Dishoom entertains, but only in bits and pieces. The beginning is promising, what with India’s top cricketer named Viraj Sharma (name picked up from Virat Kohli, perhaps) being kidnapped just ahead of an India-Pakistan finale match and top cop John Abraham parachuted into a Middle Eastern Country to find him. It all begins well. John’s roughness, Varun’s humour, et al.
Till the time one comes to the second half, the film begins to distract you.
A formula masala potboiler, seasoned with many cliches, action sequences and some eye-candy moments is the stuff Dishoom is made of. Another disappointing factor is that both the villains Akshay Khanna and Rahul Dev fail to make that classic danger men impact, coming across as ‘pheeka’ and ‘thanda’.
WHAT SAVES THE FILM?
Style, Six-packs and Swag
One reason that would pull the audiences to the theatres would be the handsome hearthrobs’ John and Varun’s sculpted hot bods, and the drop-dead gorgeous ladies Jacqueline Fernandez and Nargis Fakhri who look stunning in every frame.
High Voltage Action Scenes
A lot of adrenaline rush can come in via the action scenes of the film, which are reportedly shot extensively and expensively too.
Parineeti Chopra’s and Jacqueline Fernandez’s item numbers can also prove to be the highlight as well as star attraction of the movie.
