Dumb
12 June 2014 | by (India) – See all my reviews

E-Niwas who made the cult film SHOOL followed by the decent LOVE KE LIYE KUCH BHI KAREGA which flopped came back with DUM(2003) which was a flop. The film has a done to death story which works against it The story is not just predictable, it's done to death However some scenes are well handled like Vivek clash with Atul Kulkarni, Several other scenes like Mukesh Rishi's flashback too is well handled but the film gets prolonged in second half and finally ends on a predictable note,The director too resorts to nonsense things to move the story forward like Vivek lifting up 80ks of Weight.

Direction is okay but the script suffers due to predictability

Music is decent, Title Song was superbly choreographed, rest songs are okay

Vivek Oberoi plays his part well, this was his 4th film after COMPANY,ROAD and SAATHIYA which won him laurels but this film flopped Dia Mirza is okay, Atul Kulkarni is simply outstanding and makes you hate him, Govind Namdeo,Yashpal Sharma and rest are typecast Mukesh Rishi is okay,Sheeba is okay
