Dhoom: 2 falls short of expectations

It is bigger and splashier than the first film in the series, but Dhoom:2 is less entertaining than its predecessor.

Though Dhoom was unconvincing like most Bollywood masala films, it was still a pleasant package and went on to become a surprise hit in India. Now, its director Sanjay Gadhvi has made a far more exotic film, with a bigger star cast that includes Aishwarya Rai at her bewitching best.

But the clumsily-scripted film is entertaining only intermittently. And while it has a few funny scenes involving the inept police officer Ali (Uday Chopra), it never goes full blast at anything it tries.

Given its attractive star cast and hype -- not to forget two energetic songs, one featuring Bipasha Basu and the other Hrithik Roshan -- the film may still emerge as a crowd-pleaser.
