During the third bank heist, one door is visible from the outside, though inside you see several entry doors for the SWAT team members. This is because the exterior shots are from the Museum of Science and Industry and the interior shots are from City Hall. See more »
I haven't been a big fan of the Dhoom series. So I wasn't sure how better it could be from the other two. My instincts told me that I had to trust the master's instincts, for the master has an incredible knack of getting the best out of his directors. After all, he has delivered every time in different conditions as in '1947 Earth', 'Ghajini' and '3 Idiots'. A little tentative, I finished my cigarette and walked into the auditorium. To my surprise, I found myself transported to an amazing fantasy world. There are inescapable nods to the larger than life aerobatics and fanciful feats of Salman Bhai and Rajnikanth.
I am surprised that naysayers are calling it a copy of The Prestige. Didn't the same people call Ghajini a copy of Memento and Munnabhai a copy of Patch Adams? The real rip-offs are movies like Bheja Fry, Criminal (copy of The Fugitive), Zeher (from Out of Time), Emraan Hashmi's The Train (copied from Derailed) etc.
How can I end the review without commenting on the master's look? His physique is well-chiseled and toned in need of the character -- a big nod of approval from our generation of fitness freaks. His hairdos are always talked about and this time he keeps it subtle, yet a well-groomed look.
As an actor, Aamir shines and he shines well. It sounds like a cliché but he gives another career-best performance. His passion for his craft is highly commendable. Uday Chopra is cheery and respectfully renders himself to the sidelines. Abhishek Bachchan broods a little too much but is okay at times. He doesn't have the pull to make a 'massy' entry on rickshaw. The young lad Siddharth Nigam is brilliant. It's a treat to see Jaggu Dada (Jackie Shroff). He fits in so easily to his character. As much as I enjoyed the first time, on the second viewing it got even better. All is indeed well.
