Movie Review Of Dhoom 2 Back in Action - This weekend I watched Dhoom 2 on cable.
Dhoom 2, Back in Action- 2/10 - This action flick had only one thing good about it - Hrithik Roshan. The story was full of holes punched with some chroma (green screen) stunts. The acting of the main characters played by Abhishek Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai and Uday Chopra were below standard especially Bachchan who truly sucked.
Extremely annoying was the the way Abhishek Bachchan tried to use his Dad's name to gain mileage, eg. when he tossed a coin (like in Sholay) saying the Hindi equivalent of 'lets decide like my father used to' and other situations. The end of Dhoom 2 was the worst. It seemed Abhishek's supporters did'nt want him to look like a 'bewakoof' cop who let the thief outsmart him, so they had his character follow Hrithik to Fiji and pretend to let him of the hook ! Another scene in Dhoom 2 that looked wrong was the scene where Hrithik acts like a psycho and 'Gabbar' style puts a bullet in one of the chambers of a revolver and alternately takes potshots at Ms.Rai. The music was ok.
The choreography of Dhoom 2 was good - Hrithik was at his usual best while Aishwarya was given robotic steps to compensate for her lack of dancing skills. About the 'onscreen kiss' - Hrithik was great but Aishwarya seemed like she needed some more practice. The music - average, inspired by the previous Dhoom. The only reason Dhoom 2 was a hit was because of the large scale promotion in the media - it had absolutely no sense, story, dialogue or character development.
Did you catch this flick ?
