The very first frame of Dishoom takes us to a place referred to as ‘somewhere in the middle east’. That’s a clear indication that the director does not quite want to give away the ‘location’, for any of the following reasons – He wants to keep the film detached from reality, or he wants to play it safe. As the story moves along we figure it is the earlier option. With Dishoom, Rohit Dhawan endeavours to make an over the top entertainer that’s devoid of any scope for reasoning.
No time is lost in taking the audience to the central plot. Indian cricket team has just made it to the finals of a tournament where they are to clash with the Pakistan team. 36 hours before the match the team’s star batsman, Viraj Sharma, is kidnapped. The Minister of External Affairs receives a video from a fanatic claiming he has Viraj and he has kidnapped the cricketer so that Pakistan team can win the final match. The minister does not lose time before sending her best man to the country where the kidnapping has happened. A cat and mouse game ensues.
However all is not lost. The film has multiple factors working for it. For one, Varun Dhawan is in golden form as a lovable goofy cop. Every time he is on screen the film turns immensely entertaining. Of course he gets best lines in the film, and Varun does not let down. John Abraham plays the tough cop who does not need to emote much, except being angry all the time. Jacqueline, playing a thief, is in her usual self. Saqib Saleem does well as the cricketer.
The screenplay catches grip towards the end as the final countdown to the match happens. This is where the film finally looks like a thriller.
Watch Dishoom for Varun Dhawan and for the quirky that Rohit Dhawan induces into the film. The film should be a legit proof of the actor’s screen presence and capabilities to entertain – if you still had doubts about it.
