Synopsis of the Indian movie `Dhoom 2`
Dhoom 2 opens with an amazing scene set in the desert of Nabim. A royal family is on a train and they are travelling with a rare and precious stone. Suddenly a flash strikes on screen and suddenly it seen that the centuries old Royal Crown is not there. The police are sure about the thief and this is Mr. A, played by Hrithik Roshan. This is so evident because he leaves an `A` symbol after each robbery. Mr. A steals the English crown and he does this by sky diving onto a train. He disguises himself as the queen and thus steals the crown, and escapes.
He is pursued by ACP Jai Dixit played by Abhishek Bachchan, ACP Shonali Bose played by Bipasha Basu, and Sub Inspector Ali Akbar played by Uday Chopra.
On the other hand, Ali, who was a thief in the first part of `Dhoom` becomes a police officer. He is now ACP Jai Dixit`s nearer ones. He has graduated from a mechanic to a cop. It is their mission to keep a track on the crime of India. He and his senior Jai Dixit work together to bring criminals to book. Shonali Bose is Jai`s college friend, now a sharp shooter who believes in gunning down thieves rather than catching them. She is an expert on the thefts by Mr. A, a mysterious, nameless thief and a master of guises whose real face none has seen.
Jai and Shonali team up to catch Mr. A on his next robbery in Mumbai. But the elusive thief slips through their fingers after stealing a priceless diamond. That`s not it. Mr. A throws a challenge to the cops by announcing his next target.
It is on this robbery Aishwarya Rai is introduced as a masked thief who impresses Mr. A Sunehri , makes an impression on the international thief and soon wins his trust. Mr. A introduces himself as Aryan and takes Sunehri under his wing. Attempting to catch Sunehri in the act, Shonali breaks her leg. Mr. A agrees to take Sunehri into partnership, not knowing that she is actually working for the police.
Mr. A and Sunehri go to Copacabana in Rio De Generio. At that place Mr. A plans something big. Jai and Ali also reach the place as they always keep a track on the couple. While in Brazil the two polices stay with Shonali`s sister Monali. She is exactly like Shonali and Jay and Ali guess that she is her sister. The two cops ultimately reveal that Mr. A`s real name is Aryan Singh. Aryan has already trusted Sunehri and started liking her. But soon he finds that she is working against Mr. A and accuses her of betrayal. Sunehri realizes that she loves him. Their plan of robbery becomes successful but they fail to escape. In the end Sunehri shoots Aryan and he ultimately falls off a cliff. Sunehri claims that she did it out of love. At the end they are seen working at a restaurant. It is understandable that Sunheri did this just to save Mr. A. Jai drops in unexpectedly but leaves them alone. He does so as because Aryan hands over the details of where he has saved the loot from all his robberies. The film has a happy ending.
