lovely Bengali wife Sweety (Rimi Sen).

Jai is not dumb to not know that the robbers are using some special bikes to commit their acts. So he loops in on Ali (Uday Chopra), a local mechanic who keeps a Suzuki Bandit 1200 cc bike and is “world famous in saara Mumbai” for his knowledge of the mean machines. Besides bikes, Ali has two other weaknesses - women and money.

Ali joins hands with Jai to nab the mysterious gang of bikers. But his weakness for women - particularly for his “dilbar” Sheena (Esha Deol) - is a constant distraction in catching the thieves.

Ultimately it is Kabir, the leader of the gang, who throws a challenge at Jai to stop them (if he has the guts to) from committing a big heist in a Goa casino on the New Year's Eve. As Jai and Kabir brace up for the final showdown, one of them must outfox the other. For Kabir, it is not just a robbery but also a matter of his self-esteem as a flawless thief. For Jai, it is his commitment towards his duty to bring the wrongdoers to justice.

Dhoom is an action thriller with an overdose of bike chases and speed-thrills. Uday Chopra chips in some light moments in this otherwise gritty fare with his 'tongue-in-cheek' humor. Abhishek Bachchan needs to master a few emotive expressions other than his usual brooding. John Abraham looks dashing and fits the role of a bike-riding thief to T.

On the whole the movie is average.
