Director Sanjay Gadhvi has experimented with a totally new theme in Dhoom-packed with action, entertainment and fun. This Yashraj film production is an ideal movie for all those who could not watch Hollywood flicks like The Italian Job, Fast And The Furious, Oceans Eleven and Matrix Reloaded. The director gives the desi viewers the best of the mix and in turn comes up with what can be claimed to be India's first bike flick. The film's focal point is action and though it lags behind when compared to Hollywood flicks, one must admit that Sanjay Gadhvi has tried his best to present it to the Bollywood public with the right dosage of "masala" that they crave for. John Abraham is truly brilliant, playing an out and out villain. Abhishek has done a good job as well though the characterisation of his role was not strong enough. Uday Chopra adds the much-needed humour in the film and is worth an applause. The music by Preetam and lyrics by Samir is average with the title song being sung constantly. Camerawork and editing is polished and enhances the pace of the movie. Overall, a must watch.
