Netflix is always trying to recommend movies to me. So once and a while I let them do so. Go in blind, with trust.

So I let them send me Dhoom:2. Never saw the first one, but whatever.

It is an action flick. Intro scene involves the theft of crown jewels. From a moving train. So we are talking mission-impossible type scene. Parachute to the moving train, disguise, then of course snowboard/sandboard off the back of the train. Intense action, neat.

But then this happens...

Did you watch? You can't keep reading if you didn't. Because I sat there with my mouth hanging open.

I know, I know, this is bollywood. And they have the whole singing and dancing thing going on. But seriously, just stop and try to picture Tom Cruise, Toby Macguire, Bruce Willis, or even Shia LeBoeuf in that scene???

On the other hand, this actor is H-O-T hot. Dude, he can dance! And those abs. And pecs.

Final thing to note - there was an intermission to the movie. Because when you add in FIVE (count them, five) dance numbers movies become two and a half hours long. At least.

Sure, I enjoyed it overall. But just having a hard time adjusting to the song and dance breaks. Dude. C'mon.

Hrithik Roshan is a huge Indian movie star. When he goes out in public he there are riots in India. The other star is Abhishek Bachchan. They are like a set of Indian Barrymore and he happens to be married to Aishwarya Rai.
