    Verdict - A constantly busy, fast-paced actioner with little else to offer.

    DishoomWatch trailerRelease date : July 29, 2016



    If you're just looking to waste away a couple of hours watching stuff randomly blowing up, then watching Dishoom just might fulfil that need of yours. This is a fairly fast-paced action-comedy-thriller, with something constantly happening. So while it never actually lags, it also has little else to offer. John Abraham and Varun Dhawan play Kabir and Junaid, an Indian and a Pakistani official respectively; whose task is to crack the case of Indian cricket team's top batsman Viraj's (ahem) kidnapping, just a day before an India vs Pakistan final match. Director Rohit Dhawan makes sure he keeps blowing up random things at regular intervals, keeps staging uninspired chase sequences every now and then to create an illusion of urgency; but Dishoom is a frustratingly pointless film. Dhawan the director seems to be inspired by Rohit Shetty's tendency to make cars fly, but he keeps the jokes sparse. Which is a relief because when they do come, they're quite lame. Dhawan the actor and Abraham do what they've done countless times before - respectively playing a likable buffoon and a buffed up ox who just can't emote no matter what. It's only Akshaye Khanna who looks like he's having some fun with the material, delivering cheesy bad guy lines with relish. The film is lazily, thoughtlessly conceived, but somehow it manages to not torture the viewer. But is that how little we should expect from our films?
