If there’s one thing that critics can be sure of with an Abhishek Bachchan movie lately, it’s that they’re garbage.
The Bollywood buffoon’s latest crap-show Dum Maro Dum released today and movie critics are already panning it.
Here’s a sample of reviews for Dum Maro Dum:
DUM MAARO DUM lacks dum….the content fails to hold your attention after a point [towards the second hour specifically]. The writing gets muddled in the post-interval portions,….There are portions that put you off….that remain unexplained [… Besides, the pre-climax as well as the penultimate moments are a major letdown. The drama in the concluding reels, in fact, is prolonged for no reason…..That’s not all, even the elimination of the all-powerful drug kingpin by an inconsequential character seems ridiculous. Also, the suspense just doesn’t work and nor does it create the desired impact [the twist in the end is quite an anti-climax].
This is one film that should soar but sadly it never quite takes flight. The problem is the writing…..the narrative slumps in places, the plot has loopholes and the characters just aren’t convincing enough to grab you.
[T]his film never ever seems to be about plot or character…Abhishek Bachchan ….is straitjacketed with a disappointingly one-note character, and seems to believe scowling is all it takes to be hard as nails. It must also here be said that watching Bachchan take down goons by the dozen is distressingly unconvincing,
Abhishek Bachchan doesn’t bring anything new to his character, nor does Southern actor Rana Daggubati, making his Bollywood debut in the film.
Of course, the critics may have a good thing or two to say but overall they don’t seem to be too pleased with the film.
