My Review : Dham Dhoom
Jeeva has tried a genre different from his earlier ones - action thriller which he does justice until his demise after which the makers seem to become clueless as to how to end the movie & it shows on the screen .He has taken a very interesting plot to start with , spiced it up with a cute village romance to keep it intersting & some thrilling chase & action . But once it changed hands , the movie goes downhill as the makers have desperately tried to complete it in a huff.
Plot : Young Doctor going to Russia to attend a conference ends up getting entangled in a murder conspiracy .How he gets himself out of this dangerous situation in an alien land forms the plot of the movie.
Jayam Ravi : Mr.Charming romantic hero has tried to don action hero mantle with this movie & he has succeeded to an extent . It is a welcome change from him who suits to the role to the T.
Kangana Ranauth : She dominates the scenes in which she is part of & proves why she is considered as one of the very few actress of bollywood who can ACT .
Laxmi Rai : A big break for her . For the first time she has "acted" in a movie which she has done very well . But the love angle of her's is little perplexing & dubious to say the least .
Jayaram : It is sad to see him in such an underwritten , insignificant role .
Harris Jayaraj: 2 songs are hum-worthy . Could have done better with the BGM.
JEEVA : He excells in the cinematography . Whether it is the lush locales of Pollachi or hustles & bustles of Russia , He has once again proved that he is master in Cinematography , can see the movie once for this alone and it makes one sad that we can no more see his mastery on screen .
Screenplay and direction is also by him. Movie is intersting & keeps us engaged upto 3/4th of the movie after which it nose dives badly to the end .
On the whole the movie is better than many other movies that has hit the screen this year ,if one can let off some illogical sequences , Cliches , Inspirations and some absurd dialogues . If one tries to harp on the logic or rather the lack of it , no heroes right from MKT upto Dhanush would have reaped success . They are part and parcel of movies not only in TC but world over .
Bottomline: Time to pay tirbute to one of the best cinematographers of all time .
