Gone are those days, where 'romance' was considered as the 'main' ingredient to make any film, a hit! From the past few years, Indian cinema is adapting a new kind of romance, that the audience witness between the two lead actors, also known as 'bromance.'
Rohit Dhawan, who is also the elder brother of Varun Dhawan
debuted in Bollywood with a film, Desi Boyz, and now, is back with
Dishoom that stars Varun Dhawan, John Abraham, Jacqueline Fernandez
in the lead roles.
The oven-fresh pairing of Varun with John is the highlight of
the film. So, let's see whether this hot pairing of John &
Varun saves the film. Is their much hyped chemistry actually worth
watching? From story to performances, get all your answers
Director: Rohit Dhawan
Star Cast: Varun Dhawan, John Abraham, Jacqueline
Fernandez, Akshay Khanna, Saqib Saleem,
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
The duo turns buddy cops and are on a quest to find Viraj.
Jacqueline Fernandez plays the character of a thief, but her
character doesn't have much to offer!
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 but in this action-drama
flick, the actor didn't try anything new. He has done mind-blowing
stunts and whistle-worthy dance performances but in some places his
character has been exaggerated.
On the other side, John sizzles in his serious avatar and rather
did an amazing 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
totally nailed it in the 'Sau Tarah Ke' song sequence! However, in
many scenes of the film, her fake accent reminded us of Katrina
Kaif. Rohit should have worked on her accent.
Akshaye Khanna, who made a comeback after four years, has proved
that no matter whether he signs too many films or not, his
marvellous acting skills never take a backseat!
Akshay Kumar's special appearance while sporting a man bun and
Parineeti Chopra's special song is one of the best parts of the
film! Audiences welcomed both the special appearances with a long
Rohit Dhawan has directed the movie according to the taste of
the majority of Bollywood lovers! In spite of a poor script and a
series of plot holes, he tried his level best to make this film an
entertaining one but couldn't save it from being a drag!
There are a few indigestible scenes but having said that it's
meant to be entertaining, you can give these scenes a royal
The stunts of the film is breathtaking and we gotta appreciate
the guts of Varun & John for doing that 'helicopter' scene.
There are also never-seen-before bike stunts in the movie which
will surely impress the stunt lovers!
Songs including the title track, 'Jaanemann Aah', 'Sau Tarah Ke'
are some much-needed freshness in this manhunt drama!
If you are die-hard fan of Varun & John, then you can put
this movie on your watch list!
