Directed by: Rohit Dhawan
Genre: Action Comedy
Duration: 2 hrs 4 mins

Rohit Dhawan’s second directorial film Dishoom is being touted as an action-adventure film. Featuring John Abraham, Varun Dhawan and Jacqueline Fernandez in the lead, the film narrates the story of two cops who are on a mission to rescue Indian cricket team’s star player who has been kidnapped.

The film rides essentially on the shoulders of the two men, viz., John Abraham and Varun Dhawan. John Abraham handles his character of being a no-nonsense tough guy with perfection. He is surely one of the best action heroes in the business. While Varun Dhawan exhibited his serious side in BADLAPUR, DISHOOM sees Varun Dhawan in a rather cute and comical avatar. The ease with which Varun Dhawan executes the comic scenes is extremely adorable and praiseworthy. Jacqueline Fernandez brings in the glamour quotient to the film and acts her part very well. Amidst everyone, DISHOOM also sees the big return of the seasoned actor Akshaye Khanna, who announces his comeback in Bollywood with a bang with this film. His sense of timing and dialogue delivery adds more glitter to the character that he plays in the film. Akshay Kumar’s outrageous cameo in the film is the biggest highlight – revealing much will spoil the fun, so watch it yourself.

Varun Dhawan & John Abraham’s bromance makes it a fun watch.
