Taran Adarsh, Bollywood Hungama
Vishnu has texture and authenticity but the other characters are much thinner. The villain, Lorsa Biscuta played by Aditya Pancholi, has little menace about him. And the truly intriguing characters, the Russian and Nigerian Mafiosi, are just fringe player

The final twist is interesting but the makers' undecided, shabbily structured culmination of two hours of build-up punctures the possibility of a three star rating. It's pretty much how Abhishek tricks a bunch of small-timers into believing he's pumping d

ACP Vishnu Kamath (Abhishek Bachchan) had hit rock bottom in his career and his personal life when he suddenly gets a second chance at redemption.

Dum Maro Dum is a suspense thriller made stylishly but loses all its impact in the second half. The movie has a lot of 'dum' in the title. However, the going may not be easy at the box office.

Yet, is this enough to call it a bad film or even a badly made good film? With so much hype and gloss surrounding the film, does Dum Maaro Dum deliver? No and Yes. With awesome performances, great visuals, a thought out story and easy to understand screen

'Dum Maaro Dum' is a decent watch though one strongly believes that if only the momentum as created at the beginning would have sustained till the end, this keenly antcipated film could have been a new chapter in the genre of suspense thrillers.

Every paradise has a few snakes and so has Goa, the tourist paradise in India. There is something special about Abhishek Bachchan playing the role of a cop. Be it Dhoom series or Dum Maaro Dum, the attitude that Abhishek carries as a cop comes out clearly
Overall, the movie is worth a watch minus violence all around
K N Gupta, Smash Hits
Dum Maaro Dum does have the ingredients for an interesting one time watch. A romantic song suspense element an item number action drama etc should be reasons enough to entice the audience.

With some cutting edge background music and a haunting song by Papon which remains in your head, Dum Maaro Dum is a stylish thriller written as smartly as it is directed.
