One hot villain, and uber stylish bikes have been synonymous with Bollywood’s popular “Dhoom” franchise — and if the teaser of “Dhoom 3” is anything to go by, Aamir Khan, who plays the baddie, will take the series forward with full speed.
Aamir showcases his chiselled body in full glory, and he vrooms away on the bike, performing daredevil stunts with what seems like the ease of a professional biker.
Unlike the previous two movies, which starred John Abraham and Hrithik Roshan as the bad guys, “Dhoom 3” has gone international with a larger plot.
If the buzz for the third instalment of the Yash Raj Films’ project was not enough already, the teaser, which was released online Wednesday, managed to build up more anticipation in the audiences’ mind.
The teaser got uploaded on YouTube Sep 4 and has since then got over 150,000 views.
In response to the teaser on YouTube, messages like “Aamir is back” and “Aamir power rules” poured in.
One viewer posted, “Awesome movie! I will be watching this movie on first show”, while a certain Rahul Bhardwaj posted: “This biker will beat the ‘Express’.”
We will have to wait until Dec 20 to see whether “Dhoom 3” manages to surpass the success of Shah Rukh Khan’s “Chennai Express”.
The teaser opens with the sound of a bike’s vrooming, and the camera then zooms in to show Aamir’s muscle power. He gives a poignant voiceover, and then begins the chase.
Abhishek Bachchan as supercop Jai Dixit is seen at his adventurous best suspended from a helicopter, while Uday Chopra as his right hand Ali, zips and zooms on his hi-tech bikes as usual.
Katrina Kaif adds the girl and glamour power — and, boy, she looks athletic!
Overall, the stunts in the Vijay Krishna Acharya-directed movie look well executed — especially that one shot where Aamir carefully skids his bike under a truck. A great escape indeed.
The past instalments have bagged hit status at the box office. Let’s hope this one creates as much ‘dhoom’.
