1. The sound when a bullet flies through the air, or someone lands a punch in an old Bollywood movie (like the old pow, bam in 1960s Batman)

2. Used similarly to the expression Mojo to refer to libido, self-confidence, style and sex-appeal. E.g. if Austin Powers had been Indian, he might have lost his Dishoom and not his Mojo!

The word Dishoom probably goes back to the 1975 Ramesh Sippy film Sholay with Amitabh Bacchhan which is considered to be a Curry Western and is the highest grossing film in Bollwood

Lying flat refers to a defeatist lifestyle in Chin, where people stop working, desiring material acquisition, and tap out of any social life – sometimes for good. By lying flat, young people are participating in a kind of non-cooperation movement, rather than surrendering themselves to China's oppressive work culture where they see little hope of social mobility.

the exagerated sound of a gun shot in Bollywood movies. It's the common anamanapia (sp?) associated with a bullet flying through the air. DISHOOM!
