Dishoom Movie Review: Dishoom is an action-adventure Bollywood film directed by Rohit Dhawan. It stars Varun Dhawan, John Abraham and Jacquline Fernandez in the lead roles.The film has been produced by Nadiadwala Grandsons Entertainment. Take a look at Dishoom review.

Dishoom Movie Review: Expectations

The film has been shot and promoted on a big scale by the makers. There is also a good buzz around the film despite the average promos. We are just expecting a nice entertainer.

Dishoom Review: Synopsis & Analysis

Dishoom tells the story of two Indian cops Kabir Shergill (John Abraham) and Junaid Ansari (Varun Dhawan). When India’s top batsman Viraj (Saqib Saleem) gets kidnapped in the Middle East by Rahul (Akshay Khanna), both these cops set for a 36-hours man hunt before the final match between India and Pakistan.

Rohit Dhawan has tried to mix a spy thriller with humour but it does not work somehow. The first half has few fun moments and most of the jokes fall flat. It is the second half where action and adventure begins. But there is nothing new in the film despite the genre has not been tried much in Bollywood. The script has its share of flaws. The runtime is around 2 hours but still the movie seems a bit long. Dialogues are average and fail to provide a good dose of humour.

The makers have invested a lot in Dishoom but still it looks like a B-grade Bollywood film. It has also been inspired by a lot of films like Bad Boys, 21 Jump Street etc. Varun and John’s characters remind you of Abhishek Bachchan and Uday Chopra from Dhoom series.

Dishoom Review: Direction, Editing, Music

Rohit Dhawan’s direction is pretty much average. He does make Varun Dhawan’s Dishoom more funny than a thriller. The chase sequences are well executed but don’t know why it was so much overhyped as it fails to keep you on the edge of the seat. Abhijit Vaghani’s background score is alright. There is nothing special in the music department except Sau Tarah Ke which was a treat to watch on big screen. The locations in Dubai are good Cinematography by Ayananka Bose is not up to the mark. Visual effects seem choppy in most of the sequences.

Dishoom Movie Review: Star Performances

♦ Varun Dhawan tried too hard to be funny but overacts most of the time. Even his expressions in normal sequences can seem a bit blank.

♦ John Abraham as a tough cop impresses. He carries off the action scenes pretty well but he needs to work on his dialogue delivery.

♦ Jacqueline Fernandez lives up to the expectations once again and proved that she has nothing to do with acting at all. However, she has a limited screen presence and sizzles in Sau Tarah Ke song.

♦ After a long time, Akshaye Khanna returns to the silver screen and it is a welcome change. He as the lead antagonist Rahul (Wagah) is wonderful in the role.

♦ There are cameos from Akshay Kumar, Nargis Fakhri and Parineeti Chopra. But it was Akshay who stole the limelight even in a short role as he has excellent screen presence.

Dishoom Review: Verdict

Despite some fun elements and good action sequences, Dishoom is too much messy. Akshay Khanna and Akshay Kumar are the only major attraction in this otherwise mediocre film.

Rating: 2/5

  1. Another disappointment of a big budget film. I was going to watch it for KHILADI. Now it’s the only reason left.
    .
    Seems like Varun’s first flop is from his own brother. ( I wish it would be HIT)

  2. Nothing Surprising… I was expecting avg response for this film… Bad trailer, Massively disappointing songs… Will be Avg /Semi hit at the boxoffice

  3. After 22nd day till the end of it’s run Dhoom 3 collects 8cr with the mixed WOM, and after 22nd day SULTAN total collection is 292.84cr and it also need only 8cr to cross 300cr, which it can collect easily because the WOM is positive….
    Also now after the review of Dishoom it is clear that it will not work with multiplex audience, which is the main audience for SULTAN. ….
    So 300cr is possible for SULTAN, what do you think Bollyarena….plz reply

  4. Dishoom was one of my Most Anticipated Film of the Year but not now.
    Trade people considered Dishoom as a sure shot 100cr grosser at the Boxoffice. But after that currently no one is confident abt the film.( at least i am expecting a one time watchable movie)..

    Now iam already reduced the expectation level of Varun Upcoming biggie Judwaa 2.

  5. don’t decide to watch the movie or not because bollyarena review because bollyarena give H3 1.5/5 stars but was big hit and loved by all people.
    So if you wait dishoom go and watch it.

  6. VARUN??? He is always over acted.. Just one expression n very arrogant to look in HIS presence.. Fair review for the movie though.. Thanks a lot BOLLYARENA.. 60/70 cr is maximum..

  7. The film relese today and have mixed to positive reviews from the websited and the movie will be hit or super hit.
