Dhoom 3 is one of the most eagerly awaited films of 2013 and it has hit the screens today, across the world. After John Abraham in part 1 and Hrithik Roshan in part 2, it is now Aamir Khan’s turn to essay the villain’s role in this hugely successful franchise. Abhishek Bachchan, Katrina Kaif and Uday Chopra are the other lead actors in this action entertainer. Let us check out the film now.
The Union Bank of Chicago faces a grave threat from the very intelligent Sahir (Aamir Khan). Saahir has a personal vendetta against the bank, as his dad was put out of business and declared a bankrupt by the financial institution.
A circus artiste by profession, Sahir hits the bank hard by looting its branches. ACP Jai (Abhishek) and Ali (Uday Chopra) are brought into the picture, to put an end to Sahir’s activities.
As Jai begins zeroing in on Sahir, he discovers some unexpected things. Who is Sahir? Will he succeed in escaping from Jai? This is what ‘Dhoom 3’ is all about.
Plus Points :
This film is Aamir Khan’s one man show. Aamir has successfully pulled off two very different characters in this movie and he has performed well in the stunt sequences. There are some emotional scenes in the second half and Aamir simply steals the show here.
Abhishek Bachchan has been doing a good job as ACP Jai for quite some time now and he has delivered yet again in Dhoom 3. Uday Chopra is ok as Ali. Katrina Kaif looks incredibly hot in the film and she has performed well in the action sequences.
The film has tremendous pace in the first half, with some high voltage action sequences. The interval twist is unexpected and quite thrilling.
The film has a very lavish feel and everything has a sense of grandeur. A lot of money was spent on the film and it shows in each and every frame. The climax block has been set up nicely.
Minus Points :
Some of the stunt sequences are outlandish and unrealistic. Perhaps, they were conceived with the aim of catering to the front benchers in small towns. After a racy and explosive first half, the film slows down a bit in the second half.
Instead of high voltage action sequences, there is more of drama and sentiment in the second half.
The film’s plot is quite superficial and there is nothing much in terms of novelty, except for a few twists.
Technical Aspects :
Cinematography is a big asset for the film. The visuals look quite rich and stunning. Background music is good and helps the proceedings. Editing is very good in the first half, but could have been better in the second half.
Vijay Krishna Acharya has concentrated on coming up with a racy entertainer and he has largely succeeded. Production values of Yash Raj Films are lavish.
‘Dhoom 3’ is bigger and better than the previous installments in this franchise. Aamir Khan steals the show with his superb performance and he is ably supported by Abhishek and Katrina Kaif. The movie is a perfect holiday entertainer, for it delivers bucket loads of entertainment. Don’t miss this one!
