Ashdoc's movie review---Dhoom 3

Post by ashdoc on Sun Dec 22, 2013 10:00 am

Nowadays Yash Raj films seems to have started making films keeping the international audience in mind : ' international ' meaning the Pakistan and middle east audience allied with Indian and Bangladeshi muslims....
.....For almost all the characters in the film are shown to be muslims---including the hero , the heroine , the father of the hero and the sidekick....
Only the cop ( inspector Jai Dixit ) played by Abhishek Bachhan is hindu---that too because his character is a leftover from former ' Dhoom ' films and cannot be changed now....

The villain of course is Bollywood's favourite bogey for international films---a white man who else . He is the banker responsible for the downfall of the hero's father ( played by Jackie Shroff ) and the father's suicide , which is the result of the banker's callous decision of forcing the closure of the magic show called ' great Indian circus ' owned by Iqbal ( Jackie ) for defaulting on debt . 

The son named Saahir ( played by Aamir Khan ) grows up to take revenge on the bank by looting it repeatedly ' Dhoom ' style---meaning by the most unbelievable stunts using a rope and a flashy motorbike , and leaving a shower of notes for poor people to pick like a modern day Robinhood .

.....And because he leaves a note in hindi after every robbery , two Indian cops are called in---Jai Dixit and his sidekick Ali ( Uday Chopra ) who else....

With this the chase begins....

The stunts are frankly far far out from what can be attempted in real life and seem too much to believe at times , but do keep the adrenaline pumping in the movie . But it is in emotion that the movie scores !!---and the director surprises us by giving a romantic and emotional angle to the movie that far surpasses the action sequences in making the movie look good . 

And where there is romance there has to be a woman---a dazzlingly beautiful one at that . Katrina looks like a dream and dances like heaven . Her introduction in a stupendously muscle arching and body curving dance sequence where she sheds her clothes one by one left everyone in the audience transfixed on their seats in the theater just like it left the hero just watching on his seat in the movie . There was pin drop silence in the cinema hall for 5 minutes....

But the introduction of such a heavenly beauty also shores up jealousies among two men in the movie as to who should romance her , and really gives a kick start to the emotional core of the movie . 

But the jealousy is between whom and whom ?? 
I am not telling---for the movie has a surprise in store at the interval , a trick commonly used in magic shows but something that the common man is unaware of....

Aamir Khan acts well , Katrina looks dazzling and that's enough....
Abhishek Bachhan acts his usual stern self as inspector Jai Dixit and Uday Chopra is more like a monkey with his eyes permanently popped out at any woman....

The action sequences may be unbelievable and the motorbikes which can change shape look frankly unreal , but everything in the movie is on a spectacular scale and that helps in glossing over the unreal parts of the film .
The climax is heart touching and shows the importance of human relationships above all the action and emotion . No sex and lack of blood soaked violence make is suitable for watching by a family crowd .

I didn't see it in IMAX form , but from the scenes I could make out that the motorbike somersaults and chases will look better in IMAX .

Verdict---good .

She does, though, have this to say when the evil banker demands to know who’s been robbing him: “It’s a thief, sir.”

How is it the banker's fault if you cannot repay the loan?
If you need financing and the banker refuses , he becomes the evil villain?

OTOH, Chicago never looked better on the big screen including the Hollywood movies like the transformers.

Indian movie directors can make Indian cities look like First world cities. So, Chicago is a piece of cake for them.

BTW, Doc Ashish, I recommend you watch Christopher Nolan's The Prestige before you go on about the common man not being aware yada yada.

Good review except for the last sentence, the verdict. I don't think it's a good movie.
I wanted to go to the tom hanks movie but was forcefully dragged to this one today. I wasted three hours of my time. There's nothing to it except stunts, stunts and more stunts. Boring! The only things i was impressed were Aamir Khan's acting in the second half and Katrina Kaif's flat tummy.

Almost 20 of us watched it, so an epic event in itself. Reactions were from awesome to whatever. One person asks in the interval - watched circus so far, when is the movie beginning?

- Loved Chicago as one of the main characters.
- Amir was great acting wise specially when his character's twist is shown.
- Gotta love Chopras for their slick production. All the tricky scenes were done flawlessly.
- Stunts were way too out of the world. Great yes, but I get a bigger kick out of watching stuff that is 'doable'.
- the last chases sent me into hypertension with all that noise.
- Katrina showcased her body well. But her role was so insignificant compared to last two Dhoom ladies.
- One of the most pathetic chemistries between Kat and Amir. Actually there was none.
- all the fun lines went to Uday Chopra.
- zero chemistry between Abhishek and Amir, compared to his chemistry with last two villians, Hrithik and John Abraham.
- Abhishek Bachchan did his job as usual. The movies are never about him anyway.
- Amir made a great body for this but seriously he should never again work with all other super tall actors. Looked too stocky.
- Sonu Nigam's son looked cute.

Aside, I remember watching a movie on magicians where two competed and one of them had a similar main story like this one (I think). Had a weird bizarre end. Anyone remembers that?

The 'awesome' reaction would've come from your son for sure Smile.

I don't think it's Sonu Nigam's son. His son is Nevaan, the one who sang the kids' version of kalavari dee. I think he's younger than the little guy in the movie.

It's a copy of the english movie, The Prestige.

To rinse the taste off, 10 of us are watching dhoom2 on DVD. Too many cat calls at Hrithik and ash and even Uday bipasha.

The funniest part is, the speakers are bad. So while the songs are playing fine, the dialogs are muffled. So we are creating our own parallel dialogs that are directly connected to what we are seeing on the screen and not related to the movie, annoying the serious watchers. Re-enacting of scenes and dances is happening too. But the funniest part is imitation of retarded Hrithik character from Krish. Meaning Krish's dialogs in dhoom.

Correction. I myself am not doing any of the above. I am the one only laughing.

I'll borrow the movie from someone who downloads "Dhoom 3".

That's the best I can do in addition to finding time to watch.
