Almost Dhoom

Dhoom machte machte rahe gaya. How many times has this happen a hindi movie that it starts pretty well, increases the expectations and then falters at some point. This movie fits perfectly into the "good, but could have been better" classification.
Good concept, good bikes, a decent abhishek bachchan and john abrahim. While most hindi movies have 2-3 simultaneous stories running, this sticks to its one and only story.
But the starcast otherwise could have been better. There could have been more than just one big bike chase. The high energy "Dhoom Machale" song could have been choreographed on someone having more energy than esha deol.
So many coulds. Well, still the verdict should to given on the effort and I call it another step towards hollywood.
