Right from day one, a buddy cop movie starring Bollywood’s favourite chocolate boy Varun Dhawan and everybody’s beloved action star John Abraham sounded like the perfect recipe for success. Now that the trailer is out we are more than a little confused. Dishoom tells a convoluted tale of a kidnapped ace Indian cricketer named Viraj (yeah, we all know who that’s supposed to be), and since India is too Anurag Kashyap for the taste of bigger directors, they decide to base the whole thing in the UAE.
The action feels like something out of a Rohit Shetty film while the comedy mostly misses the mark. Even though we are promised a Jai-Veeru sort of chemistry, for some reasons both the male leads play very similar characters making their equation feel flat. Still, this is just the trailer, but remember that age old adage - great trailers may lead to bad films but bad trailers rarely lead to great films.
Do check out the trailer and let us know what you think!
