Siddhanth Dheer (Sanjay Dutt) has the most challenging job in India. He works with Aditi Kumar (Shilpa Shetty), who wears clothes so tight, we had to write a special program to calculate the tensile stress at the seams. As if that weren't enough challenge, he also heads the Anti-Terrorism Center of India at New Delhi, which is the central place to get in touch with if you have witnessed a terrorist attack or are planning one.
One day Siddhanth gets to know that someone unidentified is planning an attack somewhere unspecified which will kill an as-yet-undecided number of innocent people. After searching on Google to see if he can get any more information, he decides that the best way to tackle this is to pre-empt the terrorists and launch an attack himself - no, not on the innocent people, but on the terrorists.
So he calls his crack team, consisting of Shashank Dheer (Abhishek Bachchan), Aditya Singh (Zayed Khan) and Aditi, and tells them that they have to go to Canada. You're wondering about how that seems to be such a simple solution to a global menace, when you realize that there is actually something he needs them to do in Canada - there's a key man in the main villian's clan there, Mehdi (Pankaj Kapur), who he wants his boys to kidnap, and get information about what this act of terror is that is being planned.
So Shashank and Aditya leave for Canada, and meet Neha (Esha Deol), Siddhanth's charge d'affairs there, who spends so much time making moves on Shashank, she looks like a workaholic. They also run into Danish (Suniel Shetty), a Canadian police officer who is going through a divorce for the most common reason - he's married.
Together they kidnap Mehdi, who tells them about the ruthless kingpin Jaamwal (Gulshan Grover) who's masterminding the whole attack, scheduled to happen on May 10 (hence Dus). The target is to kill about 25,000 innocent people - or at least 25,000 people, since it is hard to ascertain if all the 25,000 people are innocent.
It appears to our trio that that is a rather large number, and if the movie wanted 25,000 innocent people to die, it would've just given Dia Mirza a larger role. So they take on the terrorist ring, helped ably by Siddhanth who himself comes to Canada, and the film hurtles towards a plebian climax.
The film is primarily candy-floss and chic packaged in some Grand Guinol thrills. With a starcast like this one has, you can't go wrong. The plot does have its moments in some twists of unbridled self-worth, but it also has as many holes that it wimps out of off. All lead actors deliver, but it's mostly Shilpa Shetty for the men and Abhishek Bachchan for the women that make the flick user-friendly. All other women make blink-and-you-miss-them appearances.
The visuals, especially the Canadian locales, are full of chutzpah. The film has the stamp of RGV all over it in cinematography and editing, and the background score revs you into resonance. The title song is obviously a dance-floor hit, if the reaction of the mostly teeny-bopper crowd in Prasad's is anything to by. They seem to like Abhishek Bachchan, too. What does that sound like to you?
