Dhoom: 3 Review: The third installment in the Dhoom series, ‘Dhoom 3’ is Escapist Cinema At Its Best! A thrilling joyride, that comes in-tact with a solid script, superb twists & turns, skilled direction & a brilliant performance by the ever-reliable Aamir Khan, who anchors the film with a super act! ‘Dhoom 3’ Synopsis: Sahir played by Aamir Khan, decides to avenge the injustice meted out to his father played by Jackie Shroff, and how the cop, Jai played by Abhishek Bachchan, gets on his trail. Be patient through initial half an hour where key characters are introduced in few silly scenes although Katrina Kaif’s entry is spellbinding. And then Aamir Khan takes the charge and the real cinematic treat starts where dialogs, emotions, acting, story gets center stage.
‘Dhoom 3’ is the best Dhoom film till date. The Screenplay Written by Vijay Krishna Acharya, who also has Directed the film, is solid. The twists & turns it delivers in the narrative, are simply superb. The first-hour is crisp & action-packed, with a twist at the intermission that is sure to leave you spell-bound. The second-hour has lesser action, but more emotion & drama, which frankly, is the highpoint of the enterprise. There is not a single dull moment in the film, in fact, this escapist fare only gets better & better as it progresses. Vijay Krishna Acharya’s Direction is skilled. He handles both the departments, of a Writer & Director, exceedingly well. Only one idea was adopted from Christopher Nolan’s ” The Prestige” & very few dull moments between Abhishek & Uday i guess you will ignore these minor issues.
Cinematography captures the dusky look of Chicago marvelously. Editing is razor-sharp. Art & Costume Design are lavish. Music by Pritam is energetic. Action-Sequences are of high-regard. Make-Up is fabulously done. Dhoom 3 was written blockbuster on it before its release and good thing is it surpasses your expectations when it comes to bollywood action thrillers. Performance-Wise: Aamir is the soul of ‘Dhoom 3’. He enacts his part with amazing commitment & brings tremendous diversity to his brilliant portrayal. He’s one of the prime reasons why ‘Dhoom 3’ turns into a memorable affair. Abhishek Bachchan is excellent. Uday Chopra is sincere. Katrina Kaif looks gorgeous & delivers a fair performance. Jackie Shroff is fantastic in a brief role. Child Artiste Siddharth Nigam is wonderful. On the whole, ‘Dhoom 3’ is a solid entertainer!
