[[quoteright:228:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Dhoom_resize_4036.JPG]]
A successful series of {{Bollywood}} action-comedy films, released in 2004, 2006 and 2013 respectively. Both follow Mumbai supercop Jai Dixit and his partner Ali in their pursuit of supposedly unstoppable thieves. ''Dhoom 1'' features Kabir, leader of a local gang of motorcycle-riding bank robbers. ''Dhoom 2'' has Aryan, an international art thief and master of disguise. ''Dhoom 3'' has Sahir, the son of a circus owner seeking revenge against a bank for destroying his father's circus. {{Plot Hole}}s abound, but they possibly get away with it by taking RefugeInAudacity.

Do not confuse this with VideoGame/{{Doom}}, or even a {{Bollywood}} knockoff of Doom.
-----
!!These films contain the following tropes:

* BadassBiker: Kabir
* BadassDriver: Any character who operates a vehicle.
* [[spoiler: TheBadGuyWins: Sure, Sahir dies at the end of 3, but it is by suicide, on his own terms, and the Western Bank of Chicago shuts down.]]
* BetaCouple: Ali and Monali
* BuddyCopShow: Jai and Ali
** Or Ali and Sheena, depending on the movie.
* {{Chase Scene}}s: Include LostInACrowd, HotPursuit, SuicidalGotcha, and lots of SloMoBigAir.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Ali
* DancePartyEnding
* DisneyDeath: [[spoiler: Kabir in 1, Sahir and Samar in 3. Subverted with Aryan in 2; he falls, but somehow doesn't die.]]
* DrivenToSuicide: After the Western Bank of Chicago forecloses on Iqbal Khan's circus, he pulls out a gun and shoots himself in grief, right in front of the bank officials and his son.
* FakeDefector: [[spoiler: Ali in the first film]]
* FakingTheDead: [[spoiler: Aryan]]
* {{Fanservice}}: Constantly. Occurs as often with male characters as female characters.
* FauxActionGirl: Shonali in 2, Victoria in 3. Despite investigating Aryan's and Sahir's cases respectively for two years, bothe still doesn't know their thieving pattern. Jai figures it out within seconds.
* FemmeFatale: Sunehri in 2, Aaliya in 3
* GetOutOfJailFreeCard: [[spoiler: Aryan and Sunehri, though they do nothing to deserve it.]]
* GoryDiscretionShot: When Iqbal Khan commits suicide; we see only young Sahir screaming, and then an older Sahir having a CatapultNightmare as he pulls the trigger.
* GratuitousEnglish: Especially in 3. Expected, obviously, as it is set in Chicago
* HighHeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler: Sunehri. Subverted in that she ends up with Aryan, who is technically the bad guy. Although, by this point, he is considerably more sympathetic than the police chasing him.]]
* ImpossibleThief: Aryan and Sahir embody this trope.
* IncendiaryExponent
* {{Leitmotif}}
* MasterOfDisguise: Aryan, whose disguises run the gamut from LatexPerfection to PaperThinDisguise
* MeetCute: Subverted. Ali does this with Sweety, Sheena, and Shonali, but none of them return his affections. He meets his one mutual love interest via completely ordinary means.
* NoNameGiven: Kabir, Sheena, and Sunehri don't even have last names in the credits. Aryan does, but it's never given during the film, and his ''first'' name isn't revealed until after {{Intermission}}.
** Averted with Sahir Khan, he introduces himself with his full name to Jai.
* NotSoDifferent: Jai and all the thieves; Kabir, Aryan and Sahir.
* PermaStubble: Kabir
* PoliceAreUseless: Jai seems to be the only competent person on the Mumbai police force.
* RussianRoulette: [[spoiler: Aryan]] forces [[spoiler: Sunehri]] to play this. [[spoiler: Turns out to be FakeRoulette.]]
* SamusIsAGirl: Sunehri's and Victoria's introduction
* {{Sidekick}}: Ali
* StuffBlowingUp: "Dhoom" is an onomatopoeia for an explosion. Yeah. These movies are ''so'' action packed that [[AwesomenessIsVolatile even the title is exploding]].
* TheDitz: Monali
* TheGlassesComeOff: Jai in the first film. Referenced with his sunglasses in the second, by which point he's apparently gotten contacts.
* TheMole: [[spoiler: Sunehri]]
* ThemeSongReveal: Upon rewatching, Aryan's lines in "Dil Laga Na" make [[spoiler: the next scene's LoveMakesYouCrazy]] less abrupt.
* ThirdPersonPerson: Sunehri
* TraintopBattle
* VillainOpeningScene
* WhatASenselessWasteOfHumanLife: Uttered almost word for word after [[spoiler: Kabir's suicide.]]
* WhereDoesHeGetAllThoseWonderfulToys: Aryan's assorted gadgets.
* WorthyOpponent
* YouFailPhysicsForever: Everywhere, but perhaps best exemplified by Jai's entrance in the second film. He emerges on a jet ski ''from underwater'' at high velocity, soars through the air, and lands safely on a boat.
** Actually, while the jump onto the boat may still be pushing it, those 'jet ski's' actually can go underwater for quite a while. Good luck holding your breath though.
** Dhoom 3 perhaps sets the record for this, perhaps due to the new director's emphasis on RuleOfCool. Some examples include:
