Commercially DHOOM 3 has overhauled the first hallmark of success, 100 crore business and is still going strong and could be able to reach 200 crore as well. But, after that? This Christmas all the cinema halls have been booked for DHOOM 3 so perforce the audience would come and watch it, if they have to watch a movie. But perhaps for the first time the performance and movie of Aamir Khan is not being talked about in the same manner as it used to happen with his earlier films where his performance used to drive the success of the film.
While fans of Aamir Khan who adulate may not even like the fact that the charm of Aamir has started waning, it indeed is a fact as visible from his performance in DHOOM-3. There is an element of jade in his on-screen persona in the film and it comes out of every frame. May be in his zeal to build up a body of an acrobat of the gymnast, the oodles of muscles that he build for the film militates against the normal expression and most of the time it appears funny.
May be, the kind of serious demeanor that Aamir Khan brings into his performance was not required for the role of Sahir in DHOOM 3 as it is after all a light and peppy frothy film where element of humor was required in the characterization. Could it be the fact that is in the opening scene of the film, Aamir was shown walking down vertically on a sky scrapper it required concentration and seriousness, it ought not to have the defining template of the character for the film. And yes, if it was inspired from MI-3, where Tom Cruise had done this stunt, Tom was humorous otherwise in the film and may be Aamir could have done the same as well.
Commercially D 3 has already surpassed the collections of CHENNAI EXPRESS but would Sahir also be remembered in the same vein as the Aam Aadmi of CHENNAI EXPRESS or for that matter Rancho of 3 IDIOTS, which created hysteria, is a question whose answer is not difficult to fathom. May be, Aamir in his next film would indeed like to go back to his forte of comedy to bring about an element of realism into his performance.
