Storyline

The tale begins in Mumbai where a sophisticated gang of robbers is sweeping through the city, giving nightmares to the police department. They come like wind, sweep the place and disappear on their hi-tech bikes - the slickest and fastest riding machines on the road. Officer Jai Dixit (Abhishek Bachchan) is brought in on the case. Soon he is on the trail of the robbers - a gang headed by Kabir (John Abraham), an evil perfectionist with an attitude. Jai ropes in the services of Ali (Uday Chopra), a happy-go-lucky garage mechanic and a prodigious bike rider. The two reluctant partners join forces, and soon Jai realizes that the clown can ride bikes like the wind. Kabir soon catches on to Jai-Ali's teaming up and his arrogance pushes him to take up the challenge openly. From the mean streets of Mumbai, the chase shifts to the sun kissed beaches of Goa. And so starts the hunt - where sometimes the hunter becomes the hunted. Dhoom reinvents the classic cops and robbers tale and brings it ... Written by Official Source

Glossy, fast-moving and amusing action film
18 February 2007 | by See all my reviews

Cards on the table, here, "Dhoom" was my introduction to the delights of Bollywood cinema. "Dhoom"'s a genuinely enjoyable movie. It's stylish and slick - I enjoyed the use of split screen at various points through the movie and the cinematography is glossy and polished. The film is quite amusing, it has some decent action sequences, the songs are likable and the pace is fast-moving.

The cast are excellent. Abhishek Bachchan plays the cop, Jai Dixit, on the trail of professional thieves, lead by John Abraham. Dixit is aided by Ali Akbar (Uday Chopra), a thief, who provides the comic element to proceedings. Abraham is a superb baddie and provides a great foil to Bachchan's character.

The female cast are beautiful but provide little substance to the plot.

Although one action sequence borrows heavily from "The Matrix Reloaded", the film is an enjoyable roller coaster and a great way to pass 2 hours on a rainy day.

8 out of 10. A fun popcorn movie.
