Phil goes Bollywood: Phil watches DHOOM 2: BACK IN ACTION (2006)-December 13, 2011

While on my travels in India en route to Bollywood, I found another great high octane, action packed film, courtesy of my very good friend Heather in Niles! Known as D:2, D2, and D2: BACK IN ACTION in India, but the full title of the film is DHOOM 2: BACK IN ACTION!

Theatrical Indian Movie Poster (2006)
In part two of the series, Newly promoted A.C.P. officers Jai Dixit (Abhishek Bachchan) and his partner Ali (Uday Chopra) are on their biggest case to date: to capture the international master criminal known as "Mr. A" (Aryan Singh), who plans on stealing a rare and priceless artifact in Mumbai. Jai and Ali, along with fellow officer Sonali Bose (Bipasha Bau), fail to capture him, but he meets his match when he encounters the mysterious Sunehri (the beautiful Aishwarya Rai), and soon they form a partnership as they make their way to Rio for their next job. However, both Jai and Ali and their friend Monali Bose (Bau playing both roles) are hot on the duo's trail. To make things even more complicated, Sunehri isn't really who she says she is either, which sends Mr. A (real name Aryan) off the deep end.

Wow! This film really packs a punch on all levels, thanks to the film's director Sanjay Gadhvi (DHOOM, KIDNAP)! First the film has a very highly stylized look: fast camera panning, quick edits, fast paced car chases, martial arts action, gun fights, hot women and incredible music and dance numbers! But again it's Aishwarya Rai that's just captures your attention! Stunning, seductive, an oh so damn sexy! And also the woman can act and dance her booty off! The film's awesome, but men everywhere will see the film because of Rai. She is that gorgeous and that talented!

The film was released to theaters in India on November 24, 2006 and immediately became a boxoffice hit. It became the highest grossing Indian film of 2006 and and remains in the top ten on the list of highest-grossing Bollywood films in India. DHOOM:3, the final installment of the series, is set for release in 2013.

DHOOM 2: BACK IN ACTION is one helluva action film! Fans of the DIE HARD, LETHAL WEAPON, and BAD BOYS series will love this film. Five out of five stars!

DHOOM 2: BACK IN ACTION is currently available on DVD and can be purchased at your local video retailer or at Amazon. Visit their website at www.amazon.com

Thanks for reading, and enjoy the show!
