The anthem comes across as an ode to the Dhoom series and has clips from all three films, featuring a star-studded cast.
While the likes of Aamir Khan, Hrithik Roshan, Aishwarya Rai, John Abraham, Katrina Kaif and Bipasha Basu are seen amply in the video, Abhishek Bachchan and Uday Chopra, who have been among the regular cast in the series strangely features in just one clip in the video. Meanwhile the original Dhoom girl Esha Deol is starkly missing from the video.
The three-minute song has been re-composed by Raghav Sachar and was choreographed and directed by Adil Shaikh.
The song presents a fresher take on the original 'Dhoom' song, with raunchy beats and tweaked vocals. However, the song - despite being in sync in parts and at times catchy - falls flat as a whole. Sloppy and lackadaisical choreography falls low and offers no uniqueness.
Saba, as the singer-cum-performer, does a decent job and looks pricey but fails to lift up the video, which could have been a better answer to the bland "Dhoom 3" title song.
A youtube user opined that the 'Dhoom Anthem' fared better than the "Dhoom 3" tile song, featuring Katrina Kaif. However, the song received its share of criticisms with complaints of poor vocals and amateurish presentation.
The video, released on Christmas, has managed just average views so far.
