Storyline

Siddhant Dheer lives a wealthy lifestyle with his brother, Shashank, and sister, Anu. Both Siddhant and Shashank work for India's Anti-Terrorist Cell (ATC), along with Aditya and Aditi. After interrogating a suspect named Altaf, they get information that terrorists are planning a major strike in Canada that may endanger 25000 lives during the month of May. Altaf tells them the mastermind behind this attack is a terrorist named Jambhal, who has a contact named Himmat Mehndi. Shashank, and Aditya fly to Canada, meet with ATC Agent Neha, and then abduct Himmat, who denies that profusely. The duo team up with Canadian Police Officer Danish "Dan", and together attempt to piece together whatever information they have gathered from Himmat, only to find out that no one is who they claim they are, and the duo find themselves entrapped in a web of deceit and lies, with no clues as to who is behind the threat - the countdown for which has already begun.

Great entertainment
10 July 2005 | by See all my reviews

I liked Dus a lot even though some unfair comparisons may be made with Hollywood thrillers.

I liked Dus mainly because of its because of its slick editing. I also liked the performances of Abhishek, Shilpa Shetty, Sunjay Dutt and most of all, Pankaj Kapoor.

I loved the music. It's sharp, original and melodious without descending into chaos or plain stealing.

The cinematography was fabulous and the dialogues great.

Shipla Shetty is a treat to look at,gorgeous without being half naked or cheap.

Abhishek is going to be the next King of Bollywood. Sanjay looks mature and is an honest actor. Suneil Shetty hams throughout the movie and one is forced to wonder why he was there at all. He is so irrelevant to the script.

Zayed has a long way to go though he is quite good at shaking a leg.

More than anything else the movie is hugely entertaining even though a large dose of "willing suspension of disbelief" is required in some instances.
