Movie Review: Dhoom 3

dhoom-3-posterkatrina-kaif-still-from-machale-song-of-dhoom-3Within a couple of minutes of your introduction to Aamir Khan in Dhoom 3, you see him running down a wall of a bank in slow-motion. You’re not sure what’s happening, but there are dollar bills falling like leaves in autumn, and a homeless man is happy.

Right after that there is Uday Chopra, talking to save his life, surrounded by a bunch of goons, till his friend Abhishek Bachchan makes a grand entry in an autorickshaw that smashes a wall and helps beat the shit out of most of the bad guys.

Having skipped Dhoom and Dhoom 2, and having no idea what those films are about, I’m watching Dhoom 3, not to add a movie review to the website, not to trash the film for fun, but for the sole purpose of being entertained. It doesn’t seem like a bad idea, really, for amidst the non-actors are Katrina Kaif, who’s getting hotter with each passing film, and Aamir Khan, whose presence lends some credibility to the franchise.

Katrina-kaif-new-look-in-Dhoom-3But the story grabs your attention only just before the intermission, and a lot of Dhoom 3 is utterly ridiculous, thanks to Aamir’s motorbike that can transform into a speedboat or a four-wheeler, depending on the need of the moment and Khan’s mood, even defying gravity for the sake of Bollywood blockbusters. Uday Chopra looks like a teenage mutant ninja turtle and thinks he’s funny, and I’m wondering how bad those two previous Dhoom films are.

Aamir Khan tries very hard, way too hard, but the unreal thrills of Dhoom 3 keep it from being believable, with the superstar putting on a facial expression similar to his character in 3 Idiots, that other shitty film of his. He does pull a couple of scenes off smoothly, but that’s about it. Abhishek Bachchan is only helped by his quite confidence, affable when not playing the cop, but there isn’t really much for him to do anyway.

Since you don’t want spoilers, let me just say Dhoom 3 will amuse Christopher Nolan; after Memento, it’s The Prestige. A two-out-of-five rating for Dhoom 3 for having the sexiest female actor in Bollywood.

    First Ghajni and now this, Aamir khan really needs to lay off the coke, man. He acted well in Talaash though

    I don’t know what made Aamir Khan sign into this mindless drivel called Dhoom 3. Right from Ghajini to Talaash and Dhobi Ghaat etc. he’s totally lost the plot. Katrina’s unbelievable circus jumps and on-screen presence were the only saving grace in this disaster tragicomedy. As for Abhishek Bachan, good to know that he has almost quit acting and is happy being doormat house husband to Aishwarya Rai. As for Uday Chopra, what a silly irritating douche. Sorry this whole Dhoom franchise sucks although the first installment was somewhat passable only due to Tata Young’s famous item number “Dhoom Machale”… I think that song was catchy.

    All the 3 khans are signing horrible films man, since the last 7-8 years, especially Salman and Srk. . Saala Dabbang, Bodyguard, Om Shaanti Om, Chennai Express jaise movies kaisa pasand aata hai logo ko?
