Well, it wasn't quite that bad, but it was no Don! And considering we had driven down to Artesia to see Don, which was suddenly not playing, that was not good.

Dhoom 2 is a thrilling tale of....well, actually, I am not sure, because it really abandoned any semblance of a plot very quickly on and instead decided to show shiny, pretty people dancing and doing stunts without a lot of clothes on whenever it might need to have any sort of narrative. (Hrithik Roshan must have a clause in his contract that he must dance around oiled and shirtless for at least 40 minutes in every one of his films. If I liked him more I would approve of this.) I think there was something about a master thief and the cop who chases him, but that's as far as I'd venture a guess. There were some mighty long scenes of wet basketball playing. And lots of leaping off things. And Hrithik Roshan and Abhishek Bachchan engaging in mildly suggestive conversations, which seemed to suggest that they far more interested in each other than their love interests.

I felt the same way about Dhoom2. Was saying to my friend in the intermission that Don was much better than this, although did not like Don also that much.

BTW I think its not Hrithik but the directors who want to exploit his dancing skills too much ;-)

Hee! Both me and my friend are not huge Hrithik fans so we sort of miss the whole appeal, but judging by the audience reactions many people disagree with us!

I'm still interested in seeing it. I'm looking forward to any Hrithik and Ash dancing scenes.

Ash dances really well as always and without very much on, but her character is beyond annoying. And (I feel a bit weird writing this as I normally quite like her) she looks really odd in much of the film: I don't know if it's the result of her hair or some work she has done, or some strange makeup choice, but she does look odd.

what about Don? did you like it?

Don wasn't playing. :) It had (despite several listings assuring me this wasn't the case) been displaced for Dhoom 2. So as we'd driven all the way down there we decided that we might as well see something.

So I am still Donless. I guess I will have to wait until the DVD, which I hope comes out soon.

Best. Line. Ever.

Well, given that AB's wife just shouted at him, you can see why he might turn to HR. :)

I haven't seen the film and I don't really plan to but I totally agree with what you just said.
This is random but a friend of mine saw Koi Mil Gaya when it was released and I wanted to see it so I asked her what happened in the end (I'm a spoiler whore). She told me that Hrithik's character ended up with Jadoo *hearts on friend*.
