Only Aamir could have done it. Any other actor would be sabotaged the whole drama. “Hats” off to Aamir!
Dhoom 3 should renamed to Aamir Khan’s greatest tryst with double role. Although a weak script, and even weaker first half; Dhoom 3 is a full and out masala entertainer, and should be treated that way only. Mixing sensibilities and technicalities of movie making will take the fun away.
The 15 year old kid sitting besides me was thrilled at each and every bike stunt being showcased, and the uncle besides me loved Katrina Kaif’s performance in her song “Kamli” that he was clapping once the song finished. The movie has some amazing action stunts and the bikes have become more menacing and the stunts more devilish. Story is weak, direction way below the standard and the ‘story-telling’ technique is going wayward. Unfortunately, the same old Chopra family traditions were applied. Oh yes, there is one kiss as well.
Aamir Khan stole the show, with his amazingly intense acting and delivery. There are two Aamirs in the movie, and the double role he has played can be compared with that of Robot’s Rajanikanth or Dilip Kumar’s Ram aur Shyam. It can easily be equalled with Ishwar’s Anil Kapoor as well. (Disclaimer: Aamir is my favorite Bollywood actor, and I am heavily biased towards him. Sorry.. 🙂 )
Abhishek Bachchan and Uday Chopra, well, they were just extras. Katrina Kaif has two songs, and few interesting dialogue sessions in between, and did her best. She danced, she cracked jokes, she romanced and she did her part good.
Uday Chopra should seriously officially retire. His stupid smile and antics have not changed a bit since last 10 years. His presence irritated the screen and shifted the focus away from the main plot. Abhishek was looking cool, and don’t know why, he is not picking up movies. He has matured a lot, and in a way, he too played double role, though for a short time.
The whole movie has been shot in Chicago, USA, and the songs are ok. Malang and Kamli were above average and Tu hi Junoon by Mohit Chauhan was good.
The climax of the movie was awesomely shot, and the ending will surprise you. I observed that few movie goers are revealing the end by posting updates on Facebook and Twitter. For those: Please, don’t do that. Keep that as a surprise. Respect the director’s view and his efforts!
I will give it 4 out 5, and for Aamir, 6 out 5. If you are a Aamir Khan’s fan, then don’t miss it.
