Dhoom 3 Movie Review
In 1990, Iqbal Harun Khan’s (Jackie Shrof) Great Indian Circus in Chicago, Illinois, closes when he cannot repay his loan. Sahir, his little son, asked them both to come soon. But Iqbal refuses and kills himself in front of the heartless head of the Anderson bank.
23 years later, Sahir (Aamir Khan) looted various branches in the West Bank. Despite the best efforts of the police, the robbery could not be prevented and he managed to escape. Officer Victoria (Tabret Bethel) enlists ACP Jai Dixit (Abhishek Bachchan) and his partner, Inspector Ali Akbar Fateh Khan (Uday Chopra), to help solve the case.
Jai lures Sahir into another robbery and explains that this is the case and the thief is an amateur. On the other hand, Sahir restarts the Great Indian Circus which was closed due to Iqbal’s death. There he appoints Alia Hussein (Katrina Kaif), a new acrobat in his circus. Sahir introduces himself as Jay’s informant and manages to gather information about the bank while allowing Jay to follow them. Eventually Sahir storms the bank and flees, but Jai and Ali follow him. Jay, while hanging from the helicopter ladder, manages to shoot Sahir’s left shoulder before disappearing.
Sahir had a major premiere at the Great Indian Circus with his lead stuntman, Aliya, including a trick where he disappeared in one place and reappeared in another. The show was a success, but then Jay, Ali, and the police surrounded him knowing he was the thief. Jay said the evidence was gunshot wounds, but when Sahir was examined there was no evidence on his body. It is later revealed that Sahir has an autistic twin brother, Samar, who helps him pull out his tricks, helps him plan and carry out the robbery, and also points out that Samar was the one who received the wound.
Jay is fired from the case, but is encouraged by Ali to prove Sahir’s guilt. Eventually, Jay finds out about Samar and looks for a way to cover up Sahir. Samar, abandoned spiritually, is kept in solitude by Sahir. He leaves Samar outside once a week, however, and Jay manages to befriend him during that time to carry out his plans. Samar falls in love with Alia after participating in a circus with her, but cannot express it.
This created a rift between the brothers. Jai tries to take advantage of this, but Sahir understands and foils Jai’s plan to stop him. When Sahir walks in disguised as Samar, Jay reveals his true identity and accepts him as Samar and asks him to surrender for justice for them. When Sahir is revealed, he connects Jay with a roller coaster. He starts the train, but Ali arrives just in time to save him from destruction.
He decided that the only way to catch the brothers was to steal. Sahir and Samar carry out their latest bank robbery and escape. However, the next day, Jay manages to drive her around the corner on her way out of town. Samar is hesitant to run when Aliya appears and begs him to stop. Sahir gives up on Jai and asks him to save Samar. Jai agrees, but Sahir immediately tries to jump out of the dam.
Samar grabs Sahir’s hand and refuses to let go. Sahir asks Samar for something else and says he can live freely with Aliya. But Samar says they both were born together and have to die together. Soon Samar lost his footing and both fell into the abyss, but smiled at each other. The West Bank of Chicago is closed for theft while Aalia announces that she has taken over the Great Indian Circus and is still performing for it.
