Didn't live up to my expectations, give this one a pass.
Dishoom was a movie I was looking forward to since June. I thought it would be a entertaining masala movie. But this film was very disappointing because the movie falls flat and is very rushed. It needed crisper story telling and the characters just show up and do not have a background at all and they all seem very forced considering it's 120 min run-time. Apart from the negatives, this film does have positives the action sequences are simply breathtaking and outstanding. It's fast paced and adrenaline rush type of feeling you get keeps you engaged. It has a well-written first half but another negative the second half! It is very dumb and boring that it has a thousand type of endings because of the plot holes. Speaking about the ending itself, it is very rushed and does not end well.
The performances, John-Varun's chemistry is very good. John Abraham is not as good as expected he was OK I guess. Varun Dhawan is pretty good to be honest his take on Junaid is very fun to watch. Jacqueline Fernandez one of my favorite actresses is wasted but not bad. Saqib Saleem is decent. Akshaye Khanna though makes an awesome comeback I loved his performance in here and was disappointed that he did not have much screen time he is a very underrated actor. The guest appearances. Akshay Kumar is a delight to watch along with Vijay Raaz. Nargis Fakhri is MEH! Parineeti Chopra is also meh...
The story is well-written for the first half but is bad in the second.
The action sequences are awesome the cinematography for it is done amazingly especially the helicopter sequence. The locations chosen were also pretty great.
The music is really good Sau Tarah Ke is a song I've been listening to on a loop and it is one of the best party song of the year! Love it. Toh Dishoom is a song that will get you up and has a good beat and is very catchy. Jaaneman Aah is decent.
Overall, Dishoom is entertaining in parts and has amazing action sequences, could have been longer at least 135 min approx. But it is an average movie and forgettable by a week. I will give it a 5/10 the percent will be 60% and the grade will be C-.
Thank you so much for reading my review on this outdated sound effect but note to self: Not one Dishoom was heard in this movie!
