Buddy cop movies are pretty interesting and fun to watch. Few Bollywood movies like Main Khiladi Tu Anari, Bade Miya Chote Miyan and Dhoom series have managed to entertain the audience and kept them on their toes. John Abraham, Varun Dhawan, Akshaye Khanna and Jacqueline Fernandez starrer Dishoom kept audience entertained and thrilled 5 years back. Let us check how much Rohit Dhawan directed action drama fared at the box office.
Dishoom tells the story of two cops – Kabir (played by John Abraham) and Junaid (played by Varun Dhawan), who goes on a critical mission to save Indian Cricket top batsman Viraj Sharma (played by Saqib Salim) who has been kidnapped by Wagah (played by Akshaye Khanna) during a cricket series in the Middle East. The two cops have 36 hours in hand to find Viraj before the time runs out.
Sarpatta Parambarai Movie Review : Electrifying Boxing Drama That Creates Magic With Brilliant Performances
Directed by Rohit Dhawan, whose previous film was a disappointing “Desi Boyz”, had definitely made a good comeback with Dishoom. Coming to the performances, John Abraham and Varun Dhawan does what they are best at. John Abraham plays the macho-tough guy (similar to his Rocky Handsome) and he handles it well. Varun Dhawan handles the comic scenes brilliantly and comes as ‘complete entertainer. Jacqueline Fernandez is used for bringing the glamour to the film but was strictly okay. However, the biggest surprise package is Akshaye Khanna who made a solid comeback as the villain and does well with his dialogue delivery. Dishoom packs in a solid punch with good performances, stylish and well-executed action scenes.
Dishoom opened to Rs 11.07 crore on its first day and went on to collect Rs 53.74 crore in first week. Released in 3000 screens, Dishoom collected Rs 70.03 crore crore against a budget of Rs 55 crore, turning out to be profitable at the box office.
Dishoom also Saqib Saleem in key role and was produced by Sajid Nadiawala under Nadiawala Grandsone Entertainment.
