My Gut Feel and comments:
Dhoom franchise is a pictogram of style, larger than life canvas and great action. Now with Aamir khan leading from the front, dhoom 3 taken the offering to next level which has increased the curiosity of audience. One think is for sure, knowing the recent trend of stars driven films like Chennai express and Krish 3, dhoom 3 would also do the decent business and recover the extensive investment yash raj films has made. Chrishmas and new year euphoria would definitely boost the chances of high box office collections of this movie.
Vijay Krishna the director of this movie had done quality work in the past as script and dialogue writer and I am sensing that he has done a justice to significant grand opportunity he get with extravagant production house and picture perfect star cast. Aamir is a hardworking actor and seems to have pulled out special effort required for the film in terms of looks, physic and action sequences.
Contend wise personally I liked Dhoom 1 as compare to Dhoom 2 as it has better entertainment mass appeal. I am hoping dhoom3 would not be too complicated in presentation too difficult to relate and understand by masses. With a hope for engaging entertainer, I am giving this movie 3.5 stars out of 5 stars, four days before the release.
