Will Dhoom: 2 rule the box office?
Bollywood has scored a hat trick this year with the success of three sequels - Phir Hera Pheri, Krrish and Lage Raho Munna Bhai. Will Dhoom 2, the latest to join the bandwagon, be equally lucky?
Dhoom-2, a sequel to the hugely successful movie Dhoom, is all set to woo the audiences in November. The original had Abhishek Bachchan, Uday Chopra, John Abraham, Esha Deol and Rimi Sen.
The sequel has Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai playing thieves. Hrithik replaces John from the earlier flick. Aishwarya and Bipasha Basu pitch in for Esha Deol and Rimi Sen.
The story of the film takes off from the first part. Ali's (Uday Chopra) dream of becoming a police officer finally turns into reality. He is Assistant Commissioner of Police Jai Dixit's (Abhishek Bachchan) right hand man. They try to keep a tight leash on crime together, but fate has something else in store for them. Aryan (Hrithik Roshan), a hi-tech international thief.
After pulling off a series of near-impossible heists all over the world, decides to move to Mumbai. That's when Ali and Jai's lives turn upside down.
Aryan finds his match in Sunehri (Aishwarya Rai), a petty yet clever thief. They decide to work together and thus the game begins. On the other hand Jai gets help from Shonali Bose, his college mate, now a police officer.
From the desert of Namibia to the backwaters of Goa, the mean streets of Mumbai and the ancient forts of Rajasthan, and finally to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil - the film promises to take the audiences on a ride through some of the most exotic locations in the world.
Apart from that, director Sanjay Gadhavi has laced it with the best of technology to turn it into a hi-tech thriller. The music score of Dhoom played an important part in its success, but the music of part two is not as appealing as the original.
The promos, however, have aroused a good amount of curiosity among movie buffs and in the trade circle.
