I am one of those very few people who liked the movie! The auto-rickshaw stunt, amir’s tap dance, bike turning into jet-ski, too many slow motion shots and un-revealed process of robbery, all contribute to the downsides of Dhoom:3 movie. Not to forget the Dhoom: 3 songs – incredibly boring.
Needless to mention, Dhoom 3 cast has Aamir Khan, Abhishek Bachchan, Katrina Kaif, Uday Chopra, Jackie Shroff, Tabret Bethell as Victoria – the Bipasha this time for Uday Chopra, Siddharth Nigam – the young Amir and the list goes on….
Here’s the meaning of the anthem of Dhoom:3…
Bande hain hum uske, humpe kiska zor – We are His men & only He can control us
Umeedon ke sooraj, nikle chaaron or – Rays of hope is rising all around us
Iraade hain fauladi, himmati har kadam – Our determination is strong & every step is courageous
Apne haathon kismat likhne, aaj chale hain hum – We start today to write our fate with our own hands
With the long list of flaws in the movie, here is something that the movie caught correctly.. action and suspense. Well if you know the complete story (with complete, I mean the 2nd half of the movie), do not watch it all, you’ll weep from start to end. But with the suspense and base story created from the start of the movie, you’ll enjoy it without losing interest for the entire 172 minutes movie duration. The only point that earlier 2 Dhoom movies lacked was the base story. This movie has that. I wish one more thing was added in the movie – some high heels for Amir. They usually do that, here was it because they didn’t want it to be fake? Well, an addition to the long faking list wouldn’t have harmed the movie.
Few days before the movie release, a message was wandering around creating rumors. This is how it went: “Amir Khan dies in the starting of Dhoom:3 that only Uday Chopra knows, then he makes the master plan by teaming up with Kamaal Hassan and remaining robbery is done by Kamaal Hassan wearing Amir ‘s mask who reveals himself at the end of the movie”. Forget about Amir’s mask and Kamaal Hassan. Uday Chopra makes the master plan? Of all Uday Choppraa?? – the item boy of Dhoom series??
The auto-rickshaw stunt, although insensible, but was an entertaining one and Thank God, the 3-wheeler broke after few mind-boggling stunts, else audience would be found breaking their chair within the first 30 minutes of the movie.
Amir is known for the awesome messages he conveys from his movies. May be in this one, nobody heard his thoughts during the making of the movie. Let aside the logic, songs, Katrina’s tiny role. One very wrong message shown in the movie is “When you fail, end your life”. Rather it should have been Suicide is not the last option, it’s never an option.
In short, the movie doesn’t need any logic to be applied, Watch it for the suspense, action and few circus stunts and of course if you are a fan of Amir Khan as I am or if you drool for Ms. Kaif.
Dhoom:3 review: Watchable once.
