Dhoom (2004) - the action thriller

Indian movies had seldom seen movies like these - a high voltage running chase between some smart thieves and a great policeman who pursues them to the bitter end. If a movie can be scripted and directed to be slick, it can be fairly impressive, and Dhoom was that. Don't expect any great script, any major story or message, but if you want an action flick that is fast and furious, then this is a movie certainly worth watching. Obviously, none of the characters of the movie are known for their excellent emoting abilities, but then they were not expected to do so. So, throw in some great action sequences, skin show, and fast songs, and you can have a movie that is bound to be a hit, and so Dhoom was (one measure of a movie being a hit is that there is a sequel soon, and so Dhoom2 came out just 2 years later).

Dhoom (2004) - the action thriller starring John Abraham, Abhishek Bachchan, Uday Chopra, Rimi Sen, Esha Deol

The movie was produced by Aditya Chopra (Yash Raj films being the banner), and directed by Sanjay Gadhvi. The music was by Pritam, lyrics by Sameer, with the story being penned by Vijay Krishna Acharya. The movie won a few awards, with John Abraham winning awards for the negative role (although to give John an acting award takes some courage)
# 2005: IIFA Best Villain Award - John Abraham
# 2005: Zee Cine Award for Best Actor in a Negative Role - Johan Abraham
The movie is about the cat and mouse battle between the gang led by John Abraham, who start stealing from banks, without leaving traces for the police to investigate (and catch them). They use high powered bikes to evade the police when required, and make their getaways in a trace. They also lead a normal life as employees of a pizza outlet, and try to make their life as normal as possible (a good scene in the movie is when John Abraham throws the new flashy car of a gang member off a cliff as it would call attention to sudden riches).
Enter the ACP Jai Dixit (Abhishek Bachchan), married to Sweetie (Rimmii Sen). He has a mission to run these thieves down, and towards this purpose, recruits a racer and bike mechanic Ali (Uday Chopra). Ali has a girlfriend Sheena (Esha Deol in a major skin showing role that made her into a glamour doll), but unknown to him, she is also a member of Abraham's gang. Jai has, at the same time, managed to get Ali into the gang as his spy, so that he can eventually track them down and catch them. Does he suceed in the end ? What happens to Ali ? Watch the movie (either on TV whenever it appears, or on DVD) and get a thrill.

Lyrics from the movie Dhoom:

Dhoom Machale (Sung by Sunidhi chauhan):

Ishq ishq karna hai kar le
Ishq ishq mein jee le mar le
Ishq ishq hai sab se pyaara
Ishq ishq karna hai kar le
Ishq ishq mein jee le mar le
Ishq ishq na ho dobaara
Ishq hi to zindagi hai
Ishq hi to har khushi hai
Ishq mein khud ko bhulaake jhoom
Dhoom machaale dhoom machaale dhoom - 4
(Hota hai kya ishq hota hai kya
Deewaanon se poochh le
Yeh machalte hain kyoon
Hanske jalte hain kyoon
Parwaanon se poochh le) - 2
Ishq ke din chaar pyaare
Ishq ho ek baar pyaare
Ishq ki parchhaaiyon ko choom
Dhoom machaale dhoom machaale dhoom - 4
(Tanha koi kabhi jee na sake
Sab ko yahan hai pata
Bekhabar ajnabi mere dil ne jo ki
Tu bhi kar le haseen voh khata) -2
Ishq mein har pal maza hai
Ishq dhadkan ka nasha hai
Ishq ki galiyon mein aake ghoom
Dhoom machaale dhoom machaale dhoom -4
You want more? Are you sure?
Okay, one two three four
Ishq ishq karna hai kar le
Ishq ishq mein jee le mar le
Ishq ishq hai sab se pyaara
Ishq ishq karna hai kar le
Ishq ishq mein jee le mar le
Ishq ishq na ho dobaara
Hana, hshq hi to zindagi hai
Ishq hi to har khushi hai
Ishq mein khud ko bhulaake jhoom
Dhoom machaale
Dhoom machaale dhoom machaale dhoom -3

Dhoom Dhoom (English) (Sung by Tata Young)

Dhoom dhoom come and light my fire
Dhoom dhoom let me take you higher
Dhoom dhoom wanna feel that burnin'
Dhoom dhoom it' s a wild emotion
Dhoom dhoom passion and devotion
Dhoom dhoom now the wheels are turnin'
Move your body close to mine now
Let me feel your love divine now
Together we' ll explode and we' ll go
Boom boom boom boom
Dhoom machaale dhoom machaale dhoom -4

Dhoom dhoom am gonna make you sweat now
Dhoom dhoom let' s get all wet now
Dhoom dhoom gotta get down on it
Dhoom dhoom till the early morning
Dhoom dhoom until the dawning
Dhoom dhoom I know that you want it
Shake your body down to the ground
Once you go there' s no turnin' round
Tonight we gonna make the world go
Boom boom boom boom
Dhoom machaale dhoom machaale dhoom -4

This burning inside you know you just cannot hide
So don' t fight the feeling just let your body decide
Where you get down on the road
It' s a wild overload
Ridin' higher than you ever did before
Dhoom dhoom let your body do the talkin'
Dhoom dhoom I wanna keep on rockin'
Dhoom dhoom I want it twenty four seven
Dhoom dhoom get the rhythm of the beat now
Dhoom dhoom feel the fire and the heat now
Dhoom dhoom take a trip to heaven
I wanna feel the wind in my hair now
Spread the power everywhere now
Feel the magic just go zip zap zoom…
Dhoom machaale
Dhoom machaale dhoom machaale dhoom -4
