Dishoom Trailer Review

There has been a lot of hype around Varun and John’s action-adventure film Dishoom. The theatrical trailer of the film was released today. The film has been directed by Varun’s brother Rohit Dhawan.

Synopsis:

The film revolves around the missing Indian batsman Viraj who is kidnapped by a gangster Waagha (Akshay Khanna). The Indian intelligence agencies call agent Kabir (John) to rescue the kidnapped batsman. Junaid (Dhawan) plays Kabir’s partner. The third vital player of this game is double agent Jacqueline Fernandez. Together, they set out on a mission to rescue Viraj before an all important India-Pakistan final.

John Abraham is a stern cope and Varun is a funny one. It may remind you of Abhishek and Uday of Dhoom series (Dishoom also looks similar in name). The director’s main focus is only on CGI and John-Varun’s muscular body. There is so much rush in the trailer like action sequences, punches and blows, cars flying in Rohit Shetty style. There is also a random scene of John and Abraham standing in a flying helicopter and bikini shot of Nargis Fakhri. That made no sense at all.

The writing by Milap Zaveri (Mastizaade fame) is very poor. John Abraham looks well as a serious cop but Varun Dhawan fails to impress. We all loved him as Raghu in Badlapur. But here he tries too hard to balance humor and anger but ended up being the second lead. His clean shaven look also does not suit the character.

Akshay Khanna is making a comeback with Dishoom and he has stolen the show as a villain. He looked completely in his character. The story also looks fresh and locations were good. Music by Pritam will be something to wait for.

What’s Good:

♦ Akshay Khanna
♦ Fresh plot

 

What’s Bad:

♦ Varun Dhawan’s comic avatar
♦ Poor computer graphics
♦ Dialogues
♦ No focus on story

 

Dishoom Trailer Review: Verdict

The makers have tried to make a full masala entertainer film but they have failed. There was no need for comedy scenes which were poor written. Varun Dhawan is a bankable star and the combo of action and music will ensure solid opening. But such kind of films can go terribly wrong if the direction is not up to the mark.

Rating: 2/5

    • No but it definitely means that it is much better than Raees, FAN, Dilwale, HNY, CE, JTHJ, Ra-one and many more Srk films…

      • no it means….better than…jagruti, suraywanshyam, love, biwi hu tu aisi, dil tera aashiqui, kurban,veer, master piece Marie gold, london dreams,most recently Jail hu and upcmoing SULTANA AAPA…

  1. First of all I wanted to say abt the expectation level of Dishoom b4 d trailer. All major entertainment sites and audience believed and also said that its a movie that is going to be in the Top 10 highest grossers list of the year.The makers also said that its a buddy cop movie similar to lethal weapon and bad boys with huge stylish action nd chasing scenes,great comedy,and also with some chartbuster music.(and also the makers said that its going to be a big Franchise like Dhoom franchise) .So naturally the expectation was huge and the second poster also increased the excitement to another level.(after seeing the 2nd poster I feel that the action scene is going to challenge Hrithik’s Bang Bang)
    So the trailer released now and here is the good and bad things about the trailer

    The trailer begins with top Indian batsman Viraj scoring tons of runs against opponents, but a gangster called Waagha (Khanna) kidnaps him. The Indian intelligence agencies call agent Kabir (John) to rescue the kidnapped batsman. Junaid (Dhawan) plays Kabir’s partner. The third vital player of this game is double agent Jacqueline Fernandez. Together, they set out on a mission to rescue Viraj before an all important India-Pakistan final.

    Positives
    #Jhon and Varun’ s Bromance is fantastic.(Very very good)
    #The lead actors(Varun,John,Akshay,Jaquelin,) very much suits to the characters they r doing nd John nd Akshay khanna’s roles is really interesting and their look and character is similar to Dwayne The Rock Johnson and Jason Stathom( both from Furious 7) and its huge plus point for the movie.(more over in this trailer John have a similar scene to The Rock had in Fast and Furious 6(John throwing a guy to the Glass(?) is similar to Rock throwing a guy to the glass ))
    #Varun and Jaquelin chemistry also good
    #Promising music album and good BGM( Already the one song in the trailer is looks like chartbuster)
    #Wonderful locations
    # The story is perfectly suits to the target mass movie lovers

    Negatives
    #The highlight of the movie its Action and Adventure scenes but bcz of its bad VFx works it becomes average(At least in this trailer the hugely awaited bike chase fight scene (the one in second poster)is similar to the badly received intro fight scene of Dhoom3 bcz of bad and similar graphics works)
    #Hugely disappointing VFX works
    #Comedy and Dialogues are average
    #In some scenes Varun dhawan over acts too much.

    All in all the trailer is a disappointment but its a avg/ abv avg one.Hope the movie will be good. Opening day collection is looking huge…..

  2. GuD Review Bollywood arena
    there is NO story
    action is lit bit gUd
    Varun Look like same acting in Main tera hero
    average trailer
    2.5/5 my review

  3. Bolly arena,
    Happy to see that my personal opinion and yours is same in some points.like ,
    1.In previous article it self I said about Varun dhawan’ s over acting and his not so impressive look
    2. Mostly John Abraham didn’t gets the credit he deserved in every time but in previous article I said that his character and look and acting is impressive in at least in the trailer and he looks like The Rock.Really happy to see you also liked his perfomance in the trailer.
    3.And some universally agreeing things like Akshay khanna’s good performance and bad VFX.

  4. Dishoom Movie ka Trailor tou intehayi bakwas hae Viraj acha player hae usne koi atom bomb tou nahi banaya jo usse kidnap kr liya gya Badlapur movie ke baad Varun dhawan se expectation zaida thi is film mein usne mayus kia

  5. Salman Fan o ghatia insan tum kehte ho dishoom ka trailor fan,Raees,Ra.One Dilwale se behtar hae o gadhey ke bache Shah Rukh Khan ne jo acting Fan mein ki hae wo tera baap salman khan nahi kr sakta Jo acting Shah Rukh Khan ne Swades mein ki wo acting bhi Tera baap Salman Khan nahi kr sakta Tujhe Acting ka pata hae nahi tu Batein krta hae tum log sirf Films ka business dekhte ho Ek actor ki acting ko note nahi krtey

  6. People are saying and writing a lot good or bad for Dhishoom trailer and even its review bt bollyarena is also negative. Rest, keeping everytging aside i am very very happy to see Akshay Khanna a wonderful actor in action once again. With couple of his scenes in the trailer itself giving idea as how he still has a unique midas touch. I am sure he will be the real not only scene rather the full show stealer as villain in DHISHOOM.

  7. This man salman fan is gone mad.where did he watch raees?May be on Jupiter.he is telling it is better than CE and HNY.forget these 2 it will not break flop Fan collection.

  8. Copy Hollywood or South movie stories&styles insert Pakistan,Muslim,bikini,item songs etc…… Bollywood Masala

    Don’t think Bollywood will survive another 4 yrs if they continue like this BS ….. this is not Khangess era, MODI :P
