“Imagine a mashup of Cirque du Soleil, steampunk and Bollywood—throw in a few motorcycle chases, a love story, a secret double, a heist and the year’s funkiest music—and you’re just beginning to scratch the surface of Dhoom 3. The crazy thing is, it all works. Although director Vijay Krishna Acharya’s story nominally follows the exploits of a pair of Indian buddy cops (Jai, lanky Abhishek Bachchan, the brains; and Ali, goofy Uday Chopra, the comic relief), the main spotlight falls on superstar Aamir Khan (Lagaan, Three Idiots) in a flashy turn as Sahir, a modern acrobat and illusionist working in Chicago. As a child, Sahir saw his circus impresario father ruined by a greedy banker, and ever since, Sahir has dedicated his life to avenging him by driving that bank into ruin. So he uses his illusionist skills to perpetrate one outrageous heist after another, leaving clues embellished with a circus-y flair and brazen Hindi-language graffiti—hence the need to call Jai and Ali from India to help solve the crimes. From that point, the story offers more twists than one of its Cirque-inspired performers, and largely sustains a breakneck pace for nearly three hours….dazzlingly mounted dance numbers that fill up the screen with life and color”—The Hollywood Reporter
