Well, the nation refers this man as the country’s baton keeper, perfectionist of sorts who is known for his keen sense of detailing and lucidity when it comes to his movies. While the actor allegedly takes extreme interest in making everything ‘perfect’ for his character on his movie sets, right from the real beard and moustache days in Mangal Pandey to the brilliant homework in the Satyameva Jayate series, this time Aamir has certainly got it totally wrong. Blame it on my colossal expectations or the towering hype that envelops the Dhoom franchise, this motion poster did not quite excite me as a viewer. Here are 3 reasons why I feel our Perfectionist Aamir went the No-Perfection route this time round.
1. Flaunting a sculpted body is one that has caught the nation frenzy since Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai and for that matter even before that. But with Hrithik’s already stellar performance and suave charisma imbibed within Dhoom 2’s main antagonist character, it was always difficult for an almost 50 year old to match up to his flexed and perfectly well built body that oozed sex appeal. Whilst Aamir waved magic with his body, flaunting an eight pack in Ghajini, he misses the mark by miles in the recently released Dhoom 3 motion poster. A character that needed to outdo the sex appeal and the charismatic aura created by the likes of John Abraham and Hrithik Roshan, Aamir’s flab took away from him looking fab in the poster. While I still believe Aamir will score notches higher than anyone in the acting department, Dhoom 3 is one franchise that needed something more than just the acting bit. Aamir fails there way too miserably.
P.S. The Hat did not help much either!
2. The entire motion poster looks exactly like a still out of The Dark Knight series. The International Dark Knight Poster released worldwide has strange resemblances with the Dhoom 3 poster with Aamir facing the window pane as helicopters fly sky high. Plagiarism anyone? Well, coming from our very own Perfectionist, this uncanny alikeness is our major point of criticism. Sorry Mr. Khan, but we do expect eons higher from an artist, as creative and talented as you.
3. The sky rocketing expectations and anticipation came to almost ground zero as the motion poster, which boasted of being a cutting-edge espionage thriller isn’t quite slick in its presentation. While Chicago locales are the only standpoints in this almost-a-minute long motion poster, the background theme seems to be copy-pasted straight out of a PC car chase game! Extremely gimmicky and not even remotely close of its earlier editions in terms of sheen or caliber the Dhoom 3 first look is an utter showdown.
Although the film does seem promising, more likely because of the presence of a certain Khan, the quality and technicalities that was the major attraction in the earlier editions, clearly looks to be missing from the first look. Hopefully, the trailer wouldn’t disappoint us! Fingers crossed.
