MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Dishoom’ unable to deliver action

Rohit Dhawan’s new film ‘Dishoom’ starring bollywood’s two handsome hunks, John Abraham (Kabir Shergill) and Varun Dhawan (Junaid Ansari) and the gorgeous Jacqueline Fernandez (Ishika) released this Friday on 29th July, 2016. The movie set out high expectations with heartthrob actors like these, however it came out to be a huge disappointment to most of the audience.

In the beginning of the movie you will perceive it to be a kickass action movie with a great deal of intensity level, but as the movie rolls further, you will realize that the film is just filled with lame jokes and a vague action sequence. Rohit Dhawan’s previous release, Desi Boys, recorded a positive volume of appreciation with a nice plot in mind, but with ‘Dishoom’ you have to lower down your expectations.

The story revolves around a kidnap of a young Indian Cricketer Viraj Sharam played by Saqib Saleem, who is abducted hours before the India-Pakistan cricket finale. The IBC is compelled to contact the minister of external affairs in India for help as the famous batsman goes missing. The Indian government then sends the angry young officer, Kabir, to help the Middle Eastern police to find the cricketer. There, Kabir is accompanied by a careless yet ambitious police officer Junaid and both team up to search Viraj. On their journey they bump into Ishika, a smartphone thief who ends up giving them the clues to find Viraj, and finally discover Waagha to be the mastermind behind the abduction, played by Akshaye Khanna, who is looking incredibly hot in a negative role. If you’re familiar with Jason Statham’s Transporter series, who will definitely be able to relate Akshaye Khanna’s looks with the Hollywood’s superstar.


The movie is filled with ridiculed action scenes and a weak storyline, but if you’re looking for some glamorous entertainment and enjoy the shirtless John Abraham and Varun Dhawan, you should be able to like the film. The director tried to make an action number, a somewhat similar adaptation of the Rush Hour series, but is unable to deliver a satisfactory storyline. You will also see special appearances by Akshay Kumar, Nargis Fakhri and Parineeti Chopra in between the movie that keep you paced with looking out for more.

The movie is senseless yet will keep you interested for a predictable climax, mixed with Bollywood mystique that you might enjoy at a night-off.
