Dhoom ( , , ) is a Bollywood film and the first installment in the Dhoom series. It is produced by Yash Raj Films' Aditya Chopra (son of Yash Chopra) and was released in 2004. Earning over Rs. 55 crore ($12 million USD), the film became one of the top-grossing Indian films of 2004. This was the first action film made by Yash Raj Films in 19 years, since Vijay (1988), and brought in a new genre of movies akin to the fast paced motorcycle-robbery dramas. Its sequel, Dhoom 2, was released in 2006 in India.

Synopsis

The story starts in the city of Mumbai where a gang of graduates start breaking into banks and other public places and vanishing on the Western Express Highway.

ACP Jai Dixit (Abhishek Bachchan) a no-nonsense cop, is called inside the case. He is married to Sweety (Rimi Sen). Jai seeks the help of a thief named Ali (Uday Chopra) and devises a trap to catch the gang, but it fails. Kabir(John Abraham), the leader of the gang, eventually taunts Dixit by saying that he couldn't catch Kabir even if he were right in front of him. He is proved correct and the failure of Dixit seemingly leads to the break-up of his partnership with Ali.

Kabir then lures Ali into his gang to replace Rohit, the gang member who was killed by Jai. Ali falls in love with Sheena (Esha Deol), another gang member. The gang later goes to Goa to perform one last big heist before becoming disbanded forever. Kabir now sets his eyes on the biggest casino in all of India. Kabir and his gang swiftly loot the casino on New Year's Eve, but soon they realize that Jai has led them right into a trap. Ali was working for Jai the whole time and a fight ensues.

Kabir manages to escape from Jai, and goes back to the gang's truck where Ali has tied up Sheena. Kabir then viciously beats up Ali for his betrayal, but Ali is saved by the timely arrival of Jai at the scene. The gang minus Sheena flees, while Jai and Ali give chase. Kabir tries to escape on his bike. He is then cornered by Jai and Ali with nowhere to go. Kabir decides to commit suicide rather than let Jai arrest him. The movie ends with Jai and Ali bickering as usual.

Crime inspired by Dhoom

The movie had a significant cultural impact among urban Indian youth. It was blamed for an increase in incidents of street racing; bike-borne theft and stunting on public roads. Besides, there was a new impetus to the bike-modifying scene with youth going in for modifications to their bikes ranging from free flow exhaust systems to addition of NOS kits. These in turn, gave rise to incidents of speeding and breakage of traffic rules on the already unruly Indian streets.Robbery increased in cities where people after taking their money from ATM or from banks were robbed at gunpoint and the robbers escaping on bikes

In Malappuram districtmarker of Keralamarker, four members of a group of criminals had cracked the floor of South Malabar Gramin Bank on the early hours on 30 December 2007 and looted Rs. 25 lakhs and 80 kilograms of gold. Estimated to be worth Rs. 8 crores, the robbery is considered to be one of the biggest thefts in Kerala’s crime records. The Kerala Police have arrested four people in connection with this and the leader admitted that it was inspired by Dhoom movie. In the movie the robbers also made a hole on the ground floor of the bank and got away with the valuables during the new-year event.
