Phil Milenge was a good movie although I wouldn't say its a remake of Philadelphia with Tom Hanks and Denzel Washington but the story was borrowed. Shilpa Shetty hardly had any substantial roles throughout her career but here she got a chance to shine. This movie was her best performance till date. She was excellent in drama roles and managed to express her emotions very well. Salman Khan was good although he done the film due to his rapport with Revathi whom he co-starred with in Love. Abhishek Bachchan does well.
Dhoom was superb and perhaps the best in the franchise. Many would say it was their first action film since Vijay but that movie was mainly drama. Therefore I don't agree. Action sequence was were excellent with drama and tension. John Abraham was excellent as the baddie and thankfully he didn't die otherwise it would have been cliched. Abhishek Bachchan was good in a full-fledged role unlike Dhoom 2. Esha Deol and Uday Chopra perform well.
It still proved to be a Super Hit and third highest grosser of 2004.
