Dhoom 3 is an Indian (Bollywood) action thriller produced Aditya Chopra and directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya. Dhoom 3 is the third movie in the popular Dhoom series, and is the most expensive Bollywood movie to date with a budget exceeding 20 million US Dollars, and is the top grossing Bollywood movie of all time.
Dhoom 3 is based in 1990 in the American city of Chicago and follows the lives of the characters after the Circus that they run cannot afford to repay its loans and is shut down by the bank.
As a resulting of the bank shutting the circus down and a friend committing suicide, the plot moves to the robbing of the banks to fund the development of the circus. After successfully robbing the offending bank and funding the circus, the crowd loves the new show. One of the tricks in the show allows the movie to reveal that the main character has an autistic brother which aided in ripping off the banks, and the brother who was initially thought to be injured in reality wasn’t.
The movie ends on a slightly grim note with the image of characters plummeting off a bridge that in itself is self-reflexive as the movie very early on revealed the notion of suicide. The bank is also forced to close a result of the heist. The circus is shown as having continued to go on, even without the brothers who were able to finance the resurgence of the circus.
Aamir Khan stars in Dhoom 3, and is one of the most successful Bollywood actors of all time. His experience and expertise shines through in his role as Sahir, and that allows the movie to be a true standout.
Dhoom 3 has strong characters, directing, and plot development that rival that of any indie or Hollywood movie today. The film has solid action and keeps the viewer hungry for more, and as a result captivates the audience with relative ease for the duration of the show. Overall a great movie with a solid meaning.
