Storyline

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

Trivia

The film's concept came to Aditya Chopra while he was watching Kaala Patthar (1979), one of his father's action thrillers. Not surprisingly, the title came from one of its songs - "Dhoom Mache Dhoom," which was slightly adapted to become "Dhoom Machale." However, that film starred Amitabh Bachchan, while this one stars his son Abhishek Bachchan. See more »

Goofs

In the chase after the bank robbery Abhishek fires a bullet which makes the bag fall off John's shoulder. Immediately in the next frame we can see John escaping the second bullet shot by Abhishek, but in that we can also see John still carrying the backpack. See more »

Quotes

Kabir: After Kabir crashes Rahul's Car... You are very luck Rahul, you could have been in that car too. We are thieves... We tend to disappear in smoke, the moment police see fire, its all over... Nobody can break my rules... Not even me.

Adrenaline rush - welcome to Bollywood!
5 September 2004 | by (San Jose, CA, US) – See all my reviews

High speed chases, extraordinary camera-work, wizardry technical effects, and sensuous bombshells - the thrilling "sub-genre" of adrenaline rush has to come to Bollywood with a bang! Hosting a cast of not-so impressive stars, the high-speed motorbikes sweep you off your seat. This is true Hollywood-style thrill. Mishcievious zoom-ins of scantily clad heroines add to the testosterone flavor of this film. A fantastic musical score with fast-paced beats spice things up even more. For the first time, Uday Chopra isn't annoying. Maybe now, he'll actually be able to get a role in a film not under his family's banner. Abhishek is good except for a couple of scenes where he tries to act like his dad. Note to Abhishek: never attempt comedy. John Abraham, in his short role, is definitely the best of the cast. Esha Deol has a cool role. This is one of Bollywood's best action productions!
