The Dhoom series:

The original Dhoom, and its sequels, may been the subject of many jokes, but that does not take away from its huge popularity. The first film of the Dhoom franchise, written by Vijay Krishna Acharya and produced under the Yash Raj Films banner, revolved around a gang of biker-robbers and a cop, Jai Dixit (Abhishek Bachchan) who tries to catch the gang with the help of a local bike dealer/racer, Ali (Uday Chopra). The movie was a commercial success and paved the way for its more successful second part - Dhoom 2, which released in 2006. The multi-starrer, which had Hrithik Roshan, Aishwarya Rai and Bipasha Basu, along with Bachchan and Chopra who reprised their roles as Jai and Ali, was the highest-grossing Indian film of 2006. Dhoom 3, released in 2013, had the star cast of Aamir Khan and Katrina Kaif along with Bachchan and Chopra. It broke a lot of records and officially became the first Indian film to earn Rs 500 crores, worldwide.
