Movie Info

High-speed criminals terrorize a city, and it's up to one man and his sidekick to bring them down in this action thriller from India. A crime wave hits the city of Mumbai when a gang of daring thieves on souped-up motorcycles, led by the corrupt but methodical Kabir (John Abraham), stage a series of daring and lucrative robberies, then go into hiding posing as pizza delivery drivers. The police have been unable to track down the bandits thus far, so top detective Jai Dixit (Abhishek Bachchan) is given the assignment of bringing them to justice. Jai enlists the help of mechanic and expert motorcycle rider Ali (Uday Chopra), and while Ali's neo-slacker attitude doesn't mesh well at first with Jai's no-nonsense efficiency, they learn to work as a team. But as they begin to tighten the net around Kabir's gang, the clever thief realizes the police are closing in. Dhoom star Abhishek Bachchan also starred in another major Bollywood production, Phir Milenge, both of which received their American debut on the same weekend.more

Technical sheen is certainly one of the better aspects of the film, but it can only go so far when others aren't quite up to par.

Audience Reviews for Dhoom

Interesting movie! Jai is on the search for a group responsible for several bank robberies, and discovers that it is thieves on motorbikes. Along with Ali (a mechanic), he searches for Kabir and his cohorts.
Great performance by John Abraham.
Great cast- Abhishek Bachchan, John Abraham, Uday Chopra, Esha Deol, and Rimi Sen. Worthy!

It kinda takes a bit for the characters to develop. Then it kinda turns in the a wanna be James Bond movie at the end with the stunts. I'm going to call Shenanigans on the M9's effective range though. It doesn't really have as many songs as I'm used to, but they were pretty good. I'll be honest and say I watched this because I wanna watch the second one. But I'm glad that I did.


Very entertaining and far more intelligent than its brainless sequel, although it lacks some strong star power.
