At a Bangkok 'Asian Bhai Meet' the Godfather meets with several gangsters, reviews the reduction in revenue, and decides to induct fresh blood. While Fursat Lala decides to hand-over this task to his son, Zac; Mungi Lal, a bachelor, has no heir, save for an long-estranged maternal nephew, Kamal, and is asked to find him and include him in this gang within 30 days. Mungi and his associate, Jignesh, head out to Mumbai in an effort to locate his estranged sister, Angoori, and her son - in vain - as there is no trace of the duo. He recruits the services of Private Detective Johnny English and instructs him to locate Kamal. Johnny does locate him and takes him to meet with Mungi - a move that will result in nothing but hilarious chaos when Mungi tells him that he has already located Kamal. Things get even more confusing after a woman shows up - also claiming to be Kamal!! Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

3 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I found this disc as a bonus DVD inside the Kambakht Ishq DVD case (I guess they felt that KI wasn't an adequate enough movie so they tried to up-sell it or soften the blow with this marketing tactic) either that or the movie was put in there to ask the viewer this question: If you think Kambakht Ishq is bad, then what would you say about Dhoom Dadakka.

Even as a film that spoofs other films (Race, Dhoom, Dhoom 2, Lage Raho Munna Bhai, Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam etc.) it ends up as a hopeless flop that manages to unintentionally spoof itself. I am already accustomed to seeing Gulshan Grover in fluff like this but I just can't even believe Anupam Kher agreed to be in this film.

The useless plot is centered around two rival underworld dons (played by Kher and Grover) the former is in search of his nephew to inherit his territory while the latter is trying to convince his queer son to embrace his masculine side and carry on the family business. The songs were good and kept the pace of the movie but it just was not enough to save it.
