Dhoom
Reviewer's Summary - Above Average

Dhoom Language: Hindi
Year: 2004
Actors: Abhishek Bachchan, Uday Chopra, John Abraham, Rimmi, Esha Deol
Director: Sanjay Gadhvi
Producer: Aditya Chopra
Music: Pritam
Lyrics: Sameer
Screenplay & Dialogs: Vijay Krishna, Acharya

Dhoom is an interesting and fast paced movie by Bollywood standards.

The novel story is of course the highpoint of this movie featuring one of Bollywood's mediocre actors - Abhishek Bachchan.

Fortunately for the audience, director Sanjay Gadhvi has managed to coax an above average performance from Abhishek Bachchan in Dhoom.

Abhishek plays a police officer Jai Dixit on the heels of a gang that commits robberies on highways and gets away quickly on high-powered fast bikes.

The leader of the biker-robber gang is John Abraham. When they are not pulling off big heists, the biker-robbers work as waiters in a pizza restaurant.

John Abraham does a decent job as the cool cat leader of the biker gang.

Uday Chopra is Ali, a bike mechanic and fence of fast bikes who is forced to assist Jai in nabbing the biker gang. Uday Chopra doesn't have the typical good actor looks but is not a bad performer in front of the cameras.

As Jai's wife Sweety, Rimmi Sen does not have much of a role except to display her physical assets. In fact, the movie opens with a shot of the young lady painting a room dressed in very skimpy attire. Just in case her skimpy attire was not enough to titillate the audience, director Sanjay Gadhvi then drenches her with a water hose so that we can see more of the lissome beauty's blouse-filling assets.

Esha Deol reminds us of Macbeth's witches. With neither acting skills nor stunning looks, Esha Deol's only claim to fame is a pair of illustrious parents in Hema Malini and Dharmendra. In their heyday, Hema and Dharmendra were a treat to watch. Esha is sheer torture to endure.

Esha plays Ali's love interest in Dhoom.

The bike and stunt scenes in Dhoom are of course a big highlight of Dhoom. They are all right but pale besides 25-year-old Hollywood movies like Mad Max (1979).

The music in Dhoom does not rise to extraordinary heights but is definitely not bad either. We liked Dhoom Dhoom, Dilbara and Salaame best of all.

Music director Pritam deserves Kudos for his efforts as even decent music is getting to be a rarity these days in Bollywood.

N.B: Dhoom 2, the sequel to Dhoom starring Bollywood superstar Hrithik Roshan and Flop Queen oops Beauty Queen Aishwarya Rai is slated to release on November 24 in the U.S. - Copyright SearchIndia.com.
