With just #2DaysToDishoom, this week’s big release stars John Abraham, Varun Dhawan and Jaqueline Fernandez. The movie promises to be a fun, action packed ride. From the trailer, the story appears to about the hunt for a top Indian cricketer (called Viraj, so that’s just enough to make the claim too fictitious) who has been kidnapped just before an India Pak final. So is this is a good option for this weekend?  You decide (scroll down for the trailer):

The chases

The film’s USP is six fast, furious, slickly shot chase sequences. So should we expect a lot of somersaulting cars that then burst into flames? Probably. Apparently there is a sidecar, ATV bikes, cars, choppers and even speed boats, so if that’s the sort of thing you enjoy, go right ahead and watch Dishoom this weekend.


The cool guys

We will see the tough/serious John and the tough/funny Varun complete with rippling six pack abs, smart shades and glad rags… lots of eye candy for the girls.


The new Main Khiladi Tu Anadi?

The tough guy and his funny buddy… now where did we see that before? Only in every movie that starred the lovable duo of Akshay Kumar and Saif Ali Khan. Come on! those guys were fun!


The surprise packages

We see Akshaye Khanna make a return for this movie. If you’ve missed him, here he is! As the bad guy!

There is also Akshay Kumar in a man bun… too much to take? You get to decide this weekend.


Nargis Fakhri is yet another surprise package!

The music


The newly streamlined Parineeti Chopra makes a special appearance for this song… good fun! The entire music album seems punchy and exactly what you would expect from a full masala action film such as Dishoom. Raftaar and Shahid Mallya’s title track Toh Dishoom is already getting a lot of play right now.


Have you watched Kabali yet?

Forbes thought that Dishoom would face tough competition from the Boss’s Kabali this weekend. You think so? Are you buying into the Kabali hype or will you prefer to go the Dishoom way this weekend?


You’ll probably not be able to watch the bootlegged copy anyway

The makers are doing all they can to prevent piracy and to stop bootlegged copies of the film negatively impacting the film’s fortunes at the box office.


Meanwhile here is the trailer of Dishoom to help you decide –
