There's a whole lot of injustice to get worked up about.

Action makes Bollywood go round.

One of its favourite sound effects -- dishoom dishoom -- refers to the glorious sound of the baddie getting thrashed and thumped by the hero or heroine. It's also the sound that accompanies and enriches our enthusiasm when knocking a fist in the air.

But there's a whole lot of injustice and inanity, besides an infuriating villain, to get worked up about.

As John Abraham and Varun Dhawan get ready to Dishoom this Friday, we found 10 reasons to dishoom as well!

If you do too, list them below in the message board.


Dishoom #1

When folks destroy visibly fresh and fabulous fruits to roll and romp over them as though it's an acupressure-enabled bed for romance.


Dishoom #2

IMAGE: Bhagyashree and Salman Khan in Maine Pyar Kiya.

When the girlfriend's pig-headed papa spurns your attempt to impress him by doing a month's donkeywork in a quarry, even though your own old man is rich enough to buy it, citing soiled currency. What a fusspot!


Dishoom #3

When guy resting his foot on a girl's belly, almost appears like he's kicking her, passes off as choreography or, worse, an act of passion. Grrr…


Dishoom #4

When the heroine is made to tiptoe around chilling Alaskan glaciers in a flimsy chiffon sari while the hero stays cozy in warm woollens and she still gets half the remuneration. Gender discrimination murdabad!


Dishoom #5

IMAGE: Aamir Khan in Rangeela.

When your date shows up looking like that. Egad!


Dishoom #6

IMAGE: Rekha in Madam X.

When the hairstylist takes your request to experiment a tad too seriously and you realise in the worst way possible that you're NOT David Bowie.


Dishoom #7

IMAGE: Govinda and Shakti Kapoor in Raja Babu.

When Bollywood shows a frustrating resistance to grow up. All the worse, it tries to be cute about it.


Dishoom #8

IMAGE: Dhanush and Sonam Kaoor in Raanjhanaa.

When a moronic chap skips school to stalk the heroine and she encourages his obsession by flashing a smile.


Dishoom #9

IMAGE: Priyanka Chopra and Harman Baweja in Love Story 2050

When Bollywood predicts our future will look something as ghastly as this.


Dishoom # 10

IMAGE: Kabir Bedi, Pooja Hegde and Arunoday Singh in Mohenjo Daro.

When Bollywood assumes our past looked something as absurd as this.
