Is it a coincidence or what? The third instalment of the series ‘Dhoom’ is all set to release on Dec 20 this year and it is aptly titled ‘Dhoom 3’ or ‘D-3’ and there are talks about this third instalment reaching the coveted 300 crore mark, thereby creating a new category for successful movies. While the social media and the regular media are rife with the usual talks about the impending release of the much awaited movie, the real star of the movie – Aamir Khan is laying low.
The movie though has everything going for it. For one, it is definitely much awaited and there is a palpable excitement about it’s release. Then it is Aamir’s only movie to be released this year. The elusive and reluctant Khan does one movie at a time and thus any film release of his becomes an event for his fans. Also, let’s not forget the fact that this year has seen two movies break the seemingly unbreakable record of ‘Three Idiots’ of Rs. 200 crore. ‘Chennai Express’ did it first by making about Rs. 226 crores and then soon ”Krrish 3′ took the movie world by storm and managed a Rs.240 crore feat!
‘Dhoom 3’ comes from a established franchise what with ‘Dhoom’ and ‘Dhoom 2’ seeing huge success when they were released. The trademark of the franchise is slick action scenes, an alluring and attractive star cast, catchy music with new dance steps thrown in! What more could a Bollywood buff want? If the movie really does achieve the seemingly impossible Rs. 300 crore, then it would have set a new benchmark of sorts which will probably take some time to beat!
