‘Dhoom 3’ is one of the most anticipated sequels in the year 2013, and the reason is Aamir Khan and The third installment of the action franchise is a visual delight. The film also has an emotional connect but critics say the film lacks imagination and is showing signs of franchise fatigue. As far as Aamir Khan is concerned, he nails it as a villain. Katrina makes an impressiveCritic's take: Abhishek Bachchan and his leather jacket continue to share the same number of expressions they did nine years ago, when the Dhoom franchise was launched.
Uday Chopra hasn't possibly watched any of his own films still so is yet to retire Dhoom: 3 comprises bits and bobs from several American films—its vengeful magician‘s premise echoesNow You See Me, its scheming prestidigitator, interval-timed twist and emotional undertow are from The Prestige, its anti-big bank stance inspired by The Dark Knight Returns—but it’s mostly Bollywood baloney. The story is set, embarrassingly, in Chicago, home to clueless Americans in general and unskilled extras in particular.
Aamir Khan’s trapeze artist Sahir has been repeatedly attacking the bank that had driven his magician father (Jackie Shroff) to suicide and leaving behind clues—in Hindi. The back story is well established by the writer and it delivers all the action and the speed that the ‘Dhoom’ franchise promises. The stunts on the bike and even in the circus scenes are very well made and shot. The technical team should also be lauded for seamless special effects. All the action sequences, especially the introduction scene and the climax are gripping and you wouldn’t even risk blinking, just in case you miss something. It must be pointed out that though the influence of the Hollywood is there in the movie, but the stunt direction looks original and keeps the Bollywood masala intact. As every Dhoom fan will know, a thief must have a unique identity. While John Abraham delivered pizza, Hrithik Roshan left a symbol of ‘A’ at the scene of each robbery.
Aamir leaves behind a joker mask and writes ‘Bank waalon, tumhaari aisi ki taisi‘ on the wall. With the stolen money, Sahir manages to start up the circus once again. Since the thief is an Indian, the Bombay Police is summoned and links are found between Iqbal’s son Sahir’s involvement in the robbery. Will Jai (Abhishek Bachchan) and Ali(Uday Chopra) will stop Sahir who is determined to seek revenge and destroy the bank for life is the story of Dhoom:3.Uday Chopra’s Ali, one of the recurring characters in the Dhoom franchise, perfectly embodies the new movie’s attitude to locations, Caucasian actors and Hollywood-style action sequences. Writer and director Vijay Krishna Acharya’s screenplay for Dhoom: 3 takes its cue from the vagabond character’s wide-eyed wonderment at being in The Abroad, his tendency to reduce everything to his intellectual level, and his gee-whiz regard for his adversary’s fleeing skills.
And the performances add to the package. There is no doubt that Aamir Khan plays a very convincing baddie, but there is a big secret to his character which won’t be fun to reveal. So let’s just talk less about his character. Sadly, Katrina Kaif doesn’t have a strong role like Aishwarya Rai Bachchan did in Dhoom:2. Kat is in the film just to add glamour and not much else, though she does look dazzling and is fabulous with her dance and acrobatics. Abhishek Bachchan has always been good as Jai Dixit and he continues to be do in Dhoom:3. Uday Chopra, like always, adds the comic element and is good fun to watch, in small doses. Katrina Kaif’s trapeze artist Aliya gets the worse treatment, virtually disappearing from the plot after stripping down to her skivvies for her job interview. The movie’s real stars are the various stunt doubles, dancers and trapeze artists, whose collective energy occasionally lifts the film out of dross and towards something approaching entertainment.
‘Dhoom 3’ manages to deliver a typically Bollywood revenge saga in a modern way. The suspense and the emotional quotient added to the speed and stunts make the movie as spectacular as it promises to be. Acharya brings to the audience an enthralling script and executes it equally well. The movie is sure to keep you hooked; go and watch it for Aamir!
Movie Rating : 4/5
