A gang of bikers headed by the cool-headed and arrogant Kabir is on a robbing spree in Mumbai. They rob establishments and then zip away on their superbikes. ACP Jai Dixit is the case in-charge and he recruits a bumbling bike mechanic and racer named Ali to chase the gang on a bike and help Jai nab them. Kabir accepts the challenge, and pulls off another robbery amidst a function. This causes Jai and Ali to call it off. Jai resigns from the police force and Ali goes back to his daily job. Meanwhile Kabir has lost one of his team members and recruits Ali for their final job in Goa. The action shifts from the congested Mumbai traffic to the sunny Goa for the final showdown between cops and robbers. Written by Soumitra

Watchable bike movie, reasonable time-pass film
22 February 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This is a moderately engaging bike movie. It's not very exciting but is reasonable time-pass entertainment. John Abraham plays the amoral thief and while he's an average actor, he certainly looks cool on a bike with sunglasses. Uday Chopra is surprisingly funny and not as annoying as usual. Abhishek Bachchan is stuck with the conventional role. He tries hard but the focus of the film is clearly on John. The title track "Dhoom Macha Le" is pretty catchy and you may leave the theater humming the tune. Esha Deol and Rimi Sen have little to do except look gorgeous. Watchable film.

Overall 5/10
