The world's oldest desert, the Namib - A solitary railway line - A royal family on a royal journey. From the sky - like lightening - A flash - the centuries old royal crown is stolen. Back in action - DHOOM:2 reinvents the action comedy genre and propels it into the 21st century. Ali's (Uday Chopra) dream of becoming a police officer has come true.

Enter Aryan - Mr.A (Hrithik Roshan) A high tech international thief after pulling off a series of impossible heists all over the world. His next target is Mumbai, India. The case is given to ACP Jai Dixit and Ali helping them put the pieces of the puzzle together is ACP Shonali Bose (Bipasha Basu). For the last two years Shonali has been tracking these amazing thefts and is now an expert on this thief, who no one has seen. Once in Mumbai Mr.A finds his ...Written by
Nonetheless, Roshan's role required him to perform several dangerous stunts involving activities such as roller-blading, sand boarding and snow boarding. See more »
Shonali says that a Mauser 9mm does 3000FPS. In reality no handgun can do that. Only assault rifles like the AK, M16AI can deliver a muzzle velocity of that magnitude. Mauser 9mm can have a muzzle velocity around 2000-2200 FPS. See more »
I went to the theater yesterday with a almost no expectations from this movie, as I had hated its predecessor (Dhoom). But it succeeded in confounding my expectations. This movie was worse than I expected. I felt awkward even sitting there and watching that drivel from the first scene to the last. The "story" is outlined this way. Hrithik Roshan is the meticulous and extremely successful Mr.A, who pulls off the most impossible robberies. He jumps of trains, manages to have his own against the most well prepared security forces, with gravity defying stunts and kicks, not to forget the "disguises". He is "disguised" as the queen to rob the queen's jewels. He steals the world's most priceless artefacts, not to sell them. Now enter, Jai Dixit and his half idiotic, low IQ friend, Ali (Abhishek and Uday). Their first scene where they capture a bunch of nitwit criminals is as unbelievable as it can get. He is joined by college buddy Shonali (Bipasha), in the hunt for Mr.A. They are always given the slip, by the wily Mr.A, who continues to rob the priceless items, with his brains and gizmos par excellence (how he funds these gizmos, god knows). Mr.A later meets his soul mate, during a robbery, where Suneheri (Aishwarya) uses The "A" name to rob a castle of a priceless sword. Suneheri and Mr.A form a deadly alliance and give the police a slip all the way. The story loses whatever little sanity it possessed, at this point and begins to meander way off course. This movie would have been slightly better with a fewer songs and some believable action scenes. It also desperately needs Direction and a script. Everyone except Hrithik sleepwalk through the movie. Aishwarya especially proves once again, that she is more a glam doll than a serious actor. Abhishek Bachchan sleepwalks through the film and his "Cool-dude", Shelock Holmes-esquire demeanour begins to irritate. Uday Chopra tries his hand at comedy, but comes up with lame ones most of the time. Bipasha Basu...Why was she there in the movie..?? Makes you wonder. Hrithik "saves" the day for Dhoom, doing some justice to his role. Coming to the technicals. Direction is not of very high quality. The Director (Gadhvi) has focused more on bikinis and skimpy clothes, rather than trying to make a slick, taught thriller. The dialogues are forced and have no impact whatsoever. The story could have been told much better with the actual presence of a SCRIPT. Pritam seems to be directing the same type of music. The music scores nothing. The cinematography shines like a diamond in all this muck, but could have gone easy on the slow motion. Half the scenes seem to be in slow motion.
After all this, I can only say. If your spouse is nagging you really bad on a beautiful weekend and all you need, is to sleep. Then you might consider watching this film.
