Dhoom 2

Bollywood movies have it all. Exotic places, action, romance, great music, dancing, partial English phrases, and pretty people. Dhoom 2 is no exception. I have never seen Dhoom 1 (I probably should) but it didn't matter. Sure, it is cheesy. Sure it is long. But I love these films. I don't think I could watch one every week but once in a while is great. Hrithik Roshan is by far my favorite Indian actor and I first saw him in my favorite Bollywood flick "Krrish" (highly recommend it). Dhoom 2 is the Indian equivalent of Mission Impossible 2 where the two main characters fight on motorcycles and everything seems to be slow motion, but it just works better in this movie. Plus, the absence of CGI as such a refreshing thing now-a-days. When he is being pulled by a train and snwoboarding/wakeboarding on the sand behind, I have to give them credit for doing it for real (even though it still looks kind of goofy). Check this one out if you want to laugh, and laugh, and laugh and watch some snowboarding on sand! 7/10

PS>Indian hunks should not play basketball on film.
