Goofs

Both actors Hrithik Roshan (Aryan/Mr A) and Aishwarya Rai (Sunehri) are naturally very fair-complexioned. But the character styling in this movie required them each to appear well-tanned - via bronzing makeup, as needed. In their 'Dhoom Again' title song dance together over the end credits, however: because of the various lifts required by the choreography, the longer they dance the more of Aishwarya's 'tan' accumulates on Hrithik's white trousers.

Quotes

Aryan Singh: [to Sunehri] You're good at what you do, so I'll give you some advice. Thieves shouldn't have partners. Stay alone. You'll stay alive... because if you're alone there's no chance of getting betrayed. Not even by your own self.

Double omelette with extra cheese BUT a single toast!
25 November 2006 | by danzsSee all my reviews

Let's cut to the chase and first get the basics done away with. Saw this movie today, and these are a few points that I feel should be answered first.

1. As a sequel to 'Dhoom,' is this movie better than the first one? Yes!

2. Is it worth watching? If you liked 'Dhoom,' this one is a must see!

3. Avoid it if you expect any drama, or food for intellectual thought. This is all about living life in the fast and furious lane.

Coming to the nittty-gritty of it… Before you watch this movie, spare a moment and find out why you want to watch this flick. If it's for the hype or the curiosity value the first offering delivered AND you liked the first one, then I highly recommend it, since it delivers more than you expected… Bike aficionados might be a bit disappointed as you will find only one bike chase sequence here… and if it reminds you of the one in MI-2, kindly take no offence. The director here is creative enough to come out with his own version.

D2 is a movie that revolves around mastermind thief 'A' (Hrithik) who makes robbery into art and has earned international acclaim for the same. Next on his list is to commit the crime in the city of Mumbai where he shall meet Inspector Jai (Abhishek) and his sidekick Ali (Uday) to foil all attempts. Now this is a criminal who like Val Kilmer in the… 'Saint'… keeps changing his appearance. So no one really knows how this chappy looks.

But our desi version of Tango (Jai) aided by Cash (Ali), are quick enough to understand his mindset and identify the next place in Mumbai this international artist-thief wants to add to his kitty.

Despite their best efforts which include Inspector SHOW (Bipasha- No pun intended) this thief manages to take home his prize. What follows next is a roller coaster ride of twists and turns which I better omit since it will steal the thunder of watching the movie. For real added incentive is our desi Catwoman (Aishwarya)

What works for D2 is slick editing, a better script than the first one, getting to watch Bipasha and Ash who look beautiful, especially in skimpy clothes which look great on them, exotic international locales (beaches / waterfalls included) And a Hrithik who carries the entire show to perfection. He suits the pace and style of this movie to the square inch and makes for some sizzling chemistry with Ash on screen for the first time. Hey! even the songs are quite foot-tapping.

Also watching Abby Baby and him sharing the same screen space in a few shots is awesome. As expected, Uday gets the best one-liners and carries on from where he left off in 'Dhoom.' Great cinematography that the movie showcases setting the tempo with its opening sequence of a running train (though the scene did bring back memories for the opening sequence to 'Bad Day at Black Rock -1955')

That the movie missed out on a 10/10 from me was only for the reason that though the heist sequences are quite innovative and the stunts quite good… they simply leave a lot of questions unanswered??? Rimi Sen purely serves the purpose of a hanger and is soon forgotten.

Rest of the cast is simply there… their characters float along, hardly given a chance for development. One walks out of the theatre only remembering it to be a movie about Hrithik and Ash supported by 'OTHERS.' Some of the scenes are simply hard to digest... since I have no intention to spoil your appetite my only hint goes for keeping a close eye on the first FEMALE :-)who comes on screen. That should give you a preview of how CORNY few of other scenes are likely to get.

But all said and done, a viewer should keep all that aside and watch this movie for its pure entertainment value.

So keep your analytical brain out of the equation and watch this movie to add some 'extra Dhoom' to a mundane day.
