Dum Maaro Dum

Dum Maaro Dum is an angry beast of a film.This proves to be the greatest, and most unexpected and unpredictable, of masterstrokes that Rohan Sippy affects the movie with.
Limbo is what most of these characters are in… even the otherwise-villain Biscuit has a genuine moment of feeling betrayed… and the feeling of being ‘lifeless’ is felt tangibly real for every one of them. Most of all for Kamath, as played effectively here by Abhishek Bachchan in a performance that exhibits rage of a different kind from the one he displayed in Raavan. This one is scarier, though subdued… perhaps his ghostly gait makes him the perfect fit for this role… but really, this is a performance that just gets better as the reels keep unspooling… emerging as one of his top three ones maybe by the time the film finishes to a whopper of a climax where the ‘ghosts’ become the only warriors to battle the ‘darkness’.
