Critics Reviews Audience Reviews


Every paradise has a few snakes and so has Goa, the paradise in India. There is something special about Abhishek Bachchan playing the role of a cop. Be it Dhoom series or Dum Maaro Dum, the attitude that Abhishek carries as a cop comes out clearly in all of his films. ACP Vishnu Kamath (Abhishek), who has a tragic past, gets another chance to reform it. He is called for a horrendous task of clearing all the mafia drug-dealings that exist in the very DNA of the city.

Fighting against the giant drug mafia (Aditya Pancholi), with a corrupt police department and trying to save the innocents (Bipasha Basu, Prateik Babbar and Rana Daggubati) involved in the process, Kamath puts in best of his skills to make a drug-free-Goa. Of course, this goal of cleaning Goa would not have been possible without the local DJ Joki (Rana) and his girlfriend Zoey’s (Bipasha) help.

Plus Points

Director Rohan Sippy, with Dum Maaro Dum, has managed to impart a brilliant story in a perfect style. With all the characters in the film he has managed to set the perfect mood and successfully created a chor-police drama. All the credit goes to the brilliant dialogue writing (by Shridhar Raghavan and Charudutt Acharya) that manages to keep the audiences glued to the screens. The power packed performance delivered by each character in the film is the USP of Dum Maaro Dum. Camera work and editing is superb, with sharp and edgy cuts, showing Goa through a different kaleidoscope.

Music by Pritam goes along the script, setting a perfect tone for Dum Maaro
