Whoa, I must really love Bollywood. I just downloaded a song to my Ipod with a chorus that contains the words, "Excuse Me to Please"(It's catchy,ok? And I'm really really hoping the incorrect word usage is intentional).
What's even more hilarious is that I downloaded the entire soundtrack from Dhoom 2 immediately after watching it--Even though I don't speak Hindi and didn't really like the movie all that much.
Why did I decide to buy into the hype and watch Dhoom 2, even though I'm not really an action movie fan? Well, I can't really answer that. I guess I was just starting to dabble in Bollywood, and anything with the Yash Raj banner seemed to be a fairly safe bet(I've since branched out and changed my opinion, but that's a whole different conversation), at least where direction and smoothness is concerned. And Dhoom 2 was advertised in all the Indian grocery stores in my neighborhood, so I figured that had to mean something.
I can't say I regret my decision. Dhoom 2 wasn't really all that bad, but it wasn't really all that good, either. It was like a mediocre Hollywood action flick you go on a first date to see and you forget about until you see the DVD on a clearance shelf at Wal-Mart and you go, "Oh, yeah. The movie I saw with so-and-so." Nothing memorable or special, except for a few bonuses:
