Movie Review: Dhoom 2

Title: Dhoom 2
Starring: Hrithik Roshan, Abhishek Bachhan, Ash, Bipasha

Riding on the huge success of the first Dhoom, the movie makers tried a variation with a slightly different cast — Hrithik for John Abraham, Bipasaha for Esha Doel, and Aishwarya for a slight twist in the plot. The concept is the same. Cop chasing a cool dude big time thief. This time around the thief operates at an international level giving the movie makers plenty of scope to show beaches set in foreign countries. Hrithik has Ash for company. The stars in the film perennially move around scantily clad in slow motion or at high speed in jerky motion. Uday Chopra manages to continues to irritate in this sequel. The songs are weak especially when compared to the first Dhoom film. In short the overall slickness and fast pace of the original Dhoom was clearly missing.

What is most surprising is that Hrithik Roshan won the best actor Filmfare award for this film! Apart from constantly exposing his chest and displaying his colored stylized hair he had little to do by way of acting. The rest of the cast just ambles along taking turns to wear skimpy clothes.

One thought on “Movie Review: Dhoom 2”

  1. completely agreed….i was shocked too when hrithik won the filmfare…i was expecting him to win but not for dhoom but for krish…and he was a villain…it didnt fit…abhishek was better in dhoom then in dhoom 2…i felt like he was just there and didnt put any effort into the role…compared to dhoom…and finally no song can match “dhoom matcha lay”…..not even “crazy kiya ray”…
