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 here!
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 Middle-Eastern cop.
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 whistle!
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 ignore!
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!
