If you are looking for a plot in Director Rohit Dhawan’s action comedy ‘Dishoom’, you shouldn’t be expecting it. Like he did in ‘Desi Boyz’, this one is fun to watch if you are looking for some bromance. John Abraham and Varun Dhawan play it well as two cops who become buddies while working in an important case. While John’s two expressions work for him here as a stern and humourless cop, Varun’s energy coupled with his comic timing is just what was needed to make the two worthy of being watched together.

There is also quite a hilarious cameo by Akshay Kumar playing a gay who gets the two cops stripped. Jacqueline Fernandez is just there for the sake of it; just that she has more screen space than Nargis Fakhri in a cameo too. Saqib Saleem bats well like a real batsman. While it’s nice to have Akshaye Khanna back on screen after a hiatus, it is also disappointing because he is hardly there. A fine actor like him could have made a better comeback.

‘Dishoom’ is fast-paced and it’s entertaining for most of the time. The action is just okay; the comedy better.

You won't recall it once you leave the theatre. Perhaps, a little thrill and suspense could have made it a really good watch.

About Abhirup Dhar

I don't watch movies... I live them! Let me introduce myself. Abhirup Dhar was born in Kolkata and is still being brought up in India. A banker by profession, he is filmy to the core and is passionate about reviewing movies and writing. He likes to live on his own… he likes to be blunt, sarcastic, famous, infamous, confident, over-confident, moody at times… he likes to be himself. He is imperfect because perfection is boring. His love for movies dates back to his childhood days when he studied in a boarding school. A three-month Winter Vacation every year… and he made sure he watched as many movies then. Parents thought it was a phase... he knew it was Passion and he knew it back then itself. The craziness to watch movies on the Big Screen began during the last two years of school when he literally bunked to town so that he could catch up with the new Hindi Movie releases. Some thought he was plain crazy. He confirmed it was Passion... yet again. The hard fact is that not always can you walk a path you are passionate about. You have expectations to fulfill and Life to be made. But Life gives you chances and you have to grab them. So... here is he... your friendly critic who will be giving you his Verdict every week so that you can decide which release is worth your moolah and which is not! See you at the Movies!
