Shonali says that a Mauser 9mm does 3000FPS. In reality no handgun can do that. Only assault rifles like the AK, M16AI can deliver a muzzle velocity of that magnitude. Mauser 9mm can have a muzzle velocity around 2000-2200 FPS. See more »
Dhoom 1 wasn't a great movie but was refreshing and different! Dhoom 2..it's bigger, glossier and gets skimpier! Not just in terms of the clothes women wear, but also in terms of the script..if there is any! It's obvious that Mr Ghandvi lost focus, with all the star cast, glamour and money to splurge on the look. No doubt that the look was Super cool or flashy, locales breath taking, but if that is all that you are looking for then Dhoom 2 is for you!
I don't expect movies..especially Hindi movies to cater to some High IQ needs of some viewers..I for one completely switch off my brain during the movie..but even by that standards there are some scenes that are too much to handle!! Especially the so called Chemistry scenes between ASH and Hrithik..oh god save me!!!
Now, on to my take on the stars of the movie,
Hrithik - was Simply Amazing. I am not a big Hrithik fan, have never been, but if there is any reason to watch this movie, it is Mr A! Roshan as A acts well, does some amazing stunts, dances beautifully (now that is nothing new!) and looks absolutely FAB!!! the movie belongs to him..
ASH as sunehri - the less said the better..I may be a bit biased here for I am no fan of her's ..but seriously ASH is good as long as her mouth is shut or she is not trying to act (or over act!) seriously she is the most beautiful woman in the world ..but can someone teach her acting??? She looks good even if they may have made her a bit extra tanned!!
Bipasha - well she was definitely a treat for the men ..but thats just abt it..not that you expect anything more from her..
uday - he is the 'funny guy' in the movie..he is funny even when he does a serious role (in some other movies!) so ..well...
ABBY BABY - now thats one man i went to watch the movie for,,but i was disappointed..he looks so tired and disinterested through out the movie..obviously he couldn't resolve his wt problems and being biased towards him its becuz of his preparation for guru..but his character was the least developed and all attention was given to hrithik!! but don't worry abby baby you have guru waiting! having said that ..he was good in two of the scenes he meets hrithik!
Overall verdict - if you are easy going, tolerant and generally not bothered, have time or a big fan of hrithik i guess this movie will appeal to you. Else, don;t worry you are not missing much
Dhoom 1 or Dhoom 2 - my choice Dhoom 1
