Dum Maaro Dum – Movie Review

‘Goa Jannat Hai’ is pretty much what this movie wraps up with. ‘Dum Maro Dum’ unveils a different side of the paradise, taking it to the dirty depths of drugs. It almost manages to appear as the slick flick it aspires to be, but falls short in the middle.
 
A riveting beginning, aided with brilliant camerawork, introduces the characters giving a brief background of each with flashbacks and montages. It’s the usual stories of love, tragedy and cons but portrayed in a refreshing fashion for commercial cinema. Four main characters get involved with the drug mafia out of no conscious choice of their own. This vantage point is the launch pad for the chase which forms the rest of the movie. The search for the faceless man behind it all, Micheal Barbossa.
 
Prateik Babbar plays a teenager whose innocence is taken advantage of. The idea of carrying drugs to the States is sold to him by giving him his ticket to education abroad. Similarly Zoe’s (Bipasha Basu) dreams to ‘fly’ entangle her in a different high which does not sit well with her musician fiancé , Joki (Rana Daggubati). The man leading the team is Abhishek Bachchan as Inspector Kamath. Think, the cop from Dhoom but more hands on and less cocky. So that’s a good improvement.  The newer actors,  Prateik , Rana and a few other supporting cast, lend more character as opposed to the over done styles of Abhishek and Bipasha. 
The concept fails to seize with consistency due to lapses in screenplay. There are some unnecessary scenes and details that spoil the rush. The songs could’ve been omitted completely, save a couple. That would have made the overall effect sleeker, maintaining an edge. The dialogues are witty , with a few puns here and there, and on trend with the lingo making it quite relatable. The language and scenes do get a bit crude but it all fits in very well.
 
Following leads and trusting his sources, Kamath and his two assistants manage to ruffle the feathers of main man and keeper of all secrets related to Barbossa,  Biscuita (Aditya Panscholi) by getting some ‘dope’ on him. This leads to a sort of double climax, one quite predictable and the other not quite. The last scenes resonate the importance of the conscience, illustrating the consequences of the path chosen in life. Sometimes death can set you free while a life full of dark secrets can be the greatest hell on earth. The answer you owe is to yourself.
 
All in all ‘Dum Maro Dum’ is a good idea, commendable effort and a decent watch. It would’ve had more ‘dum’ if it were shorter and quicker.

    A ___ movie. The adjective is actually missing from the movie. I was expecting Deepika in the movie, with her on the posters everywhere. She is there for one item song. The movie lacks punch, lacks impact, timepass.. take a lot of popcorn.
