#Dhoom3 is a carefully calibrated mix of high-octane action. It's an exhilarating ride with a cheerful lack of logic. Still worth watching!
#Dhoom3 Absolutely loved @aamir_khan 's work!! He proves to be the best, yet again! Bande hai hum uske, hum pe kiska zor ...
#Dhoom3 is TheDarkKnight of Indian Cinema. TDK showed hollywood how to do a superhero movie.. D3 showed bollywood how to do action thriller.
I credit Aamir Khan's outside the box thinking for limiting trailers & not revealing anything abt #Dhoom3 &protecting few Shk&Awe moments.
Watched #Dhoom3 with least expectations after reading review.Turns out to be a good movie,entertaining,with good visuals...
The Most difficult bike stunts for Aamir Khan were the ones where the Bike stopped and his both feet had to touch the Ground #Dhoom3
@aamir_khan A big hats off to u for an unmatchable performance in #Dhoom3. U might not go for the numbers but the numbers surely follow u!
There are just three reasons to watch #Dhoom3. Aamir Khan, Aamir Khan and Aamir Khan pretending to be the other Aamir Khan.
#Dhoom3 - Production values are top notch & visually fantastic to watch and yes, the film has shades of Ajith starrer #Villain.
Dhoom 3, could never imagine Aamir can take it to this height. Loved every scene. There is a reason for calling him Mr. Perfectionist. Kudos!
