Dishoom Review and Ratings- There have been many movies based on sports in Bollywood, especially revolving around Cricket, and Dishoom is one amongst them. The story is an action-adventure comedy genre. John Abraham and Varun Dhawan have primarily taken the screen in amazement with their humorous acting despite the corny storyline.
Basically the story revolves around a top Indian cricketer Viraj Sharma (Saqib Saleem) going missing in Middle East just before the final match of India and Pakistan. When the Indian government gets to know that their top player is been kidnapped before a crucial match, they appoint Kabir Shergill (John Abraham) on the job. When the news reaches Middle East Embassy, they immediately offer possible help to Kabir Shergill to find Viraj Sharma. This is when Kabir chooses Junaid (Varun Dhawan) to be a part of his team. On the other Junaid has no experience to solve any case by far and is very happy to be chosen by Kabir Shergill.
The story is quite predictable but the acting put up by John Abraham and Varun Dhawan is worth watching it once. Jacqueline Fernandez is seen in her ever glamourous look and has done good acting. Amidst all this, we get to see Akshaye Khanna back on screen with a bang. We also get to see Akshay Kumar in a cameo role that is hilarious. Other cameo roles include Nargis Fakri, Parineeti Chopra and cricketers like Javed Miandad, Mohinder Amarnath and Atul Wasan.
The film’s run time is 2 hours and the visuals are extremely glossy and glamourous. Cinematography is very well done. You will also find peppy dance numbers which are already in the music chartbusters.
In total, Dishoom is a humor packed movie with good piece of acting done by Varun Dhawan and John Abraham. The story line is predictable but it can be given a shot for its wittiness.
