Lots of stunts, songs, muscles and boredom. This is not the best of the series, but definitely has a charm of its own. The fundamental plot itself is predictable for Indian audiences to watch – good guy catches the bad guy. But as the movie progresses, the distinction between good and bad fades away. This is a story of revenge with a dash of father and brother sentiment. Surely, Aamir dominated the entire movie. His physique, though not needed for his role as a circus man, did make him more noticeable than the others stars.

 

The movie opens with the ever-striving Jackie Shroff – owner of the Great Indian Circus – who shuts himself down as the Bank shuts down his little trick camp. Aamir doesn’t like this and swears to bring down this cold blooded Bank. Yeah, everyone hates bankers – especially the debtors. He builds his skills and muscles to come back one day and start robbing every branch of this Bank and close out its operations. Along comes Jai Dixit, the veteran from India who knows how bad guys think and act. Uday Chopra seems to have Bollywood presence only as a sidekick and appears to be content with it. He is doomed to be only in Dhoom series. The slickness and the breathtaking bike stunts leave you wondering if you were watching a Hollywood movie, but it’s the dance and music that give  away. Abhishek is a class in himself – third class. He needs to work enormously on his facial expressions.

 

The sizzler element in the movie is Katrina, who seemed to have worked hard ( I mean really hard) on aerobics and dance. She ensures that your jaws drop at every sequence, especially in the 5 crore song (malang). This song deserves applause for the colors, music and choreography. Also, it pretty well hides the height difference between the Adam and Eve. I am deviating, let me come back to the story. So Aamir, with all his confidence befriends Abhishek and uses him to rob the third branch of this doomed bank. Best, he has an alibi and unbeatable style to come out of it unscathed. He loses the friend in Abhishek but sticks to his mission. Few more aha moments, stunts and kisses the final scene is a shocker for the audience. This is not a typical Hindi movie end but perhaps it’s time Indian audience got used to such endings. I wondered for hours as to who won after all. I pity Katrina for signing up for a movie with absolutely no role to play.

 

It is an Amir Khan show all the way to the end. When you see such a chap with some really toned muscles, you feel motivated to put this down to a New Year resolution. I would give this movie a 3 star while yelling that D2 was way better with Hrithik around. Leave your brains and hopes at the entrance as this movie will be a no brainer with dumb cops and absence of reality and physics in fights. Do not watch the English Movie ‘prestige’ before this one – as you might feel you knew the tricks beforehand.

Final verdit: strictly once! – no prejudice
