Dishoom tells the story of the kidnap of an Indian cricketer named as Viraj (Saqib Saleem) by a bookie called Wagah (Akshaye Khanna), 36 hours before an India-Pakistan final match. Wagah threatens to kill Viraj, if the match is cancelled; therefore India's External Affairs Minister designates a special task force officer to rescue Viraj.

In this freaking complicated situation, enters Kabir Shergill (John Abraham) who leaves no stones unturned to find Viraj. In his manhunt, he is accompanied by Junaid Ansari (Varun Dhawan) who is a Middle-Eastern cop. The duo turns buddy cops and are on a quest to find Viraj. Jacqueline Fernandez plays the love interest of Junaid, but her character has much more to offer in this film; watch the film to find out! Now, whether Junaid and Kabir would bring Viraj before the match begins and how, forms the crux of the story!

Varun Dhawan is one talented actor and there is no doubt in that! From mind-blowing stunts to whistle-worthy dance performances, from naughty dialogues to balanced acting, Varun gets ten out of ten! On the other side, John sizzles in his serious avatar and rather did a good job as a tough cop! However, we gotta give credit to Rohit for smoothly establishing the comic chemistry between Varun and John and didn't let one overshadow the other! With her sizzling appearance and a body to die for, Jacqueline did full justice to her role and totally nailed it during 'Sau Tarah Ke' song sequence!


If you are looking for entertainment, you can easily put this movie on your watch list. And if you are a die-hard fan of Varun, then what are you doing here? Go and book your tickets for Dishoom!
