L.A.-set Bollywood film plays for broad laughs

There's a word used in Hindi films to mimic the sound of blows during a particularly ludicrous action scene: Dishoom! -- as in: "Biff! Pow!" The madcap "Kambakkht Ishq" has plenty of dishoom. It's also entirely lacking in wit.

But the fact that it's one of the most expensive Hindi-language films ever made and features such curiosities as Hollywood he-man Sylvester Stallone, "Superman Returns" star Brandon Routh and Bond girl-turned-reality star Denise Richards might draw enough of an audience in India to make a solid dishoom at the box office there. Stateside, the film opened July 3 via Eros Entertainment.
