Dishoom starring John Abraham, Varun Dhawan and Jacqueline Fernandez is opening in theatres on Friday and director Rohit Dhawan’s directorial promises to be a thrill fest with lots of laughs thrown in. And, do not forget the high glam quotient. The thriller chronicles the story of two buddy cops who are on a manhunt to find India’s top batsman who is kidnapped hours before the country’s do-or-die match with Pakistan. While its stunts and performances have already created a strong buzz among the fans, here are the reasons why you should go and spend your money to watch this movie in theatres.
The helicopter sequence:
How can an action movie be made without its stars facing any danger while filming it? And this is exactly the thought in your head while watching this famous chopper sequence. The helicopter chase sequence is touted to be the most complex scene to be shot in the movie. But what makes this it extra special is the fact that John Abraham (Kabir) and Varun Dhawan (Junaid) shot it mid-air without using any body doubles or harness for support. Producer Sajid Nadiadwala roped in expert stunt choreographers and personally looked into the safety of his stars. It was filmed in Abu Dhabi and it took around 3-4 days to complete the filming of the sequence.
The film is about two buddy cops and when you have two desi handsome boys in a movie, bromance is bound to happen. In the film’s trailer, there are a few scenes that gives us a glimpse of their chemistry. And the scene which grabbed everybody’s eyeballs was the one where John and Varun are seen posing in innerwear, showing off their chiseled bodies. Off screen also, John and Varun decided to continue their bromance during the film’s promotions. A couple of days ago, the two muscular hunks were seen eating their breakfast in towels. As John and Varun are sharing space for the first time, it will be interesting to see how this dostana between the two flourishes in the days to come.
The time limit:
The film will be fighting the clock in order to track down the kidnapped victim, top cricketer Viraj Sharma, in a time span of 36 hours. It, therefore, provides a fast-paced cinematic ride for the viewers. Talking about the rapid tempo of the film, Varun Dhawan said, “Thirty-six hours is the time before which we need to find Viraj Sharma. If you can’t then most often the victim is dead or never to be found. Also in 36 hours, India will play against Pakistan in the final so this makes the deadline even more deadly.”
Jacqueline and Parineeti:
A Bollywood movie is incomplete without a touch of glamour. And Dishoom gets full marks with Jacqueline Fernandez playing the leading lady and Parineeti Chopra lending oomph to ‘Jaaneman aah’. Watch out for the famous Spider-man kiss between Parineeti and Varun in the song. To boot, Jacqueline is apparently playing a spy in the film.
The comeback of Akshaye Khanna:
After taking a sabbatical from movies for almost four years, Akshaye Khanna is all set to strike back with Dishoom. He will be seen playing the role of the antagonist, Wagha who kidnaps the top cricketer right before an India versus Pakistan final match and threatens to kill him. His negative character in Race movie has been a memorable one and we would love to see him go bad in this film again. During the trailer launch, Varun had also said that Akshaye is the USP of the movie.
Akshay Kumar’s cameo:
We don’t know if Akshaye Khanna is the USP of Dishoom or not. But we can surely say that the Khiladi Akshay Kumar is definitely an additional eye candy in the film. He surprised each and every one of his fans when he revealed his buffed up and chiselled look with a man-bun in the film. Akshay will be teaming up again with his Desi Boyz co-star John Abraham in the film.
While the team is leaving no stone unturned in spreading the good word for Dishoom, it benefits from being the solo release at BO. But will it pass the audience’s litmus test? Let’s wait and watch.
