CRB Tech Reviews, this time comes up with the latest movie review:Dishoom
Dishoom organize the buddy cop film, with John Abraham and Varun Dhawan being assigned to the “Case Of A Kidnapped Indian Cricketer”.
Dishoom is a fast paced fashionable movie. It’s got flash but the plot keeps stumbling and stops the movie from really zooming. And after the interval, it nose dives, meandering off in some Fairy Tale style fantasy space.
It starts with a promise. Match-winning stalwart Viraj Sharma (Saleem) disappears just a couple of days before an important match with Pakistan. Indian Special Task Force cop Kabir Shergill (John Abraham) is sent to a Middle Eastern country, which is supposedly the site of the crime. Local boy Junaid Ansari (Varun Dhawan) partners with the visitor, and off they go, searching and solving the mystery.
The stern faced experienced cop and the bumbling hunk is an old Hollywood cliché but can turn into fun in the hands of good actors and directors: here, Dhawan and Abraham display limited wares, the former in his young wide-eyed joe avatar, and Varun swathed in tight tees and a permanent frown, swaggering on sandy desert outposts and shadowy villains’ dens.
The boys have female company in the form of the two muse, Jacqueline Fernandez and Nargis Fakhri, the former with a few scenes where she can be seen delivering dialogues and an item number where she dances in the midst of ogling men, and the latter who’s there in the movie for purely decorative purposes.
Dishoom’s villains are a real letdown, not even properly evil in a matching comic-book way. Neither Akshaye Khanna nor Rahul Dev have any menace: for fellows who keep threatening to off their victims, they are curiously minus impact.
The odd patriotic element is scattered here and there into various intervals as both the cops and the kidnapped pledge their allegiance to India, which only further complicates a confused movie.
The film’s real lifeline is Varun Dhawan, the 7-film-old actor striking the perfect balance between craziness and innocence as the trainee cop determined to please, and confirms that there’s more to his screen presence than his impressive pecs.
There’s little hope that Dishoom can have a lasting impact.
