Dum Maaro Dum Movie Review : Watch it for Abhishek

Dum Maaro Dum is a brilliant thriller in recent times. This is a stark yet breezy look on the glamour of rave parties, sizzling yet doped women wearing bare minimum and lots of gawky, stoned people caught in a maddening, intoxicated tour. Though the writing is a let-down, the director manages to do whatever he can in the realm of a loose script.

Story of Dum Maaro Dum:
Writer Sridhar Raghavan tells us the story of four people whose lives meet at an intersection a la Yuva of Mani Rathnam. Abhishek Bachchan plays a cop ACP Vishnu Kamath, who is in a depression mode and has been called to do a cleanup act of Goa. Prateik’s character is called Lorry, an agent who works for a drug mafia, not by choice but due to circumstances. Bipasha Basu as Zoe, plays an air-hostess makes the same mistake as Lorry and becomes captive to the drug market . South sensation Rana Daggubati is her boyfriend Joki, a DJ who is not able to save her but does make amends by trying his best to save Lorry.

What works for Dum Maaro Dum:

The brilliant performance of Abhishek Bachchan and edgy direction by Rohan Sippy deserve accolades. Only he could come with a movie that could come with understated thrills and elicit a powerhouse performance from Junior B. Dum Maaro Dum has some very good scenes, especially the shootout at the market in the night. There are some real cool dialogues and as an icing on the cake, we have Deepika shaking her booty at the end.

What does not work for Dum Maaro Dum:
The movie lacks authenticity; though Abhishek’s character seems quite real, every other characterization is half-baked or fake. Also when the movie is transitioning very well, a song comes and disturbs the flow of the film. These make the movie choppy and do not allow us to sink in to the emotional appeal of the film. The villain Aditya Panscholi who plays Lorsa Biscuta could have had a meaner menace, Bipasha’s character seems fake; even in the prison, her hair look salon-fresh and Rana Dagubatty may be an eye-candy but when he opens your mouth, you wish he could just vanish.

Performances:

Though others are just passable or mediocre, only Abhishek Bachchan manages to raise the bar with his visceral performance. His character is a mix of his papa Amitabh Bachchan in Zanjeer and Mel Gibson’s role of a suicidal cop in Lethal Weapon 1.

Conclusion: Do not look for a good script, enjoy the thrills and the sizzle

Rating:***(Good)
