Dishoom Review Rating: Dishoom movie of Bollywood starring Jacqueline Fernandez, Varun Dhawan, and John Abraham in lead roles has been released. It releases worldwide on 29th July 2016, i.e., Friday. Rohit Dhawan has directed the film of the action-adventure genre. Nadiadwala Grandsons Entertainment has produced it. (check: Ghostbusters movie review.)
The flick’s promotion has been done on a big scale by the filmmakers. It is making a buzz in the entire industry despite having average promos. It may be due to star cast and songs. However, we are expecting it to be a delightful entertainer and don’t have many hopes for it.
Dishoom Movie Review: Synopsis & Analysis
Dishoom is the story based on two India cops Kabir Shergill played by John and Junaid Ansari played by Varun. Both these are deployed on a 36 hours manhunt to search the missing Viraj, one of the top batsman of India. Viraj gets kidnapped in the Middle East before the match of India and Pakistan.
The director Rohit has tried to bring the required elements to make it a spy thriller with a mixture of humor in it. However, it doesn’t turn out well. The first half is just average and nothing special as it has some fun moments with flat jokes.Dishoom Movie Review Dishoom Review Rating
We come across the action and adventure in the second half. The talkie has nothing new and much to offer despite that the topic hasn’t been tried much in the Bollywood film industry. The script is itself flawed. Despite being just 2 hours, it feels to be of much longer length. Humor is average with average dialogues.
Though makers have invested in it a lot, it still appears to be a kind of b grade Bollywood movie. By watching it, some scenes seemed to be inspired by films likes of Bad Boys, 21 Jump Street, etc. The duo characters of Varun and John appears to have taken inspiration from Uday Chopra and Abhishek Bachchan from the Dhoom series.
Dishoom Review: Direction, Editing, Music
The direction is average. The film has a comic element in a significant amount as compared to the thriller. However, the flick seems to be overhyped on the whole. It fails to keep most of the audiences keep on the edge of their seats. The chase sequences are good.
Background music provided by Abhijit Vaghani is good. Expect ‘Sau Tarah Ke’ song; other songs aren’t that much good. The location chosen are appreciable, but the cinematography is not up to the mark. Visuals are chopped at many times.
Dishoom Review: Star Performances
- Varun has tried his best, but while coming up with a funny character he has overacted.
- John has impressed with his character of a tough cop. However, his dialogue delivery can be improved.
- Jacqueline has done justice with her character as she hasn’t been given much screen presence. However, she sizzles in the Sau Tarah Ke song.
- Akshaye Khanna has played the lead antagonist Rahul (Wagah) and acted wonderfully. It is a welcome change and his return to the big screen.
- Akshay Kumar, Nargis Fakhri, and Parineeti Chopra has played cameos. ‘Khiladi’ Kumar steals the show even with his limited screen presence.
Dishoom Movie Review: Verdict
On the whole, Dishoom looks like a messy film having some fun elements and appreciable action sequences. Akshaye Khanna and Akshay Kumar are the two to watch out the film for. Other than them, it is an average flick.
Dishoom 1st Day Collection:
It is expected to be around 10 crores as it has Varun who has a success rate of 100% among young stars. Moreover, he is popular among both masses and classes. Adding to it, the film stars John and Jacqueline. Thus, despite average promos, it should get a good opening as per the trend.
