Dhoom 3 Movie Review
The third installment in the Dhoom franchise can’t get any bigger than this. It’s the turn of Aamir Khan this time to play the thief and on the female antagonist it is Katrina Kaif. Dhoom 3 happens to be India’s first IMAX film (digitally re-mastered on IMAX format) and for the grandeur displayed on screen, it is definitely a visual treat for the viewer.
The film begins in Chicago with “The Great Indian Circus” being run by Aamir’s father Jackie Shroff under huge pressure due to default in payment of loans to the bank. When the bankers decide to pull down the curtains Jackie Shroff commits suicide in front of young Aamir (This part is already out in the trailers).
Aamir then follows his father’s footsteps and becomes a circus performer. Aamir not forgetting the past, realizes that money is everything decides to turn robber and when he does start his hunt, Jai Dixit (Abhishek) and Ali (Uday Chopra) are flown in to solve the case. Abhishek and Jai with their trademark introduction scenes walk-in to the party to solve this case.
Aliya (Katrina) joins Aamir in his as his main performer and does her part to perfection. How does Aamir start his robbery and every time how he manages to give police the slip forms the rest of the film which runs of 165 minutes.
“Dhoom 3” compared to its previous installment falls short in terms of twists and turns in the screenplay. “Dhoom 2” had so many elements woven in the story that led it to being a gripping film. In the third installment, there aren’t many twists and turns as one would like but overall the film does entertain.
In terms of acting, Aamir steals the show undoubtedly. Abhishek and Uday follow their body language they carried in the previous installments. Katrina Kaif though has nothing major in terms of acting, has thrown caution out of the window in her sexy avatar. If one wonders if there is anything left after “Shiela Ki Jawani” and “Chikni Chameli”, this film fills that void if any. If one is in the theatre for Katrina then they are sure that they have got more than their money’s worth.
Vijay Krishna Acharya who had written the earlier prequels of Dhoom gets to direct this one replacing Sanjay Gadhvi. Aditya Chopra has left no stone unturned to make this film the costliest till date in Bollywood’s history.
Watch Dhoom 3 for its grandeur, Aamir and Katrina.
