Is John Abraham’s ‘Dishoom’ a lame rehash of YRF’s ‘Dhoom’ franchise?
Buddy-cop-comedy-action films are one of the safest genres, as far as the masala entertainer films are concerned. In this genre one has to be really short on talent to go wrong. Bollywood’s legitimate tryst with this genre began with YRF’s ‘Dhoom’ series, and boy it was lapped up and how. The first in the series starring Abhishek Bachchan, Uday Chopra and John Abraham became an overnight sensation, and it brought the bikers back on the Road. In ‘Dhoom 2’, Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan took the franchise many notches higher, and in ‘Dhoom 3,’ Aamir Khan in a double role nailed it and how!
Yesterday the trailer of the John Abraham-Varun Dhawan-Jacqueline Fernandez-starrer ‘Dishoom‘ was released, and it was such a disappointment, especially after having enjoyed the ‘Dhoom’ series where the makers have upped the ante so high, it’s almost impossible to match. The makers didn’t even to bother get creative with the name of their new franchise – they just added the letters ‘i’ and ‘s’ into ‘Dhoom’ and voila, we have a brand new franchise. Well, the comparisons are inevitable, and the makers should have been prepared for this backlash. It seems they are just banking on John and Varun’s abs which we can see a lot in the trailer of ‘Dishoom’. Oh and throw in Nargis Fakhri in a bikini, you already have most of the audience eating out of your hands.
While it is a little too early to say if ‘Dishoom’ will be another dud in John Abraham‘s kitty, but yes, the trailer did leave us asking for more. What do you guys think about the trailer of ‘Dishoom’? Please do share your thoughts in the comments section.
