A Classic
22 December 2013 | by shrikant-narayananSee all my reviews

Dhoom3 is a classic. I was never a fan of Dhoom1 and 2. Dhoom 3 is simply superb thanks to Aamir Khan and Jackie Shroff. This film is like watching any Hindi classic of 1970-85 period (of Rajesh Khanna, Dharmendra and not of Mithun). Jackie Shroff's acting was another highlight and Jackie's acting resembled /infact reminded me of the intense acting of Rajesh Khanna. Hope this time every award show gives away Best actor award to only one man Aamir Khan and Jackie gets award for supporting actor. Situations have been deliberately created to ensure the police team of Abhishek and Uday catch Aamir. The only weakness in the film is the introductory action - scene of Abhsihek and Uday - which was pathetic. Direct Robbery scenes have not been shown - now that's okay as we have many other films showing how thieves rob and so is not a flaw!! Abhishek,Uday,Katrina don't have much to do. Katrina has been made to dance very well. This film is a must watch. Worth watching in theaters. After long time a film from which my eyes never ever strayed from the screen. A clean family entertainer. Music of the song Tu Hai junOon was great. Worth your money. Plus point is Aamir Khan's characterization of his double role of Sahir and Samar and strong story-line.

I Guess all those reviews - which say the film has goof-ups and term the film a disaster - r plain idiots.Those who love films of 1970-85 would like dhoom 3. This film is way above Chennai Expres or Kirsh 2 and 3. if this film is called a disaster then may be people's tastes have changed- they want vulgar scenes and jokes or 3rd rate Masala film (like Rowdy Rathore or Grand Masti or Ek Tha Tiger or Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani or expect that length of the film to be below 2 hours).
