Dhaam Dhoom movie is definitely a tollywood thriller. The late cinematographer turned Director Jeeva passed away before completing this movie. Dhaam Dhoom has been shot significantly in Russia, where Jeeva breathed his last during the shoot schedule. The movie was taken over by his wife Aneez with the help of cinematographer P C Sriram and Jeeva’s assistants. Music director Harris Jeyaraj deserves many rounds of applause.
The story revolves around a handsome doctor Gautham Subramaniyam (Jeyam Ravi) whose parents are also doctors, leaving to Moscow (Russia) for a doctor’s conference representing India. His Marriage with Shenba (Kangana Renaut) his fiancé will be scheduled to happen after two weeks of his return.
In Russia, his weakest moments land him in bed with a stranger Anna (Kojernikova Maria) after getting drunk. Little did he know that he would wake up with her dead body and end up in a Russian jail for a murder offence that he did not commit. Sizzling Arthi Chinnappa (Lakshmi Rai) a Russian based Indian attorney defending him comes for rescue. Together they were threatened and chased by the Russian Mafias which keep us glued to the chair.Arthi begins to grow attracted to Gautham, and director Jeeva conveys this in an understated manner that gives the movie some class. Fresh from the success of Santhosh Subramaniyam, actor ‘Jayam’ Ravi dons a role that’s quite a departure from his feel-good romances. Jeyaram plays a surprising role gracefully and he is well known for it.
Climax disappoints and is as predicted. Manikandan, Rajasekhar and Jeeva himself (for some song sequences) have come out with alluring creative stuff Stunts are eventually innovative and Jeyam Ravi has given the best of him. Cinematography is mind-blowing, thanks to Thotta Tharani for his brilliant art and design work.
Jeyam Ravi’s performance and stunt action is improving significantly. Music proves to be the best plus with 'Anbe En Anbe' taking center stage. The hard work meted out after the director's demise is clearly showing. Good work from a good team.
