D3 blurs the line b/w Bollywood and Hollywood
25 December 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Dhoom 3 is brilliant. The production standards are close to Hollywood. Vijay Krishna Acharya strikes back as the director after the not so successful but different Tashan. The movie is inspired by various Hollywood flicks, but what matters is how the content is packaged for the Bollywood audience.

As for the performances, it is an Aamir Khan show! Aamir as usual is fantastic. Abhishekh and Uday play their parts well and also help to remind us that the film is a Dhoom series (otherwise it is easy to forget that with the Aamir show on). Katrina adds glamour and tries to make the best of whatever screen time she has.

Technically, the film is top notch too. Cinematography and background score are very good, along w/ some good songs, but would have preferred less of or a different version of the "Dhoom" background score. The story (albeit a little on the darker side than the earlier installments but that is not necessarily bad) is adequate to keep the film running "entertainingly" for 3 hours. However, I may have preferred a slightly different ending.

Overall, it is a must watch for Bollywood action movie lovers!!


PS to address some of the unnecessary negative reviews:

1. It borrows heavily from Hollywood --> Big deal? It is hard to find a truly original Bollywood film. May be Mughal-e-Azam. Even Sholay has shades of Magnificent 7 and Once upon a time in the west. FTR, other Dhoom movies have been inspired by Hollywood as well, for e.g. Ocean series (Dhoom 1) and The Entrapment (Dhoom 2) and ofc the underlying Fast and Furious theme in all movies. Ignoring how the series is designed, all of a sudden being "inspired" has become an issue for some!

2. Stunts do not appear real --> Let's do the old dishoom-dishoom where the lead actor jumps on 3 villains who then pass out. I guess ppl never watched the Fast and Furious series. Or you go to a Sci- Fi such as Avatar and remark what you saw in Avatar cannot be real, make a believable film. May be some folks even wondered how an old and handicapped (also presumably out of shape since the film never showed him working out) Thakur beat Gabbar in the climax leg-to-leg combat in Sholay (FYI, there is something called cinematic convenience/liberty)

3. Aamir Khan acted in a monotonous way --> I guess, he was supposed to do fancy mannerisms and shake his head like a yo-yo. I think Aamir's was a well measured performance

4. This is not a typical Aamir Khan movie --> Actors try different genres (If not, Connery would have kept playing 007). If you expected a Rang de Basanti or DCH or 3I, you probably needed to do some research before walking in to the movie hall (Unless one expected D3 to turn in to 3I/DCG/RdB, a different genre, because it had Aamir in it. An unrealistic expectation!). This film is more in the Ghajani mold

5. Story has loop-holes --> Next time, let's request Dhoom series makers to base their film on novels like the Godfather and even get Gulzar Sahab to direct it. May be that would be a meaningful "Dhoom" experience

I could go on and on, but in short, this film was not supposed to be a documentary. Enjoy the film for what it is meant to be for!
