10:47 AM: There is @akshaykumar sporting a man bun and military print skirt(?). Err. Okay. #Dishoom

12:02 PM: Big budget has ensured #Dishoom has an interesting set of celebrities doing cameo roles. Cricketers and film stars alike.

12:08 PM: Of course there has to be a monologue of not doing desh se gaddari right before the climax. Token Patriotism. Check. #Dishoom
