Because I am in Amsterdam, and Indian movies are released here a week behind the India release (with Dutch sub-titles), I was surely tempted to see a Bollywood movie in Netherlands. Dhoom 2 was released and in India had opened in full houses. The movie boasted of great music, great action, great dance, great star cast a bigger canvas, a bigger story and bigger stunts.
I had also heard later that the movie is not good except Hritik Roshan. With this mixed reviews in my head, I went to see Dhoom 2 in Pathe Arena theatre. Pathe Arena is a theatre that is located a bit far in South of Amsterdam. The theatre hall is good. I think the biggest of all the Pathe theatres.
I was happy to see many Indians in the movie hall. The movie unlike in India did not have an interval break in between.
Now the movie. Hritik was fantastic, he carried the movie on his shoulder. Not a single move of his was out of place. Each expression, each twitch on his face represented the emotion that was undergoing the character.
But the movie was bad. Abhishek acted as if he was acting in his first movie. Ashwairya looked starved to death except her face her body was ugly to look at. Adiya Chopra he had the best dialogues and punch lines but he does not have anything in him to carry off his character or such wonderful lines. Though they bring some smiles on your face the lines were really good.
The songs were filmed nicely especially the first dance of Hritik "Dhoom Again" was as good as "Main Aisa Kyu Hu".
This was the first time I was disappointed by Masand Ki Pasand's review who gave 3 out of 5 stars to the movie and appreciated the movie by saying that the Director knows the what audience loves and wants and delivered that in the movie. I could not dis-agree more with him. It seemed that Masand was blown away by the movie hall full of youngster in hyped first show; or may be Masand was paid (in cash or kind) to write a good review by the Film Directors. All in all not a worth seeing the movie except Hritik. If you are Hritik fan go for the movie.
My brother roared about the high level of action scenes but that too can not help me say that avoid this movie. It is bad!
