Strong performances by Diya Mirza and Viveik Oberoi
19 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As the title suggests, it takes a lot of Dum(guts) to go up against corruption within any police force, but Viveik Oberoi, who plays the main protagonist, a young man whose life long dream is to become a man in uniform is determined to step up to the plate. The film revolves around this young man and his daily family life which is shattered when a simple outing with his girlfriend (played by Diya Mirza) lands him on the most wanted list of a very corrupt police inspector whom Viveik's character attacks in defense of Diya's. His family and friends become a target as a battle of who's who ensues for the next one and a half hour of the film, in which there is a lot of heartbreak, bloodshed and tears and the audience is left at the edge of their seat to see who will emerge triumphant in this battle? Will it be the plucky police wannabe boy with big dreams and a short temper, or the corrupt iron-fisted police inspector which a thirst for blood? To find out, don't miss a single second of Dum!
