Behind the Movie Dhoom 3: When there are two super duper hits into same franchise, undoubtedly we expect more of quality in third. As there is Aamir Khan, an ever green performer, our expectations are kept intact and multiplied. Writer turned director Vijay Krishna Acharya takes up the responsibility and how far he succeeds?
In the Movie Dhoom 3: Nothing so special, it is again about Great India Circus clown Sahir (Aamir Khan) goes on to plan the robberies of banks in Chicago. To catch him, the team of ACP Jai Dikshit (Abhishek Bachchan) and Ali Akbar (Uday Chopra) with Victoria (Tabret Bethell) also take the co-operation of Chicago cops. The well sketched snatchings and accomplished tasks leave Jai and team in dire shock. It’s the time when Sahir and Jai come face to face and Sahir leaves the clue. Yet, Jai and Ali are clean bowled by the play of Sahir.
In retaliation, Jai intrudes into circus with fake identity to dig in the actual mystery behind. To his shock, there is also a mentally less expressive Samir (Aamir Khan), twin brother to Sahir playing the game cleverly. For insiders, they are two while for outsiders there is only one that is Sahir. Jai plays the spoilt game of bringing Sahir’s dance partner Aliya (Katrina Kaif) into Samir’s romantic life to disturb the unity in twin brothers. However, what is the interesting flashback of Sahir, Samir and why did they choose Banks as their target? Did Jai, Ali outwitted the charm of Sahir, Samir?
Values of the Movie Dhoom 3: The USP of ‘Dhoom’ has been high octane action sequences filled with lots of thrilling bike and car chases. Luckily, makers have this time added the edge of emotional quotient and perfect story line to bring the best from Aamir Khan. As director Vijay Krishna Acharya is a writer by profession, may be for the first time we can see superb writing ever enjoyed in ‘Dhoom’ series till date. Sudeep Chatterjee’s camera work is just breathtaking and the best seen in recent times on par with Hollywood standards. Ritesh Soni editing was just classically functional. Background score of Julius Packiam is packed with bundles of energy. Every time, we hear the theme music of ‘Dhoom’ with Aamir lifting the bike, its goose bumping. Pritam’s score for songs is also wonderfully canned. Also action wise, this is a better quality than first two. Then, production values of Yash Raj Films are mind altering.
What to say about performance when Aamir Khan slipped into the two characters with ease. He outshines everybody on screen, may it be action or drama. The way interval bang is conceived with the crucial twist of twin brothers is revealed, Aamir was outstanding. In simple, nobody can do as good justice as Aamir for the characters of Samir and Sahir. The contrast levels showed in both are significantly shown. Katrina Kaif is beautiful and her romantic track with Aamir did not come out satisfactory. Abhishek Bachchan was no different and Uday Chopra provided the relief.
Out of the Movie Dhoom 3: Primary advantage for ‘Dhoom 3’ to work wonders at Box Office is it is far better than the first two in series. While the first two have done the magic for slick action and stylish presentation, this third movie has the real content and storyline. If John Abraham and Hrithik Roshan are utilized for their romantically best qualities, Aamir is a performer and thus producers pulled the best to offer us the best. Problem for ‘Dhoom 3’ is with the run time of almost 3 hours. Never to miss, no where did I really felt bored though watched just after the show of ‘Biryani.’
Commercially, Bollywood films are faring extra ordinary these days. When it’s the package of superb performances, awesome stunts, visual grandeur, energetic music, enchanting glamour and engrossing story, why cannot we speculate ‘Dhoom 3’ as the next highest grossing film of Indian cinema? Kudos Vijay Krishna Acharya for offering an ultra cool flick which can be enjoyed equally by audiences of all genres and all ages.
