Handsome guys, gorgeous ladies, beautiful locations, excellent cinematography, good action sequences and excellent performances from the lead actors make Dhoom: 2 a good entertainer.
The movie has all the ingredients for an entertainer. You might question the logic behind some of the sequences, but movies are there to entertain you and you would just enjoy the two and a half hours – it is just fun.
The story revolves around the following characters:
Aryan – Mr. A (Hrithik Roshan) and Sunehri (Aishwarya Rai) – Mr.A is a hi-tech international thief. He doesn’t leave any clues during his act and his target is not just any thing. He robes the most expensive and most important treasures from different locations. After pulling off a series of impossible heists all over the world, his next target is Mumbai, India.
Once in Mumbai, Mr. A finds his match in Sunehri (Aishwarya Rai), a petty yet clever thief. She makes him an offer he finds very hard to refuse. A partnership! Aryan accepts.
ASCP Jai (Abhishek Bachchan), Ali (Uday Chopra) and Shonali Bose (Bipasha Basu) – Mr.A’s case is given to ASCP Jai and Ali. Helping them put the pieces of the puzzle together is ACP Shonali Bose (Bipasha Basu), Jai’s college mate, now a police officer in her own right. For the last two years Shonali has been tracking these amazing thefts and is now an expert on this thief, who no one has seen.
The whole movie is a game of cat and mouse – a game of good v/s bad. The movie is a great adventure and sure to entertain everyone.
To sum up:
Story: Just a cat and mouse game – The robbers challenge the cops and the Cops running behind the robbers.
Music: Two of the songs are good and well choreographed. The title song on Hrithik and „Chori Chori“ shot on Aishwarya are real treats to watch. There is no question about Hrithik’s dancing abilities, but the surprise element is Aishwarya’s dancing. For the first time she looks enjoying the dance sequences.
Acting: Hrithik Roshan is amazing. He looks dazzling – the best you have seen him on screen so far. He takes you to a different world with excellent dances, good fight sequences and simple but adequate acting.
Aishwarya looks gorgeous in those dresses. You may not close your eyes watching the „Chori Chori“ song. She is just superb in it. There isn’t anything for her to act in the movie.
Abhishek, Bipasha and Uday did their part well. But the movie belongs to Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai.
Direction, Choreography, Action, Costumes, Special effects: Director Sanjay Gadhvi and the crew should be credited for well packaging the movie. The movie has breath taking Hi-speed chases and action sequences. Special credits should be given to the costumes and the makeup team. Each and every actor looked gorgeous in the movie.
Overall, the movie is a good entertainer well suited for the holidays. But of course it’s not for the ones who want to see only the real life on screen.
While leaving the hall I heard someone saying „Who cares what is there in the story… I just enjoyed watching Hrithik and Aishwarya…“ and I think she is right, you may not have seen them like this so far and may never see them again like this. So don’t miss it….
