Dhoom: 3 Film Review

As I watched Dhoom: 3, the words of the unnamed protagonist from Fight Club kept resonating in my ears, "Everything’s a copy of a copy."
The question to be asked is not whether Dhoom: 3‘s script was lifted off from a film; the question to be asked is how well it was done. Yes, Dhoom: 3 isn’t just inspired by Now You See Me, but it has taken something very central from its plot and made it, its own. Yes, it has several scenes that will remind you of The Batman series, Iron Man and also of The Fast and the Furious series. Yet, Dhoom: 3 is a job well-done and I will tell you why.

Dhoom: 3 is the story of Sahir, a circus entertainer. Sahir’s only motive in life is to avenge the death of his father, by robbing those, who he believes, were responsible for his father’s death.

What’s impressive?

Magic
Everybody loves to see good magic trick. Dhoom: 3 is full of magic tricks, both, in and out of the realms of a circus. And all these tricks have been well-woven into the plot of the film.

The Climax
The plot of the film has an unexpected climax, the kind that will leave you both surprised and curious. A pat on the back of Vijay Krishna Acharya, for having developed the plot in such a way.

Chase Scenes
The chase scenes in the film are mind-blowing and have easily surpassed all the chase scenes in the history of Indian Cinema. 

Graphics and Animation
The graphics and animation of the film are flawless and have set a high standard of visual perfection in Indian Cinema.

Dialogues
The dialogues penned down by Vijay Krishna Acharya and Prakash Bharadwaj fit each situation in the film perfectly. Wit, humor and emotions have been expressed through them in a fitting way.

Jackie Shroff
Jackie Shroff, as the father of the young Sahir, has a tiny role in the film; but his performance is laudable.

Uday Chopra
Uday Chopra is close to being the star of the film because of honest performance. Since Dhoom (2004), Ali’s sense of humor hasn’t improved much. But whenever the audience is in splits, it’s because of him.

Katrina Kaif
Katrina Kaif looks simply gorgeous throughout the film. The hard work, that she has put in to fit into the shoes of an acrobat and a dancer, shows.

Aamir Khan
If Sachin is the little master of cricket, then Aamir Khan is the little master of Bollywood. He isn’t called Mr. Perfectionist for nothing. His role as Sahir, might not be his best act so far, but through Dhoom: 3 we get to see him tap dance, do acrobatics, swing on a ring suspended in the air, perform death-defying stunts and ride a bike like a boss. One can clearly see the sincere effort that he’s taken to do all of the above with perfection. 

A Villain of a Different Sort
Dhoom: 3 blurs the lines between the hero and villain. At a certain point of time in the film, you will be left wondering who the real villain is. 

Soundtrack and Choreography
No Bollywood film is complete without a good number of songs and an amazing soundtrack. The songs are a treat to watch and pleasing to the ears. Malang, Kamli, Dhoom Tap (Instrumental) and Bande Hai Hum Uske, deserve a special mention.

What isn’t impressive?

Editing and Pacing 
The editing of the film lags behind, especially in the first-half of the movie. For a film that has been made on such a large scale, special attention should have been given to editing. Because of this, the film faces pacing issues, which sometimes make the audience lose interest.

Length
The film could have easily been cut short to two hours. Some of the scenes in the film, could’ve been chucked. Three hours is simply too long. 

Thefts
The audience is never shown how Sahir pulls off the theft. We are shown that a robbery has taken place and Sahir has fled, but we never get to see him do the robbery.  

Logic and Common Sense
There are some scenes that defy logic and common sense and are quite a turn off. You will know them when you see them.

The good in the film easily outweighs the negligible shortcomings. Now go watch the film.

      Every reviewer gets to review the film before the release. Its one of the perks that the journalists enjoy. That’s how you get to see the reviews up before the film’s release. Its simple logic, no faking business involved!

    The action sequences are so pathetic.Even Himesh pulled of the rickshaw stunt better in his flop movie.The action sequences are so pathetically done up.Even the bike used in the first stunt sequence is fake at the critical parts like the jumps (It is a cheaply modified R15 2.0 not the S1000RR for those scenes )then they switch the camera to show the real bike again.(Even the last scene of doom 1 had a fake busa but it was tastefully done to an extent where it was not easily noticeable.Some of Aamir’s stunt sequence like the one with the bike riding on a wire also first shows the bike having no tyres on the rims then they mysteriously appear.plus the bizarre transformers like features of the twin bikes linking also makes no sense.

    The first half is not at all good although it makes up with the story in the second half.

      bike having no tyres on the rims then they mysteriously appear (sic)

      Well man thats possible
      If you enjoy tranformers then turning a bike into a jetski shold not be that shocking..
      Stop the mockery
      The film aint that bad
      It sure has borrowed some ideas not entire plots
      so its quite decent..yeah

    I’d like to recommend a film entitled The Prestige by Christopher Nolan to the reviewer who clearly is not very well adept in all things cinema. Ironically, deriving one’s philosophy from Fight Club to justify blatant plagiarism rampant in Mumbai films gives away the puerile mindset of the reviewer.

    This movie is completely useless one…we have to learn how to direct a worst movie with a big stardom,high budget,and with such a wonderful banner……overall my rating will be no star!!!!!

    looks lyk (Amir) and (Abhishek & Uday combo) are North and South pole of magnets where North pole did their BEST to make DHOOM3 awesome while South Pole applied its FULL ENERGY to make it KABAAD, d worst of DHOOM series….missed the DANCE of Hrithik…emotional drama in movie were also out of the context considering DHOOM series….

    beginning auto scenes action was lyk flop South copy, cudn’t expect such crap at least in DHOOM and specially from Yash Raj banner….BIKE stunts were awsm, city streets and stunts reminded of NFS2 and GTAy city games…. anyways overall a GOOD TYMPASS but don’t expect it lyk previous one’s… an entertaining one but worst from DHOOM series… 2.5/5

    This is a good movie, but not to be named as Dhoom… When we go for Dhoom, it need that thrill.. this movie is like lots of sentiments, a family entertainer.. But for sure, Amir is at his best as usual.
    Abhishek bachan is like committing suicide.. whata boring acting, action series- the auto rikshaw one is the flop ever.. he is just fit for a slow motion walking, an linited dialog..
    Over all, its just a disappointment..!

    Good job on writing this school essay of a review. I’m sure Yashraj will give you a 10/10 and also draw a star for your kiddish report. You’ve committed a sin by naming “Fight Club” in this review. Seriously, can’t you see the absurdity behind your flawed logic?

    Pathetic movie… Have never seen Aamir act so badly… They murdered one of my favrt movies – The Prestige besides lifting scenes from Now you see me, Iron Man

  30. Supriya Batra

    December 26, 2013 at 8:11 pm

    pathetic movie…Katrina Kaif doesnt know how to act….why she is the part of this movie?…Producers should have chosen Deepika Padukone instead.
