Dishoom is made electric by Junaid and Kabir’s chemistry. Varun plays a funny, sunny guy with typically breezy perfection but John is surprisingly good, delivering sour one-liners with deadpan panache. The one-liners are stars in themselves – whether it’s Junaid scolding Kabir, “Gana pasand nahin tha, toh bol dete – music system todne ki kya zaroorat thi?” or a brilliant little to-and-fro about iPads and Lagaan, the dialogues keep you giggling, even in tense moments.Dishoom doesn’t fulfil the promise of a taut thriller but its crazy moments made enough Entertainment.The film evokes 1990s hits, from Main Khiladi Tu Anari to Govinda’s many friendly hits. The film has crazy cameos, including Nargis Fakhri sizzling in a bikini. The cameo that really smashes it is Akshay Kumar as ‘party animal Sameer‘, who murmurs silkily to the cops, “Kyun kiya bang bang? Humein hinsa se sakt nafrat hai,”, demanding they strip to their “shots” (hilariously matching peach numbers), sporting a pout, man-bun and wicked winks with sweet-sour swagger. Saqib’s competent while Akshaye has fun but for an actor of his ability, could’ve been sharper.
As could the entire film, it fleetingly evoked ISIS, Yazidi slaves, hooded hostages, but then rushes back to the domestic comforts of item numbers, pet dogs and ministers who say, “Call a press conference – the world needs to know.” But as an entertainer,b If you’re good with laughter, not logic, Dishoom is actually two much fun.
