Dishoom Review by Critics
Varun Dhawan, John Abraham and Jacqueline Fernandez starrer buddy cop film “Dishoom” has opened to mixed reviews from critics. Critics from the Gulf region reviewed the film, which was released on Thursday at the UAE-GCC box office. “Dishoom” is a masala entertainer starring John, Varun and Jacqueline in the lead roles, while actor Akshaye Khanna will be seen playing the negative character. The film also features Akshay Kumar, Parineeti Chopra, Nargis Fakhri and Saqib Saleem in cameos. Directed by Rahul Dhawa, “Dishoom” is the latest film produced by Sajid Nadiadwala.
The storyline is about an Indian batsman who goes missing in the Middle East. Varun and John plays the role of cops, who goes on a 36-hour manhunt, while Jacqueline plays the role of John’s stalker. While the storyline sounds interesting, but it has failed to impress the critics. Calling it a predictable film, Manjusha Radhakrishnan said that the film is full of clichés, while another critic Bindu Rai said that the film is worth watching only for Akshaye’s negative role.
Read below what critics have said about Varun-John starrer “Dishoom.”
Manjusha Radhakrishnan of Gulf News said: “While the first half is engaging, the second half is ridden with cliches and corny twists. A sight for the sore eyes was the bromance. As far as buddy-cops go, they are cute together. They have an impish charm about them, but it’s painfully predictable.”
Bindu Rai of Emirates 24/7 said: “What works for ‘Dishoom’ is the chemistry that Abraham and Dhawan share, despite the cheesy and humourless lines. The fact that the twosome are easy on the eye probably earns them a few more points that they may have lost with their acting prowess or lack thereof.
“All said and done though, ‘Dishoom’ may not pack a steady punch like ‘Sultan’ or ‘Kabali’, but it doesn’t bore at least.”
Umair Sandhu said:#Dishoom on Social Media..!! Full on Paisa Vasool Film! Thoroughly Enjoyable! #VarunDhawan makes no absolutely no mistakes in getting his act together. There is no denying the fact that he plays the Perfect Bollywood Hero in the film, who can dance effortlessly, fight in style & charm the audience. #JohnAbraham also Steals the Show all the Way. He looks Smashing Hot throughout the film & also gave TOP Notch Performance. #JacquelineFernandez, she plays her funny quirky character very well. She looks Stunning in the film. #AkshayeKhanna has a strong role as the Main Villain of the film.
He is Back with Bang. He Rocked it ! Director #RohitDhawan ( who earlier directed #DesiBoyz ) has made a Sleek Action Packed Adventure with Dishoom. First Rate Production Designing, Good Screenplay & Dialogues, Chartbuster Songs, Eye Catching Cinematography specially Abu Dhabi, Choreography is simple Bombastic, Clap Worthy Action Stunts Sequences..!! Overall Dishoom is a Winner all the Way. It will be liked by both Masses & Classes! Strong Recommended to all of u. Rating : 3.5*/5* ☆☆☆1/2
